    Consume/d: Konsumtionssamhället visualiserat2017Independent thesis Basic level (Higher Education Diploma (Fine Arts)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I det här projektet har jag som mål att bryta ner och visualisera ämnet konsumtionssamhälle med hjälp utav motion design. Mitt syfte är att skapa förståelse, diskussion och väcka tankar kring ett samhälle som ofta tas för givet. Genom research letar jag efter starka koncept att visualisera, jag bryter ner ämnet i tre kategorier (varför, effekter, lösningar). Resultatet är ett antal animationer som ska kunna ses individuellt eller som en helhet. Jag redovisar min process och återkopplar till projektet.

    a blob, a snap: A materialized revolt against the patriarchal structure, against everything women are being told to endure2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a personal project about a fed-up woman who sits down on the chair by the pottery wheel simply because she craves it. It is about conducting a non-result oriented design process. A process where the making, the closeness between the mind and hand, is both the research and mediation. It is a project that acknowledges the potential care has in relation to design, while it's dealing with the controversial aspects of a woman caring for herself. The project is a snap, a feminist snap, represented and materialized through the objects of clay. Where a collapsed bowl, a blob, becomes a materialized revolt against everything women are being told to endure. It is a project that brings design and poetry together. Aiming to explore how objects can gain agency and be in dialogue with society. How objects can materialize both the resistance against, and the result of, the patriarchal structure.

    Projektet Elda: Ett typsnitt och en undersökande arbetsprocess2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet Elda är ett undersökande arbete om det digitala verktyget och vilka kvalitets- aspekt det påverkar. Datorn som ett kreativt hjälpmedel inom formgivning är i dag ett självklart verktyg i designprocessen, men vad händer egentligen med designers personliga avtryck när formen blir digital? Undersökningsmetoden i detta subjektiva projekt är em- pirisk och består av designprocessen bakom typsnittet Elda, under hela projektets gång reflekterar jag tankar, form och litteratur mot varandra. Diskussionen består av min syn på den digitala grafiska produkten, yrkets egenvärde och mänsklig kommunikation.

    Villa krypin - Ett stort litet hus: Ett rörligt hem i miniformat med stor frihet2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis you can read about an alternative for the interior architecture of a Tiny house on wheels.

    It also explores tiny living as a possibility for some of us and looks at what a small accommodation can make for our environment, our economy and our behaviours.

     

    In my project, I have created the interior architecture of a tiny house for two people on wheels. The house is 14m2+ 4m2in the loft and it is designed for year-round-living. A tiny house is a home with a small environmental footprint that doesn’t take up more space than it really needs. In such a small home residents must evaluate and prioritize what is truly important to them. Nothing else will fit. Next time you move, move your entire home.

    Bordet och compact living: Effektiv yta i små lägenheter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Målet med detta projekt har varit att underlätta växlingen mellan arbete och vila för de som bor litet och arbetar i hemmet. Bakgrunden till detta är att vi idag har en stark bostadsbrist i Sverige och att det kommer behöva byggas fler små lägenheter. Produkter som är anpassade för mindre boyta kommer därför behöva tillverkas.

    Research har varit en stor del i projektet och innefattar användarundersökningar, compact living, bordets historia och hållbar produktion.

    Slutresultatet har blivit ett bord som passar till både arbete och återhämtning med möjlighet till miljöombyte och förvaring. Bordet består utav två bordskivor som användaren kan nyttja. Grundtanken är att användaren ska ha möjlighet att förvara sitt arbete utan att behöva plocka undan någonting och då fritt kunna använda den övre bordsskivan.

    Min förhoppning är att bordet får en lång livslängd och fungerar för olika livssituationer samt att användaren knyter an till produkten. Detta utifrån en hållbarhetsaspekt och som motreaktion mot konsumtionens slit-och-släng beteende.

