A TIRED DOG IS A GOOD DOG,
2020 -2021
(in progress)
mixed media, dims variable





A meditation on familial bonding, disability, and group identity through the overlap of human and canine behavior. A combination of original 16mm film, family records spanning 1990-2004 which document my family's farm breeding and showing Rough Collies, alongside 3D scans and animations, I perform choreographed exercises which examine dog sociality and the pack - dog-rules, dog-nature, dog-time - with an eye to a future, interspecies ecology.
