Brown presented the video piece made in Istanbul entitled ‘Sticky Knots’ in order to open up the discussion around the human relationship with stray dogs. The subject of this video questions our usual understanding of ‘the stray’ as something to be feared. Rather in Istanbul, stray dogs are embraced and taken care of by their local communities. Is this the extreme version of the ‘sticky knots’ that tie dogs to humans, and humans to dogs as proposed by Donna Haraway in her book ‘When Species Meet’?
