    Observing the Maelstrom2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Observing the Maelstrom is a publication that presents critical perspectives on technology, society, and design. It explores topics such as manipulative web design, biased algorithms, and commercial surveillance, by looking at the history of technology and the social impact of new media. The concept of technology is stretched and questioned. The texts consider shoes, smartphones, faucets, lightbulbs, arrows, typewriters, books, wheels, and quantum computers as technologies that expand our abilities and shape our behavior.

    Typography always reflects the dominant techniques and technologies of its time. In the publication, the relationship between technology and typography is examined with a particular focus on the typewriter era and the typographic history of IBM. The typeface Artisan was popular with users of the IBM Selectric typewriter but has since been mostly forgotten. For the project, the author created a new digital version of Artisan. Therefore Artisan gains a second life as a digital typeface and its history is given a unique context in this publication.

    Skogsglänta2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt examensarbete är ett utforskande av skogsgläntan. Med skogsglänta syftar jag delvis på den faktiska fysiska platsen men även ett sinnestillstånd, en mental plats, som jag starkt förknippar med skogen. Denna mentala plats kan beskrivas som ett djupt inre lugn och acceptans - en tidlös närvaro befriad från självmedvetenhet, rationalitet och norm.

    Projektets process har formats av ett sökande efter sätt att uppleva detta även utanför skogen och en vilja att frigöra min kreativa process från tidigare inlärda mönster och idéer. Med skogsgläntan närvarande i tankarna har jag arbetat förutsättningslöst och intuitivt för att potentiellt skapa en grogrund för något visuellt oförutsägbart och symboliskt att växa fram.

    Compost Compendium2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ​​I collect things, I chew them up. I put them in a pile, and they merge. Snippets of texts, a note in the margin, screenshots and ornaments rub against each other until they become something else. A fertiliser for new ideas to grow from. 

    The seed of this project was a climate crisis-related numbness: I felt stuck between individual responsibility and powerlessness. Between wanting immediate restorative action and realising the need for a deeper systematic change. I began digging into the history of the Western view on nature, tracing its dark roots.

    Now, two years later, I re-emerge, and I want to share my findings. Using collage as a visual translation of the compost pile, the project is an expression of multiple voices, exemplifying the need for collective thinking and action in these matters. 

    With the Compost Compendium I offer a collection of entry points into a reimagining of the relationship we have with the ecologies in and around us. I have filled it with things that have inspired me, angered me, puzzled me, made me smarter, made me laugh, made me want to get my hands dirty.

    I invite my reader to go foraging and collect their own pile. Dive into it and share it with a friend.

    DEEPER. DEEPER, CLOSER, CLOSER: Between a language of inwardness and that of pure surface2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The image of the female figure is present, yet she is in constant need of being produced in order to persist. Images of women are everywhere, but simultaneously she is nowhere near, caught up in hyper-(in)visibility.

    In these drawings Channa explores the motions and emotions of looking closer and going deeper, in order to demonstrate that the woman is only a copy of a copy without an original. The act of re-claiming, re-inventing and re-signifying the concept of womanhood is doomed to be both exclusive and inclusive. By centering the unsettling, yet liberating insight that resistance is never in a position of exteriority in relation to power, Channa questions the act of intervening; how the intervention itself must construct the image it wants to deconstruct.

    Vi bor här nu: Rapport2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt projekt är en bilderbok som skildrar en kort men omvälvande tid i ett barns liv. 

    En flytt river upp känslor och osäkerhet.

    Bildvärden var min ingång till berättelsen. 

    Den visuella världen är uppbyggd av olika minnen och referenser  porträtterade i kollage form.

    Bilderna fokuserar på barnets perspektiv, att porträttera den kroppsliga känslan snarare än den anatomiskt korrekta.

    Samlandet av bilder har varit som att trä pärlor på tråd, att plocka upp karaktärer och sätta dem i olika scener som sen placerats i olika ordning.

    De bildar en berättelse om vänskap och hur den påverkas av förväntningar vi får från andra.

    Berättelsen speglar klass, tillhörighet och vilka konsekvenser små vardagliga ting kan få för ett barn.

