Things That Look Like Other Things RSS

Background: "That contrast is embedded in things that look like other things, and its curious appeal suggests something about one of the great conundrums of consumer behavior, or possibly even of human psychology: our attraction to the novel and our seemingly contradictory attraction to the familiar."

This project brought to you by Consumed/Rob Walker.

"I can see the appeal, but the whole concept is rather thin."
