Artist Daniel Arsham has an exhibition at Philadelphia’s Fabric Workshop Museum called Reach Ruin, which includes hundreds of cameras sculptures created out of plaster, glass, stone, and sand.
Pete Brook over at Wired’s Raw File writes that the exhibition causes one to question the camera’s form over function. That is, how much of our fascination with cameras comes from the way they look and feel in the hand rather than what they are capable of producing?
In addition to Arsham’s three dimensional sculptures, the show also features some of his four dimensional work. As a performance art piece, one of his works features dancers drawing on the ground with plaster cameras.
