A Challenge ~ Paper Boats in a Paper Sea

We have so many amazing creations available at the Fantasy Faire, but I wanted to bring special attention to this interactive art display by ~Refined Wild~. This is a project that we can all pull together to complete. Buy a paper boat, put your special design on it and set it off to float in Khyle’s paper sea.  Please read on to learn more about Khyle’s thoughts and motivations for creating this stunning display.

“Paper Boats in a Paper Sea” is a piece of interactive art created for the ~Refined Wild~ booth specifically for the 2012 Fantasy Faire.

It is an audience participation piece: In order for this artwork to reach its full potential, the audience must participate in building the piece itself.

In order to build “Paper Boats in a Paper Sea”, the audience must donate to the vendors to receive their participation item: A paper boat. There are two types of paper boat: A classical paper boat, and a paper boat with a candle.

The package you receive after you donate not only includes your chosen paper boat in all 3 colors as Souvenir Mod/Copy versions, it also includes ONE Mod/TRANS version of the boat, and a Notecard with a list of Instructions.

The Instructions will guide you through modifying a Paper Boat Texture (linked to you in the Instructions) to put on your Mod/Trans paper boat.

In customizing the texture, you are able to PERSONALIZE your paper boat with a MESSAGE.

You can customize it with:

– A story.
– A poem.
– A photograph.
– A drawing.
– An anecdote.
– A memorial.
– A wish.
– A prayer.
– A secret.
– A dream.
– A quote.
– A saying.

The regular/classic Paper Boats are standard and are a smaller donation. The Candle Paper Boats require a larger donation, but you get a larger space for your message and you also get to include a NOTECARD that people will receive when they click on your boat.

When you finish putting your Message on the Texture, you Upload your Paper Boat Texture (Remember: this costs $10L!) and you place it on your Paper Boat.

After TRANSFERRING the boat to me (Khyle Sion), I then take the paper boats, one at a time, and put them up in the display.

I’m hoping to completely fill the display with paper boats.

After the Faire, the boat will be returned to you with a small surprise inside, and a thank you letter for taking part in the installation. 🙂

Thank you for your interest in “Paper Boats in a Paper Sea”. If you have any questions, please forward them to me. Thanks!

Enjoy the Faire! 😀

We need to fill this pond with boats. Fill it to overflowing. To add your message to this project go to ~Refined Wild~ on Nu Orne at the Fantasy Faire.
