Hannibal + symmetry
Symmetry refers to visual harmony of balance and proportion, and it represents order and stability. Historically, it was associated with the workings of the divine: Aristotle ascribed mathematical symmetry to the heavenly bodies as manifestations of the natural order and perfection of the universe.
Symmetry is visually appealing, yet also suggests a sterile rigidity and monotony. In cinematography, the coherence to absolute lines detracts from the humanity of the characters it portrays, positioning them as automatons in a dance rather than freely acting individuals. The viewer is positioned in a god’s eye view of the world, making us complicit in the dehumanisation of the subjects.
