    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.

    NOT ON THE FABRIC BUT IN THE FABRIC: hardanger embroidery, animation and the grid2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    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.

    Vinterskörd2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Utgångspunkten i detta projekt har varit att skapa en inredningsdetalj till en specifik plats och kund och att göra det på ett så miljövänligt sätt som möjligt. Min kund är ett bageri och kafe vars koncept är att använda sig av lokala och ekologiska råvaror. Konceptet och kafeets befintliga inredning har påverkat min gestaltning. Jag har valt att fokusera på vass som material och skapat en vävd vägg av vass som fungerar som skiljevägg eller väggbonad och som är funktionell och framför allt dekorativ. Genom processen har jag tagit olika val baserade på min vilja att arbeta miljövänligt. Du får ta del av min arbetsmetod där jag genom hantverket provar mig fram till det slutgiltiga objektet och samtidigt lär mig om materialets kvalitéer och historia.

    AMEH JAG DÅ!?: En mönsterkollektion och ett litet rop på hjälp2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Med utgångspunkt från boken Omforma : Nya strukturer för designbranschen, har jag undersökt arbetssituationen för en mönsterdesigner 2017 och hur det går att koppla till svensk mönsterhistoria. Ett exempel jag tittar närmare på är kollektionen Signerad textil som visades på NK 1954. Jag reflekterar också över samtidens besatthet av mönster från 50- och 60-talet och vad det kan skapa för konsekvenser för nu verksamma formgivare. 

    I det gestaltande arbetet har jag skapat en varierad mönsterkollektion där jag försöker reflektera och utmana min egen designprocess.

    Swimming Pool2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My project started with two words: Swimming Pool. They came to me through a song, Banshee Beat by Animal Collective (2005). To me, their music is mystical, abstract, unpredictable and also metaphorical. So I started to think about if a swimming pool could be something more than just an open container filled with water. After some thinking I came to the conclusion that it could be a metaphor for something calm, quiet and dreamy. However, I’m not sure but my aim is not to get to a specific answer through this project. 

    I’ll turn the metaphor into a textile work that portrays what you see when you’re standing at the edge of the swimming pool; a distorted picture of a grid, the bottom of the pool. I’ll be working with dyeing, patchwork and quilting. The textile craft is important in this project because of how relaxed and calm I get by doing things with my hands. 

    The questions I’m asking myself are how I can express the metaphor through my work? What if my interpretation is too wide? Is it possible for me to create a tactile and calm feeling without the physical touch?

    Body anagram2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    BODY ANAGRAM is a number of hand stitched sculptures, a growing collection of mountable body parts that can be organized and screwed together in different ways. The process of stitching and sculpting bodies is metaphorically compared to the art of anagrams, wordplays. Their common reversibility between recognition and destruction is discussed. Psychological perspectives on intersubjective, as well as subject-object relationships are used to explain what can happen when people and sculptures meet.

    How can common emotional experiences of relationships be embodied through human-like textile sculptures? This question is processed in video documentations of people interacting with the sewn body parts. These meetings as well as collaborations around the making of the film, “Your hands and their hands”, are explored further in this paper.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I outline my research into material humour through designing and making cut pile rugs.  Cut pile rugs are textiles that have yarn at a right angle to the surface of the cloth creating a ‘pile,' this can be produced by knotting by hand, or tufting using a tufting gun.  In this project I translate the patterns into tufted carpets to investigate how the patterns change when they are transformed into three dimensional objects.  Alongside this technical research I  study the use of material humour in the works of conceptual design studios; Front, Uglycute and Droog to explore the use of comedic effects in design.  This paper will develop these investigations by documenting the creation of samples and rugs and their presentation at the Konstfack 2016 Spring exhibition.

    Abstract [en]

    Ögonblicksbilder - A discussion about the interactive and choreographic relation between body and spatial object.

    The eye, an organ with many sections, has a significant role in today’s society. We can choose what is received (news, surroundings, people) and what we turn a blind eye to. The gaze is somewhat physical and the sections within the eye define the space around us. Body and space are in constant relation to one another, choreographed by each other. Together they create a common sphere.

    Abstract [en]

    Illustrated exam paper for Josefin Tingvalls project Soft Society. Which is about investigating through cloth and textile our urban surrounding. The core question ; if I go out in an urban area and use textile as a recordmaterial, what traces and stories will I bring back? By looking at textileas a matter, craft and as a philosophical starting point in urban areas, what can it tell about our surrounding and our society? In the three mainchapters of the paper, Tingvall reflects upon important themes such as wandering and spectating, also exhibiting of process based craft, textilein urban areas and matter-based dyes and their relation to us.

    The Patchwork-Quilter as the Storyteller: MY DEAD DOG!2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Objects can evoke our most vivid memories and sensory emotions, through the stories that have been engraved into them across their lifetime. Throughout history, patchwork-quilting has been used to tell stories, hide messages and hold histories. They are seen as objects of warmth, comfort and security, inanimate extensions of ourselves that store our most complex sentiments and memories- becoming heirlooms that are kept in the families and communities for generations, preserving our histories and material culture. 

     

    I intend to explore the inseparable relationship between craft and narrative within quilts, whilst re-imagining the quilts forms and functions in order to communicate stories more vividly. To do so I will use my memories of My Dead Dog, Henry, to illustrate narratives and embed them into quilted objects to stage as a tableau of artifacts. I intend to encourage the viewer to realise the imagined, through a haptic experience of my material world, whilst simultaneously creating my own heirlooms that can be passed down so my stories are not forgotten.

    Being In Touch, The Important Thing For Folks To Be2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project considers the potential impact of learning relations between hobby craft makers and formally educated makers. It questions how the craft based relationship of a formally educated artist and a self taught/amatuer maker can be renegotiated and implemented in a broader learning context. The artistic research aims to propose that a facet of ‘new knowledge’ in the field and future of contemporary art and craft production is one of togetherness; by embracing discomfort and the unfamiliar to affirm and reveal the knowns and unknowns of one's own practice and field. The question is considered in discussion with social/relational art practices, amatuer craft theory and gift theory. The project culminates both in this paper and an exhibition piece as part of Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design Spring Exhibition 2016.

    Fresh Face >>> Body 2.0: Handens minne + Digitala dimensioner2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    "My goal with this project is to digital print a Science Fiction inspired print on fabric that provides an optical illusion with lenticular technology. The fabric will be presented with five curtain drapings, two in motion with motorized movable suspensions.

    The Print design is going to be created with a science fiction/cyberpunk/transhumanism atmosphere. I’m inspired by the relation between body and machine. The textile field is drawn to smart textiles where the idea of function, artificial intelligence and virtual reality is central. There are already textiles that are designed to react to the wearers needs. And soon it will be possible for the online shopper to purchase customized clothes by recreating themselves as an avatar through 3Dscanning. With this as inspiration my digital print is designed.

    Technically I will produce a fabric using the lenticular technology that creates an optical illusion. In order to produce the fabric, I need to work with the prints in Photoshop and then digitally print them on fabric. So that the fabric could be able to obtain an optical effect, a lens made of silicone will be laminated on top. The silicone lens is cast in a form which is sketched and made as a model in Rhino and then cut out from a metal block with a milling cutter.

    The composition will be presented as five curtain drapings. Two of them moves with electric winches. They will hang separately but communicate in a spatial constellation. Like organs the draperies spread out and fall back again. Here, as in the print design, the body and the machine will be crucial. The focus is also on the fabric's tactile character, drama and historical heritage."
