Eyes, Ears & Pups
- Terre Thaemlitz

Originally posted on comatonse.com April 10, 2001. "Eyes, Ears & Pups" is a series of drawings focussing on children with eye and ear deformities, and the injured attack dogs who love them. It is based on my memory of losing my first pair of glasses at age two, marking the moment I first sensed that the 'natural' way in which I perceived the world through 'defective' eyes was 'incorrect,' and that proper perception is often a learned and conditioned thing.
