Double Image


Double image. This term is traditionally used to describe the result of exposing film twice by superimposing two events that have taken place at different times. Here, the layering and superposition is the result of a photographic slide on a loop of dia positive film.

The choice of using analogue film betrays Troika’s interest in the historical evolution of image-making techniques and is indicative of both, their interest in reality and representation, and of an interest to work with a medium that has a physical bearing in the real world.

In the same fashion as traditional DIA slides are produced, the colour gradient on the film was achieved by the three-color principle through exposing the photographic emulsion of the transparent film to red, green and blue coloured light to bring out an image.
