Painters Pentacle - temple of creation


  • 352






  • Summary

    This is a temple space that not only praises creation, it invites the visitor to also PARTTAKE in the creation. With 5 big 1x1.8 m2 canvases, the temple will be an evolving artwork of all the beings who chose to visit this space.
    (permanent structure)

    Full description of yer concept

    The Painters Pentacle will be the holy union of art and science, with a roof made of 5 "Sierpinskis Triangle" fractals in a lifted pentagon, as in the 'roof' of the icosahedron (one of the Platonic forms). In other words there will be beautiful geometry in the sky. The roof will be supported by 5 pillars, each holding a 1x1.8 m2 canvas in upright position, which will stand in each corner of the pentagon/pentacle. These canvases will contain the co-created and evolving art of the Painters Pentacle. The structure will be permanent, and the paintings can either be co-created further in future years, or the central paint table of the temple can be converted into an altar.

    How can other Borderlings co-create with you?

    I need lots of help!
    First of all you can come and paint :)
    Second I will need some hands to help transport the building material to the Borderland and around in the Borderland.
    Third I will need people to help construct the actual structure, as I have very little experience in construction.
    Fourth I will need to borrow the required tools for the construction. This includes tools to drill/dig holes in the ground, and a power drill for the assemblance - or maybe a nailgun. Also paint brushes for wood oil.
    Fifth, for the structure to be permanent, it will need to be painted with 2-3 layers of oil.

    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.
