The idea for this one started out more comic than it turned out to be. I actually wanted to have a little kitten sitting at the from of the screen looking at the viewer knowing only peace and no danger. I soon figured out that I had to let the chick and the cat interact to make this piece work out. I guess there are not other back story to this than I simply enjoy making pieces like this. I also wanted to experiment a little with a light sources directed straight down from the top og the screen, lighting up dust particles in the air.
