The lower tidal River Thames landscape is dominated by large industrial estates. From the river – my vantage point - the networked structures can be seen in their entirety, striking in their scale, dominance, and awkward yet intriguing designs.
I interpret these structures as complex anthropomorphic organisms, systems of independent parts that dance to their own rhythms. Windowless towers that seem defiant; angled mechanical arms somehow adolescent; conical silos lined up like soldiers on parade.
With lapping waves as visible as a wind that pushes weighty, threatening clouds, this is industry, alive and at work as I sail downstream.
