Treated timber sawdust is generated on a large scale as an industrial waste that requires careful disposal into the environment. It is
considered a hazardous material due to risk of inhalation and
chemical leaching. In Australia treated timber sawdust must be
double bagged and put into landfill.
We wanted to draw a link between disposing of industrial waste and
how people dispose of their unwanted living pets. It is so sad that
since Covid restrictions eased the dog pounds are now full again and
beautiful dogs of all breeds are discarded. We created these gorgeous
doggy collages out of sawdust. We love that such simple lines can
distinguish different breeds of dog and we wanted to highlight how
gorgeous these living creatures are and that they deserve love and
have so much love to give.
