Strange Loop

Installation | Double 8 + Sound | 2016

A strange loop is a logical inconsistency that manifests when, by moving upward or downward through a hierarchical system, like the linear sequence of images imprinted onto a length of film, one finds oneself back where one started. Like an M.C. Escher drawing, Strange Loop is a self-referential paradox. Composed of a single length of un-split 8mm film spliced end-to-end with a half-twist to form a Möbius loop - a non-orientable geometric object with one single and continuous surface and edge – this expanded cinema installation is the physical manifestation of its namesake.
