One of the major identifying features of Surrealism is transforming the role of an object. Whatever the object may be, regardless of its intended purpose it no longer maintains its ordinary identity. There is so much surrealism packed into each video made by PES. His films remind me of the stop-motion animation style found in the films of Jan Svankmajer. What I find most fascinating is how he consistently makes use of common objects and gives them alternate purposes. In this film, Western Spaghetti, he turns a simple process of making spaghetti into a highly creative work of art.

This particular film was a winner at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and was voted the #2 Viral Video of the Year by TIME Magazine.  PES has gone on to create shorts for CoinStar, Washington State Lottery, and Scrabble. See more PES films on YouTube.
