  • Summary

    "The Tunnel" is a place of joy, weird sound, colourful LEDs and... the magical power of laughing gas! Take a balloon, enter the tunnel and experience it with a distracted mind.

    Full description of concept

    "The tunnel" is a approx 3m x 3m huge dark room. With several Arduino-controlled LEDs on the sides and in the roof, as well as several speakers, it invites people to experience their senses in a way never known before. People take a balloon and enter the room in groups of up to 5. On its floor we build a cuddle puddle. Sound and light are programmed to strengthen the effects of the laughing gas. If possible we want to add fog and smell. The more senses are involved the more distracted visitors will become.

    We encourage people to visit "the tunnel" with a stranger and experience the depth of a hug on laughing gas.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    balloons. we will provide trash bins and collect the balloons.

    Budget overview

    Wood: 1.700
    Fabric: 750
    Cuddle Puddle: 1.000
    LEDs, sound etc.: 2.000 +

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    Who ever wants to bring stuff that glows, blinks or makes weird sounds is invited to join us. People could also use the space for ceremonies, such as tea ceremonies, cake orgies or other ideas including smell, taste, visuals, tactile experiences or sound.

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.


    • Do you need electricity from the grid? yes - we have not figured out - it should run approx. 25 meters of LED-strips / Neopixels with 60 or 120 LEDs/m

    • Will there be light? yes, LEDs inside. We will also illuminate "the tunnel" with LEDs from teh outside

    • Will anything burn? no

    • What is your audio footprint? yes, but not too loud. it will mostly include wird sounds that can be heard inside "the tunnel"

    • Next random dream
