Cute London

Yesterday we had a little family outing and lunch. We went to visit the Cute Exhibition at Somerset House.

In short it was equal parts overwhelming and underwhelming.

Upon entering the queue to have your ticket scanned you see a row of AI generated cats. AI generated images do not belong in the same class as human generated art. But that's a topic for someone else to blog on.

I could go through the rest of the exhibit room by room but I honestly don't feel like reliving it. There were a couple rooms that were interesting (some Manga and Kawaii displays, the history of Hello Kitty), but it soon got into the weird and overwhelming. Some rooms felt like they were just trying way to hard to push boundaries and explore the edges what is considered cute. It didn't work for me. It felt forced and disjointed.

Normally I would add some pictures but honestly I didn't even think to take any pictures. I didn't see anything that I was like, yeah I want to remember that. So no pictures from me.

I'm sure there are people who loved it and for whom it was just their thing. I'm not that audience. I'm guessing that most people aren't that audience.

I sum it up with the wise words of Randy Jackson, "That's gonna be a No from me dawg."
