Still life


Salts Mill's roof space has apparently hardly been touched since the textile works closed.  The other public spaces have been cleaned up and painted, whilst still retaining many features of their industrial past.  But the roof space, which is rarely open to the public except for a few exhibitions, remains full of the ghosts of the past.  I liked the arrangement of colours and shapes here.... but it all poses as many questions as answers, I feel.

  3. Very nice. I assume the colors indicate purpose, and the red bit is perhaps part of a fire alarm?

  5. What a capture . . . you know I could well imagine this removed from it's present location, reassembled in somewhere like the Tate Modern, and called an "instalation" . . .
