The Cycle of the Mythical Panther is a three-piece series of animations. It is based on a medieval legend about a big cat with a multicolored hide. Monaghan gives this ancient myth a modern twist, covering its fur in smartphone app icons and surrounding it in the symbolism of the network age, such as bike shares and selfie sticks. Taken together, the animation series illustrates a mythical life-and-death cycle, creating a new mythology for the digital era.
