As part of Art Basel Miami Beach 2014, Locust Projects presents "Welcome to the Future," a major site-specific installation by Daniel Arsham. For the installation, Arsham has transformed the gallery into an excavation site, digging trench in the gallery’s floor that holds thousands of calcified artifacts. Mounds of boomboxes, electric guitars, SLR cameras, BlackBerrys, game controllers, VHS tapes, Walkmans, film projectors and portable televisions, rendered in crystal, volcanic ash and other minerals fill the pit. The trench presents these devices as a mass below our feet, in a grand gesture that rewrites narratives of production, history and discovery. "Welcome to the Future" will be open to the public until January 2015.
