Art and Industry

We all know about the influence that industrialisation and mechanisation had on visual art in the twentieth century, (the Futurists, Leger etc) but imagine if it went the other way.  Here are some cracking examples of industrial installations looking a lot like gallery pieces.  Or "a cyberman's tanning salon", as my son reckons for the top one.

From 'Factory Installation Work' by A.J. Coker.  Published by Newnes, 1945.
