critter operated chopper, 2011
Video 30:27 min
Two hamsters were filmed during one evening while running in so called "exercise toys". "Exercise toys" are applied in critter keeping to provide activity options for rodents outside the cage. The video reflects the forced agony and emptiness of the life of captive animals and dissects in which way creatures are abused to entertain people.
