"Multi-disciplinary" is used pretty casually in contemporary art - yet few artists today are interesting or relevant when they explore other creative realms.

Daniel Arsham (b. 1980) is one of the best young American artists working (relevantly) in different spheres. Originally from Miami, Arsham's career was launched after designing sets for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company (although his background was not in stage design). This was followed by a carte-blanche invitation from Dior to design some of their dressing rooms in the Los Angeles boutique. In 2007 he co-founded Snarkitecture with Alex Mustonen to focus on projects with an architectural bent. They had a significant and impressive presence at several incarnations of Design Miami. 

This sculpture, now heavily sought-after on the secondary market, was Arsham's first "Relic". Similar to his architectural projects, a 90's cordless phone made of plaster or stone, seems to be disintegrating or recently excavated. 

Each of the "Future Relics" have been augmented by a short film created by the artist. 

In March of 2017, Arsham released the sixth example of his "Future Relic" series. Based on a Sony Walkman, the edition, like its predecessors, sold out instantly.
