In 1997, John Marriott proposed Vomit Star, a six-foot star constructed from fake vomit, for his solo Power Plant exhibition. The proposal was rejected, but regrets lingered. This video emerges from documents of the dark studio play Marriott undertook in the months leading up to the 2010 completion of the vomit star sculpture. Shot and performed by John Marriott, edited by Steve Reinke.
