Summary, etc.:
Looks at duplication within works of art via mirrors, naturally reflective surfaces, and shadows and then at stylized repetition, whether it be through patterns integral to a work or through patterns that in themselves constitute the work. More esoteric aspects, such as implied and distorted reflections, the otherness of reflected images, the weightiness of shadows, the fear-inducing quality of doubled images, and repeating as a means of progressing, are also addressed.
