I often feel held at a distance when viewing objects in museums. I want to step into a painting and experience a space or the company of an interesting person, but can only stand transfixed, trying to get inside by looking and imagining.

The Eucla Museum, in the middle of the Nullarbor Desert, is a single room in the roadhouse motel, between rooms 30 and 31. As I passed late one night, there was a glow from one light. I checked the door to find it open. The Eucla Museum is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
