Open Cut

This project was born out of a need to make sense of the archive – to see more clearly. Yallourn is a 20th century story. A tribute to modernism and model living. A time capsule of optimism. The rise and rise of consumerism. The rise and fall of a community.


“I don’t have a home town, I have an archive. If I want to visit my place of birth, I watch a movie.” – Phil Burke
