With my generative film Dog Days, I attempt to  capture my dog Penny’s experience of time during lockdown. I filmed a week of Penny’s life and wrote a Max/MSP patch that extracts six random 5-second portions in sequence, morning to bedtime, amounting to one 30-second day. I evoke the experiential nature of time, giving as much space to Penny’s shorter but intense interactions with the environment as to her longer rests. Displaying four days simultaneously provides a choral feeling of these shifting speeds of Penny’s days, conveying their arbitrariness and interchangeability. The program selects one day to play sound, changing randomly.
