Samantha Moore has penned this piece about Loop for animationstudies 2.0:
The project Silent Signal, initiated by Animate Projects, funded by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award and working with animators and scientists, is working on a number of collaborative projects using animation to explore scientific enquiry. I have been working on research and development for a film project called Loop with Dr Serge Mostowy and colleagues in his lab at Imperial College London, who primarily use zebrafish models for their work in microbiology. The zebrafish is a useful model for working with because the natural translucency of its larvae enables non-invasive imaging of individual cells and microbe-phagocyte interactions at high resolution. The use of the zebrafish, therefore, is all about visibility and evidencing the processes involved.
