The Dough Dog is, evidently, made of dough. The combination yeast-flower-water makes the volume rise and expand. In this version the start is a structure of inox wire on which a pink dough has been applied. It is first put in an oven of 37°C and finished at 220°C.

The Wooden Dog is a part of the series No Dog that Matters. The artist deepens and extends his creation Multi-Shape Dog from 2008, a sculpture in which he explores how the shape of a little dog, made of metal wires, can change. Small magnetic balls were dropped on the dog, resulting in a constantly changing shape.
In the new series the idea is to make more little dogs, experimenting with different materials. The artist explores the potential transformations of the form, always with the ‘dog-like shape’ as a starting point.
