The "Marginal Way" was part of an exhibition which took place at the Boston Center for the Arts, a unique circular building originally built to display a panoramic painting. The exhibition included work by eleven installation artists and structures for housing and viewing the installations designed by Kennedy Violich Architects.

The "Marginal Way" suggested a multi-level landscape within this architectural space. Moving through the architecture, in and around the structures, the viewer encounters a series of 'markers': several vitrines, a bridge, a banister upholstered with text, a directory to internal spaces, and a megaphone balcony. The subtext of these markers reflects on questions of personal location and the possibility of physical and political movement. As a grouping, strategically sited within the architecture of the exhibition, these markers become the viewers' landmarks and mapping points.
