3. Silver Loop

2014




16mm Black & White Film, Steel Pulleys, Projector 


           Silver Loop looks to highlight the material wealth of analog image making. Throughout the 19th & 20th century silver has been instrumental to the understanding of our world because of its quality to be sensitive to light when combined with other chemicals, thus allowing a mechanical
depiction to be produced.

Shot between March & April 2014 the looped film presents the closed narrative of a 1000 troy-ounce silver bar being processed into photographic film, to silver being recovered from photographic film and returned to a 1000 troy-ounce bar.
