    A night spent exploring the light and shade of DARK MOFO, Hobart's winter festival.

    All shot with the GR, more here.

    I only know one use for MoFo, but I guess down under it means something else.

    Looks like they re-used the big white bunnies from Sydney's VIVID festival (I'm sure like the big yellow duck they get used everywhere). I'd never heard of Dark MOFO till now. I might not want to be saying Dark MoFo around back lanes and alleys to much though.

    Same ones, they were made by a Tasmanian designer (one of my uni mates did a lot of the fabrication)

    I googled it; I still don't know what it means but apparently it includes a nude solstice swim. I wonder if a nude solstice is different from a regular solstice.

    Cheers, Jock

    well finally after much Googling (and accidentally seeing a bunch of nude people standing on a beach......why do hippies always feel the need to shed their clothes?) I finally find out that MOFO is short for "Museum of Old and New Art: Festival Of Music and Art"

    Good plan; you might also burn your retinas.

    Cheers, Jock

    I googled Dark MOFO and discovered a case where Google was remarkably unhelpful. It took me so long to figure it out I missed the solstice, summer in our case. We also need a naked smilie. Get on that, Luke.

    Dark Mofo is just a winter arts/culture festival (top hit on google?) thats currently running in Hobart. 'FOMA' is the summer version, both of which are run by the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA - worth googling in itself).

    For the most part it's pretty tame, although they do have a nude swim in 6deg water. It's quite popular actually :smile:

    To be fair mate, my OP did say "A night spent exploring the light and shade of DARK MOFO, Hobart's winter festival."

    Besides, a little self-directed research never heart anyone...
