    Not a Girl, Not yet a Woman.: How do I look at Girls?2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I’m not a girl, not yet a woman, but I do have popular sensibilities.

    Pop music plucks ideas and symbols from where ever it pleases to create a new narrative. So do I. Reflecting on how I see women and how the gaze of others affects this. By mapping my magpie like collection of images, songs, paintings and films I tell the story of my girl gang. My ceramic sculptures are a physical manifestation of my research into different ways of looking at girls.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract.

     

    What is it that I want to do and where does my practice fit in? In the beginning of this project I was not only confused about what I wanted to do I was also a bit lost in life. I saw the opportunity to work around the therapeutic aspects of making.

    For me making has always been a way towards fulfillment, often creations come along in the moment and the pleasure is sudden. Then I quickly move along, looking for new kicks.

    I have been struggling with seeing my own work and reflecting on its qualities, not trusting the result of my intuitive process.

     

    At tension.

     

    The first sketches I was working on were small wax figures, they worked like a journal sort of. I would shape it from my mood or thoughts that day. I moved on to casting these objects and the quality of pewter would weigh them down, there was a connection with these small heavy bodies and my own. But their weight was not enough, there had to be more force than gravity holding them back.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    I want to talk about tactile experiences, words that extend beyond touch. A full-body experience of space that begins with the senses, creating a collective understanding when everything is combined. We step in unbeknownst, activating our senses through the shapes and textures that enthral us. With our eyes, we access the dynamic of the room. 

    The foundation of my work is texture, so I explore the surface through it and textile is my chosen material because it allows me to do just that. By distorting, adding and pulling apart I can always get a new experience of it. In this project I work with three-dimensional patterns on the surface of the textile, and with subtle changes in volume I try to capture the light that falls on it and emphasis the texture to make the experience of it even richer.

    Structures of a depiction which I no longer remember2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I'll make a big, yellow tapestry.

    In the project I'll examine textures and surfaces in a monumental tapestry, and the translation of an image into a tapestry through reliefs and materials.

    I'm a tapestry weaver, and in this project I'll work with structures and the sculptural aspect of weaving in an abstract tapestry. My aim for my textiles in general is to give the viewer a sublime feeling when they meet my work.

    In an extended scene this is a textile version of a photography. When I look at something for a long amount of time, it'll turn into structures, then the image itself is not so important anymore but the memory of it. This is a tapestry where I have turned this memories into structures in textile material.

    This project is a research in many various woven structures and techniques, which is arranged intuitively. It doesn't have a specific message but to re-create the sense of many and complex feelings. The different structures portrays the process of memories, like solitude, fears, tenderness, abstraction/imagination and concrete reality. This tapestry is the result of many experiments with the form and structure.

    Abstract [en]

    By reflecting upon the works I make and my thoughts surrounding them I've been looking to develop my way of understanding and working with art. By looking at both creative and emotional aspects underlying the artistic process I try to understand what impact they have on both the art and the artist.

    Through my working process and by writing about my thoughts and emotions during this project I come to the conclusion that this is what can be referred to as a cathartic experience for me.

    Ur fokus: Ett arbete om osynlighet inom, utanför och utan den fysiska kroppen2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     My subject is invisibility.

    In order to thoroughly investigate the subject, I applied the concept of invisibility inside, outside and without the physical body. I have investigated what has to give way to that which comes into focus, and the shift in value that occurs when something is highlighted or added at the expense of something else. To avoid seeing something is to prevent it from taking up space and consequently drain it of value. We reduce the uncomfortable by placing it, consciously or unconsciously, in the background hoping it will disappear. The act of avoidence gives a false illusion that the situation could be reduced to a point of vanishing. As if that which has not been seen, never happened.

     

    Not being able to acknowledge the uncomfortable could be the result of not wanting to recognize difficult aspects concerning oneself, such as shame or guilt. The fear of having to identify with feelings that negatively charged makes the reflection unbearable to meet. An uncomfortable situation can therefore appear so piercing to the eye that it becomes almost invisible.

