My first Dark Mofo in Hobart has come and gone. Gotta say it’s pretty cool to see an entire city transformed by a festival!Dark Mofo also delivered a masterclass on how to leverage the power of media when it comes to event promotion. A CBD bathed in red, religious symbols, delightfully absurd art installations – all coming together to create mischievous controversy as only art can.
My favorite piece was probably Kyoji’s Spectra – a massive beam of light shooting 15km into the night sky (would’ve been insane if the beam was blood red!). Spectra is now a permanent installation at MONA and should light up again come the Summer Solstice.
See ya again next year Dark Mofo!
