Mark Rumsey is an internationally exhibiting artist based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He will be creating an installation with his objects of consumption to create a unique, dynamic and thoughtful space inside the university art gallery. Objects of Consumption consists of elements cast of foam from molds made from the packaging materials that once cradled objects of consumption on their journey to the consumer. The work presents newly imagined objects that appropriate their textures and forms from the detritus of an international system of material excess.
