Extra: An off brief personal project

I really like lolcats (hence the name of the blog) and what they stand for, so when Ed Kelly sent me a link for a Lolcat exhibiton in London I was intrigued. The exhibition itself wasn’t exactly what I would like to do with lolcats as a theme, but thinking about it sparked an idea for a little personal project. The problem is it isn’t really social, but I feel it has some relvance to portraying internet culture through its memes.

My plan is to take picture of myself posing of famous lolcats and post them in separate section here on my website “lol-kat.com”. Simple.

Here are some of my all time favorites that I’ve picked out for now:

While this idea doesn’t involve collaboration it’s source material i crowd sourced. So in a way it fits into my MA, and in a way it really doesn’t. I’ve decided to make it no matter what, and figure out later if I’ll put it into the final exhibition.
