Image: aluminum shelf, 100 individual aluminum mounted photographs, 200 inches
[From UCR Sweeney] 'Fascinated by a profusion of cute animal pictures found on the web, Nina Katchadourian collected one hundred passport-sized photos and arranged them in order of cuteness for Continuum of Cute. This "interspecies beauty contest" - though highly subjective - might have consequences for an animal's ultimate survival.'
