interiordesignmag @danielarsham is a master manipulator. The @snarkitecture co-founder masterminds large-scale installations that distort perceptions of space and architecture, a practice originating from his college years at @thecooperunion. But when not directing his firm, Arsham maintains his own artistic practice characterized by simple yet paradoxical gestures toward preconceived notions of what architecture should be. Such structural experiments run the gamut from crumbling walls to decaying cultural artifacts. Take “3018,” his solo exhibition at @galerieperrotin in New York., open through October 21. Two crumbling vehicles, each an easily recognizable icon of pop culture, occupy the gallery’s ground level. Arsham rendered each in crystal, and volcanic ash, pyrite crystal, selenite, and quartz appear where mechanical components should be. Other works on display, he quips, “make architecture do things it isn’t supposed to do.” This year may be Arsham’s most action-packed. "3018" closely follows “Fun House,” a Snarkitecture retrospective at the @nationalbuildingmuseum, and the release of the firm’s monograph. This fall, he’s launching his own book through @rizzolibooks and designing an exclusive sneaker for @adidas. Text by @ryanwaddoups, 📸 by @guillaume.ziccarelli. @sandow

The future is out of colors. Guess we are back to black and white or white and white?
