Video 1986


In the words, new and old technologies collide as a traditional, manually-operated steel forge in the North of England is captured and manipulated by digital video technology. Utilising images from the process of beating and moulding steel into shape, The Works in its virtuoso pacing and keying of image and sampled sound foregrounds the danger, drudgery and sheer intensity of conditions faced daily by the workers in the steel industry.
