Shake It Off

Caters News Agency.

What does  this photo  symbolize?

Everyone knows that when Fido gets wet, it’s best to watch out! But a group of artists recently found a way to use a dog’s instinct to dry off to make art. They covered several dogs’ fur with edible paint made of food coloring and cornstarch. When the dogs shook out their coats, they splattered the paint onto canvases. The artists captured the dogs  in action with high-speed photography.

The artists say the works are symbolic. The dogs’ shaking the paint off represents freedom, and the colors symbolize their breeds.

The dogs included in the project were from local shelters. The project aimed  to raise awareness of shelter dogs. Most of the dogs found homes, so the artists consider their project a success.
