Web 1.0 was invented to allow physicists to share resear ch papers. Web 2.0 was created to allow people to share pictures of cute ca ts.
Ethan Zuckerman

\n

Photographs of cats have come to dominate the web’s image culture. From the cute to the absurd\, millions of cat images are viewed\, modified and shared online each day. A quick se arch reveals websites devoted to nineteenth century cat photography\, cat m emes\, celebrity cat photoblogs and tutorials on how to best photograph one ’s cat.

\n

For the duration of this exhibition\, we will invite various ind ividuals and communities to respond to this phenomenon and share their own collections of cat photographs on The Wall.

\n

In November we will be relea sing a small print on demand publication with 12 specially commissioned tex ts in which various writers playfully consider the place of the cat image i n contemporary culture.