    Blända Powerplay: Att dela makt och ansvar2018In: Konstkritik och konstpedagogik – hållbara framtidsperspektiv: Växjö 2 februari 2018, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Som konstnär och lektor i design vid Linnéuniversitetet är jag initiativtagare till konstprojektet Blända Power Play. I Blända Power utforskade jag, 8 konst-och designstudenter samt en konstpedagog/kurator Växjös ishockeyarena utifrån perspektivet makt och jämställdhet. Vår gemensamma kartläggning ledde till en iscensättning där allmänheten bjöds in att inta arenan den 17 december 2016, efter de nya förutsättningarna gruppen skapat. De runt 200 personer som besökte arenan fick ta på sig röda strumpor och ge sig ut på isen för att interagera med andra besökare och en installation av ljud, ljus och föremål. Metodiken i projektet har haft som ambition att sudda ut och kasta om ursprungliga roller för att bilda en mer jämställd situation. Processen har haft en framskjuten roll och allas kompetens och olika erfarenhethar varit viktig. Situationen skiljer sig på flera plan från den man befinner sig i som undervisande lärare på ett universitet. På universitetet är man hänvisad till olika incitament så som kursplaner och betygsättning vilket i sig skapar en struktur som styr process och resultat. Projektet har i sin form genererat många frågeställningar och intressanta aspekter som diskuteras och härleds till tendensen; The educational turn. Blända Power Play är också en del av ett större projekt som haft ett tydligt fokus på hur olika konstnärliga processer kan påverka och förändra frågor kring jämställdhet nu och framöver.

    Crafting Futures in Lebanese Refugee Camps: The Case of Burj El Barajneh Palestinian Camp2019In: FORMakademisk, ISSN 1890-9515, Vol. 12, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The initiative at the Burj El Barajneh camp is run by a network of local associations, and aims at improving living conditions, services, infrastructure and livelihoods for the inhabitants. Burj el Barajneh has a large number of active associations and many highly educated professionals. However, in this kind of complex hyperdense context any kind of change needs to be carefully considered, there are no simple recipes, and existing professional expertise does not necessarily match the specific conditions of the locality. By working with collective design and collaboration between the camp's inhabitants, it becomes possible to envisage larger coordinated efforts, and to solve issues that remain blocked at an individual level.

    Making a hybrid of Fraktur and Helvetica: Investigating typography's connection to power, from a historical perspective in a contemporary context2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout history and in today’s society, typography has been and still is without doubt a great part of communication. Behrens, an important designer from the modernist movement, believed that after architecture, typography provided “…the most characteristic picture of a period” and “…development of people”. Typography carries meaning and associations, built on the contexts and the design it is used in, that finally creates a typographic image.

    The Blackletter style Fraktur, and Helvetica were born to serve a purpose connected to power. Important for this research is to understand in detail, the origin of that power and its position: Blackletter portrays features of the Gothic architecture, expressing religious emotions and civic pride, intended for effective writing, and was predominant in religious and educational contexts. This improvement of writing was a necessity for the development of the society during the medieval times; for both educational and financial reasons.

    As Fraktur became a symbol of Germany, the today’s connotations towards oppression and Nazism were inevi­table as the Third Reich continued to use it until it was banned in 1941. Meanwhile, the post war modernism in the 20th Century, sought objectivity, simplicity and readability in their design, to erase any carried meaning or associations that could have a misleading effect on the information. This period of time paved way for a corporate culture, with approaches towards rationalist and function­alist methods, that expresses authority and reliability. Achieving brand recognition for a wide range of products and contexts was required by the graphic designers.

    Through workshops that document people’s associations and comments on the shapes and typographic images that both Helvetica and Fraktur create, and visual research made in forms of sketching and adding Fraktur features to signs of institutions and public sectors, I have investigated Fraktur’s tainted image of oppression and political sentiments with the help of Helvetica as the contemporary norm.

