The workflow at a container terminal becomes a mesmerising mechanical ballet

At an unidentified container terminal, giant cargo containers are lifted and lowered by mechanical arms, and moved between land and sea on extra-wide truck beds. Without a single human in sight, the machines seem to move of their own volition, carrying out the most complex tasks with complete precision. Depicting a human-created world devoid of humanity, Terminal is a poetic observation of the oft-forgotten transport infrastructure at the heart of our global economy.
