Print: Daydream Mine Rd
"Daydream Mine Rd" was captured during a design research trip to Broken Hill in outback NSW during the winter of 2015. Work during this research trip centred around projects utilising found typography, looking at the role communication design can play in urban renewal, and screenprinting and projection workshops at the Broken Hill Film Studio.
Silverton is a small village with a population of 50 people, located 25km west of Broken Hill. The only road connecting the two place is Silverton Rd, cutting through the outback landscape in long, straight sections. Occasionally dry creek beds, rocky outcrops and low, rollings hills add some visual interest to the surrounds, Daydream Mine Rd the jewel in the crown as it snakes north off Silverton Rd; firstly between, then over crests before you arrive at your destination some twelve kilometres later: the historic Daydream Mine.
