laika come back!

Laika was a Soviet space dog who was one of the first animals in space and the first to orbit the Earth. This experiment was performed to prove that a living organism could survive being launched into orbit and continue to function under conditions of weakened gravity. In fact Laika died within hours from overheating and the true cause and time of her death were not made public until 2002

Sputnik 2 was not designed to be retrievable, and it had always been accepted that Laika would die. The mission sparked a debate across the globe on the mistreatment of animals and animal testing in general to advance science.

Series of photo collages and illustrations were self-published as a zin to draw attention to deceitful relation between the dogs and human kind.
