Abstract
Beginning with a black cat sunbathing, “[Black Cat & Green Garden]” opens ground level, cutting frantically. After several restless, feline-centric beats, the camera moves upward, swiping from left to right vigorously, and takes blurry note of the garden at eye level. The camera finally relents; it slows to depict the garden at a manageable rate, surveying (via slow pans) a variety of vegetation that inhabits the yard. The meandering pace gives way to several sharp cuts as the piece sprints to finality.
