RUN DOG WILD’ (2021) was created by attaching a laser scanner to a car that was driven throughout downtown Manila during the pandemic lockdown. The laserscanner projected animated frames of a running dog onto the buildings and cars, overlapping a ‘virtual’ dog onto the physical environment of the city. At the time of its creation the city was under 8pm curfew lockdown, the streets were empty, and one could only imagine being outside roaming free on the streets like the animals do. Instead, everyone was ‘connected’ inside use various technological means. RUN DOG WILD overlaps a virtual animal onto a physical space like a daydream of a person locked inside. The piece could only have been achieved during the city’s lockdown state, whereas now the gridlock of 24/7 traffic has re- entered life of the city’s inhabitants.
