  • Summary

    Borderland's Obscene Obstacle Course, is as weird as you make it. In it's core it is about getting from A to B as fast as you can. Then you do it again, but add a new rule!

    Full description of concept

    Jump over! Climb under! Balance! Swing on the rope! Watch out for the water! Crawl! Get naked!(?)
    Do it faster!

    We want to build an obstacle course, mainly out of wood. It will be open all day and closed at night (to limit the number of people bruising their knees because it is to dark to run). We will also arrange events and competitions during the week!

    About the group/Artist

    Team and plan

    Viktor Ansund and Josefin Wengstrom. Famous from Waterfall videos on facebook - add us if you don't know what we are talking about (or don't - it's not that spectacular)
    We will pre cut wood in Stockholm so it will be easy to assemble in the quarry. The team will arrive early on sight in Boesdal, so the course will be open all week long!

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    Building stuff out of wood creates lots of moop, but we have a awesome recycling system in our camp with a burn barrel and everythaang. So we are good.

    Budget overview

    800 Transport
    3000 Wood and building material
    300 lights

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    We really want help in workshopping fun/wierd obstacles, and also people to actually help build it on sight! The more hands the better the soup.
    We also welcome people to bring their own obstacles. (please, only your tangible ones, your traumatic childhood will be hard to climb over...)

    What is this?
