Daniel Arsham's "FUTURE RELIC 07"

This past Friday, Daniel Arsham released his seventh installment in the Future Relic series. Creating objects seemingly pulled from a futuristic archeological dig, these objects references ever-evolving tech and humanity’s eagerness to throw it all away. Ironic in its current obsolescence, Arsham’s seventh object is a walkman. The Future Relic pieces are cast in volcanic ash, crystal, and other materials, giving them delicate intricacy and a crumbling core. Arsham has been creating limited pieces of this collection for the past few years, regularly selling out of the neo-démodé artefacts. This latest issue, as its predecessors, is also sold out.