     

    Through my process, I chose to use psychoanalysis and phenomenology as different tools of perspective to try to get closer to what, how and why we see what we see. This includes how we for instance handle the idea of someone or something when the physical body is absent. How we, through traces of human behavior relate to an object by the motion and technique that shaped it. Or the idea of being able to relate to the idea of an object, and thus "actualize" things that are not really there. I also investigated the shaping of one's identity. How we sometimes construct our bodies, stretch and transform ourselves to be seen. Where the qualities that others recognize and appreciate become the very thing you begin to visualize, maybe even identify with. A place of transformation, where bodies can take the shape of others, or take the shape of the contact with others. But also a place of reduction, a struggle between bodies where one is reduced to feed the other. I have also investigated how ignored bodies have to relate to the ruling norms, surroundings and laws created by others, and how the passive room can become an active component that reveals you as out of place.

     

    For me "invisibility" speaks a destructive and fragile language. I am therefore using materials such as glass, porcelain and lead in my work consisting of corpus objects. I define corpus as body related objects that find their context in the eating, and through eating it incorporates the table and craft tradition of silversmithing. As a body related object, corpus becomes a “substitute body” or "a body in my place." Corpus can squeeze, lift, divide, carry, devour, hold, leak, hide and preserve. Bodily functions transferred into another body. I even believe it possible to transfer part of ones identity into corpus. I decided to let the context of focus shift from the table to the relationship corpus has to the human body. Since corpus, unlike for instance jewellery, has no acknowledged place on the human body, it instead finds itself relating to human behavior. Because of the space between user and object, it’s another kind of intimate relation that also connects to the movement of the human and the space in which she moves. My creative work is therefore explained by other bodies / body parts closely linked to our everyday lives.

     

    Working with the definition of corpus as a substitute body, I have chosen the concept of "destructive prostheses" to interpret my view of invisibility.

    EMBRACING THE DIGITAL TO THE HAND MADE: Bridging digital technology with glassblowing moulds crafting methods2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    This report accompanies my Master project in the fields of ceramic and glass, the CRAFT! MA program, Konstfack. In this project I fuse my industrial design toolbox and my current engagement in open-source 3D printing technology with my ceramic and glass craft practice. The first pair brings in notions of innovation and an active approach towards technological change, while the second carry ancient craft methods and knowledge. I develop and make 3D printers for clay and use them as an experimental ceramic work method. In this research based practice I use ceramics as the material for 3D printed glassblowing moulds. This act represents a link between ceramic and glass crafts, one that was known to the ancient Roman craftsmen. 

    A view on craft and digital innovation

    Although the computer is in use for several decades now, in most crafts it is still used mainly as an assistive device and we seem not to look at it as a professional tool; as a craft tool. New methods of making are out there. We need to have two toolboxes now: Our traditional one and our new digital one. We can already CAD our concepts, control CNC machines and build 3D-printers customised to our growing new practice. We share our new knowledge on open-source platforms, teach each other through the web (and around the globe) how to apply digital techniques to our craft. We now have the opportunity to join hands with the movements of democratisation of contemporary manufacturing techniques and reinvent our practice, our tools and what new-craft could be.

    Abstract [en]

    A self portrait. With an auto ethnographic study method and my own craft; glass making I examine tacit knowledge. A portrait not only of me, but also the human in need of control. An invite to look at our society and see how the measurable is in charge and positivistic science have the leading position in knowledge production. 

    I aim for the subjective, the knowledge stored in my body which is passed on through making, in to the glass to be kept.

    Jag har skapat ett verktyg för att kunna synliggöra mina egna tysta kunskaper. Under 120 timmar blåste jag en och samma form och sparade allt i en kronologisk ordning. Formen eller glaset blev ett verktyg genom vilket jag sedan kunde studera min kroppsliga inlärning utifrån. Jag ser mitt verk som en processberättande dagbok. Ett utsnitt av ett arbete ur vilket jag sedan kan betrakta min kroppsliga inlärning ur ett nytt perspektiv; genom glaset.

    ONE SIZE FITS ALL :): An EKLUND EKLUND Movie2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I create to heal wounds – personal, emotional and social. I create to break the patriarchy  and normative systems that excludes people of different genders, sexualities, colours and bodies. I make human wear – fashion for bodies of all sizes and genders. I want people to be comfortable with themselves and their bodies and that is the goal with my brand EKLUND EKLUND. 

    The fashion world today consists of “his and hers”, size zero, “wear and tear” and sexist ads, all of which maintains heteronormativity and sick beauty ideals. Clothes are made for “women” and “men” in size XS-XL, leaving everyone outside of those norms excluded. 

    I will research the gender - and beauty norms in western media and fashion and how it affects people and their self esteem. How can I make fashion inclusive and socially sustainable? Can I make clothes that fits all? 

