Dog art

Every Dog Has Its Day by Chris Cooper opens at Harcourt House in Edmonton.

Cooper writes that she sees dogs as existing in an overlap of the human and animal spheres: augmented by centuries of breeding and training as well as their awkward loads, these bronze dogs are doubly so. The suggestion here, that helpfully intended technologies become oppressive out in the wild, or that maybe they weren’t helpfully intended at all, is intriguingly complex. The dogs’ cybernetics cannot simply expand their abilities, but they change them for better and for worse.
