Abstract
This footage follows two dogs and two cats around the house, with the camera sometimes zooming in on the animals’ eyes looking directly towards us and on their furry bodies and thus creating a sense of intimacy with them. Throughout these domestic scenes, possibly shot at JoAnn Elam's home in Chicago, the cats and dogs interact with each other and with Elam and her friend knitting in the living room. Like several other elements in the collection, such as Cats, Cats & Kittens, and Cats on Bed, this footage reveals Elam’s fascination with pets in general and cats in particular, as impenetrable creatures with whom we however share our homes.
