Fork Truck Monologue

While moving through Aker’s Shipyard one might be under the impression that the trucks that drive around are just man driven machines. But what if we see them as talking and listening creatures. How would the shipyard sound for them? And what are they talking about in this endless growling engine monologue?

We plugged into a fork truck by giving it ears on either side of the driver’s cabin and listened in for an hour.
