畫廊中設置了一系列白色玻璃纖維製的狗雕塑。每一隻狗的頭上都被挖出一個,觀眾可以將頭塞進去,如人類面具的裝置,內裝有螢幕,播放由狗的角度所拍攝的各種影像。攝影機裝在一隻狗的頭上,記錄著牠和其他狗的聚會、吵鬧、進食等內容。雕塑作品的姿勢及面具裝置的位置,造成了觀眾在觀看作品時的不雅姿態,有時屈膝下跪,有時叉開兩腿跨坐,如此便打破了觀者觀看藝術品的傳統方式。儘管觀眾以某種姿態進入了另一物種的視野中,卻仍舊無法完整地詮釋這些狗的動作和肢體表情,如此便進一步點出,此雕塑作品提供了模擬另一物種的可能,但想要真正變換另一個視界是說的比做的還容易。

The gallery installation comprised a series of white fiberglass dog sculptures. The head of each dog contained a human head-shaped opening through which viewers could watch footage shot from a canine perspective. Mounted on the dog’s forehead, the camera documented meeting and greeting other dogs, barking, eating, etc. The positions of the sculptures as well as their sometimes awkwardly placed viewing orifices forced visitors to crouch down and straddle these forms, thereby transgressing the traditional boundary between the work of art and the viewing subject. However, despite the fact that the spectator literally had access to another species’ vision, the sentiments motivating the dog’s movements and actions were not so easily interpretable. Providing a constant reminder that seeing from another’s perspective is easier said than done, the sculptures nonetheless served to facilitate an approximation of species.
