What must it be like to be caught in a battlefield, such as those of the First World War, during an artillery bombardment, when at any moment, you could be snatched away, like a small bird in the claws of a feral cat.
The video is an iterative animation of a simple graphic design abstracting the scratches left behind by a cat’s claws.
The audio track includes randomly generated variations of the underlying melodic theme.
Screened at the 5th International Video Poetry Festival, Athens, December, 2016.
