Consumerism often boils down to an aesthetic treadmill. That's not news, I'm just putting it to words for the first time in a while.

I wonder, do we actually grow tired of what we see, when we engage with the world through technology, or have we been trained to become bored with it?

And do we have to converge on timeless design to evade the planned obsolescence of our platforms, or can we just acknowledge that there's nothing especially wrong with the skin of the beast?


I mean, there are practical considerations to UX including visual design, but are the changes we've grown accustomed to actually justified?
