Imagination Migration is a mural created by Chris Nixon in Karratha 2011 – this video documents the installation process. Set to a marine theme the work explores the migratory patterns of the Pilbara’s marine life, ignited by a central character Inkan.
Inkan acts as a catalyst for change amplifying the sea creatures characteristics, leading the imagination migration. Commissioned by the Shire of Roebourne in conjunction with The Youth Shed project. The project took a month to complete with 8 days and nights to paint the finished mural.
The size of the mural is approx 150 square metres spanning 38 metres and reaching 4.5 metres high. The mural was created using Acrylic and aerosol paint. The central character inkan has now inspired an interactive app and picture book which are now in development.
