  • Summary

    The beach should be entered in style! The rainbow will be part of the landscape, able to be viewed from afar & frame in the beach road. Borderlings will walk under it on the way to bathe. It'll light up at night & of course there's treasure at the end!

    Full description of concept

    The beach. Everyone loves it! You wanna bathe, you wanna hang out, you want to watch all those beautiful people basking in the sunlight. But first you have to get there! Getting to the beach involves walking on a road. There’s nothing wrong with the road per say, but… What if you got to walk under a frickin RAINBO- uhm, I’m sorry, under a frickin POLYCHROMATIC PASSAGE on your way! Wouldn’t that be just dandy?!

    About the group/Artist

    The Dying Camp are a bunch of totally amazing dying creatures consisting of creators, artists, musicians, performers, sound engineers, healers, magicians, unicorns, fairies among others. All of them have been to previous Burns and to Borderland.

    Team and plan

    Central planning, Shopping and Transport will be done by key members Olof Larsson, Wanda Christ and Joacim Svedlund. Construction will be done by key members and the rest of the camp. Shopping will be done in the weeks before the festival, transported on the sunday before the festival to the site and construction will be done on Monday. If construction takes longer than one work day, the painting and lighting part of construction will be done on Tuesday.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    The rainbow will consist mainly of wood which can be burned at the end of the week. The non-wood elements and other parts we might want to keep will be disassembled and returned the same way we brought it.

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? Yes - The draw of 70 meters of EL-wire... that's, not so much?

    • Will there be light? Yes! If we get enough granting! El-wire in the the colours represented on the rainbow will illuminate it by night!

    • Will anything burn? No

    • What is your audio footprint? Only the slight gasps of beauty, carried gently on the wind.

    • Forces of nature The rainbow runs a real risk of tipping over, which is why we'll make sure to build a solid, well-engineered support structure with a low center of gravity and enough weight to keep it steady.
