Standing Cat (Tyra)

Standing Cat (Tyra) is a video/sculpture hybrid depicting a monstrous standing cat. With video of the cat’s head atop a three-dimensional body, Tyra is both a cohesive animal and a headless beast. In response to a collective fascination with cats on the internet, Tyra is present in the space while simultaneously mediated through video, becoming¬†larger than life so to speak.

 

Standing Cat (Tyra) was included in Another Cats Show at 356 Mission, curated by Laura Owens.
