Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following: molds, casts, and replicas; afterimages, mirror images, twinning/tripling, and mise en abîme; serial formats and presentations; Janus or Gemini figures, uncanny doubles, doppelgängers, and evil twins; the replication or reappearance of architectural elements and structures; mimicry and mimesis; issues of reproduction in photography, print culture, media, and mass production; copying and emulation in practice and pedagogy; work that problematizes, resists, or elides duplication or multiplication; appropriation, plagiarism, and copyright issues; the re-presentation of works or performances; relationships between facsimiles and originals; and dialogues between final products and sketches or models.
