Twin Strangers

Two eerily similar faces stare out from my computer screen as I enter my information. The alluring sentence โ€œTwin Strangers: Find your lookalike from anywhere in the worldโ€ glares out in large letters at the top of the page. The web site was created earlier this year for people around the world to find their doppelgangers. As I create my username and enter my face, eyebrow, eye, nose and lip shape, I wonder about the origin of this strange phenomenon of seeking connection through physical similarity.
