    Organising of Space: about a orphanage in Tanzania2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In my BA project, I travelled to Tanzania with a MFS stipend and experienced humanitarian architecture up close - by following architectural group Asant Collective´s project in Tanzania: a new Children Centre for a small non-governmental organization called ECONEF. 

    I have worked with social questions / responsibilities regarding our role as interior architects in developing countries - often feeling like a anthropologist.

    In my design part, I have re-drawed the layout for ECONEF´s planned new orphanage after a analyse of the existing orphanage, culture and traditions.

    Responding through design2018In: Semotics of Hybrid Natures: Anthropogenic Ecosystems, Multimodalities, Transformed Umwelts / [ed] Silver Rattasepp, Tartu, Estonia, 2018, p. 14-15Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The presentation “Responding through design” addresses the use of the ecological notion of response diversity (Elmqvist Et al. 2003) as a frame to develop naturecultures. It does so by focusing on the practice of design, making explicit the type of performativity that design proposals could enact by devising complementary responses designed to support the life of specific beings in specific ecosystems. The talk elaborates upon examples from the project Dispersal machines, part of my postdoctoral research entitled Symbiotic tactics and financed by the Swedish Research Council (2013-2016). Dispersal machines proposes two complementary artificial systems that attempt to minimise the damages by a moth (Spodoptera frugiperda) on crops (corn and soy predominantly) in the agroecosystems of Córdoba, Argentina. The proposals attempt to biologically control this species by interventions that disseminate and/or host species that predate or parasitize the moth at different stages of its life cycle: a diurnal response, based on the dissemination of parasitized eggs of the moth by a tiny wasp (Telenomus remus), as well as a nocturnal response, based on the placement of bat refuges that feed on the adult moth.

     

    Interspecies care demands response-ability (Haraway 2016); the challenges being the development of a practice of design tuned to respond dynamically to multi-scalar phenomena and multi-species abilities. Addressing the “semiotics of hybrid natures”, the presentation reflects upon “abilities to respond” and the notion of semethic interaction (Hoffmeyer 2008) as it relates to the more general semiotic term, semiosphere. With this context in mind, it addresses pattern-making through design, co-evolutionary possibilities, and the human capacity to respond through design, and design as a form of response.

    Design & Narration?: -A research exploring how design and narration, collectively, work as a means to expand the uncharted field of design pedagogy2011Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

    This text process a design pedagogical research executed in Arvidsjaur during the fall of 2011. The formulation of questions that this study circles around regards how combining design and narration can be used in the development of design pedagogy. Also scrutinized, how did the formulation of this research affect the outcome and what means, in addition their attendance, did the people who partook contribute with?   

    The purpose is to find a pedagogic angle that moves focus away from the finished product and onto other aspects of the design process. To clarify, by investigating how narration adapts as a tool during a design process this research seek to enlighten ways that we comprehend, and make use of, our surroundings while working towards a common - designed - goal. What comes about when gathering a group of people and asking them to represent Arvidsjaur by designing a cup?

    The material used emanates from observations, narratives, images and finished artifacts – all deriving from a set of workshops held in the city of Arvidsjaur. To partake in the workshops was voluntary and the invite began with the question/statement: Design and narration? An ethnographically inspired method preceded the structure of the study and hence made it impossible to foreordain what would occur before arriving in Arvidsjaur. By placing the gathered material and observations along with a set of selected theories, such as sociocultural learning and social constructionism, I wish to enlighten and point out qualities, along with weaknesses, that this study occupies. 

    Beyond a written contribution, and the work on the field, the research resulted in a number of designed cups. These cups were photographed, processed, and depicted in three different ways – as posters and as a series of photographs. These images were on display during an exhibition at Konstfack in December 2011. My contribution to the exhibition was meant as a continuation on questions regarding design and narration. What happens e.g. with an item when it is displayed in this matter? When moved from one context to another? It is thus a way to stress the importance of questioning and challenge the way we apprehend our surroundings and what we chose to enlighten or leave out – a comment on a stirring development. I did not wish to explain to the viewer what the cups narrate; they were made to reveal something on their own. How they ultimately are received becomes yet another way of pointing out that how we experience something is dependent on a variety of circumstances.

    Future of Bio-Product Design: EXPLORING THE IMPACT OF BIOMATERIALS AND BIOPROCESSES ON FUTURE PRODUCT DESIGN2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bio-based products is a hot topic for the future. The industry needs new materials and production methods. This project is looking at the consequences for industrial design when creating bio-products. The time perspective of the project is 30 years ahead. A future scenario was created based on extensive trendspotting research. The result is a product together with new design tools.

