The Subjective Analysis of (the Production of) the Contemporary Manmade Cute is an ongoing research project that aims to investigate the concepts of the manmade Cute (which we commonly associate with the sweet, fluffy, tame, formally simple and usually small), as a multi-layered aesthetic and an emotionally powerful sensibility. With reference to important literary works such as The Power of Cute by Simon May and Our Aesthetic Categories by Sianne Ngai, combined with my own observation towards cultural ‘artefacts’ and artworks, this is an exploration to understand and critique the applications and cultural significance of Cute through analytical writing and reflective making.
