What is the truth about the Gold Coast? Heterotopia explores the juxtaposition between the reported Gold Coast and the virtual possibilities caught up in sites of otherness. What reality is being explored becomes the fundamental question of this art work. Where there is fun there is also fear. While there is the impersonality of high-rise living there is also the fun at ground level. While solutions for crime and violence mean more police and heavier policing there is no attempt to look at the underlying causes for the sensationalised violence and gang related activities by the media. Is the Gold Coast to be New York at its worst? Is it the new Miami? Is the future so bleak for the coast that the end is automatically assumed to be horrifying? Heterotopia, with its over the top use of simulated fountaining blood, hypnotic soundtracks and virtual violence, suggests that there is a conflict between the constructed reality of the media and that reality which holidaymakers know.
