After Laika

afterwards animated stills from the video
2003, looped video, DVD 2'30", edition 10 + mastercopy

Two dogs are playing in an emty room. One is locked up in a cell of a coordinate-system on the screen. Its body is permanently touching the frame, the image is stretched or distorted according to the dog’s movement. The result is an artifical universe, in which the spatial dimensions turn to be proportions. A way of perception that would never be possible in reality. The dog is on the voyage of discovery as a successor of Laika, the first dog sent out into the space. The surroundings and the other dog are affected by the one’s behaviour, that this way creates a "Subjective Space".
