The retro-futuristic machine Loop is a cross between a music box, a zoetrope and a railway handcar, that creates animated fairy-tales. Through the combined efforts of members of the public working the hand lever, the image cylinder lights up and creates the illusion of motion in the drawings. The black and white images, tinted through a strobe effect, recall the earliest movies. The speed at which the images fly by, the frequency at which the light flickers and the rhythm of the audio composition are directly related to the pace set by the participants, who can be of any age.
