good girl, 2006
dvd 2:17

Good girl is animated by use of collage and stop motion animation. A dog puts its head up as it expects to be patted. A hand appears and pats the dog. The dog wags its tail. The hand disappears. The dog stops wagging its tail and lowers its head. Again it raises its head expectantly, and the hand appears, and, again, the dog is patted, wags its tail. This interaction is repeated.  ‘good girl’ considers the (dog’s) relationship with recognition and identity.
