I don’t know what you think of when you hear the word simulacrum, but I had some ideas (would love to hear yours in the comments). I was surprised to learn that it’s an image or representation of something; a slight, unreal, or vague semblance of something; superficial likeness. Why would you want to know this word? You might need to discuss Greek statuary. Or simulated environments in films such as The Truman Show. Or maybe you’re looking to buy a toaster. Wait, what? That’s right; a toaster. Like the ones available from Burnt Impressions. They started following me on twitter, so I took a look. You really have to see it for yourself, so please take a look. And do let me know if you knew simulacrum before reading this post.
