Daniel Arsham's Pink Backpack Sculpture Is Pure '90s Nostalgia

Complete with MTV, Nirvana and NASA patches.

Lately, Daniel Arsham has been fascinated with the color pink. Hot on the heels of his Felix the Cat-inspired sculpture is a new piece that centers upon a backpack made up of ash, amethyst, selenite, and quartz. The sculptural rendition features a bevy of embroidered patches that exude ’90s vibes, spanning Nirvana, NASA, Bart Simpson, as well as MTV labels. Additionally, Arsham added a brilliant chiaroscuro effect to the artwork —- “chiaroscuro” refers to the use of light and shade in a work to dramatize three-dimensional objects.

The bag is a part of Arsham’s ongoing “Fictional Archeology” series that purveys decayed iterations of everyday objects. Take a look at the photo above and head over to Daniel Arsham’s official website to view more projects.
