Immerse your fingers, body and mind in this long, fluffy wall made out of assorted ribbons and fabrics of all colours, textures and sizes. Let your thoughts flow free with the wind, in a sensorial, rainbow-like, magical, contemplative experience.
Using a super simple structure made out of chicken wire and bamboo poles, we're gonna build either a long wall or maybe even a tunnel to support our colours. Since chicken wire is a pretty flexible material, we can build the structure however we prefer, depending on the location we find.
We'll be bringing some assorted ribbons with us that we plan to get as leftovers from shops and we'll potentially buy some too. But the idea is that EVERYONE can contribute to the installation, bringing their own ribbons and fabrics to tie to the fence.
We want to create a peaceful, quiet and colourful space where people can relax, contemplate, meditate and overall just have a great time by immersing themselves in a world of colours and textures.
While we want to have fun while creating something beautiful for everyone, we would also very much like to minimize the amount of waste as much as possible. So we love the idea of people taking ribbons with them in the end and making bands or keychains out of them to take home as memory from Borderland
We're a duo of designers and, most importantly, great friends from Brazil who are highly enthusiastic about colours and making beautiful things :) This is our first Borderland and we would love to contribute by building a peaceful space and a collaborative installation everyone can take part in and feel welcomed by.
We'll roll the chicken wire with whatever ribbons we've got left and take it away with us together with the bamboo poles.
|Make the space cosier with some picnic towels and cushions (only if we get more budget, but not mandatory)||1500|
|Assorted fabric and ribbon leftovers||700|
Everyone is welcome to bring their own ribbons and fabrics to attach to the wall and make it bigger, fluffier and prettier! And in the end they're free to take some ribbons with them too and make whatever souvenir from Borderland they want out of them.
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.
