Space Dog Odyssey is a series of photo-novella performances, or rather, performances that would like to be fictional documentary films. The performances are queer, post-humanist rewritings of major historical events told through the pets of powerful politicians, in a humorous though poetic manner, focusing on the minor, the silly and the subordinate.
