Entry Description

I like to play with personification, ie the attribution of human characteristics to animals. Dogs do feel all kinds of emotions human beings experience. But often enough we project our own hopes and fears on our beloved pets. I meet "skeptical dogs" in my studio daily. There's this fraction of a second in which dogs look like they are questioning what we do. And they probably do.
