Silver Loop is a 16mm film installation that highlights the material wealth of analog image making. Throughout the 20th century silver has been instrumental to the understanding of our world because of its quality to be light sensitive when combined with other chemicals, allowing a mechanical depiction. The looped film presents the closed narrative of a 1000 troy-ounce silver bar being turned into photographic film, to the silver being recovered from the photographic film back to a 1000 troy-ounce bar. The film asks its audience to consider the ecological and economical past of images.
