We get the world we can imagine!
The dark forces have their visions straight - it's time for us to create ours!
By imagining beautiful things they come to life! When you think about something, a memes is created and the idea will be physiologically wired into your brain. The more you fire the more you wire… if you share your dream with others, it will grow and when many people dream together, it’s the beginning of a new reality..
Radical change and a paradigm shift is on the horizon
There are big question marks around the future on this planet...
We buy things we don’t need, for money we don’t have – deplete resources, poison the earth, cut down the forests, fill the ocean with plastic and drain the agricultural lands. We’re in the sixth mass extinction on Earth…
The consequences of climate change will become more and more severe – drought, typhoons wiping out societies, cultures, lives - economical crisis - turmoil - wars - refugee catastrophes – political polarization… economical crisis – social segregation – terror…
People are scared
There’s a lack of hope
There’s no global leadership
The dark forces have their visions straight. IS is building the Caliphate, nationalist parties are painting the picture of a world from the past that was so much better and much more safe… if we only close the borders and reintroduce fascism things will get better. Big business and the global power houses are in bed with eachother and cynically calculates that they’ll survive the catastrophe even if billions will suffer or die…
We need a counter vision!
We need hope!
We need something to believe in!
We need the collective imagination and all the dreams of things that seems impossible!
Every successful project needs a goal, otherwise people won't know where to direct their energy and all thier goods efforts will be scattered or even destructive. The same thing is applies for groups, communities and societies at large.
Lets gather the best visions, most colorful dreams and hopeful solutions under one umbrella and start co-creating the visions of the future!
Lets look into the economic system, how to handle recourses, societal norms, agriculture, internet, democracy, robots, spirituality, communities, states, work, recreation, space travels and what ever you can think of inside or outside the current box
PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION OF THE PROJECT
People are invited to co-create the future by submitting their visions prior to, or during the event. The visions can manifest themselves in any preferred form. Texts, drawings, photos, models, performances or other format are welcome! The visions will be collected and displayed in a chest so that people can take part of them and they can inspire and grow as memes. The chest will be lit at night and have a descriptive text and some paper and pencils that, so that new visions can be added at any time of the day. Big visions will be accommodated and displayed in suitable ways. After the Borderland the visions will be taken to Burning Man, more people will be inspired and add their contributions. After Burning Man the growing amount of visions will continue their journey… perhaps on the internet... perhaps at other locations.
The project will be carried out by Isadora who will also take it to Burning Man
No moop from the project is expected, ut regular moop sweeps will be made to ensure that people haven't left moop by the art
