This project started as an idea for Light Nelson as a mechanical shadow puppet show for the 2016 event but with too many other projects there wasn't time to build it. The Arcade provided the opportunity to revisit the project and try out some ideas. A very big thank you to Alison who created the characters for the puppet show using her original artworks.

The project is designed to introduce the idea of programming in a simple fun way.
