Instagram's New Logo Provokes an Existential Crisis

The photo sharing app Instagram rolled out its new logo this week. So if you look for Instagram on your phone, this is the symbol that you're searching for.

Matt Haughey noticed that it looks a lot like the horrified subject in Edvard Munch's painting The Scream. Munch composed that famous image after this moment of inspiration:

I was walking along the road with two friends
The Sun was setting – the Sky turned blood-red.
And I felt a wave of Sadness – I paused
tired to Death – Above the blue-black
Fjord and City Blood and Flaming tongues hovered
My friends walked on – I stayed
behind – quaking with Angst – I
felt the great Scream in Nature
So I challenge the Mona Lisa and Whistler’s Mother

I can't think of a better metaphor for using Instagram that this experience.
