extract:
At this point, MONA begins to feel like a mashup of the lost city of Petra and a late night out in Berlin. Everything about it is disorienting and yet somehow familiar, from the high-tech tropes to the low-culture babble, the black humour about so much that is so serious, the attention to aesthetics in a museum unsure if beauty exists or, if it does, if it matters.

Here is another beautifully moody addition to the modern Tasmanian style

by Alex Ball

https://vimeo.com/56687827

extract:
There is no golden age in the telling of Tasmania. For a quarter of its modern history, Van Diemen’s Land served as the British Empire’s gulag. A ferocious war was waged and lost by indigenous Tasmanians against the British colonists, an apocalypse that later inspired HG Wells to write The War of the Worlds. Fearing their subversive powers, fiddling and dancing were banned by the British governors who ran the island. In the ruins of the totalitarian state that was left when convict transportation ended in 1853, nothing much changed, because neither the prosperity nor the waves of emigration that transformed mainland Australia ever arrived in Tasmania.

This link is as much about living in a GOOGLE world as it is about the content of the wonderful article by RICHARD FLANAGAN.

While looking for some 'Tasmanian software' I found this amazing article about Tasmania, David Walsh and Mona. It is long...very long but puts down in words the complex relationship between the three.

Wonderfully written about the enigma that is Tasmania
