“cat_purringcomfort.mp3” is a reflection on our non-human companionship and relationship with animals. This work consists of a waveform of a cat’s purr; content and happy vibrations suspended within the cube. This kind of low-frequency vocalisation in cats has shown to present itself in positive social situations, as well as self-soothing moments for the cat themselves. A popular association with cats that is also prominent as a soothing and calming sound for humans serves as a moment of peace and comfort in its experience for those that choose to listen. The presence of the purr seeks to remind the viewer of these soothing moments, a reprieve from the expanse of space and a return to something familiar; creature comforts.
