Things You (Think) You Can Tell Just By Looking At Them.

"He looks quite nice." "He looks angry." "She'd make a good wife." The stories we build around flashes of the faces of others, and maybe a few articles of their clothing or their hairstyle, are fascinating autobiographies actually. This video piece by James Price reminded me again why how we get dressed intrigues me so much. When you choose a hairstyle, when you choose a shirt, you are starting a conversation and everyone who sees you is finishing it. What are you saying? What are they saying about you?

I wonder what it was like to see this video as a participant.
