‘Cuteness Tool for Dachshunds’ is a provocative piece questioning whether the way we apply cuteness is right and whether cuteness is always positive. I made a self plastic surgery tool for dachshund which stretch the dachshunds longer. This project is based on the designer dog industry in which a cute dog is defined and engineered by genetics instead of nature. This can be seen as ‘artificial cuteness’, because humans have bred dogs to become ‘more cute’. Their changed shape causes illness in the dogs which is the negative aspect behind a dog’s cute appearance. Like in this example, cuteness can often disguise negative circumstances and my work focuses on its hidden secrets.
