TELE-PETS 2006 (tele, in greek = far out) video 7.34min
The main character, an artist, discovers that she likes speaking to animals. She wants to find out about what the animals are thinking. With the help of telepathic communication she tries to talk to a dog,Texas. But the attempt is unsuccessful.
She does not give up and therefore starts collecting stories and evidence from people and from books. She finds stories ranging from parrots that see into peoples dreams to dogs coming to terms with their own death. The video ends with a still image from a public event in a park.
Tele-pets is also a research natured project I've started working with in 2006. The project evolves around the phenomenon of telepathy between animals and human beings. At the time being Tele-Pets consists of a video, a webpage (on ninalassila.com/telepets.HTM), live events, documentation in form of photographs, video footage and written reports.
