“In working on this exhibit, I discovered that there were so many cat lovers in our staff,” Tezuka explains to Quartz. “We were all excited about it and looked for ideas to really activate this exhibition for a contemporary audience.”

More videos are in the works, says Tezuka, pointing out that the Japan Society has about a hundred prints in the exhibition to play with. ”The internet is for cats, after all.”
