Future Relic 01
Future Relic 01 is a multidisciplinary effort created by debuting director Daniel Arsham, fashion designer Richard Chai and hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz. The narrative seems to follow a futuristic archaeologist unearthing relics of our present, a visually striking apocalyptic scenario filled with plenty of symbolic imagery that is left open to the viewers interpretation.
The overarching theme here is a search for meaning in this shoreline scattered with artifacts of a long lost civilization. This white robed archaeologist emits a sense of wonder to discovering objects we would typically find mundane. Loved the ambient sound work as well, fit the surreal tone of the short film well.
