The Silver Tower

10 minutes 16 seconds

The Silver Tower is a reconstruction, entirely from memory, of the video ‘The Black Tower’ (1987) by John Smith. Drawing on fragmented recollections, personal experience, and conversations with friends, the video tries to repeat or mimic moments, words or scenes from John Smith’s seminal video work, reflecting on memory, originality and the creative act in the process.
