Billy is a mid-century indigenous teenage prom queen who is as cute as a button. She is crowned with a tiara of cut Billy Button native wildflowers – hardy, butter-coloured pompom blooms on tall stems which resemble small, fluffy tennis balls. Buoyed by the cloudless sky blue and the grassy grey-green which are reminiscent of the colours of Melbourne’s 2020 Australian Open, she knows she has come home.
