  • Summary

    Their existence has for long been unknown but in this dream the lost fauna of Boesdal will be (kind of) brought back to life when trippy looking fossils for the first time come back to The Borderland.

    Full description of concept

    Remember those mini dinosaur plywood skeleton kits you built as a kid? This is kind of the same just on a bigger scale and much more trippy. Using 12mm plywood sheets we'll show the evolutionary origins of what Borderlanders looked like at the beginning of time.

    Construction wise it’s about cutting out shapes of plywood and slide them on to each other. We'll make CAD models and print out accurate vectors to use as templates for cutting out the shapes with jig saws. If anyone has access to a cheap/free CNC router we might even cut some corners and have a cold beer together instead.

    On site, its all about assembly, applying a white coating to our creations and installing cool lights to illuminate the beasts at night.

    Any co-creator is welcome. We've got skills in 3D modelling, old school drawing and cutting shit up and if you'd like to learn or even better share your own tricks then come along!

    About the group/Artist

    Idea initiated by the "Boesdal Explorers' Society" camp but looking forward to collaborate :)

    Team and plan

    Idea is to cut all the pieces in Stockholm, transport to Boesdal and assemble on site. Team members can get involved in all three stages or just some.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    If we don't burn these at the burn (if we have one) they will be transported back.

    Budget overview

    10 sheets of 12mm untreated Ply-wood 1700
    RGB and caleidioscope lights 750
    Coating (chalk & wallpaper adhesive) 250
    Saw blades 75
    Sandpaper 75
    Transport (shared) 850

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    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.


    •  The dream website

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? Probably just run the lights from batteries...

    • Will there be light? RGB and/or caleidioscope lights from underneath should give a cool effect

    • Will anything burn? Nope

    • What is your audio footprint? The fossils keep very quiet!

    • Forces of nature They've stood the test of time...
