At a superficial reading, it appears to be a standard image of a party scene, but as one looks at it in more detail, the viewer becomes aware that a complex web of internal reduplications deflects attention away from that which, despite the status of photographs as imprints of the real, remain external to the image: the reality it depicts. Psychological and sociological details are thus displaces by the network of internal relationships between subject, mirror and other, which structures the image. Owens, , 73 The image shows two couples and three other people. So, the photographer is part of the image, despite not being visible. The strange duplications and reflected connections extend much further than this, but only add detail to the argument. The point is that the mirror references the analogical definition of the photograph as a mirror of reality.

Despite coming on the heels of the Brexit vote or perhaps because of—Scotland voted overwhelmingly to remain in Europe , the city and university provided a perfect location for doing graphic medicine. Andrew was one of the main organizers of the conference and created the fabulous image for the conference above. Calling attention to both form and function, we analyzed how the genre shapes and is shaped by the experience of being ill, and how we might more critically engage with Graphic Medicine by making our own readings more performative.
And how might a better understanding of the performativity of patienthood help us break down obstacles to care? Jules Valera, a comics artist from Dundee, sketched our panel presenting our papers. Graphic narratives work formally to deconstruct subjectivity in general and the experience of illness in particular. By emphasizing the subject as becoming through drawing, graphic narratives work to render the subject not as something one is, but rather as something one does, in relation to nonhuman objects and other human subjects.
In this paper, I will explore in particular the way the representation of illness and identity is staged through the doubling of mirrors, photographs, and other imaging technologies in the graphic narratives of Lynda Barry, Alison Bechdel, and Brian Fies.
Andre Gide borrowed the term from heraldry to suggest the device of self-reflection in psychological novels. Search for:.
Photography 'en Abyme'
This is an extract of an long essay on the work of photographer Nicolas Grospierre. It will appear in a book surveying his practice that will be published in They rely on drawing and occasionally model-making to act as a kind of intermediary between an idea and its realisation. One fantasy which accompanies much contemporary architecture today is that of folded or warped structures made from vast sheets of material. Folds and cuts give the enchanting illusion of immediacy and simplicity despite the complex calculations and feats of engineering which are required to achieve these effects.

We might therefore be tempted to raid it for clues to the inner lives of its sitters, or for memories of a long-since vanished Parisian milieu. However, the longer we contemplate the image, the more remote that kind of information becomes. A complex web of internal reduplications deflects attention away from that which, despite the status of photographs as imprints of the real, remains external to the image: the reality it depicts.
Sagul Like a looping fold, an imagined horizontal surface is transformed into the undulating form of the museum and then back to the original fantasy in photographic form. The mirror reflects not only the subjects depicted, but also the entire photograph itself. At a superficial reading, it appears to be a standard image of a party scene, but as one looks at it in more detail, the viewer becomes aware that a complex web of internal reduplications deflects attention away from that which, despite the status of photographs as imprints of the real, remain external to the image: Mirrors produce recursive effects of duplication. They rely on drawing and occasionally model-making to act as a kind of intermediary between an idea and its realisation. Thanks for the message.
