After a 4 year hiatus from Afrikaburn, I was excited to participate in the 2019 festival with a group of very special people. The theme this year was 'Ephermeroplis' and we decided to register an artwork to put on the playa. The idea germinated on a trip to Manguzi last year, and over a few months one artwork morphed into two. Friends of ours had already built a beautiful geodesic dome known in Tankwa as 'The Living Room', which we planned to borrow and assemble. And then, since we were talking about ephemerality... the play of light and dark... a shadow puppet theatre appeared in my mind. Out on the playa, sitting in the round, cozy Living Room, the theatre was quickly nicknamed 'The Living Room TV'.
