A Conversation With
The Army of Luck, A Display of 520 Waving Cat Figurines
“The Global Pursuit of Happiness, or: The Army of Luck”
is an art installation of 520 Japanese
cat figurines (the waving cats found at many Asian businesses). Their waving arms are equipped with servomotors and wired together, creating a 40 by 13 cat matrix display that can show patterns or even scrolling text (
). The installation was created by German artist
and debuted last month at the
festival in Germany.
