The Freeloading Puppet Family fon Fatteltwaat

Malin Bobeck and Sanna Benemar


We live only of your love and attention. Turn away one second and we will die. Immediately. Meet the Freeloading Puppet Family fon Fatteltwaat.

Full description of concept

They a ridiculously funny looking and have multiple personalities, one day they are the sweetest characters you ever met, the next they are cursing and throwing stuff around in anger. They are everywhere and they didn’t even buy a membership!
They are the Freeloading Family fon Fatteltwaat and they are brought to life by all of us at the Borderland.

The Fatteltwaat family will be created before the Borderland, as several puppets in different sizes, shapes and characteristics.
They will all be given a tag saying:
Bring me to life, or hand me over to someone who will!

Then they will be released out in to the Borderland and brought to life by all of us!
Maybe they will lighten up a rainy day in someone’s camp or jump around at the dance floor. Or maybe they will even join the Juice bar?!
They might walk alone for a while or find another member of the family and share journeys with them creating a new way of hanging out. The possibilities are endless!
Help us give them a body, then you can bring them to life!

Team and plan

The team consists so far of Sanna Benemar and Malin Bobeck. We will create the puppets before the Borderland, in June. And start to bring them to life at the Borderland.

Moop plan (matter out of place)

The puppets will be taged with a camp name to return them to when the Borderland is over or if they break. They will be professionally done so that people grow affectionate to them and don’t mistake them for trash. It’s our believe that all of us will help take care of them and bring them to life to prevent them from turning in to moop. After the Borderland we will take them back in to the default world and let them continue to bring joy! Or horror....

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

Before the Borderland we will invite everyone who want to help us create the puppets. During the Borderland every is cocreating the entire project by giving the puppets life, character and charm.
