About the work

In his series "Future Relic" (2013-2018), Daniel Arsham imagines various everyday objects as archaeological discoveries from a future, dystopian world. The eroded objects presented by Arsham show us how new technologies quickly become obsolete.

In this set of 9 pieces we can see how they would be the remains of an archaeological excavation in the future, a camera, a first generation cell phone, double deck cassette player, a keyboard, a Walkman. Everyday objects that get a new meaning in these sculptures created with plaster and crushed glass fragments.

FUTURE RELIC 01 presents Arsham's petrified objects which serve as anthropological relics. Arsham imagines these objects buried for years and later discovered in an archaeological dig, but regardless of the time elapsed, a relic from the future signifies obsolete technology, a sign of human progress, or an entropic future.
