 __Apex__ was commissioned by [[http://​www.tintypegallery.com/​exhibitions/​past/​essex-road/​|Tintype Gallery]] as one of eight silent films responding to the Essex Road, on which the gallery is also located. __Apex__ shows a photographic image in development;​ in a dark-room a single 35mm negative is enlarged and printed. The image is the culmination of a number of 35mm stills displayed across a single plane. It is a kind of hieroglyph, or the pinnacle of a pyramid, from which the Essex Road might be read. The work looks to motifs found within the 1930s Egyptian revival architecture of the Carlton Cinema, and draws in other sites such as a funeral directors’ ‘Embalming’ window, and a dispensing-pharmacy that offers photographic film-processing services. ​ __Apex__ was commissioned by [[http://​www.tintypegallery.com/​exhibitions/​past/​essex-road/​|Tintype Gallery]] as one of eight silent films responding to the Essex Road, on which the gallery is also located. __Apex__ shows a photographic image in development;​ in a dark-room a single 35mm negative is enlarged and printed.
