Seb Humphreys

An Archaeological Study of the Layering of Graffiti

This work is an investigation into the sedimentary layers of paint left behind by the thousands of artists that have painted Adelaide’s Morphett Street Bridge graffiti free-wall. Acquiring the original plywood panelling Seb Humphreys deconstructs the heavily accumulated strata on top, prying back the layers to uncover what was otherwise lost to the ephemerality.