    This salt and pepper shaker is grown with the use of bacteria that creates a biofilm. The bacteria are killed after the process and the biofilm remains. This growth process allow variation and give unique results every time, which opens up for an emotional bond to the product. Also if it breaks, it can heal itself, and you can keep on using your favorite shaker.

    The result of the project is a proposal of how to deal with randomness in the design process and industrial production.

    SYN-TES 2010-2011 Interdisciplinära studier om färg – ljus – rum2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det tvärvetenskapliga projektet SYN-TES. Människa, färg och ljus. Syntetisering för ett sammanhållet kunskapsfält har pågått på Konstfack under 2010-2011, med finansiering från KK-stiftelsen (ref. nr 2009/0195). Projektet har omfattat ett femtontal nordiska färg- och ljusspecialister från företag och olika akademiska discipliner. Alla deltagarna har dessutom arbetat med annan forskning och/eller utvecklingsarbete om ljus- och/ eller färgfrågor. I arbetet med SYN-TES har gruppen regelbundet hållit interna semina- rier där olika kunskapstraditioner kunde närmas varandra och där gruppen gemensamt formulerade grunderna för ett sammanhållet kunskapsfält som innefattar både färg och ljus. I anslutning till detta har det genomförs ett antal under- eller sidoprojekt kring avgränsade frågeställningar, delvis med finansiering från Energimyndigheten (projekt nr 32266-1 och 34528-1)

    Det övergipande syftet var att skapa förutsättningarna för ett sammanhållet kunskapsfält som innefattar både färg och ljus, ur ett mänskligt perspektiv. I denna rapport sammanfattar vi huvuddragen i denna ”syntetisering”, med tonvikt på frågeställningar och processer. De mer konkreta resultaten av seminarier och subprojekt redovisas i en serie separata rapporter.

    Dressed in a Present from the Past: The Transfers and Transformations of a Swedish Bridal Crown in the United States2010In: Culture Unbound : Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 2, p. 695-717Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ever since the emigration from the Nordic countries the Old world and the New world have maintained an exchange of ideas, customs, and material culture. This cultural heritage consists of more than remnants of the past. Drawing on theories of material culture and performance this article highlights the role of gifts in mate-rializing relationships between individuals, families and organizations in the wake of migration. First, I build on a suggested coinage of the term heritage gifts as a way of materializing relationships. Thereafter, I map out the numerous roles which a Swedish bridal crown play in the United States: as museum object, object of display and loaned to families for wedding ceremonies in America. The trans-fers and transformations of the bridal crown enhances a drama of a migration her-itage. This dynamic drama brings together kin in Sweden and America and maps specific locations into a flexible space via the trajectory of crown-clad female bodies.

    Bildning för vår tids bibliotek - till nytta för vår tids studenter?2014In: NU2014: Umeå 8-10 oktober: abstracts, 2014, p. 184-184Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I diskussioner kring den högre utbildningens syfte ställs ibland bildningsideal mot vad som kan kallas ett nyttoideal. Sverige förenade studentkårer (SFS) väljer att knyta bildning till sin definition av en användbar utbildning där bildning utgör en "en central och oersättlig del", men inte förknippas med direkt nytta. Tillgång tillbiblioteksverksamhet är en förutsättning för utbildning. Bibliotek och bildning hör ihop och begreppet bildning nämns till exempel i nya bibliotekslagen: "Biblioteken i det allmänna biblioteksväsendet ska främja litteraturens ställning och intresset för bildning, upplysning, utbildning, och forskning och kulturell verksamhet i övrigt." Hur kan verksamheten vid biblioteken inom högre utbildning relatera till bildning och nytta på ett relevant sätt för dagens studenter? Traditionellt förknippas bibliotek med ett närmast absolut kunskapsbegrepp på så sätt att biblioteken har haft som uppgift att organisera och systematisera den samlade kunskapen i form av dokument. Biblioteken har också förknippats med urval och kvalitetskontroll och ett kanonbegrepp ligger nära till hands - läser man rätt böcker blir man bildad. Denna typ av lärdomsbildning kan anses bidra till personligutveckling och kulturell status, men sätts inte sällan i motsats till nytta. I en tid där informationsflödet är konstant och dokumentstrukturer löses upp är detta bildningsbegreppet inte längre gångbart. Traditionella publiceringsformer har visserligen flyttats över till den digitala miljön, men där existerar de tillsammans med nyare och snabbare kommunikationskanaler och gränserna blir alltmer otydliga. Filosofen Bengt Kristensson Uggla beskriver denna trend: "Det globala informationssystemet medför en horisontalisering av all kunskap, med konsekvensen att värderings- och kunskapshierarkier vittrar bort så att kunskapen i allt högre grad kommer till oss osorterad". Själva grundvalarna för biblioteksverksamhet har förändrats. Kristensson Uggla förespråkar ett bildningsbegrepp där tolkningsförmåga som innefattar selektion, värdering, meningsbildning och användning är en förutsättning i ett nytt informationslandskap. Ett sådant perspektiv på bildning förutsätter en aktiv pedagogisk roll för biblioteken i högre utbildning. Syftet med detta rundabordssamtal är att diskutera detta bildningsbegrepp utifrån ett högskolepedagogiskt perspektiv. Hur kan det tillämpas på högskolebibliotekens verksamhet? Kan den pedagogiska verksamheten utvecklas av att fokus sätts på studenternas tolkningsförmåga och begreppen selektion, värdering, meningsbildning och användning? Kan detta bildningsperspektiv vara till nytta förstudenterna i deras framtida arbetsliv?

