The Cute Clinic
Through my studies, I have investigated how we, as a society, interact with ‘cuteness’ and the effect it has on us. I have examined the manipulative effect cuteness has, specifically the intense feelings that are generated when looking at something cute. Instinctively, our reactions are to take care of and nurture things that we find cute, particularly young children.
I have applied the characteristics of cuteness to my illustrations to investigate if they trigger the same emotional response, while also having others investigate their own personal relationships with cuteness.
