Daniel Arsham art is well-known around the globe. The artist rose further to fame recently following a trip to Pharrell's 'G I R L' art exhibition at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris. Collaborating with Pharrell was definitely a career highlight, but now he is back and gaining even more credit on his own with his 'The Future Is Always Now' series.

Sticking to his signature aesthetics, Arsham's works depict musical and technological instruments that have fallen to ashes -- literally. Do you remember the Sony Walkman? Well, the once popular piece of technology ,along with others like it, are the main focus of the artists new exhibition.

Using materials like glacial rock dust, volcanic glass, hydrostone, rose quartz and steel, he crafted fossilized versions of the tech devices. He really sheds light on the fact that they may soon be considered archaic.
