Look at the lovely smile on the face of the young man looking at cat images in the video about a new Exhibition. The exhibition is on at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens and it’s called ‘How Cats Took Over the Internet”. Obviously part of the reason cat videos have become an obsessive delight for so many is they just make us feel good.
Let’s be grateful that the Museum has done us the great favor of honoring ‘The Cat Video’ phenomenon and have set it up in such a way that we have a choice. We can look at it all as acaxdemic/philosophical issue of why certain things become popular if that is what interests us. or we can indulge our cheesy side and just go ‘Awww” as we explore the infinite cuteness of all thingsw cat.
Of all the obsessions New Yorkers can have, cat videos are one of the most joyful, heartwarming and cute ones ands who doesn’t need more joy, love and cute in their lives. So go to the exhibition and indulge.
