The Line of Lode and Death of Charlie Day

Angelica Mesiti
2008

Inspired by the grandeur of its physical landscape and the unique place it occupies in our cultural consciousness, this video work focuses on social groups both animal and human that inhabit an Australian outback town. The Line of Lode and Death of Charlie Day is a meditation on the connections that link them to their landscapes and therefore each other. Streams of pre nocturnal images form independent scenes that interrelate without being bound by narrative; Suburban kids riding bikes in the sunset shadows, a flock of pigeons released for their evening flight,the dusty twilight interiors of an out of business hotel, a goat enjoying the cool air of dusk.
