    ‘Nobody puts Baby in a corner’: A critical response to apartments and furniture designed based on modernistic ideals.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My study challenges the status quo that seems to exist in the design of modern apartments, which is heavily influenced by the modernistic movement that flourished in early 20th century. Modernists strived to create a just and equal society, by challenging the social order and the traditional hierarchical system. The architecture of the time reflected these ideals and ultimately resulted in simplistic and repetitive designs that often formed box like interiors with standardised furniture. Consequently, these designs are detached from the individualism of the inhabitants, forcing people to sit, sleep, dine and socialise in a predefined space in a prescribed manner.

    My project is an artistic intervention to the BOX - the soulless interior of modern apartments. My aim is to explore and imagine alternative ways of existing within the box and push the boundaries of how we conduct daily activities in the living space.

    How haptic attributes evoke intentionality and generates meaning2019In: Konstfack Research Week: 28 Jan. - 1 Feb. 2019, Stockholm: Konstfack , 2019, p. 12-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Haptica is an artistic research project in the field of aesthetics that explores practical and theoretical connections between haptic attributes of the hand (making), nose, mouth and throat (tasting) and body (inner presence). The project aims to interlace aesthetic reasoning from sculpture and design to culinary art that emphasises active exploration and intentional form- and taste- giving processes. Haptic perception engages sensory experiences mediated through skin and kinaesthetic system.

    The project started with researching how air flows through space and is perceived by subtle sensory receptors under our skin and hair follicles, proceeding to tactile touch of material and grasping of material and instruments used in the creative making and performative process. It then shifted the practical and theoretical models from external space and physical materials to internal airflow through breathing, smelling and tasting that connects with soma aesthetics and reflection through inner presence. The project is a collaboration with Mischa Billing and Annika Göran Rodell, Campus Grythyttan at the School of Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Meal Science, Örebro University.

    Integrating Sensitizing Labs in an Educational Design Process for Haptic Interaction2016In: FORMakademisk, ISSN 1890-9515, E-ISSN 1890-9515, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 1-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    New design methods for educating designers are needed to adapt the attributes of haptic interaction to fit the embodied experience of the users. This paper presents educationally framed aesthetic sensitizing labs: 1) a material-lab exploring the tactile and haptic structures of materials, 2) a vibrotactile-lab exploring actuators directly on the body and 3) a combined materials- and vibrotactile-lab embedded in materials. These labs were integrated in a design course that supports a non-linear design process for embodied explorative and experimental activities that feed into an emerging gestalt. A co-design process was developed in collaboration with researchers and users who developed positioning and communications systems for people with deafblindness. Conclusion: the labs helped to discern attributes of haptic interactions which supported designing scenarios and prototypes showing novel ways to understand and shape haptic interaction.

    Abstract [en]

    Oh, the good old metro stations! No matter how much we change, how much our society changes, they all look pretty much the same.

    We walk down the stairs, grab a coffee on the way, pass the gates, get to our platform and then we wait.

    But what if? What if it wasn’t like that? What if we could decide not to rush down to the platform, but instead enjoy the few minutes we have, before being drawn back to our daily life, in a nice, entertaining environment? A place for everyone to enjoy, not just those who own a metro card.

    After all, a station is still a public space, isn’t it?

    Solo: in the company of food2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Solo is an eating scene for a single person. The aim is to break today’s traditional way of eating alone at a restaurant through a series of instruments, arranged in a specific order, combined with a set menu. The eating experience is a melody, conducted by the instruments. By presenting different alternatives and choices along the way, there is also space for the guest to jam. To compose their own experience and make their own kind of music.

    To slow down, think, look, taste, feel, reflect, evaluate, act and compose. To activate and stimulate the hands, the heart and the brain , to really appreciate the situation and to give time for oneself through the act of eating. Solo — in the company of food

    Dryckeskärl i glas för individer med greppsvårigheter: Traditionellt glashantverk, industridesign, co- design.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet "Dryckeskärl i glas för individer med greppsvårigheter" - som jag sammanfattar i denna rapport - är uppbyggd i ett antal teman, vilka är, Traditionellt glashantverk, co-design och gestaltning.

