Marble Run
Miami Beach, FL
2014

This interactive installation was commissioned by the Delano Hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach. A marble run, the classic children’s toy, is reimagined and reconfigured as an all-white, ten foot-high sculptural object. The piece rests atop a large, circular mirrored-plinth, visually doubling the structure.The exaggerated scale and reduced color palette counteract the playfulness often associated with this familiar object.

Visitors are invited to interact with the piece by depositing black glass marbles into various points of the structure. The marbles then descend in unpredictable and circuitous paths, only to be deposited amongst thousands of other marbles resting at the base.
