Actual photos taken at the former industrial buildings of textile company DMC are combined with archival images of former workers from same place, who are machine-embroidered here and replaced by machines in reality. Taken out of the working context, they seem to linger around in their - now abandoned – factory.  Left without a purpose, both building and workers.
