For Lifestyle Display Marilyn Schneider uses sculptural installation to examine the visual language of surfaces and logos in commercial spaces. These reconstructions critique the generic aesthetic looks and stylistic attitudes that present the viewer with a seemingly excessive display of wealth and status.

Using imagery derived from luxury trade shows, celebrity homes and high-end fashion stores, the installation investigates what the spectaculisation of the urban landscape reveals about our culture. Synthetic and industrial materials are used to create imitations that critique how different forms of artifice attempt to manipulate the subject in the public sphere.
