To 'lose one's marbles' is to lose one's mind. From the mid-nineteenth century 'marbles' was also used to mean 'personal effects', 'goods' or more generally 'stuff'. During the late nineteenth century 'losing ones marbles' began to mean 'getting frustrated or angry'. The expression took a little time to mature and was used in both 'anger' and 'sanity' senses for a few decades. It has been suggested that the meaning derives from the Elgin Marbles, the collection of sculptures from the Parthenon Frieze taken from Athens by Lord Elgin in 1806. (An interesting theory, but there's no evidence to support the idea.) What is common in all the early citations is the sense of loss and the consequent reaction to it. - phrases.org.uk (Not a suitable "academic" source, I know.) #lostmymarbles

Nate Hodge, Inhabited Space, April-May 2016 - Memorial Art Gallery (MAG) commissioned Hodge to create this immersive painted environment which "suggests the continuous growth and evolution of a natural ecosystem."
