Daniel Arsham work utilizes varied elements, including architecture, performance, and sculpture, to subvert conceptions of structures and space. The crystal Game Boy features a translucent replica of the Super Mario Land cartridge, which can be inserted into the back of the console, making Crystal Relic 002 the first piece from Arsham's Crystal Relic series to include two interlocking elements.
Arsham is a contemporary visual artist whose work exists between architecture, art, and performance. He manipulates and reinterprets existing materials and structures, perhaps most spectacularly in his latest Future Relic projects. He has collaborated with numerous artists and brands, including NAS, Pharrell Williams, Adidas, Hajime Sorayama, Alex Mustonen (Snarkitecture), and Kim Jones (Dior) to name but a few.
