KAWS Companion at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
NOWNESS released a profound, albeit short film documenting KAWS‘ Companion at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York last month. The piece, which was directed by Jake Sumner, adds to the discussion of the effect KAWS’ character might have had on pop culture. Entitled “KAWS: Companion at the Parade,” the film reminds us that we live in a mass culture that celebrates icons. In the context of Nickelodeon and Disney characters, those which we have integrated into our understanding of the world, those which transcend a generational gap, KAWS’ character stands just out of the norm.
