Dialogue II: Lark of the Border

LARK OF THE BORDER

(In memory of artist filmmaker Stuart Croft 1970-2015)

THE CALIFORNIAN DESERT. TRACING PEOPLE. A ROLL OF KODACHROME SUPER 8.

A MEMORY VISUALLY ERASED OF A FACTORY AND THE PEOPLE WHO WORKED THERE. THE BORDERS AND LINE DRAWINGS BECOME INTERRUPTIONS  BETWEEN PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT. THE CULTURAL IMAGINATION OF THE DESERT AND THE CITY, ICONS OF A COUNTRY’S MYTHS SLIP. THE PEOPLE WHO ONCE LIVED AND WORKED ARE AN ENIGMA: AS ENIGMATIC AS THE MATERIAL LEGACY THAT IN TIME IS ABSORBED BY THE LAND.
