My dear friend Sam
In April 2021, a street dog called Sam went viral on social media for traveling across Izmir in public transportation, including by ferry, taxi, and metro. His actions came timely for a political struggle towards better animal welfare in the city. Expanding on this true story, the project enters into the perspective of Sam by tracing his path across Izmir, engaging in observations of the social and political configurations of the city.
