Who knew there was such a mainstream market for artfully arranged pictures of other people’s stuff?
Points of Interest:
There is a new field of neuroaesthetics, which investigates the neural basis for aesthetic experience
There’s a German word: Sehnsucht, which translates as
“addictive yearning.” This is, I think, what these sites evoke: the feeling of being addicted to longing for something; specifically being addicted to the feeling that something is missing or incomplete.
