    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

    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.

    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.

    A floor, four walls and a ceiling – this space that we take for granted has not always been a feature for humans.

    In my Degree project, I learn what a space has meant for people. I learn what existed before we built a room for ourselves, what came after, and what was a role of a fireplace in this process.

    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.

    This exam can be described as divided into three parts. First one is about the techniques of collages, where I explore and experiment with the possibilities of collages in practice and in philosophical terms. Second is about how words can create a space with meaning and symbolic value. And third is a combination of the two methods of interest into one concrete idea.

    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.

    Abstract [sv]

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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]

    ”I spend my days with a baby and that, patriarchy says, is not the stuff of art”*

    I noticed how I partly consisted of stories I wasn’t telling; even to myself. On thoughts and feelings generated by sharing life with a child; every other week. On being a mother. I needed get them down on paper, to blast out a space for them. The process has been a turbulent ritual of (self-)validation. And the result is an epic existential drama in a fragmented graphic-novelish book format.

    Subjective nature: Designing situations for nature and human to be emotionally intertwined2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project originated from my experience of an earthquake in September 2016, in Seoul, South Korea. It was an opportunity to re-think my disconnected relationship to nature. The sense of consciousness in nature and the symbiosis between humans and nature has been taken over by nature objectification. The question ´what if we change the perspective toward nature from objective to subjective?´ came to my mind. Subjective Nature means that humanity is emotionally intertwined with nature.

    In this project, I propose a sound installation that I named ‘Swing Jam’. The intention is to translate the natural movement of pendulums into a sound experience. This could be poetically interpreted as ‘giving a voice to nature’. By experiencing sound, I wish to evoke an emotional connection between nature and human.

    By empowering nature and individual experiences through designing situations, I wish to open up the emotional dialogue between human and nature. In this project, I’d like to awaken the importance of individual and emotional experience that is the core of being in an ecosystem. Furthermore, this is an accessible dialogue between nature and human.

    Exploring the moments of becoming - and possible, other spaces2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When making representations of interior architecture we imagine its becoming. One aspect of the qualities is the imaginary and also the spatial promise it can give. We can inhabit the space of a model or a drawing by using our own imagination. Without these dreams about the becoming we will not challenge ourselves and the field we are in. A model is a representation, a place that comes to act for another place. It has endless possibilities and provides space for the unexpected. Moments can become ungraspable, a kind of passage into the unknown. It can serve you by becoming something wherein something else can take place. Where we can inhabit an image, a kind of frozen moment in time, where everything yet is possible.

    Linjer & Rum2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 12 credits / 18 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt arbete handlar om Linjer och rum främst på grund av min faschination för linjer.

    En faschination som grundat sig i det grafiska, som sedan blev något mycket mer. 

    I mitt arbete undersöker jag vad som utgör en linje och vad som bildar den. Vad linjer gör med oss, hur de styr oss. Linjen är något vi ständigt måste förhålla oss till. De skapar rum, riktningar, öppningar och djup. Linjen är ett hjälpmedel för att beskriva och definiera objekt, rum och dess dimensioner. Linjen är också ett element, vårt verktyg för att förstå och förklara något mer i de sammanhang vi befinner oss i. Linjen fungerar som en gräns, en markering för var ett rum börjar, slutar och nästa tar vid. 

    Jag studerar konstnärers förhållningssätt till linjer och rum. Jag skapar en tankekarta där jag samlar dessa, adderar egna tankar och associationer inom ämnet. Jag bygger vidare, lämnar den ett tag. Går tillbaka och lägger till sådant jag finner under tiden. Jag hittar en plats att analysera med linjen i fokus. Jag dokumenterar och skapar en modell där jag testar mina teorier. Jag gör fullskalestudier för att studera rörelsemönster och beteenden, hur linjer kan få oss att förändra hur vi rör oss. 

