A Self-Expression and Leadership Programme project like no other has led to an equally novel photo exhibit taking place over the month of October. Jessica Bavinton was curious about where cats go when humans aren’t around, so she began attaching cameras to them to find out. Her project in the Landmark Education programme let to a photo exhibit which shows off, literally, what interests cats. The Islington Tribune made note of the exhibit in a recent story about this Landmark Education SELP project.
Watching the Birdy
October 17, 2008
CAT calendars were flying off the shelves on Wednesday at the launch of a unique exhibition of photos â€“ taken exclusively by felines.
Views Beyond the Catflap, on show at Manor Gardens Community Centre cafÃ© until October 31, gives humans a glimpse into life from a catâ€™s perspective.
Put together by a group of cat lovers, who were curious about where their pets go when they disappear through the catflap, the project has attracted international support. Cats from all over the world are clamouring to take their turn with a collar-cam, which is operated on a timer.
Proceeds from sales of the calendar will go to charity Pets as Therapy. And TV couple Richard and Judy are planning to feature it on tonightâ€™s (Friday) show at 8pm on digital channel UK TV Watch.
Jessica Bavinton, one of the pioneers of the project, said: â€œPeople are delighted. They seem really fascinated. The next stage is to improve the website and we may have another exhibition in another venue.â€
