For about two decades, Daniel Arsham has been experimenting with some sort of archeology of the future through different media, sculpture in particular which represent a large part of his work. Daniel Arsham reproduces everyday items, notably those that have to do with new technologies, sports, or music, in the way that people from the future might encounter them while discovering the remains of our everyday life…
Daniel Arsham’s sculpture “Stow”, in Royal Danby marble first appears as a big rock, but after taking a closer look the viewer notices man-made object emerging from the marble as if fossilized. The objects look like hard drives in which we store our memories, indeed the stone holds the memory of our civilization. But they might also be batteries, or parts of a car, of a motor. The car being our most everyday means of transportation, there is a clash between the idea of movement and the immobility of the marble.