    Jag är bara lite trött2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Stress är något alla människor kan uppleva i sin vardag, och är en naturlig del för att vi ska överleva. Men vad händer när stressen blir långvarig och utvecklas till fysisk och psykisk ohälsa? Varför blir våra hjärnor så stressade? Då utmattningssyndrom är väldigt vanligt i dagens samhälle, och något jag själv hade erfarenheter av, ville jag förstå och komma till kärnan av problemet. Jag har i mitt avgångsprojekt arbetat med att visualisera och berätta om utmattning och stressrelaterad ohälsa. Under projektet undersökte jag vad stress är, och tog bland annat kontakt med Marie Åsberg som myntade begreppet utmattningssyndrom och som är senior professor inom stressrehab, på Daneryds sjukhus. Jag har visualiserat ämnet från olika perspektiv och genrer: via samhällsanalys, biografi, fabel, självbiografi. Min visuella research ledde till en publikation med fragmentariska bilder, bildberättelser och tecknade serier.

    The Performance of Like-minded People2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I mitt arbete har jag utforskat det konstnärliga religiösa arvet och hur bilder, symboler och fysiska föremål är grundläggande för kulturellt konsensus. Jag har utforskat fenomenet i gemensam tro på något övernaturligt och abstrakt med hjälp av klädkoder, måleri, skulptur, text och rumslig gestaltning. Inspirationen har jag tagit från bland annat kyrkobyggnadens sceniska egenskaper, där föreställningar tar plats. Ett annat tema i verket är kopplingarna till ritualen och innebörden i handlingen, liksom betydelsen av ord och bilder för människors förmåga att forma en tro på något immateriellt. Upplevelse och inlevelse är viktiga delar i vidareförandet av budskap, både inom konst och religion. Min intention med det här verket är kort sagt ett experiment och en parafras på religiös visuell kommunikation, och att jag försökt samla den kärnfulla symboliken som blivit bevarad i det, utifrån min egen tolkning och erfarenhet. Vem eller vilka det här är för är egentligen inte det viktigaste i min mening, utan jag ser det som ett personligt undersökande av något som intresserar mig och förhoppningsvis andra med.

    /Maybe/Probably/Certainly2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project is an experimentation and examination of contemporary computer vision and machine learning, with an emphasis on machine generated imagery and text, as well as object identification. In other words, this is a study of how computers and machines are learning to see and recognize the world. Computer vision is a kind of visual communication that we rarely think of as being designed. With an emphasis on written and visual research, this project aims to comprehend what exactly goes into the creation of machine generated imagery and artificial vision systems.

    I have spent the last couple of months looking through the lense of cameras, object identification apps and generative neural networks in order to try and understand how AI perceives reality. This resulted in a mixed media story about images and vision, told through the perspective of a fictional AI character.

    Apocalypse Fatigue2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this project I am exploring 6 different life forms; snail, slime mold, frog, rock, moss, and fungi.

    I am approaching these life-forms as agent entities for me to channel, and act for them as vessels.

     “Apocalypse Fatigue” is both an exploration of my own artistic practice, by attempting to create works from a nonhuman-centric perspective and investigating how different entities can be co-creators, and an exploration of its sustainability.

      It is also an attempt to approach nature as a direct actor to create multiple narratives regarding climate change. Taking the perspective of another organism allows me to imagine alternative ways of being in the world, and through them, I can explore my own emotions, artistic visions or reflect on social issues with a fresh perspective. In a wider way, my work tries to challenge, modestly, dominant world views and presents an alternative to the apocalyptic narratives so often mobilized when speaking about climate change.

    Feeling—Doing—Feeling2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Feeling—Doing—Feeling är ett experimenterande med metodutveckling för formgivning. Med mina känslor som utgångspunkt undersöks möjligheten att låta dessa styra över min arbetsprocess. Jag har kopplat ihop olika känslor med specifika verktyg och funktioner och varje dag startas med en analys av mitt känslotillstånd för att få veta vilket verktyg eller vilken funktion som ska användas. 

    När känslotillståndet förändras under dagen byter jag till de verktyg som är kopplade till den nya känslan. Metoden bildar en kedja av emotionella och praktiska konsekvenser och det formgivna arbetet kommunicerar inte enbart det omedelbara innehållet, utan fungerar även som en emotionell dagbok för mig som kreatör. I Feeling—Doing—Feeling testar jag metoden på tre typer av textmaterial som alla har någon form av betydelse för mig. 

