Duplication is nothing new in art, but digital technologies make it easier than ever to implement. In Double Vision Video, you'll see classic art such as The Arnolfini Marriage by Jan van Eyck with its use of a mirror and analyze the motif of repeat imagery in art. The video goes on to examine surfaces like water that naturally reflect.
This informative video discusses more than literal mirror images. For example, the video devotes time to exploring shadows and how their heaviness can induce uncomfortable feelings in viewers. Learn how viewers may feel fear at doubled images and how artists can depict progress through repeating images. Repeated patterns, distorted reflections and implied repetition are also discussed in this 27-minute video.
