What is it?

Seen at SFU. If you take the stairs under the Rotunda to the bus stop, this structure hangs above you. It appears to be--oh I don't know--unwound videotape? used to create a kind of suspension bridge from one side of the Rotunda to the other--about 10 meters. Christo-inspired installation art? A statement about the accelerated aging of "new media"? Bored/drunken end-of-semester undergrads on a prank?

Dear Faith:
SFU is trying to get some street cred. So they thought they'd fling some running shoes up there. But when it came to the point they just couldn't do it. So they flung shoelaces up there and hoped it would be good enough. CJ
