This artwork, 'Eroded Brillo Box' is an object perhaps found in a future archaeological dig site. Arsham used Warhol's iconic 1964 Brillo box at the base of the work as part of a collaborative project between the artist and the Andy Warhol museum. This resin sculpture is a limited edition piece part of only 500 units made. This edition was released on 7/17/20.
Daniel Arsham's work explores the possibilities of architecture, performance, and sculpture in a way that manipulates and distorts our understandings of structure and space. Guided by his fascination for architecture and structured space, the artist often crafts installations that create the illusion of instability or erosion of the gallery walls they're placed on. They appear to be dripping, folding or oozing. Arsham is also active as one half of the art and architecture collaborative Snarkitecture, along with Alex Mustonen.

Daniel Arsham employs elements of architecture, performance, and sculpture to manipulate and distort understandings of structures and space. Arsham became widely known at the age of 25 when he was asked to design his first of several sets for Merce Cunningham’s productions. His practice has been guided by a curiosity for architecture and structured space, stemming from childhood memories of seeing the wreckage of Hurricane Andrew in his hometown of Miami. Some of his best-known works include a series of installations that destabilize the solidity of gallery walls, such that they appear to be dripping, folding, oozing, or absorbing furniture; also figuring among his oeuvre are pixelated clouds based on photographs and rendered with hand-colored spheres, and sculptures made from granulated materials like crushed glass. He is also active as one half of the art and architecture collaborative Snarkitecture, along with Alex Mustonen.
