Significant Otherness

Observing the diversity of dog breeds, Charles Darwin got inspired for his evolutionary ideas. In looking at the evolution of dogs, I tried to understand the evolution of photography. Some dog breeds are completely detached from their origin, which many understand to be wolves. I used this as a metaphor of how CGI (Computer-generated imagery) could transform our perception of reality to the point that the origin becomes unrecognisable. This work questions the devastating impact that technological progress has had on nature.
