HEAVY PETTING

Or: another thing WWW can reveal to make you feel less special.

This video from Paris-Berlin art collective Neozoon is a work impossible before the internet, not just technologically. Mined deep and wide from Youtube, it makes you wonder–what was the first pet video? How and when did people learn the correct way to articulate human-animal love? While these owners most likely have nothing but the best intentions for their pets on show, their coos sound disingenuous and dehumanized in chorus. Ultimately, the work questions both the power and utility of affected affect and the Internet’s influence as emotional taste-maker.

The video above is an excerpt from the original 30-track film MY BBY 8L3W.