    I’m gonna make a One Size Queer Couture Collection to include different expressions and bodies to change the norms of gender and size. One Size that adjusts to different shapes and sizes, Queer as in genderless for everyone and Couture as in hand-made fashion. 

    I will achieve this through experimental pattern making, non-normative design and a presentation of the clothes with and for people confronting norms of gender, sexualities, beauty and colour.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an investigation in stages of transformation between body and ornament to show upon their fluid relationship and their role for the creation of human identity. I see the act of adorning the body as an act of desire, in which we take part to become something more elevated than our original state of being. I use my background as a jeweller and the body as the territory for investigating these acts of transformation. Through material explorations I examine how we mirror ourselves in the things we make and how we reinvent our bodies through making. I compare the role of the maker with the scientist and discuss the increased interest in the body and its relation to a more and more virtual reality. I make links between ancient body modifications and human enhancement within new technology and throughout the paper I discuss my work in relation to other artists work and theorists relating to visual practices.

    Treasures in Transition: -On Connecting to Stone2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The things we have an intimate connection to, handle, collect, and move around with us, are treasures that we need to hold on to. They are important in coping with the balance of movement and stability in a fast-changing world. This project is an investigation of the relationship between people and objects through the making and handling of stones. I explore why and how we connect intimately with physical objects, how they become treasures to us and what it means. Through digging into the stones, connecting to their story of endurance, change and solidity, and eventually letting them go, I explore the role of touching and paying attention, in making and relating to objects and transformation. The stone objects are made from pieces of rock I have collected while travelling. All of them have been transformed by human hands before I picked them out, and many have been given out and then returned to me. Through this ongoing process of transformation and physical encounters, it is becoming clear to me that connection is not only about solidity and stillness, but also about being part of the transformation. Stone as a material is both solid and changing. I aim to make objects of stone that attract and encourage people to engage with them – to experience the pleasure and groundedness that slowing down, zooming in and getting in touch can offer.

    With employing the intuitive method as the initial approach in my bachelor work, I seek to express what I feel but can not see. In my body and in the clay. In my thoughts and in the clay. A meeting of the hand and the thought in which the subconscious and conscious build in unison.

    My bachelor work has been a searching process with clay, where I’ve allowed my memories and my states of mind to color my work.

     My hands describe an alternative world from my subconscious and conscious states.

     A world in which nothing is what it seems.

    Do I want people to feel sorry for me? That is what I really don’t want! Have to look over how I formulate myself. But if I say, don’t feel sorry for me, I put words in the mouth of the receiver. How am I to formulate that I think it is right that it is hard, that my behavior leads to self-hatred. Self-hatred that I should feel to change.

    Vems hand är det som gör?: En systertext om konst/hantverk, klass, feminism och om viljan att ta strid2019Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Whose hand is making? And how can we understand craft practices in dialogue with society through making and objects? How do we understand objects that manifest resistance? This dissertation in artistic research explores craft practices within the fields of ceramics and textile, through the method and form of autoethnography, and on the basis of an intersectional perspective. It understands making as embodied experience and knowledge, conditioned, but not always bounded, by societal structures, and it documents the resistance against, and the resilience of, repressive structures, in dialogues and struggles where objects gain agency.

    It is an examination that moves between the bookishness of libraries and historical trajectories on the one hand and making as collective practice on the other, the latter represented in what this study defines as case studies of making. The study creates the term “together-making” to describe and analyse collective craft practice as simultaneously a method of research and of making as a potentially political and socially-conscious act.

    Through two case studies of making the study assembles an archive of willfulness. In the first case study of making, ceramic practice and historical objects emanating from feminist and anti-slavery movements, are explored through a process of together-making, putting together the exhibition From Pottery to Politics in 2016. In the actual exhibition, further ceramic objects from Swedish twentieth century come into play to re-direct the shape of the exhibition, exemplifying the ways in which this study understands objects as manifest, material politics inciting response.

    The second case study of making, takes off from the geographical area known as »de sju häraderna«: a centre for Swedish textile manufacture and home-based industry since the seventeenth century. Focusing on a group of local seamstresses who organized Sweden’s first women’s football series in the 1960s – Öxabäck IF – the study investigates textile objects in dialogue with society reflected through the textile history of labour and feminist political movements in the nineteenth and twentieth century. This case study also documents the process of research through together-making, and the exhibition Öxabäck IF – Without You no Tomorrow, 2016.

