Dr Strangetub or: How I Stopped Worrying and Re-Entered the Womb

Hampus Lindblad


A badtunna at BL! No further summarizing necessary as far as I'm concerned! What more could you possibly ask for? Being in a hot tub is second only to being in a hot tub on a boat. Or in space. But that would require effort to keep the water inside. So no

Full description of concept

I want to BUY (there I said it!) a _luxurious_ wood-heated tub (integrated stove) that can handle salt water. It will feature LED lights and an electrical pump for when we need to fill up/change the water. I would place it above the rock wall overlooking the ocean or in vicinity of the Twisted Spa. The tub can fit 8-10 people at a time. If this project is funded I will make sure to bring the tub back to future Borderlands.

Yes, I fully agree with what you're thinking. This is fairly boring thing to do, buying a ready-made product like this. Compared to the Black Cloud project we won't have wonderful moments of immense joy and accomplishment contrasting to previous moments of sheer exhaustion and despair over the apparent disaster and some unforeseen issue threatening the whole project. I've been there, multiple times! This would be an easy-peasy straight from the factory "the dark side has it perks!" kind of thing. And the water will be consistently and perfectly warm. That's it!

Team and plan

Team is just myself at this point and that's fine. Others are more than welcome to join though, but that would just be a bonus and is not required for this project to happen.

Moop plan (matter out of place)

I will continuously clean out the ashes and recruit bathers to aid me in this. Same goes for any other moop left lying around the tub during the week.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

They can co-fund it with me and help with transportation of it and its firewood. Maintenance during the week such as filling it up with fresh (salty) water and emptying the ashes. Last but not least use to for their own great pleasure!

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 integrated LED lights and the electrical pump (occasionally). Will provide long enough cables for this.

  • Will there be light? Yes, LED lights in the tub illuminating the water as well as a IP-class (water proof) floodlight making the tub stand out from a distance at night.

  • Will anything burn? Only the wood placed inside the stove to heat the water.

  • What is your audio footprint? None. The occasional splash and intense moans of pleasure as cold people undress and enter the hot water.

  • Forces of nature This tub will be its own force of nature, exerting gravitional force on tired burners that would put minor black holes to shame. Seriously though. this baby weighs well over a tonne when filled with water and is very compact (no sails attached). It won't move unless we want it too and really make an effort.
