In her earlier body of work State Space, Boreham investigated interior spaces in New Zealand institutions such as military bases, police stations and nuclear science facilities. Although these functional institutional spaces are depicted devoid of people, traces of their presence are revealed through the arrangement of barrier ropes, chairs, and acts of graffiti.

For the Te Tuhi billboards, Boreham expands upon State Space by introducing digital colour blocks into these utilitarian sites to conceal graffiti and marks that suggest human interaction. This act of concealing or censoring mirrors the authoritarian functionality inherent in these spaces.
