M.T. POCKETS TRAVELING MIDWAY OF CURIOSITIES AND DELIGHTS
Marcus’s creative influence and project/production management style is obvious all throughout this collaborative, interactive installation. This is a 1930’s inspired carnival midway experience that is completely handmade and conceived by Marcus and his outstanding and dedicated comrades.
M.T. Pocket’s Traveling Midway of Curiosities and Delights is a unique collection of 5 carnival-style games. A participant purchases tickets from a performance artist and chooses between a 6ft marble maze, a hat toss, a bean bag toss, a shooting gallery, and a water gun contest. There is also a fortune-telling booth and a calliope accompanied song performance each hour as well as a gallery and gift shop with items made by all the artists involved.
M.T. Pocket’s Traveling Midway of Curiosities and Delights made appearances at Maker Faire in San Mateo CA, twice to Art Outside in Rockdale TX, Lightning in a Bottle in Irvine CA, and stayed up for the duration of The Peralta Junction Project in Oakland CA.
