A hungry Andean cat travels to the coast to fish, unaware that he has some special followers.  
The project recreates a short micro puppet theater for children where the scenography is animated by the spectator's biometric data. While seeing the show inside a box through a peeping hole, the kid activates sensors that take the data to move clouds, waves, and more.  
Inspired by the Lambe Lambe puppetry, Track-track: Let’s Follow the Cat! aims to explore children’s new digital environment and the concerns that biometric data and the notion of privacy implies. This interactive puppet show investigates how children recognize themselves as a data source and how they perceive their own digital data as a resource.
