It’s Hip To Be Square

So I have been looking for a picture frame that is a circle or sphere just not in the shape of a square or rectangle. While being dragged to what seemed like every store in CT that sales frames (from Goodwill to Michael’s), it made me realize that the idea of a rectangular frame had become so standard that you can’t find one in any other shape. Have our views of what is normal and accepted behavior/culture changed so much that we expect everyone and everything to fit into a neat little box? Is being an individual a thing of the past? Are we subliminally adhering to social norms? I know this post started out about picture frames but it has definitely given me a different perspective in regards to how everyday things have changed so drastically in recent years. How far will this subliminal stimuli go before we actually consciously perceive the changes?! Food for thought.
