Sit back and watch the 50s become the 60s before your very eyes. You can watch her (the chosen research subject) try to explain what she's experiencing, seeing to Dr. Sidney Cohen, who administered LSD to her at the Los Angeles Veterans Hospital. It would seem to be a hopeless cause, as people suggest, the only way he'd have fully understood, would've been to have taken the LSD himself.

Ever thought what kind of personal information you expose every time you post online an adorable photo of your cat? 

Welcome to today's internet—every website is tracking your every move and anywhere you look you find videos and images of cats. Currently, there are 15 million images tagged with the word "cat" on public image hosting sites, and daily thousands more are uploaded from unlimited positions on the globe. 

"I Know Where Your Cat Lives" is a data experiment that visualizes a sample of 1 million public pics of cats on a world map, locating them by the latitude and longitude coordinates embedded in their metadata. The cats were accessed via publicly available APIs provided by popular social media platforms and photo sharing websites. The photos were then run through various clustering algorithms using a supercomputer in order to represent the enormity of the data source.

This project explores two uses of the internet: the sociable and humorous appreciation of domesticated felines and the status quo of personal data usage by startups and international megacorps who are riding the wave of decreased privacy for all. This website doesn't visualize all of the cats on the net, only the ones that allow you to track where their owners have been.

Here you can see where all the cats of the world live and Here you can learn which country is the most "Cattish" in the world..
