Following up his Sand Circle sculpture that released earlier this year, Daniel Arsham is now preparing to launch a new limited edition piece titled, Hourglass Blue. The new artwork is a time-keeping device that has been manufactured to the specifications of the famed artist’s studio, made with glass, sand, and two cast objects on the interior.

As you turn the sculpture upside down to shift the blue sand, one of these objects is revealed — either a camera or a quartz crystal. The size of the piece is approximately 9.6” in height with a diameter of 4.5”, donning a run-time of approximately 30 minutes. This is all met with the studio’s uniquely designed packaging, which includes a semi-translucent sleeve, die-cut foam so the piece doesn’t shake around when housed, sealing label, and a pair of white art handling gloves. The packaging will also don a holographic label for authenticity measures.

The limited Hourglass Blue drops in an edition of 500 via Daniel Arsham’s web store on Monday, March 4 at 12 p.m. EST.

For more related news, KAWS recently announced he will be dropping an ALONG THE WAY figure.

“Hourglass Blue” will release next Monday, March 4th at Noon NYC time at danielarsham.com/shop. An object containing a camera at one end, and a cast specimen crystal at the other. As the hourglass is rotated one object is uncovered, and the other begins the process of burial.This kind of cyclical archaeology, and the entropic function which it conveys is something that I’ve been interested in since the beginning of my own work. My Hourglasses are instruments that attempt to bend time and reform our interpretation of it. This device perfectly encapsulates many of the ideas present in my larger body of work; fictional archeology, material manipulation, time travel, science fiction and the occult, and an engineering of our expectations of how objects should function and act.
