Mary Marsh

Mary V Marsh’s work explores the experience of reading; how we perceive information through changing formats, and how our brains store and access ideas and experiences. TransitStory, an installation of linoleum-cut prints illustrates people on their daily commute reading books on various devices. Prints hang in layers to create a space like the inside of a bus or train car – inviting the audience into a crowd of commuters who are experiencing private journeys through reading on a shared ride with strangers. Vertical Scroll : Unorientable, a seond installationis a scroll of newspaper articles formed into a möbius strip. With no beginning or end, and with only one side, it demonstrates the challenging realm of orienting oneself in the midst of digital reading.
