Bubbly Birth of Unicorns

Rainbow Midwives

  • Summary

    How is a Unicorn born? Naked, but through a giant soapbubble of course.

    We are going to facilitate the birthing ritual of unicorns. Bring your horn or make your own and then participate in the birthing ritual melting through a soapbubble wall.

    Full description of yer concept

    The dream
    Come and craft your own unicorn horn and later at the birthing ritual, get naked and wet and pass through a giant soapbubblegate into your life as a unicorn!

    The first part of this dream is for people to craft a unicorn horn out of common material that we provide.
    The second part and the main idea and experiment:
    The birthing ritual is to slowly pass through a wall of soapbubblefilm without breaking it. Coming out on the other side you have proven to be a real unicorn, no matter if the bubble breaks or if you are born whole.

    Get crowned with your unicorn horn, celebrate with a glass of bubbles and gallop away into the wild!

    The technical stuff:
    The base idea is to build a gate that contains a giant soapbubble wall. The goal is to pass through the wall without breaking it.
    This doesn't come without know how - the Rainbow Midwives have long experience with the art of soapbubbling.
    And just as a fact : it is possible to put you finger or hand into a bubble but I don't think a whole body has ever been done!

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? Maybe for a few LED lamps to make it look nice but only if we can borrow the lamps on site.

    • Will there be light? Since people will be naked we'd rather be in the sunshine? Maybe a few LED lights for the prettyness.

    • Will anything BURN? Our souls will burst into rainbows, but no actual fire.

    • What is your audio footprint? Very little, maybe some background music from a small speaker, maybe we will have a rainbowpriest (MC) but only if there is an actual audience?

    • Next random dream
