Photographs of the desert landscapes on the abandoned embankments of the old Ghan railway line in Central Australia retrace the routes of the settlers of the late 19th century. The images of empty landscapes are both evocations of historical desire and hope, and contemplations on the contemporary romanticism of unspectacular desert. The photographs are juxtaposed against a line cut through the forest in Vilnius, operating as a way into the histories and fictions of this particular environment. Both site specific and culturally specific, the work explores ideas around identity, landscape and fiction.
