DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoochiez! and the Right to Die.
An experimental review By Channel TWo.
DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoochiez! is a new video work (2012) by Everything
is Terrible!, a self-described "found footage chop shoppe".
DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoochiez! is an active catalog which describes,
invents and destroys concepts as it arranges video footage into flows of
multiple cuts that map the use of dogs in cinema and television.
"We neglected to offer an appraisal of the worth of the work, and add to
the number of words already in the world. Instead, we traced the flows
passing through the video and developed a program of citations that
provide a map of exit and entrance points-a map, as any map, that is as
much about those making as about the territory described-which we hope
will provide openings for a reader who has not yet watched the work, and
provide expanded intersections for those who already have." Channel TWo.