     

    Mitt arbete grundar sig i att en stor del av de produkter ämnade för individer med greppsvårigheter idag, är enligt mig själv ofta tillverkade i motbjudande material som plast och silikon. Formerna på somliga hjälpmedelsartiklar kan ibland förmedla barnslighet eller att individen är fångad i sin “funktionsnedsättning” och därmed är i behov extra hjälp. Enligt mig själv och många andra har material och form stor betydelse för upplevelsen av dryck.

    Detta projekt är utfört i glas, dels för att det är sällan används i denna produktkategori, dels betraktas glas i de flesta kulturer som något rent, vackert och exklusivt. Mina förhoppningar är att designförslagen i detta projekt kan medverka både i funktion såsom förbättrad självkänsla hos mina intressenter.

    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.

    Abstract [sv]

    I en tid där möjligheten till att ständigt vara aktiv och där acceleration är lättare än motsatsen har jag valt att jobba med konceptet paus, tiden mellan aktiviteter, den stund då det inte handlar om att prestera eller att avancera. En övergripande fråga jag ställt är vad det är vi behöver paus ifrån och vad gör vi när vi tar paus. Jag har valt att jobba med kontoret som rumslig kontext, denna högborg för effektivitet och aktivitet. Jag har i mitt projekt skapat objekt som syftar till att främja närvaro och fokus på nuet. Jag vill med mitt projekt belysa vikten av att vara ledig och att vara närvarande vid ledighet. Jag har utforskat ämnet genom intervjuer och research inom psykologi och meditation.

    Pale Nordic Architecture: Why are our walls so white?2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim was to investigate the perception of whiteness in Nordic architecture and analyse the reasonsbehind the pale colour scheme in a public space context. The word pale was used alongsidewith white, since it gave broader possibilities to ponder over the topic. The geographical researcharea was framed to cover Sweden and Finland, although the search for underlying reasons extendedbeyond the borders of the North. Architecture was viewed as an entity, including both exteriors andinteriors. The focus was on reasoning around the question “why” to arouse professional discourseabout the often-unquestioned topic. Analysing the background of a commonly acknowledged phenomenonstrives to make architects more conscious of the background of their aesthetics so thatfuture decisions can be based on a more complex set of knowledge rather than leaning on tradition.Because of the wide demarcation of the research question, the project started with self-formulatedhypothesis, after which they were thoroughly analysed. The formulated pre-assumptions were, thatthe Nordic paleness is, firstly, a consequence of misinterpreted past architecture. Moreover, naturalcircumstances of the North, the symbolism connected to white and the tradition of canonisingmodernism were established as hypothesis. Lastly, architect education, combined with the tendencyof prototyping with white materials were assumed to endorse the pale colour scheme. The misinterpretations’possible implication in the perception of whiteness was also examined as a part of the research.Justification for the hypothesis was found, although broad framing meant that the referencematerial was splintered. Personal reflection was used as a means for cohesion. The paper includes aconcise artistic element in the form of an introductory poem to each chapter.

    Committed to Memory: Remembering and Responsibility in Visual Storytelling2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The graphic novel form can be a visual representation of how memory works, if we understand memory to be a composite of visual, semantic and emotional systems. The interplay between text and image – a non-linear, cumulative style of reading – creates a third narrative space that mimics the function of memory.

    Visual storytelling has the potential to superimpose a system onto concepts and ideas which are difficult, fantastical or simply intangible, and, by creating an emotional response in the reader, become a platform to investigate forgotten and whitewashed histories, and to revisit historical and contemporary trauma in a medium that allows for an empathetic and human understanding of an event.

    In times of political and social extremism, nostalgia and the rewriting of history into ideals creates a reality that lacks specificity. Memory becomes oversimplified, generalised and reduced. Visual storytelling can remind people of the specificity of reality and the importance of remembering, envisioning and articulating our lives and the lives of others. Through graphic novels Heart of Darkness, Scandorama and Terminal this paper will investigate nostalgia and false memory, revisit eugenic and colonial histories and explore the use of drawing to remember and memorialise contemporary victims of crimes.

