As the world moves away from the Industrial Age and deeper into the Information Age, the relics of our former industries can been seen aging and abandoned. Often, older industrial buildings and sites are so polluted with the materials, once used or made there, that the locations can’t be used for much else. Since they can’t be used, they simply sit and gather the layers of time that make them fascinating until they are demolished, repossessed, or completely forgotten about. These abandoned factories, have served their useful lives and now stand silent. I want to explore all the different aspects of these buildings, such as aesthetic form and architecture.
I want to explore the ways that human beings can use the factory roof as an aesthetic form and a way of expression, using color, movement and objects to describe it.
For this first approach I invite five different artists and give them different areas of the rooftop each. I give them the freedom to create a unique performance inspired by my concept.
This peace was a collaboration work between me and Roberto Crippa.
Roberto Crippa is a Sound Artist, Composer and Improvisation based in London, whose work includes live electronic music and installations investigating the responses of physical bodies to architectural acoustics. His music combines realtime performance on custom analogue oscillators and effect pedals with acoustic sound sources such as zithers, bells and various percussion instruments.
