For Art Basel Miami Beach 2008
Daniel Arsham is a contemporary American artist who works in gouache, sculpture, and conceptual objects. Clients include Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, and Dior Homme.
Organized by Miami Art Museum (MAM), Daniel Arsham's pulsing light installation Beacon/Miami, at the Bank of America Tower in Miami transformed this landmark of Miami's skyline by making the entire building pulse on and off like a heartbeat. Arsham is well-known for works that transform everyday architecture into reality-bending experiences; this intervention carries over Arsham's ideas onto a mass, urban scale.
