 I acknowledge and pay my respects to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation and the Dharug peoples, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which I was raised and continue to work. I pay my respect to elders past, present and emerging.

Gill Was Here is a large public artwork installed at the Chengdu Academy of Fine Arts in China in 2017. This work experimented with the boundaries of language and dialogue, whilst responding to the architecture of the space.
This was achieved through three ten metre banners suspended off a main university building, which combined institutional features with local and historical graffiti slang. It discreetly (using phonetic combinatons of the mandarin language to produce audible english sentences) broadcasted the phrases, “Gill Was Here”, “Crack is Wack” and “Your Mum Looks Good Today” in large white block letters against a crimson red background.
