Your Leica a Future Relic?

"Future Relic" by artist Daniel Arsham

“Future Relic” by artist Daniel Arsham

Several hundred years from now, your Leica M Mononchrom may be unearthed in an archeological dig. That is the premise of artist Daniel Arsham and his project “Future Relics.”

Arsham casts modern day technology like, cell phones and Leica cameras in a variety of materials. He then degrades the cast objects to represent what they will look like coming out of a future archeological dig.

“Future Relics” are interesting objects, and Arsham has expanded his expression with  a supporting video. The video is very stylized, and is more of a performance piece. If you love what Arsham is making, these pieces are for sale through his web site.
