Ephemerality (from Greek – ephemeros) is the concept of things being transitory, existing only briefly. Rising like a dusty mirage out of the Karoo heat, there’s a city we call home. It’s a manifestation of our collective imagination, and the culmination of our collective efforts. It comes and goes, and ebbs and flows. It’s transient, temporary and transitory. It’s neither here, nor there. It is real in its unrealness. “Out of nothing, we created everything.” – Larry Harvey Once a year, a city rises from the Tankwa dust: Tankwa Town. It’s an ephemeral city that we build together – so it’s fitting that this year’s theme is ‘Ephemeropolis’. What’s in store? Only you know the answer to that question – because unlike other events, you build Tankwa Town. Out there, there’s no ‘someone else’ – there’s just us, doing it together. And only together can we perform the magic of building a temporary city, filling it, and then making it vanish, leaving no trace.
