1 One Keyframe of Cat Rain

Why does cat always land on their feet? A violation of newton's first law? In 1894, the journal Nature published a series images of falling cat, explained the cat righting reflex, a cat's innate ability to orient itself as it falls in order to land on its feet. We are inspired by this motion, and we tied a phone to a cat - Sesame to reappear this experiment. The captured plane inspired us to develop this digital installation art "the cat rain"
