Description

Daniel Arsham’s petrified objects serve as anthropological relics, imagined by the artist as having been buried for years and only later discovered in an archeological dig. Arsham’s "Future Relic" series signifies an obsolete technology of the post-apocalyptic—a signal of human progress or an entropic future.
