The video installation CROSS METROPOLIS MACHINE maps the movements of a perfomer responding to industrial electronic music and contemplates on the body as recording and relating to the diverse forces that act upon it. In response to CLOSE TO CONCRETE (2011) also CROSS METROPOLIS MACHINE (2012) reflects on the interaction and on the mutual conditioning of space (as in architecture as well as in urban concepts) and body. For CROSS METROPOLIS MACHINE Pola developed in collaboration with Orson Sieverding a track where the sounds of the city are echoing in the waves that sculpt the performers movements and relate it to early electronic music and its appropriation of the sound of the assembly line.
