Abstract [en]

In the rapid development of the modern 24-hour society we increase our demands for continuous services of information. Control over mind and body as a reaction over the loss of understanding processes and systems on all levels in society. Who to be and how to be it is being taught trough different actors on the market. In order to fit everything in our schedule there is no value to slow down and ask ourselves if it is really necessary, what we will gain by it and what we might lose. 

A norm is created on how we should relate to things, how much time is justified to spend on a matter before it becomes non-profitable for our individual development. The actors on the market know how precious our time is, both for us and for them. We become comfortable with not needing to waste time on trying things out, since there are tests already made by others to rely on. Each day we are confronted with a multiply of choices, a condition enabled by our strive for personal expression. 

   

Sleep, a symbol for dreams, the unconscious and uncontrolled, a private place reserved for mental recovery? Is sleep or rest our last resort, the last territory to be maximized?

In this report I am investigating how the concept of Makeshift Assembly can be used in the work process in order to enable a new design aiming not to repair an already given structure but instead create new potentials of development. I explore how yet unspoken needs can increase the understanding of a situation and reveal new possibilities. By valuing our everyday life and working with small changes I search for design opportunities to enable persons to act towards change.
