Daniel Arsham is known for mixing plaster and crystals to suggest an ancient archaeological artifact combined with contemporary topics. His recent NFT artwork represents a digital version of a sculpture from his most recent exhibition at Galerie Perrotin in New York.

Inspired from the Louvre’s collection, the ancient bust will be in a courtyard space Daniel Arsham designed together with Six N. Five. For a year, the sculpture will decay and dissolve and then reform, altering itself every month for a total of 12 months. While it transforms, the courtyard will express the changing seasons — debuting in the spring with birds and a flowering tree through to winter where a soft snowfall covers the ground.

The sculpture and the process will begin again, each year, with the cycle repeating forever in tandem with the seasons. The complete collection of ten sculptures will run at different times, with the final sculpture eroding over a period of 1,000 years!

I tried to create a feeling that this is a real place, and you have the sense that someone has just left the room.
