Inspired by Exoplanets

23. November 2018

The Arsham Studio x Joya “Exoplanet” must be pieced together by you, creating a ritualistic experience each time you assemble and light the candle

Structural experiment, historical inquiry, and satirical wit all combine in Arsham’s ongoing interrogation of the real and the imagined

Exoplanets are any planet or moon that orbits a star outside of our own solar system. Though there are over 3500 known exoplanets in the universe, little is known about them. This project imagines fictional exoplanets as a multi-sensory experience.

Daniel Arsham has spent time at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of NASA, where much of the focus is on the search of exoplanets. This scented candle set combines Arsham’s own fascination with space and our universe with the processes held within Arsham Studio—fused with Joya’s unique capabilities and fragrance and industrial design prowess.

The scent was originally produced by Joya for use exclusively within Arsham Studio and Arsham’s own international exhibitions. For the past several years, this scent has invisibly permeated Arsham’s exhibitions across the world, and now it is contained within the specimen fill vessel.
