This experimental metric film shines a light on esthetic rhythms of economic cycles related to industry from the beginning of the financial crisis till the present recovery. The picture is organized along the facts and figures of the development of the automotive, chemical and heavy industries from 2009 up till now.
The transformation of the industries is captured in individual 6 minutes long compositions that layer shots from the factories. Each layer undergoes a change in one of the image parameters (hue, contrast, brightness etc.) according to the changes of economic data of a given industry field (profits, contracts, number of employees, salaries etc.).
