Original sound work in response to FCA's Triple Harvest callout by London-based artist, collaborator and researcher Anja Borowicz.





The fourth instalment of our podcast is an original sound work in response to our Triple Harvest callout by London-based artist, collaborator and researcher Anja Borowicz.

Before transitioning to art, Anja studied industrial engineering – an experience which instilled an enduring affinity for industrial landscapes, diagrammatic instructions and thinking across taxonomies. This made her response to Corby steel industry heritage films particularly insightful.

Anja recently collaborated with a neuroscientist to stage GestureLabs, where the public responded to archives of recorded body labour while their movements were recorded in a purpose built booth. This project palpably informed her approach to the documentary footage of steel workers. Just as she has captured poetry in the repetitive movements of human bodies at work, her piece extracted : crashed : smelted finds the music and humanity in the sounds of an industry populated by large metal monsters.
