Scenes from Truck Life

Interpretations of an overland trip across Africa


Mike wanted to show how he felt joining us at a later stage of the trip. The 'otherness' of Africa (and by extension the group) is expressed by the exotic Tafel beer sign and the hippo warning. The next cell shows that the expected hippos are subsumed by the night noises of the group. Which one, to the newcomer, is more exotic? The cryptic footer 'Dark side of the dune', suggests that we are not going to be told.


At 3:40 am, Anonymous Anonymous challenged the artworld by saying:

What can be told... for those who didn't hear the story, there was a couple who heard loud, inhuman noises (i.e. snoring) and thought a hippo was in the camp. -MikeW
