In 2007, Marold received international attention for The Windmill Project, a temporary landscape installation in Vail, Colorado, which seeded a local valley with a mass of light-generating turbines committed to capturing and visualizing the choreography of the wind through a unique landscape. Notably, he recently completed the Shadow Array at the Denver International Airport, a monumental exterior sculptural installation consisting of salvaged beetle-kill spruce logs that engages the viewer with the western sun. Diversity in setting, scale, and technical realization has provided Marold with the opportunities to apply his vision across a broad range of sites while preserving a unity of vision.
Marold maintains a studio Denver, and continues working to invite the viewer to consider new orientations of space, materials, physical forces, and their impact on personal and communal perception. His next major commission, the Solar Drones for Canada’s National Music Centre, will bind the characteristics of the Calgary sky with the interior of the new building through a visual and acoustic experience constructed from flood damaged pianos.
