Hello! I'm a creative professional living in Wellington, New Zealand. With a passion for all things creative, I strive to create engaging and captivating content across a wide range of mediums.

What makes an internet famous cat video?
We wanted to explore the relationship between video and audio and how they both come together to influence a viewer and how we could use them simultaneously to heighten ones experience.
As a group, we found it interesting as to what goes into a cat video that makes it become ‘internet famous’ and found it intriguing the way some people treat their cat, as in what they say to their cat and almost shove a camera in its face, all to fit in with the internet sensation of cats.
We want to project these factors on to people to get them thinking about how we treat cats in those situations and see how they feel and react when put in a situation that may be overwhelming and awkward for them.
The whole idea of our installation is to get people thinking about how cats feel when put in a situation that can be overwhelming and frightening for them, therefore making the viewer feel awkward and in the position of the cat.
