Everyone Owns A Dog.
‘Everyone Owns A Dog’ opens a channel of engagement and inquiry unto both the socio-economic and political circumstances unique to these parts of the United States.
Amplified by the recent shifts in political power and the 25th anniversary of the pivotal Los Angeles riots, this project looks at the contradictory relationship between Greater California’s fluctuating economic stability and the historically and currently insecure political forefront which has induced a diminishing sense of faith in country.