    HOLD: En undersökning i hur glas kan anpassas efter reumatikers behov.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats undersöker jag hur dricksglas i materialet glas kan anpassas för reumatiker. Syftet med studien är att titta på om jag kan finna alternativa lösningar på att det idag inte finns ett attraktivt alternativ för reumatiker vad det gäller glas. Jag utför min undersökning genom att designa ett antal olika exempel på glas och dessa testas senare av en testgrupp som består utav fyra av Reumatikerförbundets medlemmar i Göteborg. Uppsatsens resultat visar att tre av de glasen jag designat har särskilt potencial vad gäller behjälpliga former för reumatiker.

    Skifte: Ett atbete om föremåls värdeförändring och återupptäckande2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Nybro Bostads AB efterfrågade en utsmyckning av området kring deras nybyggnation av bostads området Grönskog. Jag såg en möjlighet att kombinera deras önskemål med att uppmärksamma de boende samt förbi passerande på ett av våra största problem för att skapa ett hållbart samhälle; de växande sopbergen samt utarmande konsumtion.

          Idag använder vi oss av föremål för att manifestera vår identitet. Vi kastar och köper nytt som aldrig förr, utan att fundera på varför vi ser somliga föremål vi redan har som skräp. Genom att skapa en ”bytarplattform” i Grönskogs miljöhus vill jag uppmärksamma de boende på att det föremål som blivit till skräp för dem, fortfarande kan ha ett värde för någon annan. På ”bytarplattformen” kan du ställa dit och ta de föremål du vill, det skapar en subtil interaktion mellan de boende i området.

          När de boende kliver in i miljöhuset står de inför valet av den box vars färg och form i samverkan med valet av boxens placering i rummet syftar till att på bästa sätt framhäva föremålet. De måste återupptäcka värdet i föremålet. Boxarna placeras in i de små fönstren och väggens tjocklek skapar hyllplanet. Fönstren är placerade i ett vågmönster och genom ljusflödet skapas ett sammanhang mellan rummet och omgivningen. Det blir ett skyltfönster för de boendes bidrag till ett mer hållbart samhälle.

    Snålandsstolen: Snåla with material resources2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a project about how the furniture industry could become more sustainable intheir waste handling. The project is based in Småland both geographically and interms of heritage and history in order to encourage locally produced products. Thecollaborators for this project are the two furniture companies Swedese andStrömslunds Snickerifabrik AB. Both companies have their production in Vaggeryd,Småland. Both companies are struggling with the waste that they produce. The aim ofthis project is to find a sustainable solution for their waste issue. In order to find asolution two theories are applied. The first one is industrial symbiosis which meansthat several industries can, by collaboration, profit from each other’s resources. Thesecond theory is circular economy which encourage remake, reuse or recycling of aproduct once it has reached its end of life. To prove that this solution would be possiblea hunting chair was made by combining the waste material that was gathered fromSwedese and Strömlunds. The decision to make a hunting chair was made to connectthe chair with the heritage of hunting and foresting in rural Småland. The making ofthe chair was different in the way that instead of that the designer would tell thematerial what was possible it was instead the material that decided the limitationsand possibilities. The final product fulfils its purpose and works perfectly for outdooractivities, even though some minor design decisions could have been changed. Theoutcome proves that Swedese and Strömslunds could benefit from working more withcircular economy and start cooperating in order to work as an industrial symbiosis.

    Dissecting as a Method in Micro-Utopianism2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This BA thesis is about an attempt to explore micro-utopianism through design, an investigation that seeks which driving forces come into play in a search for a better place. In comparison to conventional utopianism, I will give my insights about why micro-utopianism should instead be practiced as an alternative approach to the subject. It is more about the process, exploring, imagining and experimenting rather than constituting a perfect place. The way I chose to go about this was through participatory design, which is a discipline that involves the stakeholders throughout the whole design process and beyond. I will also talk about dissecting as a design method and how I tried this out to explore micro-utopianism. To do this, the participants and I conducted two workshops so that, together with the participants, we could have a space where our imagination could ‘gestalta’ (or ‘exterpret’) thoughts of critique and opportunities. The two workshops were targeting different age groups: in the first one mainly adults participated and the second workshop was with youth. This will give you an insight of how dissecting can be applied to stimulate the utopian impulse using the power of imagination.

