SIDESHOW seems like a distant memory but you can relive the joy of Toby Poolman’s Marble Run through this immersive film by Immatters. An in depth look at the workings of the mechanical installation that took centre stage at SIDESHOW, the film magnifies the industrial soundscape and movements of the marbles’ journey.
Constructed from old bus parts and a rusting grain auger, Toby designed the Marble Run as an interactive installation for the SIDESHOW project that lived opposite Blackhorse Rd station on Forest Road for six months last year. SIDESHOW was a collaboration between Blackhorse Workshop and specialist regeneration company U+I with the design for the build led by Ehk! architects. Enjoy the clunk, clunk, whir all over again.
