Volcanic Ash Keyboards Imagine Technology From The Distant Past [Pics]
Pharrell Williams and artist Daniel Arsham collaborate to create a set of fossilized instruments.
American artist and sculptor Daniel Arsham has teamed up with musician, fashion designer and producer Pharrell Williams to create a series of sculptural keyboards that resemble fossils more than they do musical instruments.
The fossilized re-creations are based off the design of the 1980s Casio MT-500 keyboard and drumkit, the very first instrument Pharrell ever made music on. Arsham modelled the keyboards using a mix of geological materials such as volcanic ash, crystal, and steel, resulting in their archaic experience.