    This paper describes my work with a historical craft and my attempt to find new ways to look at it, work with it and present it. I use the embroidery technique Hardangersaum which is all white, and where selected threads of the woven fabric grid are removed while others are wrapped and embellished. The artistic research leans heavily on the traditional craft but tries to isolate it from its historical baggage. I turn my focus to the grid of the fabric and I present some viewpoints from Rosalind Krauss and Hannah B. Higgins. I describe questions of scale and presentation that have emerged and show how digital animation has played a major role in the development and the communication of the embroidery work.

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

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

    My body is a temple2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    On 5th June 2012, I woke up paralysed and in that moment my body became my enemy. I haven’t been able to trust it ever since. I’m afraid it might betray me again. I feel stuck inside it, and yet, I feel alienated from it. Now it’s time to reconcile, find peace. I’ll try to find this peace through wool, because wool is safe. It reminds me of my mom and reminds me of Iceland. Wool means home. In this project I want to confront my fear, the alienation from my body, and hopefully find beauty in it. I want to create a place where I feel as if I am surrounded by my own body, where I can look at it, touch it, and see that it’s not as frightening as I thought

    Abstract

    Saker som inte finns och saker som inte har hänt (II)

    Things that do not exist and things that haven´t happened (II)

    It feels like I have a bulb of glass around my head. I'm in the real world but still I am not. My head is in another dimension. I can see that my body is moving but the movement feels unreal and

    disconnected. Sounds are distorted – a sound from my head lies like a layer over all the sounds

    around me. To be in the real world but not belonging, a place where sounds and movements feel

    different and strange. It´s a quiet state, a secret panic that doesn’t show itself outwards. You must

    wait, it will eventually pass.

     

    My bachelor project is about a psychological state, which I call bathroom-psychosis. It’s about being

    traumatised by sexual abuse. My work is about what happens afterwards, when the trauma is not

    present. It’s about the human mind's ability to shut off and block difficult states but its lacking ability to take care of the mind fully. It’s a silent panic, turned

    inwards – inside the own body. It´s a secret. A feeling you must suffocate. It must be hidden.

    A monument to the flaws2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My work is a tribute to the disintegration of built environments, and the chaos and disturbance that it brings into the idea of what a city should look like.

    An ode to the ruins that are witnesses to destructive social and economic systems and that tell the stories of the life that once inhabited them.

    A comment and critique on humanities way of ruining everything: world that we live in and our self; a destructive behaviour that we refuse to admit we have, and desperately try to hide. We polish the façades and fake our appearance in order to keep the illusion.

    I am discussing the concept of ruin romanticism, comparing the garden ruins of the eighteenth century to the urban exploration of abandoned places of modern society, the fascination for what once was, but are no more and the different feelings these places might arouse.

    I describe how I through experiments with dying, deconstructed screen printing and distressing, manipulate fabrics to create an illusion of brick walls. And how I through experiments with display, sound and light explore solutions for creating the dystopic atmosphere of abandoned places in a textile installation.

    My biggest inspiration is the inevitable downfallof the urban landscape and I am romanticising the imperfections and the flaws. I take what is understood as ugly by the rules of aesthetics, make it beautiful, and put it on a pedestal.

    Abstract [sv]

    This essay and the work within describes my project where I have been investigating the possibilities to explore the material pewter through my craftsmanship as a glassblower. I've been trying to find new methods and expressions in my work by adding another material to my practice and questioning my own tradition as a glassblower and my perception of glass. Inspired by post humanist theories on materialism I have through a experimental approach developed a method of combining the two materials into objects or Hybrids.

    Within and Beyond: A collaboration by the Glass Craft duo BarroLevén2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this collaborative Craft Master project by Ulrika Barr and Kristina Levén, we have investigated how glass can affect an environment to create a space in between. A “Ma-space” that could offer a pause in the everyday life in relation to the public sphere. We have worked parallel with two expressions of glass in relation to a room. Rocks of Glass casted hot glass together with Foamglas and colors and Veils of Glass- fused window glass in leaded techniques. By using filming as a medium, projections brings out the inner world of the glass. Sound is another layer in the collage installation outcome.The collaboration has been from first idea and intuitive investigations in the workshop to the final installation.The material outcome is a unique expression for this Glass Craft duo called BarroLevén. The written part of the project includes both common and separate parts.