    Like or dislike: aesthetic judgements on textile patterns2013In: Proceedings from the 2nd International Conference for Design Education Researchers, 14-17 May 2013, Oslo, Norway / [ed] Janne Beate Reitan, Peter Lloyd, Erik Bohemia, Liv Merete Nielsen Ingvild Digranes and Eva Lutnaes, 2013, p. 731-742Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In different areas of handicraft and textile production, teachers, researchers, purchasers and others have to judge products based on different factors such as function, aesthetics, taste and so on. The whole process of designing – from ideas and visions to finished product – includes aesthetic judgements: In the first planning phase, several sketches are made that can later be changed, adjusted and further developed. When a product is finished, further judgements are needed: designers and artisans evaluate the result of their efforts, teachers judge the works of pupils or students and purchasers or consumers judge the suitability of the textile based on their particular needs. Because different persons make different choices when making or buying a textile product, it is interesting to study people’s experiences of fabrics as well as their reasons for making certain aesthetic judgments. This article presents a study of judgments and values expressed when designed printed fabrics were displayed for designers, teachers of textile crafts, consumers and schoolchildren. The present study shows that subjects make their judgements on the basis of formal, functional, cultural and emotional contents. These aspects should therefore be in focus in design work and design education.

    ”My father once picked a liverleaf and gave it to me. I was sad because it was a protected flower. I wanted to explain that to my father but I didn’t know how. Then I understood: it was this that made me sad, and not because I was some sort of nature activist when I was 6. I’d learned about the right of public access at nursery school, and my father hadn’t.”

    Personal stories about Sweden based on various aspects of being Swedish in a globalized time. A time where different perspectives meet and hybrid identities arise, at the same time as the need for a national identity seems to be growing stronger. In my work I and a number of invited guests with widely different backgrounds, try to formulate and reformulate the concept of Swedishness. Can we through telling other stories, expand the tale of Sweden and make it contain greater variations?

    THE REACH2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We walk through most of our everyday life without constantly thinking of what we are doing in that exact moment. I mean, that would be absolutely exhausting. Left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot. Hand to cup, grab, lift and onwards to the mouth. But what is interesting is that we refer to these actions and doings as nothing. They seem to have no value to us at all. What have you been doing today? Nah, nothing. Nothing at all. As well in our commute to work. Sometimes we step onto a bus or train and when we take off our coat at work we almost don’t even know what happened between point a and point b. Does it seem familiar?  My work has come to evolve around our everyday routines. How in those moments of unconscious nothingness we actually do so many things and most of all encouter so many objects. When we walk through a door, pick up a tool, open a box, we grab a handle and the bodily encounter is made through the hand. I’ve come to explore how it seems that the hand has its own life when we are in this state. How the objects in our everyday call for the hand, directs the hand, makes a choreography for the hand. I have recorded the hands movement in different media in order to get a new view of something familiar and try to find new realities to what we think we know.  What happens when the hand and a handle meet in a routine? What does it actually look like? Why is it important to become aware of?  I believe by changing our attitude to things in our environment, we can also change the attitude to people around us. Changing perspectives on the most ordinary everyday chores can generate new thoughts about the commonplace and like the butterfly effect also create a more permissive society.

