Droste effect packaging.

Like standing between two mirrors, or Stephen Colbert’s painting, some commercial packaging shows the package in the art for the package. You might remember Land O’ Lakes or Cracker Jack as examples.

This is called the “Droste effect,” named for a package from 1904. Mathematically, these are pictures of infinity. Or something like that.

See if you can find some when you go grocery shopping! For God’s sake, something needs to make grocery shopping more interesting.
