Bronze Basketball, Daniel Arsham’s latest release from his Fictional Archaeology series, delivers an eroded, rainbow-hued vision of a future discovery. The colorful patina is achieved by way of the intense heat of a blow torch delivered to the bronze surface. The mesmerizing fine art multiple (Edition of 99, $9500) comes in an eye-catching clear resin Arsham Studios crate that has a frosted effect due to the heavy texture.
Just as unearthed tools, trinkets and technology of ancient civilizations offer clues on how their inhabitants lived and what they valued, so do the objects that are instrumental in our work, play, and obsessions.
