Housed in what was once the world's largest woollen mill, Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills charts the industrial history of the city of Leeds in Yorkshire. From manufacturing textiles and clothing to printing, engineering and locomotives, the museum’s collections document the industries that made the city world famous.

Whilst recording the sound of the corn mill at Armley Mills, artist David Bridges began to think about what lies behind the materiality of the mill and the machinery that fills its spaces. As a beneficiary of New Expressions’ New Opportunities Awards (NOAs), Bridges will create filmic sculpture reflecting upon the people who inhabited the mill space over the centuries.