    I mitt examensarbete visas dessa tre experiment, men också en film i vilken formgivningsmetoden presenteras. Bilder från min process redovisas i tryck där varje sida placeras på ett bord tillsammans med de andra processbilderna. I examensarbetet visas även en form av känslo- och verktygsdagsbok där varje emotion och verktyg som upplevts och använts i arbetet med formgivningen redovisas i kronologisk ordning i en trycksak. 

    I föreliggande uppsats kommer jag att redogöra för hur denna formgivningsmetod uppstod och hur jag praktiskt har gått till väga under utvecklingen av den. Jag kommer även att redovisa mina reflektioner kring processen samt de tvivel och problem jag har stött på.

    Abstract [en]

    In my Bachelor’s project I have attempted to explore and develop my relationship with the amorphous concept that is ”style”. As an illustrator I am sometimes torn between the idea of having a single recognizable style or to be experimental and to use aesthetics as a tool rather than a signifier of a personal brand. 

    The project takes the form of an anthology of weird fiction stories, where each of the eight stories are illustrated in different ways and with different materials. I have choses weird fiction as a subject not only because of personal interest but also because of the specific qualities of the genre. Weird fiction deals in uncertainties and mood, with a huge emphasis on how things are told, not what is told. In this project I have attempted to transfer some of these qualities to my illustration practice. Letting the contents of the image take the backseat to how it is drawn. Both as a method for producing the anthology but also to develop as an illustrator overall.

    Vi kan bättre: Hur fungerar illustration för att väcka och driva en fråga?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is about the communication of bullying, and its aim is to shift the focus from the individual’s problem to the collective mind. Scientists have concluded that bullying is the result of a group behaviour, where the individual aims to be a part of the group, or control its peers. Despite this, it is mainly the image of the individual that is communicated as a representation of the subject. This leads to the people that aren’t directly involved with the subject to become distansed and uninterested in any real change. This project has taken inspiration from the people rights movements, where the individual problem (alcoholism, unemployment, etcetera) became a problem of society. What would happen if bullying became as urgent? With illustration as a tool, the project aims to involve and engage the audience at Konstfack Spring Degree Exhibition 2016 towards a larger movement that is anti-bullying. This paper will first deal with the topic of bullying, and then move towards how bullying is presented and communicated, and then end up with an artistic piece that aims to change the traditional way of speaking of bullying.

    Abstract [en]

    Dwelling on Thresholds reflects upon different modes of living/being, how we feel in different rooms and whom we decide to share space with. It asks how the spaces we dwell in affect our ability to access common and private spheres when needed or wanted. Along the way, tactility has come to play a big part in the work which has visually crystallized into a 30 m2 threshold curtain made up of floor plans of all apartments I have lived in over the past 10 years. An abstract information graphics with textures and colour nuances reflecting levels of well-being, alienation and moods in-between. The accompanying publication investigates our constructed environment as well as modes of thinking and dwelling in ‘the common’.

    Typopa: En presentationsapp för grundskolan2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Grafisk design och illustration är en viktig del av grundskoleundervisningen, utan att en kanske tänker på det. Skolbarn är omgivna av bokstäver, typsnitt, färger, foton, illustrationer och får ofta arbeta med att komponera bild och text.

    Digitaliseringen i grundskolan har till största del gått ut på att ge varje skolbarn tillgång till en egen dator eller läsplatta. Men det är otydligt hur och med vilka program och appar som teknologin faktiskt ska användas. Lärare får på egen hand leta efter digitala läromedel som kan passa undervisningen. Detta leder till att de digitala läromedel och verktyg som används i grundskolor ofta kan vara på engelska, innehålla reklam, eller vara utvecklade för andra syften än undervisning.

    Typopa är en presentationsapp för läsplattor som skapats med just grundskolan i åtanke. Med appen ska skolbarn och lärare i grundskolan enkelt kunna samla ihop och komponera bild och text till presentationer som sedan kan projiceras på vägg eller skriva ut. Appens metodik och gränssnitt utgår ifrån grafisk design och typografi, men utan att använda sig av strikta regler eller avancerade termer.

    Abstract [sv]

    En fiktiv plats, en by någonstans i Sverige. I byn bor det bybor och i serieformat följer man denna samling med människor. Med hjälp av en tillhörande karta över byn kan läsaren följa med berättelsen och se distansen mellan allt och alla.

