Four men work secluded from the world; in an oil field in a desert in Texas, in a vessel travelling the ocean, in a strange anechoic chamber, and in a large concrete-reinforced pit. These men provide the basis for our daily lives. The objects that we take for granted every day begin and end their journey from unsettling industrial or scientific places. These men are monks, in temples of steel and concrete, carrying out their everyday rituals with phantoms in silence and solitude.
