    Utopia - dystopia: documentation of the thesis Utopia/dystopia2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I will start my thesis project with an analyse of current innovations in technology and new materials to find out what possible potential they may offer for new design solutions. The focus will be on inventions of disruptive technologies of the past and the present and how they change our way of life. An interesting point is to draw conclusions from how the consequences of these technological milestones impact our everyday life. An example is the influence of the internet (in the bigger and the smaller scale): it changed our way to purchase goods, to find a partner and to get e-services.

    In an experimental way I will build up scenarios of a possible future based on this technological knowledge. The hypothetical utopias and dystopias will evoke new questions and theories. In the research phase I will among others illustrate classical and modern utopias and dystopias.

    I will try to capture the spirit and the trends of both, visionary scientists and designer/architects/ar-tists to describe fears and hopes of the future.

    Jag - undersökningar: arbeten 2009-20102010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag har gett mig ut på jakt, där min jaktmark är ett oändligt stort fält, och där jag förvisso vet att jag kommer att återvända hem utan byte. Men nog känner jag vittring, ibland en stank, av mitt innersta, som jag omringar med mina arbeten. Jag har valt att kalla mitt examensarbete för "Jag — undersökningar" av den enkla anledning som med all säkerhet framgår i namnet. Mitt arbete har under denna period endast haft en riktning, vilket har varit riktad in mot mig själv. Att ens spegel bild är falsk och spegelvänd, och att man som rena narcissister endast ser sig själv genom andra är tankar som har spökat i huvudet på mig under en period, - vad vet man om sig själv? och har därför blivit nyfiken på att undersöka hur man kan "se" sig själv på bästa sätt och när man känner mest som en människa. Texterna som ni kommer att läsa är mina reflektioner över läsningar av klassiska, måhända ålderdomliga, psykologiska teorier och begrepp. Jag ska genast passa på att, näst intill ursäkta mig för att jag ganska fritt använder mig av och tolka dessa begrepp genom en ganska begränsad kunskapsnivå. Här understryks alltså att jag inte är någon psykolog inte någon filosof heller för den delen, men är föralldel en konststudent. Så att använda mig av lite friare tyglar vad det gäller teoretiska läsningar måste ändå ses med vänligt bemötande, så länge ni inte ta mig på orden, förutom när det inte gäller mina arbeten som får sin chans till prövning om några veckor.

    Postfashion: En undersökning i 4 akter om hur man finner sin egen roll i modevärlden2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna processbeskrivning undersöker jag hur jag kan verka som en modedesigner som kan påverka och göra skillnad. Intresset för detta väcktes under ett tidigare projekt då jag i arbetet local relations funderade över hur de val man gör under en designprocess kan påverka samhället i stort. Min undersökning börjar med att jag tittar på andra kreativa personers praktiker för att se hur dem påverkar och gör skillnad, jag genomför också intervjuer med andra verksamma för att undersöka hur dem ser på designerrollen nu och i framtiden, för att sedan undersöka hur jag kan omvandla mina tankar till ett praktiskt arbete. Under resans gång kommer jag fram till att jag kan påverka genom att etablera en plattform utifrån vilken jag och andra kan uttrycka våra tankar om mode. Jag skapar därför ett fanzine vid namn Postfashion som handlar om mode och vars första nummer (som är det som visas på Vårutställningen) är ett samtal om mode och materialitet mellan mig och konstnären Jun O Cindy Calle.

    Through Looking Through Glass: A reserach into the im/material properties of transparent glass.2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Transparent glass has over years managed to infiltrate every part of modernsociety, changing both human behaviour and language. And yet it is moreinvisible than ever. This current status calls for a new perspective on glass.My work explores glass beyond the object. To understand the immaterialpotential of transparent glass, one must look beyond surface and object andinto and through the material. It is not about the object, but what happensthrough the object. With point of departure in handmade photographic glassfilters and photography, I have been researching the immaterial aspects and theambiguity of transparent glass and how these notions can mediate absenceand presence.

    Abstract

    Aging - a journey thru time and space.

