Gisele two times, November 2013
These images reminded me of the passage I wrote that inspired this blog here:
"There is in imitation an affirmation of the other, a love of the other, a love of the neighbor and a denial of the self and singularity. The larger idea of doubles, assimilation, subcultural formation...we have reached the excess with imitation. Everything can be duplicated and imitated. Whatever it is that we have culturally considered with virtual reality, the simulacra, the mirror image, the other... is not so much one another, or even the culture industry but we are imitating indeterminate images and those images are an imitation of real life itself - that is the rupture to imitation."
