Just Two More and My Collection Will Be Complete

Just Two More and My Collection Will Be Complete
-Installation by Anthony Marshall
-Music: Soundtrack to Pride and Prejudice (starring that Keira Knightley girl)

There I was, utterly fondling a luxurious brocaded silk fabric, thinking about the scarf I was about to make with it.  As I struggled to find the perfect pairing of color and texture, it struck me.  I was the son of a “garage-sale-queen,” and here I was about to spend $30, before the coupon of course, on a couple yards of this lavish fabric, all for the sake of luxury. 
            My work explores a manic need to emulate luxury and wealth.  My work is built from thrift store trinkets, clearance goods, and low-grade materials.  Everything about my work is a fa├žade, barely able to withstand even the briefest glance.  I use flamboyantly baroque displays filled with color and texture, as a distraction technique screaming, “Look at me, instead of the wall that just might collapse on you at any minute!” I create awkward visual struggles between hasty cheap constructions, and gaudy shrines of lavishness and fortune, while exploring aesthetic values, materiality, theatricality, and faux abundance.

video
This video is a development/pre-visualization of  the pneumatic driver for my kinetic sculpture. The green cylinder is a air valve that will start/stop air flow when commanded from an Arduino. The white cylinder is a pneumatic cylinder with a hollow steel tube and a return spring attached to the plunger. When air is applied the tube is driven forward, and  the air flowing from it forces the LED out the end of the device as shown. I used this visualization to simplify my final design.
