Two banner marches were undertaken for 22.06.1911/30.10.2004. These marches took place in Kellerberrin, a small town in the West Australian wheat-belt, on 30 October 2004. The first march took place at dawn, the second at dusk. The dusk march was followed by a dinner for all those who had participated in the marches.
The site-specific work 22.06.1911/30.10.2004: Documents after Marching Season configured traces from thee two banner marches into Kellerberrins disused old cinema, the Regent Theatre. Two video projections and slide projection filled the back wall of the old theatre hall. The cinemas old projection room displayed a pencil wall text, a catalogue of the creation of national boundaries since 1901 displayed on 22 A4 sheets, and the dissembled frames from the banner marches.
