 Double Channel Video Installation
with Sound


 DOG : 7 minutes

 FEATHERS : 5 minutes

Dog toys with a piece-of-flesh. The camera focuses on the act of ingestion which is played out in slow motion. The camera moves extremely close to the dog and meat, it just sits there and watches with fascination, the “animality” of the act. The experience (of watching) is heightened by accompanying sound: the underlying low growl is layered with an orchestration of sounds picked from surrounding as these move towards a crescendo, it becomes increasingly puzzling to tell whether it is flesh being ingested by dong of dogs entrails forcing their way out. Dog cannot seed to get rid of met! The accompanying sequence of a boy plucking feathers off a chicken in a hypnotic manner, lands a layer of eeriness to the seamless spectacle.