    Urban nature center: The development of educational spaces and how they can interplay with nature in an urban context2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Educational spaces that interact with nature can give children in the city a start in experiencing the nature close to them. First hand experiences have the potential to influence and inspire children to continue learning about the environment that they are a part of.

    The Urban Nature Center aims to bring the concept of Nature School into the urban setting of Tantolunden in Stockholm city in order to invite the public to experience the urban nature. It creates a link to further explore the nature areas surrounding the city.

    By developing educational spaces that interplay with nature, focus has been on the relationship between inside and outside and on creating different levels of openness. Providing spaces for teaching both in groups and individually. The interior spaces either focus inwards on the activity taking place or outwards towards the nearby environment by filtering the view between inside and outside.

    Design responses as response diversity2017In: La Vie À L'Oeuvre / Life at Work: Nouvelles Écologies, Bioart, Biodesign / Towards New Ecologies / [ed] Perig Pitrou, Paris, 2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This talk addresses the use of the ecological notion of response diversity (Elmqvist Et al. 2003) as a frame to develop coupled natural-artificial systems. It does so through 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.

    Ecologizing, Decolonizing: An Artefactual Perspective2017In: NORDES 2017: DESIGN + POWER, 2017, Vol. 7Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I present a design project developed in Córdoba, Argentina, entitled ‘Spices-Species’. Through this case study, I discuss the possibility of designing using two decolonial strategies —"objectivity (or truth) in parenthesis" and " being where one does and thinks"— that can lead to delinking, on a micropolitical scale, from colonial social patterns as well as reconnecting humans with natural processes and beings to which they are detached by means of devices. The paper suggests that these decolonial strategies, combined with the performance of designed artefacts may help to acknowledge not only human diversity, but also the multiple and diverse nonhuman beings that conform and participate in different localities.

    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.

    I do so to be build my own relationship with a space of four walls to be able to work with such a space as a context for my work.

    Beyond the Surface: Bringing attention to the origin of food with the fish finger as canvas2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The many technological processes that products go through can make consumers less related to the systems behind them and their origins. The same thing happens to food. This project highlights the implications of a food system within the global scale of today’s mainstream economy and explores the possibilities for a product that originates from a more sustainable food system. Apart from re-designing a processed everyday food product, the aim of this study is to increase awareness of the pressure that the world’s fish stocks are suffering due to overfishing – an issue that is being aggravated by our current food system. For this reason fish fingers (aka fish sticks), which is a well known food product in Sweden, have been chosen as the primary focus in order to make a complex issue more tangible.

    By re-evaluating what a fish is, analysing current food systems and food products, making sensory explorations and collaborating with chefs, Havsbitar 1.0 and 2.0 (”Sea Bites” 1.0 and 2.0) have been developed. It is a series of fish fingers that has been designed for a desirable future scenario, where a resilient food system has been implemented.

    The aesthetics of Havsbitar intends to connect it to its ingredients and to the ecosystem it comes from, while maintaining the key characteristics of the fish finger as we know it today. The acceptance of the concept as a food product is an important variable to this project.

    The concept is placed in the field of Transition Design. Nevertheless, the design of Havsbitar 1.0 is a proposal that is intended to create possibilities for dialogue about an ideal industrialized commercial product. On the other hand, Havsbitar 2.0 follows a more discursive, critical angle towards the fact that fish fingers do not resemble fish, its main ingredient. Havsbitar 2.0 could then be placed in the field of Critical Food Design and Discursive Design.

    Mist: - en hypnotiserande omvandling av en vardagsprodukt2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt projekt handlar om att visa på ett alternativt sätt att tänka när vi designar elektronikprodukter. Det handlar om att designa för att hitta tid för vila och återhämtning. I en kultur som är besatt av effektivitet prioriteras ofta tiden för reflektion bort. Vi skapar ny teknik för att allt i samhället ska bli smidigare och gå snabbare. Jag har tittat närmare på elektronikprodukter vi har runt oss i vardagen, på deras estetik och användning. Jag har valt ut en produkt från den kategori; luftfuktaren. En produkt vars syfte är att portionera ut fukt till luften för att ge en bättre atmosfär. Jag kommer ge luftfuktaren nya värden utöver det rent praktiska den redan har idag. 

