Jenny Holzer has projected her latest artwork onto a structural beam in Sydney, with words of poems and stories constantly revolving around the four sides. These digital methods are common techniques for the artist, who likes to explore with projected forms.

The artist states on DesignBoom that "the text [she] chose was influenced by a people’s history, but the themes, such as love and survival, are universal." The main content for the poems and stories are based on the aboriginal people in Australia, who have a hard history of suppression when the British arrived in the country, and have since battled with diseases such as alcoholism and drug abuse. Hopefully this installation by Jenny Holzer will call attention to these people, and also help inspire those who read the text.
