Through a combination of art, architecture and performance Daniel Arsham explores the concept of natural versus manufactured.

Daniel Arsham's explores the improbable
- OCT 14, 2013

Daniel Arsham's work is a combination of art, architecture and performance. His main intention is to challenge the perception of physical space through architecture's performance of the improbable, destabilizing its structure and changing its visual texture. Through this performance, Arsham explores the relationship between natural and manufactured and intention and happenstance. His pieces are optical illusions where the architecture has the capacity to melt, erode and ripple.

In other works, he hides figures in the architecture as if the wall were a soft textile that creates complex drapes that reveal the human form beneath. Arsham also explores the representation of everyday objects that seem to be eroded with sculpture made of crushed glass. Almost like fossils, the objects express the passing of time and the unstoppable decomposition of matter.
