Daniel Arsham prepares to launch another limited edition sculpture, dubbed the “Sand Circle.” Filled with small shards of quartz, the sculpture features two suspended planets for the sandlike mineral to flow against. Unique patterns result each time the creation is flipped, as the different weights yield varying streams in the suspending liquid. As the packaging denotes, the sculpture comes with an instruction booklet and a pair of Arsham Studio handling gloves.
The limited Sand Circle drops in an edition of 500 via Daniel Arsham’s website on January 14.

The Pink Sand Circle will release next Monday January 14th at Noon EST at danielarsham.com. There is so much in this object that resonates with the things that interest me and occupy my work. The idea of erosion and decay, the idea of time passing, the cyclical nature of it being turned over and over again, the moons and Exoplanets. The sand in the work which is in fact small shards of quartz falls at different speeds based on its weight, the white sand being lighter and smaller gets pushed up in the currents of the liquid, the pink sand being heavier falls faster. Much like an erosion in my work the pattern in the sand is unique each time it falls.
