Well, I’m not really supposed to cover events that happen to other TNT journalists – but I can’t resist this one. Friends of photographer Janet Jensen (including fellow photographer Peter Haley) had been pestering her for ages about making a certain dog part of her household. Janet had been refusing, and finally they pulled a very conspicuous prank that’s totally worthy of the arts blog – turning Janet’s car into an art installation (a.k.a. furry dog).
It’s amazing what you can achieve with plastic wrap and a whole lot of dog hair salon clippings. Until this morning the car was still posing as a dog on the north side of the intersection of Carr and North 30th Streets in Old Town Tacoma, but apparently Janet’s cleaned it up now. Oh well.
And the dog’s name? Otto. (Geddit? Otto? Auto? Uhuh.)
