This work by Nina Katchadourian (I have reproduced a screen grab below) invites you to make a scale from cutest to ugliest animal by shifting around these image tiles. You can see that there are opposing parties working here trying to confirm or undermine mainstream notions of cute.
Which animal do you most identify with? Would you include this animal in your digital self portrait (my project 2)?