    ‘Virtuell lek med sand och vatten’ är ett projekt i samarbete med HAGS Aneby AB. Syftet med lekredskapet är att reducera barns stillasittande vardag. Genom att koppla samman fysiskt stimulerande lek med möjligheterna inom de virtuella leksaksvärldarna är målet att underlätta övergången mellan de digitala, passiva spelaktiviteterna och mer fysiskt stimulerande aktiviteter. Med utgångspunkt i den klassiska sandlådan ville jag undersöka och utveckla sandlådans potential. Med lekredskapets möjligheter till varierad aktivitet och rörelse, samt ramen och sandens höjdanpassning är målet att bjuda in en större bredd av besökare och bland annat öka tillgängligheten för vuxna och besökare med funktionshinder.

    Love, Growth together: Service design for a sustainable lifestyle2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays, millennials living in megacities are facing numerous issues. Most of them are currently experiencing an unsustainable lifestyle. Since this social group is destined to grow in number in the future years, its living status will strongly affect the development of sustainable cities. High frequency relocation, limited savings and lack of time are some of the Millennials’ main issues. Create appropriate solutions to their problems is therefore crucial for a sustainable development. The project aims to investigate Millennials daily life conditions through a human-needs approach performing and, at the same time analyze the possible business-based services that can help this social group to live more sustainable. This has been done through three needs-based service design methodologies that allowed to identify the reasons behind this social phenomenon: a day in life, questionnaires and phone interviews. Furthermore, a co-creation workshop allowed to investigate possible interactions between businesses realities and millennials.

    This project results demonstrate that there is a need of Business to Customers services which can contribute at the same time to create a sustainable lifestyle and to reduce the environmental impact of the contemporary consumerism-based society. Finally a concept of a product-based reuse service is for this reason developed considering the role of product life cycle in contemporary sustainable issues. To conclude, the importance of a needs-base approach to generate innovative solutions within the topic of service design is highlighted.

    The Future Is Present: Designing Time for Sustainable Change2017In: 11th International Conference on Design Principles & Practices: Design for the Global Village, Champaign, IL: Common Ground Research Networks , 2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In matters of teaching design for sustainable change, we are still in a situation that requires us to break new ground. New sets of tools, methods, and criteria are needed. One important criterion is the aspect of temporality. Not thinking about design's long-term effects, pushing acceleration, and neglecting the future have been a major cause of our unsustainable present. Still time is not commonly addressed in design education. To work with time offers several exciting possibilities. One is to extend the focus onto the entire life cycle of an artefact, exploring technical solutions and systems; another is to address aspects of planning for an unpredictable future. The third, which is at the core of my research, is to focus on design as a process rather than an object, and to design time itself. Design is what it makes possible, what it allows for, not what shape or finish it has. My research, which taken place through work with students and staff at the Department of Design, hopes to inspire new ways of working with sustainability within design educations.

    Pedagogy for teaching design – with an emphasis on sustainable design2013In: Design learning for tomorrow: design education from kindergarten to PhD, 2013, p. 1451-1465Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching sustainability is not solely a question of providing relevant information; it is foremost about training students to meet the challenges of tomorrow. In design this can mean to shift the focus from material, form and function towards systems, correlation and time – a process supported both by how we teach as well as what we teach. But pedagogy still seems to be treated like a poor cousin to the more important design knowledge. This  made us curious about the correlation between pedagogy and teaching design for sustainable change.

    By applying a study of Eilam and Trop (2011) onto the curriculum of an undergraduate design programme and through interviews with students we investigated the underlying pedagogy. Eilam and Trop had identified four pedagogical components that supported a holistic learning experience in their study.

    It proves more fruitful to incorporate sustainability wholeheartedly in a programme, instead of teaching it as a separate course. Pedagogies like emotional learning in realistic design projects and multidimensional learning in theoretical courses support an education for sustainable change and prepare students to meet the challenges of tomorrow without missing their professional  development.

