  • Summary

    This will be the third year we are bringing the Twisted Spa and our Transparent Sauna to Borderland. Last year it was 24/7 activity but we had ONE BIG PROBLEM, it was not hot enough. With guidance from Finnish Sauna Lovers we will bring A BIG HEATER!

    Full description of yer concept

    Twisted Spa is a transparent Sauna with the shape of a truncated octagon. It is made of poly-carbon-plastic built on a wooden platform, heated by a wood burning stove. Twisted Spa was 2017 up and running almost all days and nights for people to heat up before and after they went for a swim in the ocean. The space is enough for 10 people standing in the sauna at the same time.

    This year we will bring a bigger and hotter heater!
    Twisted Spa will co-locate together with hot-tubs at the beach to co-create a nice area.
    We will engage people to do sauna rituals and other happenings.
    Twisted Spa is up for anyone to heat up with wood and fire.

    About the crew / artist

    Mathias Gullbrandson is lead in the team. He has done dreams and art projects at Borderland since 2010.

    How can other Borderlings co-create with you?

    YES! Who else that want can go in to the sauna and heat it up. It was done successfully during Borderland 2017 almost 24/7.
    We will also work on people to hold sauna rituals at Twisted Spa

    What is this?

    Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.

    Dream crew



    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? 500W (for lights)

    • Will there be light? Some lights from a few cozy lamps.

    • Will anything BURN? We will bring instructions for people to heat the heater in a proper way. We have tested the construction for fire and heat - with good results. We will bring water and a fire extinguisher for safety.

    • What is your audio footprint? No
