A project by Sarah Waterson and dogs (and their companions).
Dog walks, Tues 16 October- Sat 27 November 2012
Project finale, Best in Show PICNIC; Sat 1 December, 2-5pm, at Furtherfield Gallery – All welcome!

Laika’s Dérive invites London’s dogs and their companions to record a walk in their local area. This walk offers a chance for interspecies communication and a sharing of knowledge that results in a collaborative mapping of each dog/human’s walk.

Each dog is kitted-out with a system that automatically photographs the dog’s favourite vistas and objects on location. The photographs are selected via the sniff and interest time of the dog, and are returned to the human as a series of the dog’s favourite snaps, and displayed on this website.


Join us for Best in Show Picinic  at the culmination of the project where dogs and their collaborators can share their happy snaps and trails of discovery.

Laika’s Dérive-London is part of the Furtherfield’s WWW: World Wild Web exhibition, curated by Alessandra Scapin.

Artist: Sarah Waterson


Participate: To take your dog for a derive, please contact Furtherfield or phone  +44 (0)20 8802 2827

Walks can be booked by one person/dog per day, so book early to avoid disappointment!
