Creator Commentary:

The subject of this photo is my cat of about twelve years, Maui. To me, she embodies physical uncertainty because she moves quickly and spontaneously. I can never be quite sure of the physical response I’ll get from her in the moment- sometimes my feet moving under my blanket are mere annoyances disturbing her peaceful slumber, while other times they are exciting creatures that must be attacked and bitten. In a different sense, watching my cat grow up shows me the true uncertainty of the physique. As a kitten, she was clumsy and weak, but playful. Then, she became deft, quick, and a little bit of a troublemaker. Now, as she grows older, she has slowed her pace and is once again a little clumsy- however, she still retains certain swiftness in her actions.
