Rats’ Aesthetics – Research

After talking to Marina about rats making art I was looking to see if rats have an aesthetic sense. Do they have any preferences that can be translated into art?

I did a facebook survey in a group of rat lover  – Rat Moms ❤️

They seem to prefer materials with textures, soft materials, dark places and hiding places. In another group, someone mentioned her rats love her blue Christmas bulbs when they light up.

I also read the article Animal Aesthetics by Wolfgang Welsch that discuss this notion in more detail:
