''The Great Northern'' is a video artwork shot on location during a residency at the Banff Centre, Alberta, Canada in March 2012. The work responds to local stories of haunting and the uncanny and forms a part of Gill’s current research into psychology and history. It also sites pop culture references such as Kubrick’s "The Shining" and Lynch’s ''Twin Peaks.''
