SCADpad NORTH AMERICA
SCADpad North America is intended to reflect a quintessentially American spirit of self-determination and to celebrate SCAD's locations in Savannah and Atlanta.
SCADpad North America Exterior
The interior walls of SCADpad North America feature leather strips affixed in a classic Navajo pattern, and rendered in a red, white and blue American palette. The installation was created by Marcus Kenney, a SCAD photography M.F.A. grad who works primarily in embellished sculpture.
SCADpad North America Interior
On the ceiling of SCADpad North America, Marcus created an embellished surface using sequins, fur beads, threads, glass eyes, leather, chain, buttons, pins and embedded LED lights. He incorporated the ventilation grate as a primary design element, modeling the eye after the eye atop a pyramid on a dollar bill.

On the floor and door, there are rulers laid end-to-end, which Marcus sees as the original mom-and-pop store’s business card. There is chain laid in the middle of the rulers as homage to the U.S. rail system.
