Two identical suitcases hold up a mirror that is reflective on both sides. In double/double a conundrum is proposed: it is clear that the surface separating the two suitcases is reflective, yet the repetition of suitcases destabilizes this certainty by obscuring the boundary between the reflective and the transparent. This doubling of both real and reflected objects plays with our desire to see, to remember, and to think we know what we see from what we have remembered.
