My Dog

Earlier in the term we participated in Digital Art Treasure Hunt 2014 and were introduced to a sculpture called My Dog by one of Japans most popular contemporary artist Yoshimura Nara. We loved the childlike simplicity of this sculpture and decided to investigate its history.

We were fascinated to discover that a version of this art work has been reproduced as a very special Doggy Radio in a glossy white plastic.The dog's red nos lights up when you turn it on. The volume control can be found underneath the dog's chin.

Warren has great hand eye co-ordination and made his own version using Paint software. We were impressed by his efforts.
