  • Summary

    A dream for the water: A transparent geometric amazing sauna bringing the heat in late borderland nights. & modular raft structure for warm days. A place for heat, swim spectacles & unbelievable beauty. Beach house of lust & steam.

    Full description of concept

    We love the area down by the water at Boesdahl and want to turn it into a magic scene:

    The 3x3 meter rafts will be floating on the water and it will host adventures from Japanese to Finish style.

    We will make some modifications to the Twisted Transparent Sauna that was present at Borderland last year. This year we will provide instructions for anyone to heat the sauna and it will also be placed close to the Illegal pool.

    Team and plan

    Core team: Mathias Gullbrandson & Per Dahlgren
    Supporting team of 6-10 (ambiance, performances, construction, cleanup, light & electricity, outfits, story)

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    our leftovers will be ash, our visitors will leave a little bit of trash everyday. This will be taken care of during our daily moop round.

    Budget overview

    Building materials such as some plastic to repair broken details from last year (1500 DKK), we need to build a better platform for the sauna to stand on (1500 DKK), lights (400 DKK) and wood for fire the heater (600 DKK) and building materials for the rafts (1000 DKK), transportation (1000 DKK).

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    We welcome more additions to the spa.. on the beach, in the water, activities...
    We also want people to become fire-masters - people that got an instruction on how to heat the sauna.

    What is this?

    • Forces of nature we will have challenges with waves, wind and rain. We will secure our installations with the good equipment and have rutins for security. We will take away from the water when we are not there.
