A poorly constructed Road Roller is made based on the horse and cart design of the 18th Century. The make shift machine is dragged through a landscape, until it falls apart. The work looks at the loss of labour intensive jobs and the downturn in quality of product, ironically agricultural machines were the catalyst for the growth of technology, which lead to part of there downfall.
The Road Roller was documented taking a public footpath in the Staffordshire Moorlands, that once was a road linking to villages.