    To be a human being is to age. Time is the the dimension that makes us experience aging. We count the time with instruments that we attach to our bodies and in the space that we inhibit. We all have to live with the reality of death. We make strategies for how to postpone it. To be healthy and young is what we all want. That is what media tells us. To get old is something we try to avoid. We want to be young all our life. Old people are marginalized in our society. The stigma about the elderly is profound. We have to work against the ageism and look at eachother as individual human beings, not as representations of a cetrain age. Aging is the base of my research, the physical and psychological transformations that are happening over a lifetime. The cells in our bodies are set on a clock, they can not get reproduced forever.

    Time is the foundation of our history and our future. Time is what makes us old and young. In modern society we have organised the human beings in different age categories. You share the history events with your cohorts, but that doesn ́t say anything about you as a person or that you are alike. I think that is a big misstake. In our dreams we can be any age and any place. Sleep makes up a third of our life and it is the only time spent unaware of time. I wish that age was something we didn ́t use as a discriminating tool but unfortunately it is and also the most common one. I want to give a medal to those who doesn ́t give in to ageism.

    I have created a series of jewelry and corpus that I hope will inbody some questions about aging and ageism that I think we need to be aware of.

    Building Pieces: examensrapport2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    BUILDING PIECES

    I want the children to explore spatiality both high and low, in both open and closed structures. By reading the literature, comparing playhouses and huts, visiting preschools and following my own child, I have come to the conclusion that I do not want to create a given space, but instead design modules so the children can create their own spatiality to include stimulating their own creativity. There are too many things that we adult control and determine how it should be after what we think that children want, but with Building Pieces they can create their own space and build their own unique piece. This will give them not only creativity, activity and quality in playing but also an opportunity to think and learn about creating different spaces and architectural phenomenon. They can build on their own, with friends or adults. Nothing is right or wrong what they are building the most important thing is that they have the choice and opportunity to do so.

    PATTERN ATTACK: Mönster, reklam och egna uttryck i det offentliga rummet2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Under mina tre år på Konstfack har jag arbetat fram en värld av ickefigurativa mönster. I mitt examensarbete låter jag mönstren röra sig bortom skolans väggar och ut i det offentliga rummet. Genom att titta på hur reklamen idag tar plats i staden, på gator, väggar, tidningar och i kollektivtrafiken har jag hittat en för mig ny exponeringsyta.

    Mitt arbete består av två delar:

    I min processbeskrivning utforskar jag ickefigurativa mönsterbilders värde och roll i både konstnärliga och vetenskapliga sammanhang. Jag har också studerat hur reklamen tar plats i vårt offentliga rum. I mitt praktiska konstnärliga arbete har jag använt dessa teoretiska kunskaper tillsammans med en grupp tillvägagångssätt som jag gett samlingsnamnet PATTERN ATTACK.

    I mitt konstnärliga arbete presenterar jag hur olika PATTERN ATTACKs kan gå tillväga.

    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt arbete blir från en eko filosofisk synvinkel, och den konsthantverkbaserade scenografin som kommer skapas är baserad på vår/min syn på relation mellan naturen och människan. Många har tankar om just detta, det känns angeläget att kunna skapa en miljö där detta finns som en underton och att skapa en subtil miljö där jag jobbar med det taktila arbete, - evighetsarbeten, baserade på mitt eget formspråk. Jag vill utforska minatankar och undersöka hur jag kan betrakta och visa detta från olika vinklar.Ett ställe där natur och av människan skapade objekt samspelar, men där naturenblir styrd av objektens väggar, blommor kan tränga sig igenom kompakta materialsom asfalt och nerbrytningsprocessen är en oändlig del av detta.

    Med dessa flaskor vill jag visa hur naturen fångas in i ett bestämt element och lever av det som serveras den.

    Minnen från en parallell framtid2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We live in a fragile everyday. We make it even more fragile by the way we live it. There is no point in saying it with words any more, I've already tried that so many times that people have stopped listening. Maybe objects are a better way to start a conversation. In this project, that consists of this thesis and the physical body of work "Memories from a parallel future", I've been investigating what happens to us when the everyday falls apart and chaos erupts. With a starting point in the climate-crisis of the year 536, that led to the death of almost half of the Norse population, I've been speculating what would have happened today. Or maybe that it is actually happening today. Depletion of resources always results in violence. We know this, but still we keep nibbling at the earth, a little chunk at a time. What do we plan to do when there is nothing left?

