Pop Dogs is a mobile installation from critically acclaimed artist Carlo Sampietro. The project takes the traditional popcorn machine and replaces its edible content with toy dogs. Sampietro uses the replicas of man's best friend as a visual language to discuss the global issue of dog overpopulation.

Popcorn can become appealing after we smell the butter or hear it popping. Similarly, the very sight of an adorable dog can invoke an emotional need to have one even if we lack the space or access to a park. 

Much like a popcorn machine left unattended--more dogs are bred daily throughout the world then can be properly cared for. 

The installation was inspired by the abandoned dogs Sampietro saw during his travels. Compared to the street dogs of Brazil, NYC dogs are pampered like children. The piece is designed to explore the contradiction that what we crave can become undesirable.
The exhibit will travel to Paris, Shanghai, Rio, and New York and reveal how the same problem can cause four specific dilemmas in these respective places
