A Peach of a Backpack

July 23, 2008


A Japense designer made a backpack that looks like a big, pink butt.  His name: Yen-Hsiang Skeet Wang.  Can you believe that?  Look at those last two words:  Skeet (and then, right there next to it!) Wang. 

Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together. - Alvar Aalto

The idea for the project is based on reusing things in an innovative way.  In this case, Skeet Want* has refurbished the lower half of a female mannequin into a backpack.  What might you carry in this backpack?  I think I would probably carry Rocket Pops, chocolate-covered bananas, foot-long chicken sausages, hoagies, tubes of cookie dough, and an MP3 player.
