What Year Was It? comprises of 110 incidents in democratisation movements from different places in East Asia,
sourced from 1949 to the present.

These movements demanded for reforms of the government, including human rights, rule of law, free elections, freedom of speech, and freedom of press. The demonstrations were largely peaceful; however, some of them ended up into brutal clashes starting by the government.

The work is displayed in a public space in Evolution House of Edinburgh College of Art.
