To the Day is comprised of two site-responsive performances created by Johnston for Center for Art on Migration Politics (CAMP) addressing issues of trauma and social invisibility among migrant communities in Denmark.

The purpose of the work was to produce performance actions which created direct interactions with people caught within the asylum process and with arts audiences, transcending barriers of access, interpretation and dissemination. Johnston sought to develop dialogues with volunteers, social workers and refugees around questions of displacement and social exclusion. She publicly articulated personal perspectives on the Northern Irish ‘Troubles’ as part of the project aims to identify and engage with issues of global conflict and of the mechanics of differentiation exploited by media reporting
