Daniel 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. It is a gypsum cement- and glass-cast sculpture of an archetypal point-and-shoot camera.

Daniel Arsham (American, b. 1980) is a contemporary artist living and working in New York City. Known for his eroded architectural sculptures, his art combines structural experimentation, history, and satire in order to disrupt viewers’ expectations of space and form. 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. Arsham co-founded The House, an artist space in Miami, and Snarkitecture, a New York design firm, and regularly collaborates with other artists including Merce Cunningham and Pharrell Williams.
