3D More Than Meets the Eye: Visual Boundaries and Variety-Seeking Behavior

The authors argue that, beyond their aesthetic role, visual boundaries can strengthen or weaken variety-seeking behavior but the impact depends on consumer cognitive load. In addition, information richness serves as a moderator of the proposed visual boundary effect.