    Hur ser relationen mellan landsbygd och storstad ut idag?

    Jag har fördjupat mig i tema landsbygd, med hjälp av andras och min egen bild har jag skapat en fiktiv värld. Detta resulterade i en 32 sidig satirisk serietidning med runt 11 olika karaktärer.

    There must be other ways: A personal plea for more complexity, dialogue, and otherness in wayfinding design2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ‘There Must Be Other Ways’ explores alternative approaches to wayfinding design. Through practical experimentation I explore how signs can give room to more complexity in language, can be made in dialogue with the people they depict, and can highlight under-represented ways of navigation.

    The text focuses on three ways of working and ways of looking in wayfinding design that are so common in the practice that I identify them as norms: standardisation, simplification, and universalism. In three separate projects, I explain how each of those norms came to be part of the practice, share some of my experiences with them, and experiment with ways to challenge them. In Chapter 1, I try to include individuals and communities in the design process instead of following international standards. In Chapter 2, I show how to incorporate complexity in signage instead of hiding it. And in Chapter 3, I explore how wayfinding design can visualise otherness instead of holding on to universalism.

    Under the Mirroring Surface2018In: VIS : Nordic journal for artistic research, E-ISSN 2003-024X, no 0Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In my work I experiment with ‘de-imagineering’ and intervening into the ‘urban commons,’ through practices of altering and re-purposing existing structures. The work is both informal and transgressive in its methodology, with the core intention to investigate and participate in the shaping and making of the city. Art and research can provide keys to accessing such a city in the making; a space where we can challenge the preconceptions of what is possible, and to imagine alternative strategies for the creation of realities. As the concept of ‘imagineering’ suggests; it is imagination-engineering possibilities to hypothetically look behind reality and shape it. Furthermore, I wish to specify ‘imagination,’ as the thought material that potential realities are made from. As the term ‘imagineering’ is heavily connected to its use in the creative economy, I suggest the wordplay of ‘de-imagineering’ (the deconstruction of imagination). I argue that the production of imagination is fundamental for the change of current conditions and should as such be re-appropriated. In this sense it’s an anarchist posture; it denounces everything that cuts us off from and diminishes our own power to act.

    Not only imagination is held in the deposit and account holdings of corporate and commercial actors, but so are many of the tactics that are designed to contest this hegemony. Counter culture is continuously being transformed to fit as capitalism’s sanitizing tool in “redeveloping” cities, co-opted and instrumentalized in processes of gentrification. In my work this manifests the ethical issue of having a practice that risks to end up fueling the dominant system in opposition. A phenomenon that the Situationists referred to as Récuperation; “the activity of society as it attempts to obtain possession of what negates it,” or one could say: how strategies of resistance towards ‘the spectacle’ ends up being a vital part of it.

    Based on this knowledge I’m researching which transgressive strategies, evasive yet present, could be practiced under the Lefebvrian concept of the ‘Right to the City.’ How could they be constructed, performed and shared?

    Allmänningen (The Common Room)2022Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Allmänningen (The Common Room) was a Vinnova-funded project at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, Gothenburg University (2018–2021). The aim of the project was to begin to develop and pilot a new public model for collaboration and usership between the university and society. Referring directly to the Swedish commons concept of Allmänningen and illustrated through terms such as Allmän (general), Allemansrätten (right of public access), Allmänheten (the general public), the commons can be viewed as not only a right to public access, but a relation between societal institutions and the individual citizen. A relation which within the context of Sweden, could be applied and extended to a publicly funded university as a common societal resource.

    In print2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ”In print” är ett fördjupande projekt i analoga trycktekniker. Jag undersöker material, form och färg genom att kombinera högtryck och screentryck. Jag arbetar analogt med bild, form och typografi för att skapa kompositioner.

    Projektet resulterar i en publikation som dokumenterar min process, reflektioner samt de färdiga trycken. Syftet är att visualisera arbetet bakom de olika tryckteknikerna, men också ett undersökande hur man kan arbeta intuitivt och experimentellt med grafisk form genom analoga metoder.

