Born of a lightbulb it seemed

Every day, 7pm to 10pm Friday 7 May to Saturday 8 May

A woman lives alone, restless for expression. Staving off loneliness in a world clinging to the idea of Noah's ark where we must all travel to our deaths two-by-two, she begins to anthropomorphise objects in her house, until she finds the one. Is it a dissociative breakdown, or is it love?
