2. The Mirror Effect

Okay, first, a moment of appreciation for A., how fierce Margot Robbie looks and B., how deliriously happy Ryan Gosling looks. Now that that’s done, let me direct your attention to the people in the background of the photo. Observe the way they are blatantly filming the movie stars in front of them, absorbed by how Gosling and Robbie look in the tiny, grainy camera app on their iPhones instead of live and in technicolor directly in front of their eyeballs. Does that remind you of anyone? Yourself, maybe? Looking at these photos on your tiny phone screen? This photo is a reflection of us. Looking at it is like when you take a video of yourself in the mirror and inside the screen is a thousand tinier reflections. It’s so meta, I have to look away.
