Through collaboration with Hayles & Howe, a manufacturer of architectural ornamental plasterwork, Marshall has developed a range of plaster mouldings that integrate digital design technologies with traditional manufacturing skills. The installation Morse, a spiral of dots and dashes, relates to the binary nature of digital information. A separate work, Penrose Strapping 1, is a stunning contemporary example of traditional strapwork with scrolls, arabesques, and loops.
Justin Marshall’s practice spans sculpture, installation and design. His recent work has been ceramic or plaster based. Marshall is currently Research Fellow in 3D digitalproduction at University College, Falmouth.
