Cats in the Alley

Two separate light projections (gobos) of a cat chasing laser lights in an alley. Pedestrians trigger the laser and cat projections.

"Cats in the Alley" was made for Urban Ideas Creative Placemaking Challenge. Ten groups of creative people mounted installations in the alleys of Winnipeg’s West Exchange District. "Charged with reinventing an alley for one day, each group provided passers-by with the opportunity to look at space differently, to engage in a wide variety of activities, and to experience first-hand how embedding creativity and the arts into our neighbourhoods can be transformational for cities."
