Equipment and loading mechanisms of a port area wander in constant motion rhythmically and purposefully along the quay. ISO containers in different colours are lifted and re-placed elsewhere, in between: moments of motionlessness and stagnation. Defeated by the machines in terms of size, some dock workers wearing bright orange safety jackets can be spotted in the middle of the loading and container bridges. During the approaching night, the processes around the port area appear in a different light, only shadows and silhouettes of the continuous machine processes remain. Monoscape shows fragments, shapes and movements of an industrial cycle. Through the calm and documentary images, the machinary processes gain a repetitive and ubiquitous dimension. Removed from their purpose-determined context, they seem like anonymous idle objects in an engineered landscape.