    Fika Living: A sharing multifunctional furniture for single person households2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The start point of this project is the research of single person household. According to a presentation from the Swedish government, in Sweden, the family structure is changing as time goes by. After 40 years, there will be more than 40% of household are single person households.

    In addition, The project aims to create a sharing furniture, which used in living room, for young single person households. By using this furniture, they can enjoy the time being alone at home and also enjoy the leisure time with others, for example, through the Swedish social phenomena - fika.

    The delineation of study and research of my project is furniture design towards single person households and fika. The theories I applied include sustainability, life cycle, human needs, and design methodologies.

    Sustainable design put sustainable development theory into the design process, let the ecological environment and economic development connected as an the reciprocal causation. It lead to the use of energy resources effectively, and reduce the environmental pollution to the lower degree.

    To achieve sustainable design theory, each steps within product life cycle need to be considered in a sustainable development way. Sustainable design principles not only refer to the design process, also stressed in engineering process, the production process, the sales process, the use process, the storage process, the maintenance/repair process and retirement process, to reduce resource consumption, to build a new production and consumption oriented concepts to achieve sustainable design.

    The main practical methodology within the entire project and process is participatory design. Participatory design encourages all the users to directly design by using the simple tools, then do creative jobs by themselves and make own improvements during the process of practice. Furthermore, the participatory design can promote the users to realize the true value of designers, and finally they can also enjoy the conveniences which are brought by these designs.

    Designing sustainable innovations: Opportunities for new life cycles within the furniture industry2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Linear Economy cannot any longer be sustained by the eco-system: virgin resources are limited and destined to terminate soon if the contemporary production and consumption model will be maintained. For this reason, in the last few years Circular Economy has become an increasingly discussed topic worldwide. Through the adoption of strategies that close-the-loop of the traditional linear production system, Circular Economy aims to find solutions that can create a balance between economy, society and environment. This study aims to provide a holistic overview on the main theories and strategies that can ease a business transition to a Circular Economy model, to analyse challenges and opportunities connected to this conversion and to present a concrete tool developed for this purpose. The Life Cycle Design theory is here discussed and contextualised within the furniture industry reality since this study has been executed in collaboration with IKEA, the company case study of this thesis. An academic and professional literature review have been performed in order to gather information about theory and practice related to the implementation of strategies needed by a Circular Economy: product disassembly, recovery, reuse, refurbish, recycle and remanufacturing. The professional literature reviewed point out that the implementation of a circular model can lead to economic advantages and growth’s opportunities for manufacturers in various economic sectors. The implementation of Circular Economy in the furniture industry seems to be in its early stages and it mainly focus, with few exception, on recycling rather than on the more effective reuse, refurbish or remanufacturing operations. This study points out the two main issues that the furniture manufacturers need to solve in order to enable the implementation of more effective circular strategies: product disassembly and recovery. Furthermore, the need of an innovative and holistic approach is discussed with particular emphasis on the importance of a systemic thinking that enable organisation to create their own identity and objectives in relation to the Circular Economy model. The importance of a system that connects and coordinate the sustainable efforts and aims for new products and services is therefore highlighted, suggested and deeply considered in the development of the tool proposed. To conclude, a comparison between two IKEA products (the sofas Söderhamn and Knopparp) was performed to identify the role of the products’ design and development in relation with the implementation of a Circular Economy model. The products were briefly technically analysed and then a comparison between a linear and a circular end-of-life cycle scenario has been represented.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta examensprojekt har varit att ta fram en ny typ av flytvästlåda som skall brukas inom sjöindustrin. Utgångspunkten har varit ett samarbete med två studenter från sjöfartskolan. Mina samarbetspartners behövde hjälp att utveckla iden om en flytvästlåda som kollapsar under ytan och släpper upp flytvästarna till ytan vid en förlisning till havs. Detta med hjälp av en hydrostatisk frigörare

     

    I min process har jag gjort observationer på vilken roll flytvästlådan har på fartyg idag, hur den används, var den står och hur den förhåller sig till andra typer av säkerhetsutrustning. Jag har även tittat på hur en människa fungerar och handlar i en nödsituation och vilka behov som behöver uppfyllas.