    First green kit: ett inredningsprojekt för det offentliga uterummet2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The core concept in the project includes a proposal for urban public open space and green structure planning for the city of Nynäshamn.

    The work is concentrated to give form to the outdoor public space in order to increase the accessibility and availability of green areas and parks. The proposal aims to create valuable places focused on safety and comfort. But also to give form to public rooms for experences which the citizens voluntary seeks and participates if the physical environment is good. The identity of a city constitutes a great deal by its urban environment. Therefor design and architecture helps creating a uniform identity which can be reflected in the urban public spaces of the city.

    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I present the process, learnings and final results of my master project. The project focuses on the education Swedish for immigrants, SFI, and how design can play a role in improving the education to better meet the needs of the learners and become more of a step towards inclusion. 

    I identify two learner groups; the experienced and the novice learner, with different needs and prerequisites. During the project I develop a focus towards the novice learner and the problem I call the vicious circle. By this term I refer to that too big gaps between the learners former knowledge/experiences and the education results in lost motivation and self-esteem and many learners giving up or getting stuck in the education. 

    Throughout the project I use an iterative process, in three loops, where I involve the stakeholders in the development of my ideas through interviews, observations and colaborative workshops. 

    My final proposal is a the learning service “Matprat”, which invites the learners as co-creators of the education and puts their experiences and knowledge in the centre of learning.

    Examensprojektet Stay in touch handlar om närhet ochavstånd. Känsel och känslor. Samt om det vi inte kan sägatill varandra med ord.I takt med att dagens samhälle blir allt mer globaliserat ochmänniskor mer rörliga växer vårt behov av att kommunicerapå avstånd. Idag dominerar skriften och talet våra digitalamöten och vi går miste om ett viktigt kommunikationsmedel:kroppsspråket. Genom att introducera ett idagförsummat sinne, känseln, i digital kommunikation mellanmänniskor vill jag skapa starkare digitala möten ochupplevelse av närhet och samhörighet mellan människor.Genom marknadsundersökning, enkätunderssökning, övrigresearch samt användartester skapas en kunskapsgrund fördesignarbetet. Utifrån detta formuleras idéer, koncept ochlösningar på problem som upptäckts. Ett koncept väljs utoch formuleras ytterligare. Slutkonceptet utformas vidare iform, funktioner och haptiska egenskaper. Detta med hjälpav skissarbete i bland annat lera och glas samt embodiedstudies.Slutresultatet består av en fysisk produkt och ett virituelltinterface som tillsammans skapar en plattform för haptiskkommunikation. Fokus ligger på nära personligarelationer, kvalitativ och intuitiv kommunikation samtkänsla av närhet och närvaro.

    Gray areas: an exploration of metalwork in a contemporary context2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Ever since art and craft was separated there has been an ongoing schism between the two. The craft movement has been showed out of the fine art galleries and museums and has been left with country fairs and second handed rated galleries for exhibiting their work. This has created insecurity within the realm of craft. Left artists doubting themselves and the importance of their work and has led to an immensely boring debate which, for the past hundred years has debated whether craft and fine arts could or should be regarded as equal artistic manifestations. Maybe the importance no longer lies in trying to manically copy the fine art scene. But for once and for all, claim the space our work deserves in a contemporary environment, far away from rigid artistic boarders and a language that lacks all the right words. This essay investigates what it means to work in the periphery, in the gray areas of contemporary artistic metal making today and why the view on work in craft media is looked upon as handicraft and not art.

    Mind your manners2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By taking the example of tableware objects in connection with food- and eating-culture, I would like to investigate how manners, habits, moral-norms and moral-changes effect daily utility objects in my thesis MIND YOUR MANNERS. And also the other way round: how we are effected by these objects. The photographs STILL LIFE try to offer new perspectives on tableware objects and their use in everyday life. The user is not visible anymore and the objects themselves re-veal their independent existence. They let us draw conclusions about time and relations. Maybe the same object could tell different stories, depending on different circumstances. The table-installation PUT IT ON THE TABLE shows a circle of objects that fluctuate between archetypes and strange, unrelated new creations. What is the meaning of familiarity? To which objects can we relate and to which can we not? In a circle there is no hierarchy, there is no beginning nor ending.

