Metal Storm is about the intersection of urban living clashing with the bush. The expended machine age is dumped on the urban fringe where the two meet and chaos is the outcome or some would say urban hell. Car parts, metal machinery, the industrial revolution found in the bush, dumped or burnt is now reinvented into machine art. All components are found or scavenged, nothing is new. Steel products that were made for car parts or machinery are now just lying in the bush. With these works James reinstates some of the value into the workmanship that went into these creations.
