Animal 6th sense.

by Savvy

Daniel Arsham’s Animal Architecture drawings.
i love them all so much.

a)because i love etching,
b)because i love animals and
c)because they are etchings of animals (see b) and floating geometrical shapes. FLOATING. SHAPES.
the juxtaposition of these objects within a natural environment emphasises the contrast between them and highlights the fact that these objects are un-natural? hence defying nature and its laws, such as gravity?

the piece each uses this traditional etching-like technique to portray  pieces of modernist architectural ruins next to animals and lush nature. the animals in each piece are used by arsham to portray what he calls a ‘post-human quality’.” – – you got that right.
