These are my ideas:

1. A day in the life of a seaboard cat
Museum could choose some (3 or 4) seaboard cats to wear a positioning
device. Keeping in mind that these cats will be at the middle of the sea
most of the time or under the deck of the boat, positioning technology could
be based on RFID, wifi or bluetooth.
Museum visitors could keep track of the paths cats have done around the boat
during the day, or consult a historic of each cat paths, to check if some
habits can be found.
This visual information about paths could also be associated to statistics
like, for instance: how many times the cat has been sleeping, or eating,
2. Moving around like a cat
This idea is based on an image recognition device. The goal is that visitors
of the museum can experience the world from the point of view of a cat… that
is, forgetting their human behaviors and emotions for a while.
Visitors should move around the museum with an image recognition device.
Inside the museum, there would be randomly placed items that usually don’t
concern humans, but are important for cats in some sense. For example, if an
item is delightful or is thrilling, the device would warn the visitor about
it, and explain why cats feel attracted or repel it.
Have a nice weekend,
