KISS A STRANGER

Elisabeth

Summary

2 minutes silent eye contact, an intimate meeting between two people. What happens when we stop for a little while to just meet eyes? Nothing, everything? Magic? After 2 minutes, the participants will get an opportunity to kiss (optional but recommended).

Full description of concept

Imagine a booth with room for two, each person coming in from different entries. There is you, and another person you perhaps never met before. Eye contact. For two whole minutes. Imagine that.

What happens when two people stop for a second to take in the impressions of another human being - nothing? E v e r y t h i n g? We are hoping for magic, for boundaries being expanded, for a sense of yolo or pure chemistry. Who knows? You are the explorers! It is up to you what will happen. Two minutes and an oppurtunity to kiss a stranger and to share the magic.

Team will be there to take photos (optional), just before, during and after the possible kiss to document the reaction and enchantment that could occur with two strangers meet.

KISS A STRANGER had its premiere at Urban Burn Bizarre Star Bazaar in Stockholm - check out the beauty!:

KISS A STRANGER EXTRAVAGANZA is now coming to Borderland, and we will together bring it to the next level!

Team and plan

Right now we are three, all from Sweden, but would be happy to have more people joining us.
KISS A STRANGER will have opened and closed hours, decided by the team

Moop plan (matter out of place)

The activity itself will not produce moop.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

yes please - just contact me! I would love some creative minds helping with brainstorming of how to bring the activity to the next level. Also, might need camera stuff - a full size tripod and a camera if someone would offer. Please contact me with ANY comments or ideas or suitable materials!

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.

    Details

  • Do you need electricity from the grid? Yes please! For lamps, both decorative and working light. Also for minor charging of batteries etc.

  • Will there be light? Yes

  • Will anything burn? Nothing but burning desires :)

  • What is your audio footprint? Not as planned. Perhaps a signal for when a kiss happens or when the booth is free, but nothing ongoing and too loud.

  • Forces of nature I will bring a tarpaulin to cover the booth in case of rain. And figure out the lightness of the booth structure. Thank you for the reminder.

  • Next random dream
