Even if you've seen Antarctica in person, you haven't experienced the icy tundra that Alex Cornell has created. It's the same landscape, but the San Francisco-based filmmaker has mirrored the scenes over each other in his "Upon Reflection" video to create a parallel universe that's only translated in the land formations. All of the people and animals stepping through the frame are left alone, making it seem like the reflected landscape is just a perfectly formed product of nature.
