The King and his men stole the Queen from her bed, and bound her in her bones. The sea be ours, and by the powers; where we will, we’ll roam. Yo ho, all hands, hoist the colours high. Heave-ho, thieves and beggars, never shall we die. Yo ho, haul together, hoist the colours high. Heave-ho, thieves and beggars, never shall we die.

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.

Maybe love was superstition, a prayer we said to keep the truth of loneliness at bay. I tilted my head back. The stars looked like they were close together, when really they were millions of miles apart. In the end, maybe love just meant longing for something impossibly bright and forever out of reach.
