    Aziza's Friendship Compendium, 1st Edition (Annotated and Expanded)2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aziza's Friendship Compendium, 1st Edition is my illustrated textbook that is part-compendium, part-manifesto. It provides a social, cultural and political analysis of friendship as an inherently anti-oppression, radical tool of resistance. 

    This study of friendship investigates the form and function of friendship, as well as how neoliberalism and the patriarchy cause friction in its functioning, and the ultimate fantasy of friendship that is possible through its untangling of systems of oppression.

    The Annotated and Expanded version of the Compendium shared here details the process and outcomes surrounding this publication and my master's degree project as a whole. This project is an argument for friendship, a celebration of friendship, a dissection of friendship and a resurrection and recontextualisation of friendship.

    The civic space - a place held in common2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med projektet är bidra till en livfullhet och reaktivera torgen. Hur kan jag få människor att vilja stanna upp och spendera tid på torget? I mitt projekt undersöker jag hur jag kan skapa en lekfull gestaltning som som ger förutsättningar för nya möten och gemensamma upplevelser. Ett inbjudande rumsligt element som attraherar människor och uppmuntrar till att aktivera platsen. Mina undersökningsmetoder tar avstamp i analys av - och intervju på ett flertal torg. Detta tar jag vidare till längre samtal för att komma närmre människors behov och berättelser i våra gemensamma rum.

    Coffee Maker Patterns and the Design of Energy Feedback Artefacts2010In: DIS '10 Proceedings of the 8th ACM Conference on Designing Interactive Systems, 2010, p. 93-102Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Smart electricity meters and home displays are being installed in people’s homes with the assumption that households will make the necessary efforts to reduce their electricity consumption. However, present solutions do not sufficiently account for the social implications of design. There is a potential for greater savings if we can better understand how such designs affect behaviour. In this paper, we describe our design of an energy awareness artefact – the Energy AWARE Clock – and discuss it in relation to behavioural processes in the home. A user study is carried out to study the deployment of the prototype in real domestic contexts for three months. Results indicate that the Energy AWARE Clock played a significant role in drawing households’ attention to their electricity use. It became a natural part of the household and conceptions of electricity became naturalized into informants’ everyday language.

    On top of the mountain: The ascendant path of success2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

       An analogy between the social idea of success and the concept: on top of the mountain, using as an interactive and participative method, the activity of climbing mountains. What is success? Why do we climb the mountain? Is there enough space at the top? I try to answer these questions, by sharing thoughts and experiences with other mountain climbers, aiming to find an alternative to values like conquest, dominance, competition, independence and painful sacrifice. Do I have to play the hero to go to the top?These values reproduce a hierarchical structure that is deeply rooted in the patriarchal society, starting with our visual conceptualization of the bottom and the top, ideas on status and an oppressive one-way relationship with nature and other human nature. The final result is a short Film, which aims to reproduce a feeling that has to do with sisterhood, togetherness, care, reciprocity, equality, and gratefulness; based on the utopic idea of interdependence and thinking the top as a transitional space.

    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I describe my method photographing for part of my MFA exhibition ’Girl, Unboxed*. I reflect on my background as a young handball athlete and what it means to work with a personal narrative. I also go into the process of involving a team of handbalI playing teenagers as well as the technical choices of camera and material.

    Alien, Alienated and Alienation2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I started to design my project through the lens of my own perceptions and

    understanding of alienation, as well as learning about alienation through the lens of artistic

    craft.

    In the project, I used the history of blue porcelain as a metaphor for my alienation. The

    study of blue porcelain’s visual elements including forms, patterns and colours painted a

    larger picture, where blue porcelain was wandering among different cultures and went

    through the evolution of people’s perception through different historical periods. Meanwhile

    it experienced deep alienation as well as meaningful development, which made blue porcelain itself a strong culture and symbol of many cultures. Alienation does not have to be a problem that needs to be healed; it could lead to positive results.

    Skapande och Förgänglighet: Resultatet av ett utforskande av arbetsmiljörisker, och psykologiska försvarsmekanismer i relation till en konstnärlig skapandeprocess.2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    What work environment do we encounter as artists? What can our bodies handle? In my artistic exploration, I have taken an interest in the risks we expose ourselves to in our work environment at Konstfack. Everyday life in the workshops brings many examples of the challenges our bodies face. We like to test new technologies, new materials, plastics, and chemicals with strange new properties to deal with. The body, the material, and the work environment have been central in my process, but perhaps above all the question of why we are so happy to ignore the risks we expose ourselves to. How do we deal with the knowledge of these threats on a psychological level? Through sculptural techniques and choice of materials, I have explored the airborne threat, a subject that leaves room for subjectivity. It is the idea of a threat, something abstract and invisible, sometimes tangible, sometimes not. What we choose to believe in can in some cases have a more significant effect than the actual material impact on our bodies. Something that has long been considered healing can suddenly be seen as harmful – a duality that I have expressed in my artistic exploration. The multifaceted experience of these threats has the ability to affect every part of our lives. To give an experience of control, and downplay the subconscious presence of the body's vulnerability we create new behavior patterns or change our entire perception of reality. But what happens if we come to terms with what moves in the subconscious? Can we internalize the knowledge of the body's vulnerability?
