Eroded Printed Book Sculptures

Daniel Arsham Boasts a New Piece for His 'Future Relic' Collection

— August 28, 2019 — Art & Design
'Future Relic' is a series of pieces by contemporary designer Daniel Arsham that explore the essence of temporality and the meaning of permanence. The creative has made a name for himself through modern sculptures that fuse together concepts of art, architecture, and design.

Daniel Arsham's iconic sculptures have always been defined by a clean-cut aesthetic and some boast signature eroding features that communicate the passing of time. The latest release is dubbed 'Fictional Nonfiction: Archaeology' and it takes on the form of a book. The Future Relic will be available to consumers online, through digital auction house Paddle8 who is currently "gearing up for the sale." Like most Daniel Arsham originals, the sculpture is limited — only 500 units will be produced. Each will come in custom Arsham Studio packaging.
