I dream of visualizing a tale of once again coming to life – and to share it with you. I'd love to use material gifted by borderlings, actually interweaving the tale with the physical objects from the ones also contributing to the creation of the tale.
NOT ASKING FOR FUNDING, BUT WOULD LOVE GIFTED MATERIAL IF YOU HAVE SOME TO SHARE!
I'm dreaming of making a quilt and in that way carrying on a tradition from my grandmother. I want to use the quilt as a medium to tell a tale, very much having it's origin in Borderland and the experience that it can be. But also the tale of entering a community of love and positive energy, a community that gives you the power to discover yourself and others and grow into a better version of you.
One virgin Borderling now turned into a burner at heart.
Right now the team consists of me and my sewing machine :-). I have made a first sketch of the design and plan to have the whole quilt done before arriving at Borderland. Would like the quilt to be at the quarry the whole week (if there's somewhere to hang it – if there's not it's still coming with me in my bag!)
The quilt itself will be made before arriving in the quarry, so moop will be taken care of in the default world. Anything else needed (things to mount, lights etc) will be brought out of the quarry upon leaving.
I would love to make this quilt with fabric, sequins, patches, lace, buttons or whatever else that other borderlings would like to share with me. That way the quilt will be a patchwork of pieces of the people that make Borderland and the burner community into what it is (no voodoo stunts, I promise ;-) ... ). It would be such a beautiful thing to know that the visual tale was made up by contributions from people having taken part in creating the actual tale. And if there's a place to harbor the hanging quilt somewhat sheltered, but still for borderlings to be able to see it, it would be wonderful! If you have something to share, please join the facebook-group (link called 'the dream website' to the right) to get info on how to gift material.
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.
