Clone Fascination

Doppelgangers allude to the other sides of ourselves
Implications - Cloning has been a compelling topic in science, making consumers consider what their other halves would be like if they existed. Feeding into this fascination are photography and projects that focus on the subject of the doppelganger. These works, merging the conceptual with the scientific, propose the existence of a person’s identical self but who differs in personality and behavior, thus intriguing those viewers who have ever wondered about the existence of their own doppelgangers.
