Wolf Head (with sound)

I made this sculpture of a wolf head from ceramics, with sound recordings of humans at a tailgate field emitting from it. I wanted to make an analogy with humans getting drunk and playful and bonding, but also sounding lonely and desperate…like a wolf howling for its friends, or using its mournful sound for communication and to place itself in a context with other wolves. Why howl, if not for locating oneself within a community.

People say New York is no place for pets, but it seems New Yorkers didn’t get the memo.
I have been working on a series of ceramic sculptures of “Dogs of the West Village”, inspired by New York’s abundance of visible dogs in public space.
