Leaving Your Mark on Country reveals different aspects of Canberra as visitors stand quietly in the space. Graffiti artist Libby Harward was inspired by her time in Canberra with the host nation people:

‘This artwork is a visual communication of First Peoples’ connection to country, to each other and all living things. It’s a connection that asks you to slow down and become consciously aware of your present. Experience more deeply the country where you stand and how you affect it.

‘You will witness the connection between you, the grass seeds, caves, scar trees, pregnant mountains, ochre, rivers, meeting places, valleys and waterholes.

‘When you engage with this artwork you will be a part of the life-cycle of the grasses and weave into the journey of the bogong moth flying its songline and being cooked up for a feed.’
