is by Sasha Aleksandrov and shows the industrial process in the correct sequential order of technological operations in the manufacture of sheet steel at the Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Combine in Moscow, Russia.
This delightfully constructed media art piece show a large scale industrial complex as a sprawling megalomania of disrupting architecture. Nevertheless this well made video is combined with the eloquent electronic music track, Totem by Klaus Schulze, which helps create a compelling experience.
Sasha believes he has produced a serious movie with a deep transcendental soderazhanie, alas that word remains meaningless to us but its probably the artist exercising his poetic justice ?
