cute asia

Sejoon Kim and Hyunjee Jung feel fascinated by their own Asian culture and its tendency towards cuteness; manga characters with big eyes, preference for pink and the love for Dutch figure Miffy. They explore this phenomenon in their project ‘CUTE Anthropomorphism and Thingification’. Imitation shows the important expressive quality in a ‘cute’ world. In this project they play with the natural cuteness in living creatures and engineered cuteness in inanimate objects. Shown here are Skirt-up girl, Skirt-up object and Giraffe object.
