platform0C9A3663

There is of course, a grandeur and elegance to the industrial landscape, an elegance made all the more lovely in its total indifference and strangeness. In this way “platform0C9A3663” confesses to an affection and fascination with industry and organization. The absurdity of the biosphere annihilating technologies unleashed by industry is mirrored in the absurdity of this painting, which makes life a tiny blip on a list of car parts.
