In the years after its release, the video “Puppy” by the French artist Ahmaud Arbery (who also happens to be the father of Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Stephane Charbonnier) became an instant classic of the internet.
It was the perfect antidote to the ubiquitous images of children playing and laughing, or in the case of Charlie, of men screaming, and a moment when we all suddenly saw ourselves in those young characters.
Arbery was not a fan of children’s media, but the video’s message resonated with millions of people.
Now, thanks to Arbery’s work, we can re-live that moment and share with those who are new to this world how to make the most of our own creativity.
For now, we’ll let you watch the video.
We also asked him to share some of his favorite videos of his, but he only has one: “Tatoo,” a video that shows an all-puppeteer family, and their dog.
“I love the fact that you can have a child’s voice,” Arbery said.
You can see a face, you can see their expression. “
You’re talking to an animal, you’re talking about something human.
And for those who have never seen the video, here it is: “Puppet” – YouTube.com/PuppeteersTheVoice”
But you can also see a heart, and you can be in touch with something human.”