    Hur skulle en luftfuktare se ut och användas ifall den inte bara skänker fysisk återhämtning utan även gav mental återhämtning?

    I projektet arbetar jag med luftfuktarens mist som material. Med dess estetiska kvalitéer och rörelse vill jag skapa en upplevelse som förhoppningsvis kan ge betraktaren en stund av vila.

    Form & Formalia2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In my degree project, I investigate the interplay between content and form, with particular focus on the book, its role in today’s society, and the medium’s historical heritage and limitations. The project aims to illustrate the force and potential in form, materiality, and perception — in short, emotion — in relation to content.

    Today, emotion is often used as an instrument for evoking interest and motivation. We can see it being used in art, film, music, politics, activism, advertising, journalism. We rarely feel it in academic publication and scientific literature, but all the more often through modes of expression such as fiction and poetry.

    Experimental and feminist book design can be applied as a tool for mediating and enhancing emotion in text. Why has emotion and affect so seldom been deployed as methods in book design throughout history? Why have certain text formats been given prominence, ascribed with respect, legitimacy, and authority, while others have not? To problematise the conventional book format, and its lack of emotion, illustrates larger structural tensions in society between emotion and intelligence, affect and rationality, narrative and science.

    I mitt examensarbete “The Moving Generation” har jag genom illustration arbetat med en känslobaserad gestaltning om den rådande bostadskrisen och hur den påverkar människor i min ålder och generation. Jag har medvetet valt att fokusera på den emotionella aspekten av situationen, framför områden som statistik och politik. Arbetet har därför formats efter frågor om vad det innebär att vara andrahandshyresgäst under många år, såväl fysiskt som psykologiskt, och hur dessa upplevelser påverkar ens vardag och självuppfattning.

    The Self: Towards A Method for Queering Death: An Identity Testament2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    “The Self: Towards A Method for Queering death” is an identity testament, a speculative method for designing the space of your own funeral before you die. It is a format to create a fair memorial of a person’s identity that does not feel welcome or fits in the current formats of burial ceremonies we have in Sweden today, usually connected to Christianity or other religious traditions. Even the secular burial traditions of Sweden today have a very clear traditional format and aesthetic that can be intimidating to a lot of members of society. “The Self” is also a method to relegate the power of narrative to whom it belongs.  “The Self “is executed through this thesis, a sacred document, a spatial installation and a film, showing a possible scenario of a burial ceremony as a result of the method of the identity testament.

    This thesis demonstrates and problematizes the secular burial traditions in Sweden and how the common rituals are still based on the norms of Christianity, heteronormativity and traditional values, and why this is oppressing a lot of individuals in society. It does so by using a speculative method of an identity testament, which gives every human the right to own the narrative about their persona and who they were to the afterlife. It also problematizes the hierarchies and norms in society of what “family” means, and how consanguinity is valued by state and law. The term “queer” or “queering” is used in multiple ways, both as an adjective (being queer, a queer community, a queer sexual identity) but also as a verb or an adverb, as in the method used by the Queer Death Studies Network. The content of this thesis consists of texts, pictures, research in form of written sources and interviews, queer theory, descriptive design methods and descriptions of a sculptural exploration and spatial installation as well as a motion picture. The thesis asks and answers questions such as: How could a new type of burial ceremony - based on our secular beliefs in contemporary Sweden – look, feel and be arranged to be more connected to what we can relate as religion today? Is it possible to create an organized system to collect information about a person´s identity to be used as a formal ground to create a fair burial ceremony after the person’s death?

    The analysis focuses upon speculative ideas about what could happen if every person had a right to state a will for their intangible possessions and assets as well as their physical ones. The thesis also goes through multiple examples of cases of queer deaths where there have been strong needs to arrange an alternative funeral to feel safe and comfortable. Finally, the thesis reflects upon how this method could be used and if it really could be applied to society, and if so, who would be able to use it?

