Napoli-based creative duo Tanello Production describe their film Mirror as “a short story of similar objects.” By showing the objects side-by-side using a split-screen technique, the duo reveal how seemingly unrelated objects can bear a striking visual relationship. Tanello explain that basic shapes found in nature are “repeated with infinite declinations,” and that the objects in their film may have the same shape, but yet a “different soul.”
Despite the astute underlying concept, the comparisons are lighthearted and playful. Some of the pairings include grapes next to purple balloons, a cruise ship next to a steam iron, a manhole cover next to an Oreo, and even a goat likened to a piece of popcorn. At just 46 seconds long, but with over 26,000 views at the time of posting, Tanello have produced something special, with hopefully more to come.
