Written on the occasion of West Space Journal 4, under the editorial impetus of 'What is a mining boom?', Heart of the Ocean is an adaptation of James Cameron's classic film Titanic. The text uses the original script with the addition of a few unlikely characters and their unbelievable truths as a context to visualise the socio-economic effect of mining wealth in Australia.
