Jill Miller + Melody Chang: Dog Pack

April 15 / 6–9pm

Visual artists Jill Miller and Melody Chang collaborated on an augmented reality (AR) environment inspired by urban legends about packs of feral dogs who roamed the Dogpatch neighborhood of SF (home of the ICA SF) during the 19th century, surviving on slaughterhouse scraps from 3rd street processing plants.