     19/10 – Field diary

    Waiting isn’t visible, but you can feel it. It cannot be touched but it can touch you. You can feel it in your body, all the way from your head and down to your toes. Waiting is impossible to lock down; it is fluent and floating between us. Waiting is between you and me, creating a room.

    With my work ”In Between” I am investigating the term waiting.

    Waiting is a big part of our daily life. We are waiting for new episodes of our favourite tv-shows, the laundry to dry, and the dinner to be ready. We are waiting for something to happen, something to change. The emotions concerning waiting can be filled with expectation, longing and joy, but also with anxiety and stomach pain.

    Waiting is something we do physically, by example, standing in line. But it is also psychological, a mental state. Waiting is a space where time is central. There is a void in waiting, a loneliness and passivity that I find interesting.

    Waiting is something that is taken for granted, something that just happens. Something that lures in the shadow of what is going to become. There are rooms for waiting, waiting rooms. Big parts of our lives are waiting rooms. What are we doing there, and what is important in waiting?

    I am interested in the space in between where time is on-going. Still it is like a vacuum, a borderless space where we spend so much time. What happens here and why is nothing happening?

    I have chosen to focus my embodied work on female waiting. The female body have layers of waiting, both physically but also mentally. It is important for me to enhance the history of women that have been waiting. Thanks to those women, who have been waiting in the shadow of someone, I have the opportunity to make this work. The making in waiting is important. In today’s society, that has become more and more traditional, we have forgotten this waiting. A waiting of change. A week ago women were marching all around the world for women’s rights. It is 2017 and we need to march for our rights? How long should we wait to live in an equal society, for all?

    ”Waiting is in our bodies” (Beckman 2009:110).

    I think the body is a good introduction to both corpus and jewellery. They both need a body to understand its function, just like waiting.

    In my work I see the waiting room, the in between, become my corpus as it function as a container for me, my thoughts and for waiting. Jewellery is an extension of my body as well as a way for me to communicate. I see the difference between corpus and jewellery in my work. With corpus I can show you the room of waiting, and with jewellery I can show you how waiting feels like.

    Heteronormen: Det är ju ändå nutid2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Heteronormativity is one of the most powerful norms in our society today, a norm that many take for granted as natural. Heteronormativity is seldom discussed, it often becomes a non-question. However, the effects can be substantial for those who are outside of the norm. In my work I am discussing these issues and how it affects every day life for queer people. The work consists of four art jewellery pieces, with the four titles discussing the subject: desire, activism, owning and adjusting.

    Jewellery is an old language that speaks about status, individuality and hierarchy. The wearing tells us so much about the person. A pin shows the wearers political views and diamonds shows status. We need to expand the field of jewellery in order to question what jewellery really is, so that we can use jewellery to widen the acceptance of the individual. I want to investigate and queer the relationship between jewellery, wearing and the body. I have worked with big and small object.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents my project of working with an inherited collection of textile materials. It also presents the links my work has to aspects of Femmage, the term coined by artists Miriam Schapiro and Melissa Meyer in the 1978 article Waste Not Want Not: An Inquiry into What Women Saved and Assembled-Femmage. Working with this textile tradition I explore ways in which to develop my own visual language, where intuition, play and rhythm are key methods and collage, appliqué and print are the main techniques.

    Fragments of Belonging2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My master work is an installation of hand embroidered images.

    The theme of my work has been the feeling of belonging to a new environment and the process of a place becoming a home. I explore the perception of a place and pick fragments to translate into embroidery.

    The key question is: how can I communicate a state of mind and perception of a place with embroidered images?

    With this body of work I also explore the hierarchy of places in a city. I use a large amount of hours working on one specific fragment and through the chosen slow technique I discuss the value of it.

    Grey Flowers2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents my master project Grey Flowers” which is an incarnation of a poetic metaphor to a ceramic flower sculpture. The project is an installation of crafted flowers as a strong symbol of a short lived moment which has now stopped for ages. This sculptural work is based on the notion of decadence of the 19th century and presents a new way which it can been interpreted.

    Ceramics, clay and firing processes are used as a methods of unpredictability and a “happy accident”. The main aim of the project is to create a feeling of abandonment by showing decaying and dying beauty. The sculptural work investigates the different aspects of the flower and its representation trying to show different approaches tothinking and working while telling about the same idea.
