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

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

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

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

    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.

    The Moving Generation2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    My degree project consisted of both a creative and a written part. My work was about making an animated short film. For 10 weeks, I animated a movie called The Comet. A film about longing, missing and the feeling of loneliness. In addition, I also wrote a report describing my process, inspiration, references, results and thoughts about my exhibition in connection with the work.

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

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

    Abstract [en]

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

    Abstract [en]

    Never Alone: Picture Book into VR

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

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

    Och just när vi smälter ihop skiljs vi åt (And just as we melt together we part): visual poetry on non-nuclear family living2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 60 credits / 90 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    Abstract [en]

    Knowing is often framed by language; this moving arrangement of parts helps us make sense of our surround, rendering possible ways of relating, acting, and responding. Situated yet unsettled, the play of language enables us to mediate distances, to make sense of our frames while seeking other ways of being with and for. Through dialogue, these works attempt to reroute and reorient so that we may learn to see each other — and to see ourselves.

    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.

    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.

    On top of the mountain: The ascendant path of success2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

       An analogy between the social idea of success and the concept: on top of the mountain, using as an interactive and participative method, the activity of climbing mountains. What is success? Why do we climb the mountain? Is there enough space at the top? I try to answer these questions, by sharing thoughts and experiences with other mountain climbers, aiming to find an alternative to values like conquest, dominance, competition, independence and painful sacrifice. Do I have to play the hero to go to the top?These values reproduce a hierarchical structure that is deeply rooted in the patriarchal society, starting with our visual conceptualization of the bottom and the top, ideas on status and an oppressive one-way relationship with nature and other human nature. The final result is a short Film, which aims to reproduce a feeling that has to do with sisterhood, togetherness, care, reciprocity, equality, and gratefulness; based on the utopic idea of interdependence and thinking the top as a transitional space.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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]

    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’.

    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.

    En flugskit på kartan2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    My master project has resulted in an 80 page graphic novel. The graphic novel is about a dream, ”the first snow”, that is created in the heart of an animal during a dark month of December in Stockholm. The dream awakens in the animal when she gets inspiration from different commercials around the city and in her smart phone. The final version of the graphic novel was printed into a book and could be read on the spring exhibition. I also painted a wallpainting with motifs from the graphic novel at the exhibtion.

    Roots and Routes2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The project Roots and Routes is an intergenerational narrative connecting three locations: London, Mandeville and Stockholm, focusing primarily on the histories of women and non-binary people. It looks at what affect it has on our sense of cultural identity to grow up in the diaspora, disconnected from the country of our parents or grandparents. Roots and Routes presents the search for a sense of belonging, whilst existing in the in-between.

    This report explores the different elements of the project, through text and image.

    Abstract [en]

    In a prospective post-work society, a select group of citizens participate in a cross-temporal project. As we follow along their journeys, questions arise. How does time move when it is no longer a commodity? What is design in the age of rampant robotics? How do we define creativity? What is wasted potential, and is it possible to be a failure? Most importantly, can fiction teach us anything about reality?

    Vänner med (marknadsmässiga) fördelar2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En trend jag sett i reklam och utformning av produkter (vissa av dessa konsumerar jag såklart själv) är ett tydligt mänskligt tilltal, jag är målgruppen och jag blir glad när någon är snäll mot mig.  Mycket grejer i utförande, tilltal och estetik liknar sånt man skulle kunna hitta om man utifrån tittar på en autonom vänsterrörelse eller DIY-rörelse. Stark, slagordsliknande text, underdogpositionerande, text och bild gjort i nåt som liknar potatistryck eller andra enklare grafiktryck man kan göra själv i hemmet, tvångsmässigt användande av ordet revolution.Det blir någon slags schablonbild av vad dom tycker att en autonom vänsterrörelse är, eller en schablonbild av vad dom tycker att DIY är och hur det ser ut. Dom försöker härma och efterlikna så himla, himla mycket men når inte riktigt dit.

    Istället för att prata om att reklam är något dåligt, när till och med reklamen själv ofta säger att reklam är något dåligt som man är trött på, vill jag göra på ett annat sätt. Istället för att prata om att jag är arg på hela approprieringsprocessen, att det kanske trubbar något fint och viktigt motstånd eller kamratskap som finns och måste få finnas, är att kanske göra likadant som ”dom” gör. Jag gör mitt bästa med att anamma ”deras” språk, ”deras” stelsnälla låtsade kompistilltal, fräschör, smygnationalism, kontorsvärld, corporate storytelling. Jag kommer försöka så himla, himla mycket men jag kommer inte riktigt nå dit.

    I mitt arbete frågar jag mig hur jag kan göra något skojigt med något jag tycker är jobbigt? Det jobbiga är alltså när företag snor uttryck och anda från gräsrotsrörelser och aktiviströrelser för att sälja mer prylar. Syftet är alltså att det ska bli något skojigt.

    Narrativa processer i mellanrum: serieberättandets praktik2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This project investigates storytelling in drawn image and text from the perspective of the graphic novelist, and it does it through practice based research.

     

    My research method is to interview other graphic storytellers about their working methods and processes when telling stories through comics, and then try to use these methods and processes when making my own stories. In this way I hope to make visible some of the knowledge hidden inside a working method and look at what kind of stories, storytelling and reader interaction a working method can enable.

     

    When drawn image meets text in the head of a reader, information occurs, information that was not present in the image or the text alone. Here time, space, movement, sound and full inner lives of characters might suddenly occur. I look at the comics that I have made with the help of cognitive theories of embodiment and Theory Of Mind, to try to understand what happens in the invisible space between image and text; frame and frame; and reader and graphic storyteller. In this way I hope to both widen and deepen the knowledge of how graphic storytellers can relate and make use of the readers co-creation in their work.

    Narrative processes in the interspace: Investigating the practice of graphic storytelling2019In: Konstfack Research Week: 28 Jan. - 1 Feb. 2019, Stockholm: Konstfack , 2019, p. 15-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This practice-based research project looks at graphic storytelling from a maker’s perspective. When drawn images and text, frame and frame meet in the head of the reader, new information occurs that does not exist on the paper. Time, space, movements, sound, inner lives, relations and more appears here. How does the graphic storyteller relate to this occurrence? How do they work with it?

    To gain insight into the tacit knowledge that graphic storytellers hold, Emma Rendel conducted interviews about individual working methods and attempted to use those methods in the making of her own stories. Because the “extra” information that she was interested in exists in the head of the readers, she looked into theories of how our cognitive abilities interact with a narrative and used these to analyse the resulting comics.
