Ever wonder what your pet is up to while you’re away? Greenwood residents and filmmakers, Michael and Deirdre Cross, were curious as to how their orange tabby, Cooper, filled his days. So, they fitted his collar with a special camera set to snap a photo every two minutes. The resulting photos prove to be surprisingly interesting, although thinking of my own feline, I wondered how many shots ended up being edited. The fact that Cooper is both an indoor and outdoor cat lends variety to his photos, all from a cat’s eye point of view. Cooper seems unphased by both the camera and his sudden fame as both a photographer and featured cat on an episode of the Animal Planet show Cats101.
Is it art? Well, the photos have a certain detached beauty and the images are a reflection of life in a 21st century urban neighborhood. Decide for yourself at the Greenwood Art Walk, February 13, 2009, 6:00 – 9:00pm. Exhibit running at URBAN LIGHT STUDIOS through March 10 URBAN LIGHT STUDIOS,
