Interview with Kimba: My first dog selfie
Kimba shot and posted his first hairy dog selfie on Facebook. Okay, there's still room for improvement, but maybe it's going to be experimental photo art. Mum Marion Friedl asked Kimba about his dog selfie:
Tell me, how did this dog selfie come about?
Kimba: That was just coincidence. You put the camera down on the floor and I dabbed it with my paw.
Did it work right away?
Kimba: No, first I hit the lightning, then I pawed on the wrong side, but at some point the thing you call a camera made strange noises.
When did you know that you Did you make a work of art with your paw?
Kimba: Well, when I heard the sounds, I was afraid I'd broken something. But you were so happy that I knew: I did everything right and did something special.
Are you satisfied with your dog selfie? You really do not see yourself that way.
Kimba: Man, that's the art of it all.
So would you call it experimental photo art?
Kimba: What is it?
You try something and come in the end a great work of art that you show to other people to make them happy. This is experimental art.
Kimba: If you see it that way, it's animal good experimental photo art.
Feelings Do you have a dog as an artist?
Kimba: Great! Especially since there was a fee for my work that tasted great.
Selfies are in. Want to shoot more dog selfies and make an exhibition?
Kimba: I do not like exhibitions. There are only human legs around me and every two meters I have to stop because people are looking at a wall.
They look at the pictures hanging on the wall and they would Do it with your selfies.
Kimba: Then I'd rather not do any more so I do not have to go to the show. If others want to do that, then people can hang a selfie from their dog on the wall as a postcard or poster. Does not always have to serve me.
Well, maybe you just should not push an artist ...
Kimba: Exactly. It does not help, because if I do not feel like it, nothing happens. And that with the dog selfie will eventually be boring. There are more important things than a dog selfie: walking, eating, sleeping, playing, chasing the cat ...
But Kimba! Does that have to be with the cat?
Kimba: Okay, let's just do it. But let's face it: did the neighbor cat already take a cat selfie? No. But I made a dog selfie and there you can show the cat who is in charge.
Could we please change the subject and leave the cat alone?
Kimba: I'm fine. I'm not telling you what I'm up to. But if we already change the subject: how about playing a game of Frisbee? This is funnier than answering questions and taking a dog selfie.
Well, go ahead and thank you for the conversation. Interview: Marion Friedl/Photo: Kimba
