Audio/sound design and video projection by Alexander Boyes
Castings, graphite, found objects, photographs by Martha Glowacki
Located in the former bedroom of Charles Allis, first president of the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company, the Dream of Charles Allis recalls the hum of industrial production that may have echoed through his mind as he drifted off to sleep, transposed to present day where nature has begun to reclaim the cavernous factory spaces that 100 years ago were bustling with human activity.
Multichannel soundscape created from recordings captured in the former Pabst brewery bottling plant in downtown Milwaukee in 2011.
Projection through factory glass panels created with video footage courtesy of WC Tank.

Shot over two days in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA with a Canon T1i and Magic Lantern firmware. Basically Justin and I drank a bunch of coffee at Alterra and brainstormed the basic plot, mapping out locations based on sections of the song, then spent the next two days shooting various adventures. Most clips were left as shot, with a few time adjustments and minimal color correction.
