Two Dogs and Ball (Dogs Duet)

William Wegman uses the area framed by the camera as his performance space, employing a single, fixed camera to record the scenes as he and Man Ray, his Weimaraner, act them out. It has been suggested that Wegman's performances with Man Ray are uncanny invocations of broadcast television's manipulations of its viewers. Man Ray and his companion are collectively mesmerized by a tennis ball. Wegman explained that he had created the video by moving a tennis ball around, off-camera, thus capturing the dogs' attention.