    Andra metoder som jag har använt har varit intervjuer med personer som arbetar med säkerhetsfrågor på fartyg och ITK (Identity Tool Kit) för att ytterligare få förståelse för hur lådan behöver utformas.

     

    Resultatet blev en flytvästlåda där inspiration har hämtats dels från räddningsutrustning såsom livbåtar, livbojar, brandutrustning och dels från den marina miljön ombord på ett fartyg. Flytvästlådan är ett svar på behovet av att snabbt kunna identifiera var man hittar flytvästar i en nödsituation. Lådan ska betraktas som en del av säkerhetsutrustningen snarare än en plats för förvaring av den. Genom att tydligare synliggöra att det finns flytvästar ombord samt genom att vara tydlig med var de finns kan känslan av trygghet ombord ökas för passagerare och besättningsmän.

    Hacking the loop: How to encourage consumers to upcycle their clothes in order to reduce consumer fashion waste and lessen the environmental impact of fast fashion?2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The core of the project lies in upcycling. From the start of the research, I wanted to find new creative ways of upcycling garments and textiles.However, upcycling is a part of a greater whole which deals with addressing the problem of fashion waste. It gives new value to the clothes and prolongs the life span of the clothes. It is a craftivism act since it plugs into an existing system and shapes it towards a more sustainable direction.

    Thus this project wanted to take a larger approach and include consumers into the process. The purpose of the project was to explore one of the ways to encourage consumers to upcycle their clothes. This was done through an upcycling workshop. In the upcycling workshop, the consumer visualized the way they want their clothes to be upcycled. Their garments were then upcycled using DIY methods such as stitching, patching, and painting. The process was recorded in details. The whole process was then translated into a craftivist zine. The zine demonstrates how to do your own upcycling workshop and how to upcycle three garments. The upcycling workshop and the zine want to encourage the consumer to upcycle by giving them the necessary skills to do so.

    Advancing Tactical Urbanism: How placemaking and cosmopolitics generate social sustainability enhancing tactical urbanism2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Placemaking is a collaborative approach to redesigning spaces into places that improve their community value. Placemaking practices claim to be quick and easy to implement which is true in comparison to government level plans and policies but do not appear quick at an individual level. Tactical urbanism tackles the problem of slow change with a bottom up process that allows for fast changes to urban environments that can be conducted at an individual level. The spaces addressed by tactical urbanism are spaces that do not work to their intended use; they are underused, empty, or unmaintained. These spaces can vary in size and type. They can exist within a timeframe that is shorter than a change can occur from a quick placemaking practice hence why tactical urbanism becomes the appropriate response. Many of these places require responsive and swift action if they are sought to be improved. The spaces and designs that are tandem often have lasting positive effects in their communities. Concepts from cosmopolitics will be tied with placemaking principles to see if they are able to enhance and bring another element to tactical urbanism. The combination of these elements will aim to create care in relationships between humans and place. This report will explore how placemaking principles, cosmopolitics and tactical urbanismcan be used to create meaning and sustainabilityin spaces making them great places. Experimental interventions are used to put these concepts into practice. The interventions are focused at several locations around Linnaeus University campus.

    Quadro: Sidobordet som blev podium för identitet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In my senior project I work with the unseen furniture: the side table. The name, Quadro, is a combination of the italian word quattro that means four and the latin word ”quadratum” or ”quadratus.”  After conducting an analysis of different side tables, I concluded that the side table's function is primarily to elevate other artifacts. I draw connections to the creation of identity through consumption and have created a sidetble through combining furniture design and conceptual design. The project was finalized with a survey to see if identity is visible through the selection of artifacts.