    Building Block Creations2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    “Help me to carry!” “Okay! Where should it be?” “Just follow me!”E, soon to be 5 years old, lifts a building block at one end, while her father takes the other end and lets her show him where it should be placed. It is carefully put edge to edge next to another building block. Kid brother F, 2.5 years old, rolls a small toy car on another block.Building Block creations is a project with the aim to encourage spatial investigations through play. The project result are prototypes of four kinds of sprawled, large scale building blocks that can be combined: they can be rotated, set abreast or stacked on top of each other. As in architecture, several pieces together create a whole.

    The idea of Building Block Creations is to use building blocks as a pedagogical tool to encourage ideas and dialogue about spatiality and objects. By playing with the building blocks you relate objects to each other, challenge your view of what is possible to balance and, if you feel the need, use your imagination to create a definition of what you have built.

    The Architecture of Threads2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Most people might not reflect upon textiles as anything more than the soft material in our clothes. As a crafts practitioner, I gain knowledge of woven materials that go beyond that. The knowledge of weaving and materials is developing the ideas that form the concept of this project. From the tacit knowledge, derived from years of practically working with textile materials, an intellectual understanding of materials and the worlds they construct is growing.

    In this project, I decipher my own ideas of the woven structure in order to invite others to experience the universe within textiles. I look at the weave as a structure, built up by small particles in forms of threads. If seeing the weave from a distance, each repeated pattern can in turn be perceived as the smallest element. By seeing woven materials from more than one perspective, I believe that the understanding of the construction itself can develop. As this understanding grows, so does the ability to judge the quality of the material. In this line of thought, the tools used to reflect upon what materials are, how they are made and what they signify, becomes greater.

    To visualise the knowledge I have of the textile structures I make, I work with a waffle weave structure, together with a dyeing technique called Ikat. I also draw connections between the woven structure and that of a map – as a tool that humans use to understand their surroundings.

    The use of perspectives and scale is another tool that is used to widen our perception of the world around us. In order to create an experience of the universe within textiles and to invite others into that world, I draw parallels between the miniature scale of the woven material and larger, architectural structures.

    The final outcome of this project is a textile installation, consisting of three weavings that together form a larger construction. The construction is open for people to enter and experience. Inside the construction a smaller woven piece is presented as a map over the woven world. This weaving initially contains the same information as the large structure, but on a much smaller scale.

    Uncertainty Principle: a study of the uncertain relationship between people and object2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When we observe or use something, its property seems to change because of the way we establish relationships with it. Inspired by the Uncertainty Principle – a physical theory published by Heisenberg in the year of 1927 – I take both people and objects as something always in an uncertain status. We cannot fully define objects, but only try to understand and live with it in a complex and constantly changing context.Three pieces of furniture are created to visualize the idea about how the relationships between people and objects could be from this viewpoint, exploring how far away people could accept the imperfect but surprising experience of the world.

    Endangered Experiences in Nature: Designing for Future Nostalgia2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When outdoor recreational activities are restricted, where can we find solitude, exploration and self-reliance? Endangered Experiences in Nature is a project that creates disruptive scenarios to question the relationship we have now with landscapes. A forecast in which stargazing is replaced by watching cyborg fireflies in the sky, food is genetically engineered and getting lost can only happen with the aid of special devices.

    The thesis uses the tools of experience design and future studies to explore the meanings and values of nature. I analyze the experiential perspective of access to nature and outdoor recreation by focusing on experiences that will likely become inaccessible in the near future. This thesis is not about preservation but stands aspiring for recreating values humans got until now from the close relationship with natural settings. In doing so, I aspire to generate new experiences. My work therefore focuses not on what nature is but what it means to perceive something as being natural, wild, unexplored, in an age where every part of nature has been explored and exploited. My original contribution focuses on using nostalgia as an active method to create new relationships with our environment. Certain things will need to be “artificial” in order to achieve “real” experiences.

