The work of Daniel Arsham considers our place in time, from a future archeological perspective or through the use of materials such as minerals, crystals, or sand which are associated with time. The hourglass is an object that is expected to measure time through the movement of sand. Presenting this object in the strong and static material of bronze freezes time, inviting the viewer to consider the present moment.