    Me, Myself and I: Designing a space for students to self-reflect  through self-portraiture.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Project focused on self-reflection and insight, linking these processes to an artistic one – painting. As a way to respond to the research question: Does self-portraiture have the potential to guide us through self-reflection and insight? Workshops combining art and ways of thinking were designed and facilitated by the author, with the aim of improving the self-reflection and insight of students at LNU, based on theories of brain function and thinking. Using the workshop format, the author guided the participants through an experience of introspection through painting self-portraits. Areas of design included workshop, collaborative and critical design. A simple three-step design process was employed to create the Project, focusing on What, How and Why. Next steps included prototyping, designing the questionnaires which students completed, designing the art workshops, and advertising the workshops across campus. Results included nine respondents to questionnaires, four participants in the final workshop, and an array of findings regarding the self-reflection process and insight experienced by students through the design process. Although limitations were experienced, including a small number of participants, the results of combining self-portraiture and self-reflection and insight were mainly positive. It was concluded that this process could be proposed as a means to enhance self-reflection amongst students. Recommendations from the workshops included scaling up the process to include greater numbers of students and reaching an agreement with LNU to hold periodic self-portraiture workshops throughout the academic year, to enhance students’ self-reflection, insight and art skills. The author concluded that by holding workshops to paint self-portraits, along with exercises in self-reflection and insight, she had created a safe space for reflection. In future, students could be provided with guidance and support to use art as a platform for improving Self-reflection and insight, and at the same time enhance their art skills and potentially improve their well-being.

    Reasons of the Heart: Art and the shaping of modern politics2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the advent of what Germain Bazin famously described as the “museum age”, many have argued  that “art”, as a mode of creative production rooted in aesthetics, has become increasingly rarified, institutionalized and entangled in the politics and sociology of taste, making it a poor medium for critical appraisal of social or political issues. Drawing primarily on the history of the development of modern art, Terry Eagleton’s thesis on the advent of the aesthetic as a philosophical category advanced in The Ideology of the Aesthetic, and modern theories of mind which root rationality in the senses, I will argue that, notwithstanding the undisputed “entertainment” value of art, and its commercialization, the differentiation between aesthetic-­‐artistic knowledge and rational-­‐scientific knowledge might not be so simple to sustain, and that art thus serves a fundamental, if often unnoticed function in shaping social and political values in the contemporary world.

    Erika Lagerbielke: Form för alla sinnen2018Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Blått är havets och himlens färg, oändlig och ogripbar. Det finns styrka och intensitet i den blå färgen, liksom det finns lugn och vemod. Så inleds boken "Erika Lagerbielke - Form för alla sinnen" som är en nära skildring av Erika Lagerbielkes verk och verksamhet. Boken är ett samtidsdokument som syftar till att bidra till nya insikter i konstnärliga processer, modern designhistoria samt glasets kulturella och industriella utveckling i Sverige. Flera av Lagerbielkes viktigaste projekt belyses genom att unikt material sammanställs till berättelser från ateljén och glasbruken som ger nya perspektiv på kända designobjekt.

    Erika Lagerbielkes forskning vid Linnéuniversitetet sker ofta i korssamverkan med hennes designpraktik. Exempelvis har hennes forskning om betydelsen av design för måltidupplevelsen stora synergier med hennes arbete med design av vinglas som förhöjer dryckesupplevelsen (servisen Difference). Hennes forskningsprojekt Eternal Glass (i samverkan med RISE Glass) om återvinning av glas har sitt ursprung i design- och kommunikationsprojektet Oändlighet, som var ett samarbete med Ryds Bilglas och Kosta glasbruk. Boken är ett berättande och samtidigt reflekterande.

    Exempel på projekt är:

    Kronprinsessparets Bröllopsservis, gåvan från Sveriges riksdag och regering

    Linnéuniversitetets Rektorskedja

    Innovationen Intermezzo

    Blått och andra färger, om konstglas

    Eternal Glass, forskningsprojekt om glas i cirkulär ekonomi
