In the Netherlands, there is a rolling tobacco called Drum.

This word is a homonym* of the word “droom” which means dream in this language.

This homonymy is an invitation for the setting in motion of the unconscious on another path, that of the imaginary principle of homonymy by Freud and Lacan).

This is represented by the model, posing during the day, to become in favor of the night as a phantasmatic apparition.

The stage is placed in an office, on the working table are ancient books, symbols of hidden and deep memory.

The mirror in which it reflects itself allows its double to go beyond the frame.

The mirror has a magical aspect. It is in a mirror of water that Narcissus contemplated himself. It’s in a mirror of water that Narcissus contemplated himself and fell in love.

It is also a powerful game for children, forming what the psychoanalyst Lacan named “The Mirror Stage” which begins the definition of self-image.

For artists, the mirror is a tool. The painter discovers his work in reverse, ensuring a vision of things and apparent reality that the asleep eye did not see.

The dancer controls her work through a mirror in the dance hall.

Thus, the mirror has a character related to the sacred in Genesis. It is a deadly character for narcissistic engulfment and a character for definition and perfection in the arts.
