Every iota of modern times was energised in this hall at micro level. Blades spun at an incomprehensible rate as superheated steam from the boilers, silent but so forceful as to be able to cut a man in half by air pressure and temperature alone, passed around dozens of miles of pipework running under and over the surroundings. The show of transforming thermal energy, to kinetic, to electrical, was raucous, aggressive and volatile in its sensory character for an onlooking engineer in the hall when each turbine was at full rotation. Now though, a visitor can hear a pin drop. This serenity goes far to provide a clear head for the visitor, whose heart rate will now be slowing, to reflect on the shapes and sizes of the specimens themselves, as well as other varying features around the space.

Maniac, Noent.re
