Poop machine at MONA

Have you been to MONA in Hobart? I love going there – there is so much to see and to draw.

One of their pieces is a must-see: a installation that mimics the human digestive system – the ‘poop machine”!

I was busy drawing it when a group of people started gathering and blocking my view.

I didn’t realise it was “feeding” time and food was put into the machine on the left, and it moved through the different chambers to get digested. Finally, the machine pooped (on the right), and that was when everyone left. It was very smelly!
