I can't tell you how many times a week I ask myself why I'm not in London.
There was this article I read years ago about auratic objects in museum displays - those objects whose resonance is something that is created by their perceived historical significance more than their physicality, so that the primary significance is culturally constructed rather than inherent to the object itself. I think are a good example of that.
I'll try to dig up the resonance article if anyone's interested.
