The Heart of the Planet - Nish Mip

Nish Mip, the British artist, is known for her expressive and atmospheric installations. She has won several awards at UWA and shows now a new work in the Starbase Gallery of the DID. It has the title "The Heart of the Planet" and is a visual science fiction story. Remarkable is also the soundscape of this installation, consisting of mysterious noises, howling of creatures and snippets of words or what could be identified as human-like language. Turn on your sound to the maximum, so you will be able to dive into this world of a foreign planet with its phantastic colors and maybe you will be able to find "the Heart of the Planet".
The Opening is on Friday, the 7th of October at 2pm SLT.
