  • Summary

    Last year we discovered a rare species of mushroom, they light up in the dark and appear to communicate using telepathy. We heard the local tribesmen speak of a much larger mushroom; the Mothershroom. This is our attempt to find it!

    Full description of yer concept

    My name is maker, xenobiologist and mushroom botanist, with my crew of junior mushroom botanists.

    We venture out into the Borderlands and search for previously unknown lifeforms. Over the last few years we have discovered multiple peculiar species in the hills around Denmark. Two years ago we found a new species of bamboo, lighting up the area during the dark nights, while silently waving in the wind. Last year we discovered a rare species of mushroom - named Bordershrooms - that glow in the dark and are able to produce marvellous shows of light and colour!

    Their intricate lighting patterns seem to indicate their present state of mind, and they can communicate with each other across vast distances! They were able to continue communicating even when we tried separating them from their underground mycelium, suggesting that they use some kind of telepathy! We have reasons to believe they're communicating with all ecosystems on the planet, and perhaps even across worlds!

    They can grow absolutely anywhere, but are usually found in bushes around Hedeland. They seem to draw energy from the aether, in some way that we have not yet properly understood. But we've found they grow extra large in the presence of deep base beats and good vibes.

    During our travels we encountered some local tribesmen out in the wild bushlands. They spoke of tales of a much larger mushroom! One they call "The Mothershroom". They say it controls the entire population of Bordershrooms! I bet it has an important role to play in the larger ecosystem.

    This is our attempt to find it!
    We also hope to find even more Bordershrooms than we did last year!
    Please help fund our expedition!

    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.

      Details

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? Like 100 watts, during the day, for my cellphone charger. I need it when I go into the wild.

    • Will there be light? These mushrooms provide great ambience to romantic and exciting places with their nightly performances of light and colour.

    • Will anything BURN? I hope not!

    • What is your audio footprint? All other mushrooms we've ever found were silent. We have no reason to expect that these mushrooms make any sound what so ever.... right?
