  • Summary

    3 authentic relating bubbles will invite you to sit down and connect with other borderlings through eyecontact, storysharing, radical curiosity and more. At night the bubbles will be lit up and surrounded by a colored forest created with LED spots.

    Full description of concept

    We want to create 3 Authentic Relating "bubbles" where borderlings can meet, connect and share. The "bubbles" will be themed differently with simple instructions, for example with about eyecontact, telling your story, playing "the curiosity game" or similar.

    The bubbles will be made in wickerwork and be decorated with bright colors to make them visible and attractive. Each bubble will also have a clear instruction on the authentic relating exercise that can be done within. The bubbles will have space for 2-5 people each.

    We will buy the willow for the wickerwork, but use recycled materials for the rest.

    At night the bubbles will be lit up by battery driven LEDs. In addition they will be surrounded by a forest of colored light made with 20W RGB LEDs, which will light up the trees from below (we have those already).

    About the group/Artist

    The project will be placed near the [re]connect camp and will be built co-creatively by all of us.

    Team and plan

    During May we will plan the specific exercises and make beautiful instructions + make prototypes of how to build the bubbles.
    In June we will Make the final design for the bubbles and figure out how to decorate them.
    We will build the bubbles on the first day of the borderland.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    We will bring the bubbles and lights back with us. No moop should be created by participants.

    Budget overview

    Instructions in the bubbles: 100Dkk x 3
    Decorations and light for the bubbles: 300DKK x 3
    Cables for lighting up the trees: 500DKK
    Bubble Design (willow): Between 500DKK and 2000DKK each

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    If you find the dream interesting you are most welcome to get in touch. In particular if you have good ideas on how to construct bubbles out of wickerwork :)

    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.



    • Do you need electricity from the grid? We will need electricity for the LEDs that will light up the trees.

    • Will there be light? Yes. Lots of lights as described.

    • Will anything burn? Nope

    • What is your audio footprint? None

    • Forces of nature We will have to make sure that the grid electricity is secure if it rains. We also have to make sure that the bubbles cant rain or blow away.
