I wanted to make art for animals. In order to make art for animals, I needed to know what kind of art animals would like. In order to know what kind of art animals would like, I needed to understand what it’s like to be an animal–what it’s like to see and hear and think and feel and behave like an animal. Thus, a series called Sketches for Art for Animals.
This project is intended to help understand what it is like to land on your feet like a cat.
This is a fourteen-minute video in which I fell and jumped off a bunch of stuff and tried to always land on my feet.
It came after Things My Cats Can Jump on But I Can’t, and before the Cat Jumps/Always Land on Your Feet installations.
