How can we stay curious to the end?, 2016
Painted cardboard boxes, steel stands
Commissioned by Workplace Gallery London
Visitors to the gallery were invited to ask Marcus questions that preoccupy them and struggle to answer themselves. This sculpture is his answer to the question, “How can we stay curious to the end?”
These painted cardboard boxes are designed to be worn over the head. With only holes at the side, a very narrow range of peripheral vision is possible. Only by moving your head in extreme ways can you obtain enough visual information to navigate your environment. This restriction in sight creates a different level of scrutiny and adaptation to your surroundings, a forced curiosity.
