This work is a gypsum cement and glass-cast sculpture of an archetypal point-and-shoot camera. Arsham’s petrified objects serve as anthropological relics in which they are imagined by the artist as having been buried for years, and only later discovered in an archeological dig. Part of Arsham’s “Future Relic” series, this work signifies an obsolete technology of the post-apocalyptic–a signal of human progress or an entropic future.

He is most famous for his series of fictional archeological relics, which explore both the obsolescence of fast-moving technology and the timelessness of cultural symbols.