    Linjen är en del av min metod där jag applicerar eller förändrar linjer för att ifrågasätta och skapa nya rumsformer och samband i befintliga rum, liksom nya. Linjerna hjälper mig förtydliga och omforma de betintliga linjer som dragits och bildat en form eller ett rum. Jag använder linjerna för att synliggöra och påvisa tankar och idéer jag själv har om rum.

    Sculpting the emotional (magic) space2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I create spaces, that are presented as sets (scenographies), by working with storytelling, colour, geometry and transitions. By exploring tangible and abstract elements, I compose different atmospheres. Atmosphere is the central aesthetic category in my work, and creating an emotional experience through space is my intention.

    The spaces are inspired by a magic realist novel. I transpose the text into images, to then sculpt spaces with geometry, colour and light. I write new stories and descriptions about these spaces as I imagine the atmospheres to be experienced.

    Transitions are fundamental to my project: the transition of Latin-American references within magic realism and emotional architecture, to my own context at this moment in Sweden; the transition from text to space (and vice versa); and the transitions between spaces in my composition. These are my apparatuses in sculpting the emotional and magic space.

    World of Desire2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project report offers an in-depth, detailed account of my creative process and work during my two-year Master in visual communication at Konstfack, Stockholm.

    My degree project is a celebration of plurality and visual democracy. Starting with identifying different norms pervading the graphic design discipline in the Western world today, both in terms of aesthetic values and systems of thinking, I have worked to propose and visualize alternative possible futures. 

    Drawing has been my main carrier through an intense journey of un-learning and re-learning resulting in an artist’s book in unique copy. 

    With this book, I want to problematize the dominant discourses around objectivity as a utopian ideal with a suppressive agenda, while visualizing a world I can recognize myself in. I have used decoration as a method, emotion and femininity as explorative standpoints, giving space to the metaphorical, the ambiguous and the spiritual to challenge current visual norms. 

    This book emerges as an affirmation of my own quest for visual belonging  as a graphic designer and a woman; a testimony of the practice of drawing as actualized power.

    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.

    Visualising the Invisible2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Visualising the Insivible is a project whose final materialization reflects upon our connection with

    information and how it can immediately affect the way we view the world beyond and around us.

    Throughout my research and the development of this project, several “meta-words” relevant to this project

    had to be considered: respect, dignity, integrity and information accuracy, thus redefining a challenge

    within a challenge and, more concretely, the need to contemplate upon a topic of our time that happens to

    influence politics and society alike, locally, but with a global effect and long term impact.

    With this project, the role of the visual communicator is highlighted in a different way. His or her role

    becomes an agent in itself, a curator of information, a journalist, an invisible activist. The role of the

    designer and the purpose of design as it is commercially perceived is questioned, challenged and

    confronted.

    Fractions of an entrance: A study of doors, investigating lines through movement2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract 

    The door is a critical element when aiming to construct a boundary that

    separates space and can make us view the world as divided. 

    The door has the ability to connect and divide spaces. When we open a door we fold one room into another. 

    I have investigated the door, as an object, a boarder and idea. 

    What defines something as closed or open? How long does it take to walk through a door? What happens to the door when I remove the walls around it? 

    In Fractions of an entrance I have used movement and the memory of movement to investigate the door. I investigate the door by 

    moving through, filming both me and the door, sketching and building the sequence into frozen frames. Through my investigation, the door has become a passage of doors that unfold movement and time. 

    The door works as an director, choreographing human movement, deciding how, if and when we enter a space. I have used movement as a 

    method because I believe that it is through movement that we perceive space, we constantly move and experience space from multiple 

    perspectives. I find it strange that the most common way to represent architecture is from a perspective that humans almost never see. 

    Fraction of an entrance is a representation of my perception of the opening of a door, it is not a new door or a door with a new function. It is a

    representation based on reflections and investigations of the door. The result is in itself a spacial design, with new spacial qualities. 

    That enhances invisible separations in space, create different patterns of movement an usage of space, creates smaller nooks to pause and gives you a possibility to remain in the moment between two rooms. A space in the threshold. 

