Around 36 000 years ago, when humans were still hunter-gatherers, the wolf was the very first animal to be domesticated. Today’s large variety of dog breeds stems from wolfs, which is the result of selective breeding. This also applies to many of the natural produces surrounding us in our daily life – fruits and vegetables, plants, pets, life stock animals etc. By means of methods like selective and mutation breeding, these organisms have become very different from their previous forms. Nature has evolved in a direction adapted to human physiology, cultural preferences and the logic of the market. The wolf pack series portray this aspect of our relation with nature with wolves, being compressed, so they barely fit into their frames. The series are an ongoing body of works, growing like a real wolf pack.
