ust look at this cuteness. LOOK AT IT, I SAY!! Don’t try to deny its overpowering adorability. Let it wash over you.
So, according to the folks at iHeartBerlin.de, this picture comes from a series of images they created for a photo competition, the rest of which you can find by starting here. The competition was put on by Mobile Sessions (which seems to be organized by Sony Ericsson).
You know, taking this picture along with that video for Minilogue‘s “Animals” track (see video below) and the graphic design for the Masomenos record label (also see below), I’m thinking that I could write a whole article on minimal techno and cuteness. Also, someone needs to write an article on pictures of the exterior of Berghain (since pictures of the interior are forbidden during party hours); I bet that there are some interesting patterns to those photos…
So, a friend’s comment on Facebook just made me realize: BEARS LOVE BERGHAIN. If you’ve been there, you know what I mean.
Write that article! Schnell!
As you might imagine, I’m totally going to borrow from writing on Japanese SUPERFLAT aesthetics an kawaii culture. Any references?
Not much, sorry. The best was this chapter for Roger’s ludomusicology class:
Surman, David. “Pokémon 151: Complicating kawaii.” In Gaming Cultures and Place in Asia-Pacific, edited by Larissa Hjorth and Dean Chan, 158–178. Routledge, 2009.
