LIAO Chi Yu
A man’s dog died. He felt that his dog has never left, but not sure if it was because he missed the dog or because he was once shared the intimacy with it. In the interview, the man revealed how humans experienced the major dog extinction. He described the event coolly, exploring and speculating on the causes of the event. Then, it jogged his memory shared with his dog.
In the fictional time and space, the long-standing and unique relationship between humans and dogs, which came to an abrupt end in the tide of history. Humans experienced inexpressible, tremendous loneliness and loss when confronting the species that were once close to them were gone forever.
