An audiovisual narration by Violet Louise, about a woman searching in the internet for traces of her dog who passed away: Pictures from places she traveled, videos, music, photos, data from the internet compose her digital diary. From the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004 until today, we follow the journey of this woman, in a world that stands between dream and reality. With the use of technology, computers, analog and digital musical instruments, she sets up a time-capsule-like mechanism and revives memories and stories of her past.
In a world that changes dramatically, everyday life seems less painful, through the love between man and animal. A dog’s diary is the diary of a woman who renegotiates her losses.
