Rawhide was once an important material that served man in the making of objects; today, it is
barely used whilst the knowledge of its production is not so common. I thought to myself how to
work with rawhide for this exhibition, as I was looking to match the moment of amazement I got
from the film of starting a fire using a chunk of ice.

The tools for the domestic hunter are made from the only commonly available source of rawhide:
molded dog bones. In this project, the rawhide molded “bone” that serves as a reminder of the pray
for the domesticated dog is now in our hands. The skin of an animal is used to kill another animal.