    Elastic Interactions & Performing Objects: Methods for Embedding Technology Playfulness into Interactive Objects2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis seeks to outline methods that explore interaction when the material object takes the role as playful provocateur. The process describes how simple, classic toys provide the guiding inspiration for prototypes. Combining the qualities of elastic freedom and surprising movement with simple mechanical input for expressive transformative form. The performative aspects of this movement are explored and described in workshops with contemporary circus artists and industrial designers, with the aim of understanding how expressive and playful behaviour can inspire the design of an interactive playful object. Finally, a series of provocative and animated latex objects use elastic movement and ambiguous bodily aesthetic to engage an audience in a playful and dialogue between human and machine. Ultimately, this thesis defines some basic principles and methods for making expressive, and robust moving objects, capable of provoking new interactive experiences. The research concludes with the suggestion that designers should look to the performing arts as a context that allows provocative new interactive experiences and a space for them to be tested on the their merits of expression.

    Stå upp(rätt) för en tryggare förlossning: Design för uppmaning till rörelsefrihet i modern förlossningsvård.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    “Maternity care needs to be comprised of emotional support and reassuring nursing practices, even more so than it does today.”

    This quotation, from the book Trygg förlossning (2017), has been a big influence in my degree project. Today, it is regarded as safe to give birth in Sweden with maternal and child mortality being amongst the lowest in the world. Despite this, many suffer from a fear of childbirth.

    Studies from Socialstyrelsen, amongst others, show that a back-lying position during childbirth is disadvantageous for the mother and child. If the mother moves and has an upright position, the perceived pain may decrease as the release of endorphins increases. Despite this, most people continue use a back-lying position during childbirth.

    There is obviously a gap between medical knowledge and childbirth practice. Therefore, I have investigated existing aids in maternity care, many of which are not developed for childbirth, but borrowed from other healthcare departments.

    I have developed a design proposal that will encourage an upright childbirth position for a safer delivery.

    The New Man and the Sea: Om hur design kan ändra vår attityd gentemot havet. Genom att bryta ytan och visa på en värld där vi lever med havet och inte av havet.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Havet - allt som lever på jorden behöver havet.

    Havet är källan, där liv skapades. Vi människor

    är inget undantag. Men vi har skapat ett

    ohållbart beroende till havet. Det tar upp en

    fjärdedel av all den koldioxid vi människor

    producerar, och näst intill all värme alstrad av

    växthuseffekten. På ytan ser kanske havet ut

    att må bra. Men i själen mår det dåligt.

    Hur kan design ändra vår attityd gentemot

    havet?

    Vad händer om vi bryter ytan mellan havet och

    människan? Hur skulle produkter, i en värld vår

    vi ger havet och dess invånare den respekt de

    förtjänar, se ut? Om vi skulle leva med och inte

    av havet?

    Mitt arbete utspelar sig i ett scenario där vi har

    förstått vårt behov av havet och där vi värnar

    om det. Där havet har en framstående roll och

    människan visar det respekt. För att beskriva

    det scenariot presenterar jag fiskredskap –

    redskap som gynnar fiskens liv och miljö. Detta

    genom att anspela på aktiviteten av att håva

    och meta och men med redskap vars grundläggande

    funktion är vänd från att ta en fisks

    liv till att istället ge den förutsättningar för ett

    friskare liv.

    FEMME: extinct stereotypes2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My research is about stereotypes of women. Responding to scepticism towardsfeminist movements, my degree project aims to challenge the power structure of today’s Western society. How does visual communication play a big role in creating and/or reproducing inequalities? I have created a retro-futuristic exhibition, placed in an imaginary museum. In a utopian world based in 2050, the exhibition femme: extinct stereotypes, aims to show, explain and deconstruct how women were portrayed around 2020; how society and (pop)culture were deforming humans into stereotypical women.I have created a speculative scenario through different objects and artifacts displaying the expectations and instructions on how women should or should not behave. By showcasing the past and its conventions, this retro-futuristic exhibition questions their normality and rationality.

