    Full description of yer concept

    Æther Plaza is a part of the brand new Elements Village, which gathers gifts and experiences related to the five elements.


    Æther Plaza is a place to hang out daytime. Besides being the centre point in Elements Village, connecting the other elementary experiences (Water Nation, Earth Nation: The Cave, Fire Bar, Air Nation, Elementary Blender), Æther Plaza will be an outdoor plaza, shaded by sun sails up in the sky. The plaza will sometimes be used as a dance floor for daytime parties, sometimes a workshop area where you can attend classes in our very own Elementary School. Visual arts will make the five elements come alive, and all borderlings are invited to co-create an art piece based on the elements. We will also lit up the plaza with mood-lifting, element-inspired lights.

    The plaza will consist of beautiful sun sails attached to trusses consisting of poles in the ground. The trusses will also be used to hold the platforms in Air Nation, so Æther Plaza is a crucial part of realizing Air Nation.

    Elementary School
    Our "Elementary School" will contain workshops and classes in dancing, massage, DJ:ing, heart-healing, cuddly human spaghetti and what not. The classes will be held outdoors in the Plaza if the weather allows, otherwise in a workshop tent.

    About the crew / artist

    Elements Village is a brand new concept, and the team behind it is a mixture of newbies and old bees. And quite a few old bears. Based in Gothenborg, Sweden, we are 30 or so enthusiastic creatures getting together celebrating the five elements.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    Being a plaza full of people, we expect some moop to be "forgotten" by visitors, and we will have daily moop sweeps of the plaza. Elements Village also have a MOOP lead.

      Details

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? We will need electricity for lighting and music (daytime). Watts: TBA

    • Will there be light? We will light up the camp with signs and mood lights, maybe visual arts showing on the sun sails also night time.

    • Will anything BURN? No. Fire is a completely different element, duh!

    • What is your audio footprint? We will have daytime parties, so there will be some funky noise daytime.
