The issue that I try to explore both in Dog and in my earlier productions is the search for a mental image that arises in the recipient's mind in response to the signals, clues and leads presented to him. In the presented production, the film An Andalusian Dog (Un Chien Andalou) by Luis Bunuel from 1928 was divided into basic components, that is, into approximately 32,000 individual frames. Later, they were combined in such a way that each of the presented images contains the sum of the frames that make up one shot of Bunuel's film. The greater the dynamics of the actors in a given shot, the more the phases of the characters' movement become visible, and the images begin to resemble the Etienne-Jules Marey chronophotographs. Watching a series of 300 frozen shots, the viewer can construct an independent version of the film, in his own, unconstrained time and pace.
