No, your eyes are not deceiving you—if you’ve noticed there’s something creeping around Robina Town Centre, you’re correct. The shopping precinct just welcomed an invasion of Arthropodal Mini Beasts and we think they’re kinda cute.

A hybrid between nature and technology, the ‘Mini Beasts’ installation is a collection of beautifully curated insects with bodies be-jewelled in lights, colourful textiles and equipped with sensory and audio technology to enable them to respond interactively.

The whole mesmerising affair is the creation of award-winning conceptual artist Nicholas Tory who designed the immersive project to create colour and movement that’ll stop people in their tracks. We all get a bit zombie-like when we’re shopping for a long time, so what better way to reset your eyeballs than stare at giant colourful insects?

If creepy crawlies freak you out, the size, colour and beauty of these particular beasts might be enough to put an end to your phobia, but don’t take our word for it.

The Mini Beasts installation will be at Robina Town Centre until 28 August, so head there and see what all the fuss is about; you won't be disappointed.
