In this episode of A Life Less Ordinary, find out what the year 3019 is like for New York-based artist Daniel Arsham. One of America’s most exciting contemporary artists, Arsham incorporates a near-scientific approach to art in order to transform ordinary objects — cameras, cassette tapes, mobile phones — into archaeological discoveries from a future, dystopian world. In this studio visit, he tracks his development from early forays in photography and painting, to a formative collaboration with Merce Cunningham, through his work today. With his collaborative design practice Snarkitecture, Arsham creates art and architecture installations across the globe and his recent collaboration with renowned luggage brand Rimowa sold for over three times its high estimate in a single lot, online-only sale at Sotheby’s.
