The art of service now runs from this old industrial building. Everything inside is now made in China.

Hanging planter I made from old stuff I found around a telco Central Office. Among other trash-to-treasure parts on it, it includes a mag tape fringe strung from part of an old terminal block.

"Art" from industrial junk = Industrial Arts? Detail photo showing a few step-by-step relays, specialized wire, and some small tools worked in.

All in all, parts on this thing represent telco technologies dating from WWI through the first electronic and later digital switches, as well as early data and fiber optic transmission equipment. Coworkers and I have added bits to it too since these photos were taken a couple years ago, and the philodendron now reaches the mag tape ring at the top.

This is a photo of one of the greatest engineering feats in Swedish/Danish history: The Oresunds Bridge (pops). As seen from inside a moving train, @ aprox half way, looking out over a family of windmills. I commute this bridge every day and think that it, and the windmills, are amongst the most beautiful of industrial structures that I have ever seen. *sniff*
