Towering above you as you walk along the street, the pap dogs have their cameras ready to capture every second of your life. The sculpture series containing the paparazzi dogs went viral in 2013, commenting on the constant obsession of society to see every tiny detail of celebrity lives, no matter what the cost. This latest sculpture shows the dogs in a new colour; green, red, and blue. The overbearing nature of the sculpture makes you think about the age we are in, the generation of social media where everyone has a constant need to photograph the tiniest details of their lives. The dogs help us to question the importance of this, are we focusing on the wrong thing? Shouldn’t we be focusing on fostering real and lasting relationships rather than posting a facade of photographs for strangers to like? We should all put down the cameras and spend time with our real amigos.
