  • Summary

    In this vehicle, time will move differently. On a journey through space and time, we want you to experience time dilation and leave our vehicle as a more mindfucked person. We'll move you in a certain direction of time and hopefully back again.

    Full description of concept

    A group of people walks into our cozy vehicle to chill out and suddenly starts to experience that time is acting differently. Clocks are slowing down, the music is distorted and a sudden crazy person appears which describes what is happening. That we are on a journey through space and time which will affect the mind of the poor borderlings. When time slows down time feels like an eternity. When time speeds up everyone we know and have ever met grow old and wither away. Earth also looked vastly different in different time periods. Did you know that if the elapsed time since big bang was described as a year humanity just happened in the very last SECONDS? We'll take you everywhere. Back to that time when you had tea in your garden with your grandmother, back to when humans first learned to harness the power of fire, back to when small critters were the only ones to survive a great asteroid impact on earth. And you know what? You are the grandkid of those critters. Because they were small and could hide in holes in the earth, because of that, you are here today. Anything can happen in this bus. And with all the power we have available, we will trick your mind that it is really happening.

    About the group/Artist

    We are a group who owns a bus and want to give borderlings an experience of space & time!

    Team and plan

    We are 6 people that are now transforming a big ass bus into a cozy and mind diluting home. Our plan is to finish the bus renovation before June and then focus on the time dilation experience. We will work with visual illusions and synchronization of sound, clocks, video and scientific knowledge.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    The art installation will not generate any MOOP

    Budget overview

    Equipment: Arduino, H-bridges, controllable lightning equipment (laser, stroboscope, LED)
    Materials: fabrics, spray paint, low voltage cable, quartz-clocks (cannot be used as regular clocks after modification)

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    Construct arduino controlled artifacts, share knowledge about physics or just come around to develop our ideas and play!

    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, between 1A to 5A

    • Will there be light? With LED:s

    • Will anything burn? no

    • What is your audio footprint? not very big.

    • Forces of nature 7 tons of bus. Not very easy to move
