Design Concept

In Hobart Tasmania (AUS) we visited the Museum of Old & New Art (MONA), a truly weird and wonderful experience. It’s too much to include in an artist’s statement, but you can read all about it at: MONA

It is built, three stories down, into sandstone cliffs. On the top level I took a photograph looking down three levels into a space that was intentionally built to be disorienting. The floor is in the upper right corner.

The space angling down from the corner is a walkway into which people can enter, one at a time, to feel even more disoriented. (see photo)
In Corel Draw, I played with the photo, erasing distracting details and drawing in a series of orbs that seem to float through space and contrasting with the geometric architecture. The vast expanse of neutral tones seemed to need a little color, so I added one rectangle of brilliant red, unapologetically relating to nothing else, just like much of the art in the museum.