    Re-Story: The O.T.M.I* project*O.T.M.I = Obsolete Technical Mechanical Item2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The core question in this master thesis is: What happens to the essence of an object when it becomes out of date and is no longer in use? I am addressing the sense of dignity in once meticulously designed technical/mechanical items that now has become obsolete. The intention has been to investigate how to give new meaning to obsolete items and find new eligibility for their existence. 

    The investigation was conducted through the development of a method: collection, analysis, deconstruction, investigation and resurrection of a number of O.T.M.I. (Obsolete Technical Mechanical Items).  

    The resurrection process consisted of the (re-)writing of the objects’ narratives. These stories along with the objects’ parts, spaces and sounds created a frame for a scenography, a soundtrack and characters to act in a film to tell the story.

    As interior designers we have the opportunity to transform space and fill it with stories. Imagination is an important tool: We benefit from having the ability to imagine, for instance, how different surfaces will reflect sound and light. Our imagination is highly visual. So I have transformed my imaginary world of Obsolete Technical Mechanical Items to visual and audial elements that support the content and values of a story through researching the objects, finding how to clarify and support the story. The Re-Story.

    Colour and Light in Design: - Levels of experiencing colour and light2013In: Proceedings from the 2nd International Conference for Design Education Researchers, 14-17 May 2013, Oslo, Norway / [ed] Janne Beate Reitan, Peter Lloyd, Erik Bohemia, Liv Merete Nielsen Ingvild Digranes and Eva Lutnæs, 2013, p. 743-752Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    : In our designed culture, every environment, object and picture is analyzed from the viewpoint of colour and light. Colour and light play an important role in social life and culture. This paper springs from an epistemological project about concept formation in the field of colour and light. Based on own observations and scientific and scholarly references it presents a graphic model describing possible constituent relations between colour and light experiences. Design is the art of using knowledge – implicit or explicit – about how humans perceive, experience, and relate to the world around. In design all senses are involved, but when dealing with colour and light we can confine ourselves to vision; designers must understand the conditions of visual perception. Human experience of colour and light has many sources; the given cultural context (conventional meanings of colour and light), the direct experience of the world around (colour and light expressions) and the basic perceptual functions (formal aspects of colour and light). There is need for distinct concepts and concise approaches to understand coherence of aesthetic and functional expressions. Design education calls for coherent and well defined structures that can be used to describe connections and distinctions between experiences of different kinds.

    Traditions and Transformation2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Traditions that shape our identity and beliefs are constantly undergoing transformation through our interactions with new cultures. At the same time, these interactions enhance our awareness of where we come from, and where we truly belong. In this thesis I investigate the history of jewellery in India through a contemporary perspective and interpretation. My project narrates my transformative journey from the rich tapestry of Indian traditions towards the contemporary western culture. The subject of Indian jewellery is vast and complex, the enquiry is just the beginning of the journey. Therefore, my goal is to discover linkages between the age-old traditions and the fast-changing world of today. I create a dialogue between traditional, ritualistic Indian jewellery and an irreverent choice of materials and methods that have been conceived from my experiences in the West. Through this dialog, I explore the push and pull between traditional ethos and modern sensibilities, and the transformation it engenders.

    Teckningsrevolt: Förändringsprocesser i teckningsundervisning med 68-vågen på Konstfack2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study takes its starting point in a shift identified at the Teacher Institute of Drawing (Teckningslärarinstitutet - TI) within the Konstfack School of arts and crafts in Stockholm at the time of the wave of radicalism that took place in about 1968. Changes in the drawing instruction at TI have been examined through interviews with former students at the institute, student fanzines and archive materials relating to the restructuring of the Konstfack School during the 1960s. Here, it emerges that the curriculum previously focused largely on aspects of form in the mastery of tools used to produce images. After 1968, however, the drawing education became substantially more theoretical. It came to focus more on discussing pictures and images and understanding the societal functions of drawing, which were emphasized more than students’ own creative work. During the period studied, subject categories were also restructured, with new constellations arising and the boundaries between different media becoming more diffuse. Ingredients in these changes included photographic media, analyses of mass media and a critical questioning of an autonomous artistic domain. A disrupted balance in power relations at the school, with students questioning established norms, contributed to this new orientation. 

