Real vs fake

Everyone knows what you see on billboards and magazine covers are photoshopped, enhanced to appeal to the average consumer.

Stretch marks, blemishes, wrinkles are all airbrushed out to give out this image of perfection. Models are thinner and taller than they appear, lips are glossier than the real thing.

And then I realized, phones and notebooks are also given the same treatment. In fact, the notebooks and phones you see in print and web ads are actually 3D renderings of the actual product. What next? 3d models to replace real ones?

What becomes of us when we prefer the online, enhanced version instead of the real thing?

Think about it.
