“Visceral Petting Zoo” is a participatory sound performance where a menagerie of cute but creepy creatures come to life. The performance demonstrates the ambiguous relationship between affection and revulsion through the concept of “cute aggression” — a cognitive phenomenon that describes the strong urge to bite, squeeze or otherwise harm particularly cute beings. The audience is also invited to interact with the critters, creating an engaging but perhaps uneasy experience that exposes the subversive power of cuteness.
Eevi Rutanen (b. 1992, Finland) is an artist, creative technologist and educator. Merging visual arts with coding and electronics, Eevi creates interactive experiences that often combine hard science and technology with soft materials and ideas.
