Dream tree

Peter Munthe-Kaas


A tree where you can leave something behind, that you don't need in your life anymore by writing on laser cut leaves. The tree will be one of 10 trees that will all be lit up by LED spotlights from below. Everything left will be burned on the last night.

Full description of concept

At the dream tree you can write a letter for yourself or just leave an object that has a symbolic meaning for you. The purpose is to leave something behind. Something you wont need at the Borderland and that you wont need when you return to the default world either.

We will laser cut "leaves" to write on. Everything left will be burned on the last night.

The Dream tree is actually not about dreams, but about making dreams possible. The tree is meant as a catalyst for realizing your dreams. As you leave something behind at the tree you open yourself for new ways of being. We all hold on to particular ways of being, ideas about the world or people that are unnecessary (and in many cases limiting), this is a chance to let some of them go.

The tree will be one of 10 trees that are all lit up from below by colored LEDs, creating a magical atmosphere around the space.

Team and plan

The team is the [re]connect camp.

Before the Borderland we will lasercut all the leaves and buy LED spots.

The project is quite simple to stage when we are there. It is all about picking the right trees.

Moop plan (matter out of place)

There will probably be "leaves" falling off the tree during the Borderland. We will do our best to collect it during the festival and get it back to the tree - at the end everything will burn.

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

If you have ideas that could interact with this in any way, just contact us.

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.
