Camp Metamorphoasis (Johan L Heinstedt)

  • Summary

    Inspired by the iconic Hollywood sign, this artwork will be visible day and night on top of one of the many hills in the quarry, displaying short but LARGE messages that'll remind you of the silliness of being you.

    YOU are in control of the message!

    Full description of yer concept

    Imagine walking along in the quarry, minding your own business and thinking about whether or not you should go to that threesome spanking workshop in 10 minutes. Then suddenly you look up, and BAM.... On top of a hill, in big white letters it says "DO THE THING!", and by then you know that that was the sign you had been waiting for.

    Inspired by the iconic Hollywood sign this piece of art will be visible 24/7 on top of one of the many hills in the quarry, displaying short but LARGE messages that might give you everything from tiny bites of wisdom to provocative one-liner questions or just plain nonsense, that'll probably stop you in your tracks and possibly make you think. The best part about it is that it's visible from (almost) any place in the quarry... and it's INTERACTIVE.

    We present to you… BORDERWOOD.

    Be part of creating an soon-to-be iconic piece of art at the Borderland!

    The idea is that anyone can add, move or remove each letter to create their own message they want to broadcast! Almost exactly like a Scrabble board!

    The construction is quite simple. One can go far with with some plywood and a few buckets of white paint. Although it requires some preparations to cut out all the letters before the festival, and then transport them safely. Funding goes to wood, paint, rebar and screws.

    During night-time we want to light up the letters with a number of construction lamps. We're gonna need to buy some torches!

    About the crew / artist

    Camp Metamorphoasis like to provoke thought and emotion! And the bigger the better.

    How can other Borderlings co-create with you?

    Any kind of help is needed. If someone knows where I can find large quantities of plywood, please let me know.
    We will need help to both prepare the letters and install the artwork in the beginning of the week.

    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? Yes. 8 construction lamps * 30W = 340 W

    • Will there be light? Only during nighttime. Powerful construction lamps that light up the artwork.

    • Will anything BURN? The letters/words will be tightly secured in the ground so that they wont tip over and fall down because of weather and wind. Wires and rebar will do the trick to stabilise.

    • What is your audio footprint? None.
