adidas Originals presents a short film Hourglass, the second chapter of collaboration with renowned American artist Daniel Arsham and announced the second sneaker in the series – New York PRESENT.
Chapter two of ‘Hourglass’ continues to explore the notion of societies expectations about time focusing on the present. As the film jumps from past to present, the presence of an hourglass remains an iconic symbol that connects each fleeting moment in time. This time around, the journey continues in Rio where Arsham has traveled to prep for his zen garden project. The plot unfolds to reveal tensions developing with the upcoming installation. Interlaced with scenes from the past, the film depicts Arsham who is transported back to his childhood only to reveal memories that have informed his creative practice today. The documentary style format and film treatment further blends and distorts ones understanding of linear time creating an atmosphere of mystique and encapsulates the spirit of Arsham’s artistic work. – from adidas
