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. 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. This work is a gypsum cement and glass-cast sculpture of a cassette player.
