Artist Daniel Arsham's Film Starring James Franco

Part two of artist Daniel Arsham's film Future Relic 02. See Arsham's upcoming exhibit, entitled Welcome to the Future, on view during Art Basel Miami at Locust Projects. For the installation, Arsham transforms the gallery into an excavation site, digging trench in the gallery’s floor that holds thousands of calcified artifacts—a muted cacophony of 20th century media devices. Mounds of boom boxes, electric guitars, SLR cameras, Blackberries, game controllers, VHS tapes, Walkmans, film projectors, and portable televisions, rendered in crystal, volcanic ash, and other minerals fill the pit, collapsing linear narratives of past, present, and future.
