enclosure for an electrical substation

An enclosure for an electrical substation and therefore something of an oxymoron: A huge station for transforming 230,000 kv from 150 foot tall overhead transmission lines can’t be contained. This massive node is a visible part of the grid system that we rely upon completely and so far, anyway, can’t live without. Why not explore the images offered by the station technologies? The custom screen pattern creates views into the station that seem alternately closed, partially open and fully open. Light flickers with motion and ominous insulators, buses and transformers come in and out of focus.
