  • Summary

    The Gangway will provide some sort of rather comfortable floating access to the swimming water across the slippery stones - some times dry - some times wet

    Full description of concept

    At Bl2015 and BL2016 many co-creaturs DREAMT about a way to get into the Baltic Sea for swimming without stepping on the very slippery stones along the coast. This is a project to met these DREAMS :-)

    The Gangway will provide some sort of rather comfortable floating access to the swimming water across the slippery stones - some times dry - some times wet, water depth will be aprox 60 cm.

    The gangway will be floating and moving with the waves, and not expected to be dry at any time.

    The gangway will be build in 6 sections, each 2,5 m long and 1,2 m wide

    Sections near the beach will be supported, the rest will be floating, to be designed on locating…

    The gangway will be anchoraged by some big ballast bags ( to be designed ) and hardly resist a heavy storm, and sorry about that 

    The gap between the sections will be 7 to 14 cm. The gap will be kept to a minimum with springs, but has to be flexible.

    In the dark the seabed will be illuminated.

    About the group/Artist

    for now just the project manager

    Team and plan

    Team April6th : the project manager designing and calculating.
    The wood for the six frames will be prepared at home before transport to Boesdal Friday 29th.

    We need four co-creators who will arrive at the venue Friday July21st and dedicate themselves to build the units at the beach, and install it all in the Baltic Sea.

    After
    We need four co-creators to commit themselves to stay at Boesdal until everything is deconstructed and gone.
    We have two different plans:
    1) if we want to burn the decks at the Big Burn Saturday evening, we need four ppl to demolish the sections Saturday July29th, and continue demolishing Sunday and Monday until late, to bring most stuff to the recycling station in Store Heddinge.
    or
    2) If we want to keep the Gangway for a last dip Sunday morning, we need four ppl to commit themselves to stay until Monday 31st late to demolish the sections, and bring to the recycling station Monday ?

    If the Gangway should be torn into piece by a storm, we need to improvize

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    The deck built by natural tree might be burned at the Big Burn, otherwise brought away.
    The frame tree build by impregnated tree will be brought away.
    All steel bolts and other units will be brought away.
    All stuff for the ballast bags will be brought to the recycling station in Store Heddinge

    Budget overview

    Wood, brackets, tools : DKK.13.200,00
    Illumination : DKK, 1.000,00
    Transport: DKK. 1.500,00
    SUM DKK.15.700,00

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    As above : wee need co-creators to assembly and build July 21st to 23rd and to demolish 29th to 31st.

    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.

      Details

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? yes, just 100 W.

    • Will there be light? Yes, the seabed will be iluminated in the dark by ten under water LED spots

    • Will anything burn? No, everything will be in/above the Baltic Sea

    • What is your audio footprint? Many happily screaming people enjoing the swimming water

    • Forces of nature If the Gangway should be torn into piece by a storm, we need to improvize some actions. This job might have quite low priority aganist other damages.

    • Next random dream