    In a creative process, accompanying the research, I have engaged in practices of picturemaking no longer included in the training at the current Department of Visual Arts and Sloyd Education at Konstfack, evolved from the former Teacher Institute of Drawing. This work could be described as a form of experimental archaeology, in which I have reflected on how practices might tread new paths when excluded from a previous context. I tested a method of free expression in painting and practised life drawing. I produced a large sculpture, to afford space for creating with physical materials. I also investigated drawing as a basis for other forms of pictorial expression, such as sculpture. The experience of this process enhanced my understanding, contributing an independent comment on the theoretical and historical investigation. The result is a monument in the form of an installation, constituting a tribute to the historical profession of drawing teacheresses.

    Att ställa till med en scen2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My degree project begins with questions formulated around the ability, or inability to take and make space in the city and how taking place can create change.

    By staging (making a scene) using the strategies, taking care, being present, and taking space, I want to explore, make visible and set in motion shared place-making in our common rooms.

    I have started in seemingly* abandoned places and in temporary rooms: Because the seemingly abandoned only appears to be unused and can, with a little imagination, be made into what is needed for the moment. Because traces that are left behind become mysteries, possible futures and dreams of the adventures of others. Because the desire to take the stage sometimes requires moments of empty stages. Because the act of sharing also means taking turns.

    With seemingly abandoned I mean places that sometimes appear unused, but are not. Places with traces of past activity and inspiration to future happenings.

    We have received borders not to move2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Institutions of power exert their control over us, sometimes in very obvious and grand ways, but also often in far more insidious and covert ways. This paper looks at forms of control, specifically relating to movement of individuals and populations, that are exerted on the body, internalised by the body and subsequently expressed through the body. It seeks to offer insight into the ramifications of such strategies of control on the physical and social body, for example manufacturing of shame, the other, illegality, and the body as a thing.

    With the phenomenon of the border line as a starting point, this paper approaches the human ramifications of western power structures on the body through Foucault's notion of 'governmentality', and the employment of the term, (reflecting the artistic approach to the nature of this research paper), the illegal body.

    From developments in certain forms power structures and obedience throughout western history to nationalist constructions, an analysis and critique some of the normative ways of thinking about space and place in relation to the body and identity is offered. Produced in conjunction with the practical body of work of the same title (a very conscious appropriation of the title of Barabara Kruger's work 'We Have Received Orders Not To Move', which deals with power and gender), theoretical and philosophical aspects as they fed into choices of formal aspects of the making process, and vice versa, are discussed.

    What is asserted is that systems and technologies of control are very effective at deeply embedding normative ideologies into the body, in essence ideologies become hardwired into the response systems of the body This is particularly concerning when we consider that once again, national security and border protection are two of the main concerns of governments.

    Mangan lockar sina läsare till medskapande: etnografisk undersökning av en ungdomskultur2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen syftar till att undersöka ungdomars reception av fenomenet manga/anime på ett etnografiskt arbetssätt, avgränsat med begreppet ungdomskultur. Fokus ligger på två mangayttringar som närmast berör ungdomar: shōjo för flickor och shōnen för pojkar. Resultatet redovisas i tre olika teman: Estetik/Stil, Makt/Könsroller och Berättelser/Myter,vilka tolkas med hjälp av ett raster på textuell, kontextuell och sociohistorisk nivå.Undersökningen är kvalitativ med sju ungdomar som informanter, och empirin består avfältanteckningar, fotodokumentation och intervjuer.Ungdomarnas fascination av mangaserier kan delvis förklaras med att de ritas i ett utstuderat ”filmiskt” maner, med snabba bildväxlingar och många olika bildvinklar, och delvis med att läsaren kan följa protagonistens utveckling under många år, parallellt med sin egen utveckling till ett vuxnare jag. Kulturyttringen uppmuntrar även till eget medskapande och egenamatörmanga-produktion, vilket medför att många ungdomar publicerar sitt eget material,både i pappersform och på internet. Detta gör fenomenet förhållandevis ohierarkiskt.Manga/anime-traditionen är ofta ironisk och lekfull, motiven i den tidiga sekventiellabildkonsten i Japan hämtades från nöjes- och teatervärlden, men under den flamsiga ytan döljsofta allvarliga resonemang. Berättartraditionen kan uppfattas utifrån tre olika modus: vardagligt, humoristiskt och poetiskt. Ungdomarna kan i postmodernistisk anda ta del av det främmande och egendomliga, men kan också; när de själva vill, stänga av och avskärma sigifrån det.Estetiken betecknas av eklekticism, brottstycken, lekfull inställning till form och konventionoch raserandet av hierarkiska traditionerna. Könsroller utmanas med crossdressing, och demanliga protagonisterna ritas ofta med påfallande feminina anletsdrag. Uppsatsen beskriverdetta med bakgrund av queerteoriska tankegångar, där en given norm ifrågasätts. Läsandet avserietidningar har nästan alltid betraktats nedlåtande, med någon form av moralpanik i sitt kölvatten. Detta kan betraktas som en reaktion mot en pågående modernisering. Resultatet av uppsatsen visar inte på någon större förändring i det traditionella könsrollstänkandet, men en viss omformulering pågår.

