Just Like a Dog
City dogs that born in town and forced to live in the nature. They live on the shore. Maybe the most innocuous form of the nature. If I would be in their shoes, I would definitely think likewise- live on shore -. I think the shortest way to meet the nature is being close to water. What would human do if it would be in the same situation? I wanted to made identification with dogs. They were townsmans, even they had institutions that connected with their earring numbers. Does it look familiar? Maybe it's an inevitable end with preferred or imperative. Living alone, moving with a group, shelter, victual, sexuality; these are the basic requirements for creatures. Interaction with nature, living together and struggling each other, is natural.