    Naturligt dagsljus2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagsljus handlar om en rytm, en förändring under dygnet och under året, en återkommande rörelse. En naturlig rörelse som får oss att må bra och något som vi alla behöver!

    I mitt projekt utforskar jag samspelet mellan ljus och mörker, rörelse och rytm. Jag vill upptäcka lösningar som ger en större och annorlunda upplevelse än det förväntade. Jag vill tillåta ljuset att få vara den tillgång det faktiskt är.

    Vad händer med rummet och med oss människor när dagsljuset sätts i centrum? När ljuset och skuggorna tillåts leka med den rumsliga aktiviteten? När gestaltningen får komma inifrån och ut?

    Mediating objects: physical objects in therapy sessions together with childern2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this work has been to explore if objects can strengthen communication between psychologists and children in therapy. Can objects together with tactility as a tool help us to find and put words to feelings and episodes in our lives? I have explored this by interviewing three psychologists on several occasions who work with children. I have planned and implemented a three-day workshop with four children in the age of 7. Working in 3D as a method of sketching and testing has been an important part of the process.The work resulted in a tactile material consisting of 18 objects that have different material qualities. During tests the material has been helpful in order tostart conversation and getting help describing emotions. My hope is that this material will continued to be tested and developed.

    .To Be Continued: - Ett utforskande av elektroniska produkter och dess möjligheter till återvinning.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I projektet .To Be Continued undersöker och visar jag exempel på hur jag som blivande industridesigner kan underlätta materialåtervinningen av elektroniska produkter. Plast som material står i fokus i projektet . Den övergripande idén är att utveckla och formge exemplen på smarta metoder och lösningar för sammansättning och nedmontering av elektroniska produkter.

    Det övergripande syftet är att framställa ett designförslag som, på grund av hur den är sammansatt, ska kunna främja materialåtervinning och på så sätt kunna ingå i en cirkulär ekonomi. För att presentera tydliga förslag på sammansättningar av elektroniska produkter har jag valt att formge en kaffemaskin, som alltså är framarbetad utifrån de metoder och lösningar som utvecklats i detta projekt. Designförslaget, som presenteras i texten, är en kaffemaskin. Kaffemaskinen är uppbyggd med en grundstruktur där komponenterna staplas på varandra och som tillsammans bildar både formen på insida och utsida av kaffemaskinen.

    En kropp av vatten: En studie mellan kropp, vatten och simhallens programmerade arkitektur2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I mötet mellan luft, kropp och vatten uppstår någonting. Vattnets omfamning av kroppen skapar ett avbrott från omgivningen och endast nuet är närvarande. Tiden saktar ner, kroppen saktar ner. En paus uppstår, en paus från de ständigt gnagande kraven. 

    I mitt projekt har jag undersökt och förvaltat kvalitéerna som jag upplever finns i kroppens möte med vatten. Som före detta tävlingssimmare tar jag avstamp i samhällets tankar om hygien och renlighet, och rör mig i de kommunala badhusen där ritualen av renlighet utförs i gränslandet mellan offentligt och privat. Jag undersöker vattnet som omfamnar kroppen och arkitekturen som omsluter vattnet och försöker genom min praktik att förvalta dess kvalitéer.

    Abstract [en]

    My master's project is a graphic novel with the title You are not here. It touches upon topics such as identity, duality, loneliness and twinship. The narrative is built up in a fragmented structure, where glimpses of memories are alternated with fantasies, where the image is the primary focus. At the core of this story are the many conflicting emotions that are present in family relations and in particular between siblings.

    Abstract [en]

    Never Alone: Picture Book into VR

    I have studied the picture book and tried to develop a new narrative form that invites the reader to enter a deeper dimension while also giving the picture book a chance to come to “life” in a physical way. I have done this by recreating a children’s book, which I illustrated and wrote in collaboration with Dr. Heather Briscoe, into a VR experience.

    By bringing in my watercolour illustrations from the picture book, I explore the contrast between the analogue two-dimensional and the digital three-dimensional through the theme “Relationship to nature”. The narrative is about moments from a child’s life and the family ties that introduce nature’s cycles through timeless wisdom.