     

    The project will focus on three scenarios placed in the near future (2040). Each case study extrapolates on a particular endangered experience in wilderness (solitude, exploration and self-reliance) and is set in 3 distinct landscapes located in The Netherlands, Sweden and Romania. By doing so, I touch upon different cultural and natural influences on my design process. All scenarios encompass artificial (engineered) surrogates that question the inaccessibility to experiences in natural landscapes. With the goal to create counter-experiences in the future and therefore formulate a new way to deal with our relationship with nature conceptually and physically.

    Emotionally Meaningful Homecare: Designing for good relationships between patients and devices2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Industrial design is an expanding field. Through new research, discussion and explorations the definitions of what designers can and should do is constantly discussed and redefined. The starting point for my master thesis is the investigation of the concept of emotional durability. In other words, I have looked into how designers could create more meaningful relationships between users and products. It concerns product style norms, terminologies for describing relationship types, as well as a product’s meaning to a user. In order to put learning outcomes into practice, this master thesis also involves a design project where I created a proposal for a new rehabilitation product. There is great potential in investigating how meaningful medical devices for the home should be designed. During my design process I try to dig into what it means to design medical products for a home environment. At the same time, I explore how to create emotionally durable experiences for the patients and increase the motivation in their rehabilitation. My proposal is a balance exercising device that introduces a new level of user interaction, which connects back to my research on emotional durability.

    Transcenderande objekt: En konstnärlig undersökning av det utvidgade medvetandet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Through this project I want to examine how I can visualize the unseen dimensions of consciousness. Based on my interest in the hypnotic state and the transcendence of mind I have looked deeper into theories about consciousness and reality.

     

    Within the field of quantum physics, ideas have emerged about the meaning and expansion of consciousness in the universe. Some scientists say that consciousness could be one of the fundamental building blocks of nature such as materia and spacetime. Consciousness and materia could be inseparable properties - sharing the same fluxing, wave-like movement - therefore being different aspects of the same phenomena.

     

    By creating three-dimensional textile objects inspired by stones, with patterns and colour effects made through dyeing technics such as shibori, I am trying to interpret and express the unknown dimensions of consciousness. New Age and the psychedelic movement, dealing with the expanded consciousness, are aesthetic influences in my work. I also use light and textile qualities such as transparency and weight to visualize a dreamlike, transcending state of mind.

     

    In my research I have looked deeper in to the works of artists such as Hilma af Klint, James Turell and Mariko Mori who are working with subjects within the metaphysical and/or cosmological sphere.

    Abstract [sv]

    Jag har valt att som examensarbete kritiskt studera arkitektur och industridesign ur ett genusperspektiv för att därigenom hitta frågeställningar som skapar nya tolkningsprocesser och tankesätt i skapandet av byggnader och produkter.

    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.

    I AM WHAT AM I: An essay about ambivalence as a part of the creative process2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to explore how ambivalence can take the creative process further and how the same state of mind can be used to influence the viewer to redefine and revaluate what they are contemplating in an exhibition space.18

     

     

    In my artistic work I focus on the jewellery more as a tool to explain my concept then on form and functionality. I place my jewellery in situations where it becomes harder to categorise if they are jewellery, installations, sculptures or if they could be interpreted as something else. I am creating situations surrounding my jewellery with the aim to put the viewer in a state where they become ambiguous and are forced to revaluate what they are seeing and experiencing. It can be interpreted as one or several integrated pieces communicating with each other executed in materials that I believe has the qualities that can be connected to ambivalence.

     

     

    The textual discourse based on ambivalence is seen from different angels and is closely entangled with my own thoughts on the subject and related to my own artistic process and material choice. I further illustrate my considerations by referring to other artists that work with the jewellery in various ways.

    The Choice2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    People´s different ways of taking decisions and making choices has always intrigued me.  Some people´s choices seems perfectly logic to me and others choices makes no sense at all. In this essay I will look upon some of the theories of theology, philosophy and natural science about how and why we make our choices. Are our choices based on nature or nurture? Are we always free to choose? Is there a free will? Or are we actually controlled by something greater?
