Event description

Description

Lingual Net: 100% real human responds to artist Mia Salsjo's impressions of Footscray as a multi-ethnic and multicultural suburb, one of the most diverse parts of Melbourne.

With a background in both visual art and music composition, Mia took a considered approach to the many linguistic and visual codes present on the streets of Footscray. She listened to and recorded local people talking about their philosophy of life and what it means to be human, working with local weavers and musicians to create a film of the conversations converted into music notation.

Accompanying the video recording are large woven banners featuring the words '100% Real Human', forming the iconic visual elements in this exhibition. All of the sights, sounds, words, ideas and musical intonations of Footscray have been woven together to form the ‘Lingual Net: 100% real human’.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Mia graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2010 with qualifications in both Fine art (Masters) and music improvisation. Since then she has been practicing between Australia, Indonesia and Cuba, developing projects that interweave cross-cultural imagery, music notation and socio-political symbolism.
