Dead Dogs Envelope

Caroline Kampfraath created Dead Dogs Envelope to picture how digital means of communication suffocate the exchange of our true emotions. A dog well represents these deeper human needs: proximity, touch, company, warmth, consolation. In times of Corona this work is more actual than ever. Digital communications make us feel deprived of what we are longing for. Even seeing and hearing someone close to you at a distance of 1.5 meters is an impossible surrogate for what drives our relationships. Corona grimly cuts us off from our interhuman foundation.
