Daniel Arsham is a contemporary artist born in 1980, based in New York. Informed by Arsham’s fascination with concepts of archaeology, adidas Originals by Daniel Arsham is a process of reflection, rediscovering adidas as an enduring cultural symbol. With his unique lens, Arsham has unearthed a way of seeing the familiar objects of today as future artifacts — taking the past, and making it present.
Hourglass – Part 2: Present is the second chapter of a film series commissioned by adidas Originals to accompany an ongoing collaboration with Daniel Arsham. Films that explore the life and thoughts of Daniel Arsham through alienation, discovery & archaeology.
The film also reveals the second sneaker in the adidas Originals collaboration, the “New York PRESENT.”
Made with a leather-lined neoprene upper, the ‘New York PRESENT’ pop with metallic details. Boost cushioning offers a feeling of lightweight responsiveness with every step. Completing the collab, co-branding is present on the tongues.
