The awakening of the flappity creature of light and wisdom

Jorinda Buregren, Edvin Buregren


We are building a transparent kinetic bird/wave/tomopteris (GIF-SEARCH THAT SHIT!) moving through the pyramid. 10 meters long, with its wing span of 6 meters it is moving graciously in waves, WITH FRIGGIN' LASERS! (but only we make the full funding!)

Full description of concept

The flappity CAD!

The awakening of the flappity creature of light and wisdom is flying through the pyramid shooting laser beams on the walls following a perfect sinus wave. It is - in our view - sort of the picture of the Borderland and it's participants. Beautiful and gracious, and playfully silly and outrageous at the same time!

The awakening of the flappity creature of light and wisdom is built out of transparent tubes hanging in strings. The strings are being pulled by a system of pulleys and stepper motors making the wave movement. Inside the tubes there will be LED-strips lighting up the pyramid. If we get fully funded we would like to use pixel LEDs, so it can light up like a comb jellyfish! (GIF SEARCH THAT TOO, MMMMHHHH). IF we do, we will also make it interactive - it will be possible to change the pattern with the help of motion sensors!

Team and plan

Team: Jorinda and Edvin builds a small prototype in May. We try to prepare as much as possible before getting the stuff to Boesdal. We hope for the aid of co-creators on the spot! Some friends have volunteered already...

Moop plan (matter out of place)

Only moop will be drooling from beholders. The rest we take with us.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

CALLING ALL RIGGERS! We need climbing equipment, and maybe even someone skilled in climbing the pyramid...
And also help building on the spot! And if someone is based in Malmö wants to be a part of this - give us a shout!

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? Yes, for the engine/s driving the wings.and for LEDs and lasers. 2-300W-ish.

  • Will there be light? Yes, LEDS & LASERS!

  • Will anything burn? No burnables :(

  • What is your audio footprint? None, Flappity flaps silently.

  • Forces of nature We would like to be placed inside the Pyramid, hanging from the ceiling and protected from Gaia's rage.

  • Next random dream
