Davies artist statement:

‘A pompom is traditionally an adornment, or an accessory. It should bounce and dangle flirtatiously. The supersizing of this object disrupts these qualities – it becomes gross, heavy and vulgar. This draws attention to the absurdity and excessiveness of the endeavour, placing the frivolity of ornamentation in dialogue with notions of taste and excess’

Wes Anderson and Brad Pitt

Wes Anderson’s latest film, Moonrise Kingdom, is now showing in limited release NOWHERE near me, DRATS!  Cinematic frustration has left me scouring the web for all things Wes Anderson hoping to find an obscure, secret handshake venue releasing the film in the southeast.  It is Wes Anderson, it COULD happen.  During my on-line reconnaissance, I ran across this little commercial gem from 2008.  Anderson teamed up with Brad Pitt for SoftBank, a Japanese mobile communications company. The commercial takes inspiration from Jacques Tati’s Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot. Anderson filmed Pitt in one continuous shot at a French seaside town.