    One can say that it is a physical stop motion, frozen frames where the order and pace of the opening is determined by the one who moves through it. In this installation time is frozen, you can see both present, past and future at the same time. 

    In Fractions of an entrance - the door’s memory has been made to a physical construction.

    Stilles Design: A pursuit for creating conditions for openness2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present work represents both: a design proposal and a proposal for design.Today we are exposed to more and louder noise than ever before in all areas of human life, which alters the environment, our health and the quality of social interaction to the worse. Therefore, this project takes its departure point in the concept of Stille (German for stillness and silence) in order to oppose this culture of noise.

    Our surroundings influence our actions and vice versa we alter these surroundings with our actions. However, since constructed within every detail, they do not allow a transient feedback to take place naturally. A possible otherness is hardly attainable in an overly planned reality.This thesis seeks to transcend the boundaries where descriptive language ceases to function and introduces materiality and interactive devices to evoke other avenues of reflection where the boundaries of actor, context and artefact converge.

    The proposal at hand embodies the fundamental principles of Stille in order to exploit aspects of parametric design and contingency. It imagines and materialises alternative ways of a potentially open process in which our physical environment could continuously constitute itself. Both hidden and apparent aspects of reality are unraveled and transformed into artifacts. The work depicts the transient complexity of reality and the contingent influence of everyone on our surroundings.

    How is our behaviour altered by the materialisation of ideas? How receptive is the current design practice to a constantly changing reality?

    Painting to see the room

    Drill a small, almost invisible hole in the center of the canvas and see the room through it.

     

    Grapefruit: A Book of Instructions and Drawings by Yoko Ono

     

     

    In this project I have designed and built a set of analog tools that can be used to explore a space.  I have been looking into how the objects make us see new qualities in the architecture and give us understandings about our relationship to the space. 

     

    The elements  I have worked with are frames, mirrors and tubes that in different ways cut, shift, create distances or access in the space.

     

     

    I am sharing my findings through illustrations, inspired by both comics and architecture representation.

    With the drawings I want to stimulate the debate and create an awareness on how we experience spaces and architecture.

    Lost in Alienation: A Travelogue Searching a Fashruption2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    An average Swede buys 13 kilograms textile material every year, but an average Swede also throws away 8 kilograms every year. Adding a layer of exponential growth, I wonder what will happen with these numbers over the years and more importantly – how will it affect the emotional life of the consumer? Over the years I have developed an interest in the systemic entanglement of fashion – mainly as the urgency to create systemic shifts only has increased. 

    Fashruption is a happy marriage of the words fashion and disruption, and forms the title for this travelogue, exploring what a fashruption could be. Fashion – that adorns the bodies to showcase the self in the social. A phenomenon in constant dynamic flow of becoming, that thrives on an expiration date. And disruption – that perhaps can release space for a renegotiation on the ways we create identities and consume fashion. But what kind of disruption has the power to challenge current behaviours?

    This project is divided into two parts; first a problem setting design process focusing on exploring emotional logics (or illogics) that fashion is intertwined with, extracting reflections on relationships between production–consumption–creation of identities–waste. Secondly, a fashruption is suggested to be a large-scale campaign directed towards people with future-orientated momentum. It will present a strategy proposing ideas of designed material that gives space for self-reflection at the same time building knowledge, aiming to construct publics – who has the possibility to renegotiate the terms upon which they live.

    Church Nomadism: A fictional design scenario into the metamorphosis of the Catholic Church2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    From an investigation about the catholic church decline, into the possibility of losing its social privileges and places of worship for the lack of faithful. What shapes might this “crisis of catholicism” take within our urban landscape?  A fictional future scenario where the church get back to nomadism and essential principles of its beginning, framing a deinstitutionalized faith at the centre. Inflatable micro-architectures constitute a system of mobile organs approaching the city, emphasizing the humility and the missionary future of catholicism.
