Deranged Sellotape (UV Damaged)

This treacle-coloured, crystalline object was found by the Institute of Making’s Creative Director Zoe Laughlin at her family farm. Although completely warped and now totally dysfunctional as a result of UV degradation, it is still recognisably a roll of Sellotape. Sellotape is in fact the trademark of the British brand, but it has become the colloquial name for transparent, cellulose-based tape with an adhesive on one side. This generic trademark has even made it into the Oxford English Dictionary.
