The booth of Berlin-based gallery PSM with an installation of American artist Daniel Jackson certainly couldn’t be passed unnoticed in the Art Statements section of Art Basel.

Titled “Accumulation of Dark Matter“, Daniel Jackson created number of strong works, all related to the history of humanity and visions about he end of the world. His strong interest in punk and science fiction gives the work a certain cyber-punk look in the good old Mad Max or William Gibson tradition. In other words: great stuff :-)

The photo above is of the central work in the booth, called Thousand Yard Stare (possible future me), showing an individual sitting on an art-moving crate, doomed to eternity of art handling and commercial failure. Surrounding him are the shards of a thousand vinyl LPs from which he has been chipping away in frustrated boredom.
