What do you get when you put together singer and fashion fan Pharrell Williams, artist Daniel Arsham, and a reconstituted keyboard and drum machine? On September 11, Arsham will unveil new artwork inspired by Pharrell’s instruments from the beginning of his musical career in the 1980s at the Standard, East Village.
According to a press release, Arsham “has located, uncovered, and recast an original keyboard and drum machine in volcanic ash, rusted steel, crystal, and carbon dust” making each item look like “anthropological relics” just being discovered. This unique blend of art worlds will also feature an interactive component, with each viewer having the opportunity to touch the objects with gloves, thus becoming a part of the piece.
