Chris Marker, «Cat Listening to Music»

«Marker spent his career obsessing over the way contemporary life seems to both intensify and liquidate our experience of time; in the political as well as in the personal, we are constantly made to feel as if we're moving toward a breaking point, which then is always perpetually collapsing. Cats seemed to embody this experience for him, somehow, perhaps in the way viewers are drawn toward and then down into images of them.»
