What is industrial still life?

As a photographer, industrial still life has been one of my favorite subjects for several years now. I seek out isolated elements in large industrial settings such as a construction site, demolition project, abandonded equipment or building. I focus on individual elements that might be part of a large machine, idol construction tool, building materials or simply debris. In each case, I look for an aesthetic quality that highlights color, texture, light or an interesting pattern--hopefully all in one image. In some cases, these objects are familiar but captured in a unique way, but often these objects are completely mysterious, their function known only to its orginal owner or operator.
