Back to the Future

New York-based artist Daniel Arsham explores this interplay between technology and the passing of time in Welcome to the Future, a new exhibition opening in Miami. He’s created a fictional archaeological site filled with 20th-century media devices–Nintendo controllers, boom boxes, electric guitars, SLR cameras, BlackBerry phones, VHS tapes, Walkman players, film projectors, portable televisions, radios–all rendered in ancient geological materials, like volcanic ash, crystal, and obsidian.

The installation, opening November 15 at nonprofit art space Locust Projects, is part of the annual art show Art Basel Miami Beach. via Fastco
