The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart, Tasmania is the largest privately funded museum in Australia. It houses art and antiques from the private collection of David Walsh, a Tasmanian who has made a fortune by being a professional gambler. Walsh has described the museum as a “subversive adult Disneyland,” and rightly so. MONA is attracting an unprecedented number of tourists to Hobart, like myself.
But if you want to fully enjoy everything MONA has to offer, here’s a tip: go there with an open mind and an empty stomach.
Enjoy this short video I made, using the beat of my favourite installation, a water fountain spitting out words, and I think it represents the flood of information we are exposed to in our every days lives.
