  • Summary

    The Book of Hearts will contain as many blank pages as memberships for The Borderland 2017. Each Borderling will get one page on both sides to imprint the emotions of the heart during the festival. The Book will be located on a wooden magical stand.

    Full description of concept

    Bindings for the Book of Hearts will be made manually and blank pages that will undergo a magical process of incantation with Copal and Dragon's Blood. A stand will be created specifically for this special Book of Hearts. This Dream is about keeping a magical journal of one page for each of the Borderlings attending The Borderland 2017. And hopefully will be a recurrent one for every year until the end of time. Every Borderling will get a chance to co-create this Dream, because each one will have a page to imprint the emotions of her or his heart whenever he or she is inspired to do so during the festival. The Dream will be to keep a record of these Book of hearts for every year the festival continues. The Magical processes that the book will go through before it gets to Boesdal will be performed to support the perfect inspiration that the Pages will give to each to the Borderlings at the moment they are ready to imprint words on the pages and it will be a healing and magical moment.

    Plan - Work In Progress
    Current Actions:
    - Gathering information former precise budget
    - Connecting with friends to get input on LEDs for lighting up the stand

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    Per se, this project will no generate any MOOP. The Pages will be well bound to the book, and unless someone rips them off, which I count on not happening given the sacredness of this book to all the borderline's experience, there should be no MOOP.

    Budget overview

    Work In Progress:
    Dragon's Blood
    Masonite Boards
    Wood for Stand
    Ink pen

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    I am looking to get some support from someone with experience in creating book bindings with wood.
    and someone to provide advise with LEDs powered by battery to illuminate the Bookstand
