Poodle-isation: A personal response to animal modification

Amelia Rowe, MFA candidate, School of Visual & Performing Arts

 

Poodle-isation: A personal response to animal modification is a project inspired by personal anecdote: an empathic encounter with a show poodle, a creature with a complex history of having its appearance modified to satisfy humans. Poodle-isation represents my conceptualisation of the experience that I define as 'the type of care provided to a young girl by a loving mother, resulting in feelings of strong association with a show poodle when the daughter reaches middle age'.
