Hollub Homes Presents: Opening Night
SocialMiami covered the Locust Projects opening night for Welcome to the Future by Daniel Arsham. The daring installation is sure to be the talk of Art Basel/Miami Art Week.
Arsham's installation replicates an architectural dig in the gallery's floor and holds thousands of calcified artifacts of 20th century media devices, including boom boxes, electric guitars, cameras, blackberries, Nintendo controllers, VHS tapes, Walkmans, film projectors, etc. all rendered in crystal, volcanic ash and other minerals. The trench presents the recent past as archeology, a world of technological objects whose obsolescence was built into their design, preserved like petrified wood or the figures of Pompeii.
