TOM, the first-ever artwork made exclusively for the canine collector, allows pups to live alongside an important artwork and build a collection just as their human companions do.
TOM represents a new breed -- part Dachshund, part Artificial Intelligence -- capable of communicating with canines through a stylized vocabulary of visual and audio cues. The work encourages conversation between pup and artwork and invites dogs to ponder existential questions of identity.
TOM is available in a limited edition of 25. To reserve yours contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We commissioned Israeli-born Artist Merav Ezer to create a work of art that dOGUMENTA patrons could bring into their homes. She was inspired by responses visitors had to her installation at dOGUMENTA NY. Every TOM is hand-crafted by A Couple of Artists in Broooklyn, NY.

TOM is fitted with high-tech components that, when set to the "On" position, sense motion and engage in a dialog with your pup through a series of breed-specific barking sounds.
