Come to the temple of sea to wash away your worries and regrets! We build a sacred space for meditation and workshops, with adjacent tea room for relaxation. And we burn it in the end.
Sea is the cradle of all life: come and rest in the embrace of the big blue. Let the sea cleanse you and refill your proverbial half-empty glass.
We want to create a space for rituals, meditation and quiet contemplation. Next door there will be a tea room with workshops, socializing and of cource, tea. Maybe a virtual reality time trip to Borderland 2016, too.
To make this happen we bring in a truckload of second hand lumber. Building itself is a simple A-frame structure, reminiscent of viking longhouse or samish kota. Or maybe something completely different: we hope you'll join our workshops to decorate it.
Burn site and other details can and will be negotiated with organizers.
Group of artists, burners and creators from Helsinki and Malmö.
We did temple burn for Helsinki Decompression and this one will be even bigger, better and brighter.
Ash and cinder will be disposed of along with other burn-related moop. We will also collect all nails and screws with magnetic sweeper. Tearoom produces small amount of bio-moop, which we will take care of. Other than that, guests will handle their own moop.

Temple is all about cocreation, from build to burn. In between you can pop in for some quiet contemplation, join a workshop or just to enjoy a nice cuppa tea. We also invite everyone to bring in something personal and leave it in the temple, as well as your scrap wood for the burn.
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.
