Low energy vibrates through these destroyed aids of daily life as if under permanent electric shock, provoking a tactile bodily experience. Their junky, lousy appearance clashes with a narrative of an ever more accelerated, optimized mobility. Demanding a different temporality, the sweaty act of beating, bending and forging of metal inscribed in the objects, leaves space for a rethinking of our relationships to individual labour and production in times of heavily automated construction industies.
