Circling was inspired by the old steam engines that used to drive the cotton mills, now residing in the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. I was fascinated by the cross-rhythms of all the cogs, pistons and gears, endlessly moving back and forth at an array of different speeds, all connected and dependent on one another. There’s something melancholic about these beautiful, eccentric constructions still clanking away, yet confined to a museum, the world having moved on: in the age of the microchip machines do not clank.