    Adagio2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Adagio är en bildberättelse om kärlek, ensamhet, om längtan och sökandet efter närhet. Den handlar även om minnen, hur vi minns andra och oss själva i relation till dem och om hur tidens gång påverkar våra minnen. I detta projekt har jag utforskat hur jag kan rita karaktärer utan tydliga könsidentiteter. Under projektets gång har jag även utforskat min process och har för första gången arbetat med en serie bilder i en bildberättelse. Jag har utforskat metoder för att berätta med ett ickelinjärt perspektiv. Mitt syfte med detta har varit att skapa en berättelse som går att läsa ur många olika vinklar. En berättelse som är öppen för åskådarens egen personliga tolkning och känslomässiga upplevelse. Snarare än att tydligt berätta berättelsen för åskådaren har jag haft som mål att frambringa vissa känslor hos denne.

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport redovisar och diskuterar mitt arbete om mina egna och andra tvillingars erfarenheter och uppfattningar kring att vara just tvilling. Detta ur ett känsloperspektiv som jag har utvecklat olika typer av formgivningsprinciper för. 

    Målet med arbetet har varit att genom formgivning och olika formval berätta, bearbeta och experimentera med ämnet tvillingar. Erbjuda betraktaren en inblick i denna syskonrelation.

    Arbetet bygger på ett förarbete med kortare intervjuer och research som har genererat material. Både formpinciper och illustrationer.

    Resultatet av arbetet är en bok vars form och innehåll utforskar och experimenterar med ämnet.

    MOTHER TONGUE  / מאַמע-לשון: An interscriptual typeface2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for my degree project was the experience of an “in-betweenship”: to be in the middle of two cultures. If language is a bearer of culture and typography the body of language, as a graphic designer I was curious about what typography could be created from this intermediate position. In particular, I wanted to work with methods, tools, and expressions derived from my Jewish heritage in order to change my conditions for type construction and language.

    I have explored the typographic ligature as a method and form; historically created to save time and space in typesetting, but here used to find common denominators between two structurally different scripts. One question in particular has guided my process: can I create something whole from an intermediate position – something that isn’t one or the other, but a third possibility?

    The result is a calligraphic, interscriptual typeface with hybrids of Latin and Hebrew letters that can be read from left-to-right in English, as well as right-to-left in Yiddish. Based on my own poem about this in-betweenship – introduced on p.50 – the visual appearence comes from the codependency between the two scripts, a well as the compromises this merge entailed. This way, it doesn’t only represent my own hybridized experience but also the Jewish experience at large, shaped by influences from other cultures and languages over centuries of flight and migration.

    Searching for possibilities in the gaps of what is known2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    What I do is about finding solutions and escaping limitations. I am looking for possibilities in the gaps of what is known. My name is Oskar. I am an illustrator gone graphic designer gone somewhere else. I work with form, I work with tools. Through this report I will tell you the story of how form takes form. Of how the tools and processes we work with influence the visual language we produce, and reproduce.This will be a journey through the possibilities and impossibilities of design. I will tell you about my attempts to escape. To de-learn and relearn. I will share my tactics and my process.

    For the last year I have been looking for ways to surprise myself. To ask questions that give unexpected answers. I have focused on the production of form. The dialogue between me, my material and my tools. A dialogue I want to share with you through this report.

    In my project I want to use practice to reveal and avoid the limitations I find in the tools that I use. These limitations are not general and applicable to the whole field of graphic design, but are based on my practice and experience. By using doing as a way of thinking I look for and think about what I experience as limiting and how these limitations can be escaped. I believe that to look closely at the tools and processes used to make form can be a way to understand how ways of working and choices of tools influence visual language. In order to do this I have chosen to look at the tools I use the most. I want to investigate the inherit possibilities of the tools and processes that I use in my practice by questioning their methods and uses. In the process of finding new entry points to parts of my practice I hope to, in a hopeful and constructive way, produce new ideas and visual expressions instead of reproducing old ones.

    It can be problematic to use few tools, especially when these tools are not consciouslychosen by the designer but by the field and the market, as the values they representare reproduced in our design. I want to discuss the importance of defining one’s tools, their uses and what they are used for. I feel that a field so heavily dependant on so few, almost compulsory tools, needs discussion and a width of perspective. No tools should be removed from the toolbox, however I think we need a wider spectrum of tools and an understanding of how they influence how we think about, think with, understand and learn through the practice of design.
