They’re calling it “The Dress That Broke The Internet.”
I’m talking of course about that blue and black dress . . . or is it gold and white . . . wait, hold on, it’s blue and . . . nope, white. Damn it!
You know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s the dress that caused knock-down, drag-outs at the water cooler late last week because some people adamantly saw it black and blue and others saw it gold and white.
There are all sorts of super-sciency reasons why people see the dress as different colors, as written about in this New York Times article (and now can we pause for a moment to reflect on the fact that the New York Times covered this crazy story?).
But for me, the matter was quite simple.
People see things differently. And that goes for cheap dresses on Tumblr, and it most certainly goes for art, and yep, theater.
