Space of Doglessness
This docupoem was created from responses to a call out for thoughts and experiences of permission to be in public spaces without obvious purpose, and the impact of perceptions of dog ownership on this. The work is a further exploration of ideas raised in my Lone Women in Flashes of Wilderness project and was commissioned by the Not Quite Light Festival in Salford in 2019. Space of Doglessness was shown in Salford Art Gallery & Museum whilst I undertook a concurrent public participation event in adjacent Peel Park. The analogue stills work generated from this event will form the basis of another project The Sky is Better Looking Than You, an exploration of women being knowingly and unknowingly photographed in public spaces.