    ”It ain’t eazy being greazy in a world full of cleanliness and all that other madness.” – Method Man

    We all have hair on our bodies. And it is always under supervision.Hair is for instance found on our legs, genitals and faces and is largely removed, no matter the color, size and visibility. Societal norms about the hairless, civilized and attractive human puts many people in both time and money consuming situations where we pull, shock and burn ourselves. The beauty industry is working for you to continue with these behaviors, but have you ever wondered why you do it?

    My work tries to combine sustainable design with critical design. Thus, it examines what we do and why, but most of all, there is a critical investigation of the relationship it has to the future sustainable society that has created a balance between society, our environment and our economy. This project embraces our differences while it also demonstrates that the problem goes beyond the choice of environmentally friendly materials in products.

    Sustainability begins with us and our behaviors. Are you ready for change?

    I stort sett handlar det om likes: En studie i hur normer och beteendemönster ser ut och skapas för användandet av Instagram2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här examensarbetet handlar om ungdomar 16-19 år gamla och deras relation till sociala medier och då med fotoappen Instagram i fokus. Den bygger på en undersökning i två delar; en intervjudel med informanter för att se hur instagramdiskursen ser ut, hur de använder sig av appen, tolkar och tänker och en observationsdel där jag tagit del av samma informanters bilder på Instagram. Jag tittar på hur användaren formas av Instagram och hur Instagram formas av användaren, på vilket sätt informanterna förhåller sig till bildtexter, hashtags och om intervjudelen skiljer sig från den observerande delen. Kan man finna en större och djupare mening med detta populärkulturella tidsfördriv där vi förväntas publicera vardagsbilder eller hur används det? Jag vill i den här studien kartlägga de normer som formar ungdomar 16-19 som använder sig av Instagram, de mönster som finns för användandet och se det ur Image – Picturesynvinkel, där picture står för bilderna enskilt och image är helhetsbilden de ger tillsammans genom frågeställningen:

    Hur ser normer och mönster ut för användandet av Instagram bland gymnasieungdomar?

    Syftet med undersökningen är att bättre förstå vad vi gör med sociala medier och vad dem gör med oss. Vad gör Instagram med användarens självbild och de normer för hur en ska vara och leva, påverkas vi eller går det oss förbi precis som vi tenderar att scrolla förbi händelser och bilder på sociala medier? Skulle man kunna/är det lämpligt att interagera med Instagram i bildundervisning och i så fall på vilket sätt? Resultatet av undersökningen stämde inte alls överens med de tankar och föreställningar jag inledningsvis hade. Istället för att tala om parallella världar, dubbla identiteter med ett sociala medier-jag och ett IRL-jag så vittnade många av informanterna om att de inte kunde frångå sitt IRL-jag på sociala medier för att det då skulle uppfattas som avvikande och konstigt. Även om det finns ett beteendemönster som anses vara okej så får individuella spelregler utformas som att hålla en viss redigeringsstil eller inte gilla/like förrän tio stycken före gjort det, då försvinner nämligen namnen på de som gillat en viss Instagrambild och ersätts med ”11 likes”.

    Min undersökning gestaltades på Konstfacks vårutställning 2014 i ett brädspel baserat på det sociala spel som återfinns på sociala medier och Instagram. Spelet är konstruerat och framtaget tillsammans med två kurskamrater vars undersökningar behandlar närliggande områden.

    Josefhine Olsson Forsström – Onstage/Offstage, om representationer och tillhörigheter på kollisionskurs och Mia Widoff – Jag syns alltså finns jag! En studie i hur ungdomar kommunicerar på sociala medier och hur stor vikt de lägger vid bild- och skriftskapande i interaktion med andra.
