    INSIDE/OUTSIDE – Landscape2019Other (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The interactive textile sculpture INSIDE/OUTSIDE questions the borders of the body through material form and movement. The form suggest and instructs the choreography and becomes a co-choreographer pushing the narrative further and opening up for interaction between bodies through its materiality. Exhibited at Skövde Art museum, 17 jan - 3 march 2019.

    Wear-thinking: enabling (e)motion2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper suggests shifting the focus from a visual aesthetic of the body to an aesthetics emerging form the experience of wearing. Historically the aesthetics of wearing has been mainly concerned with visual aspects of body; how dress looks on you/make your body look rather than how it feels and what it does with you. Building further on the notion somatic garment as introduced by Sally E Dean (2011) and somatic style as defined by Shusterman (2012) the project addresses the experience of wearing and its effect on our emotional state and as bodily aesthetics. It is a practical exploration contributing to a theoretical discussion. The findings result from an interdisciplinary study intersecting fashion design and choreography, explored through interactive installations and performances developed over the course of 2 years. In 4 performances, 4 workshops and 3 exhibitions nationally and internationally the tactile and informing potential of wearing has been investigated. The results suggest a particular kind of wear-thinking that affects the body aesthetics through how it imposes movement patterns, positioning, tempo and emotions and through this it affects not only the emotional state of mind body also the appearance of the body. In the study, movements that create well-being, presence and relaxation was enabled with help of the interactive installation.

    Time-based matter: suggesting new variables for space design2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Presently, digitalisation has moved beyond a desktop paradigm to one of ubiquitous computing; by introducing new possibilities and dynamic materials to various design fields, e.g. product design and architecture, it allows future spaces to be envisioned. Prior to being incorporated in the housing of the future, however, the hybrid character of computational materials raises questions with regard to the development of the appropriate design methods to allow them to be used in the production of space. Thus, merging physical and digital attributes in the material design process and expression not only enables a better understanding of materials through design, but also requires a cross-disciplinary methodology to be articulated in order to allow different perspectives on e.g. material, interaction, and architecture to interweave in the design process. Based on a practice-based research methodology, this paper proposes a cross-disciplinary framework where the notion of temporal scalability – enabled by the character of computation as a design material – is discussed in relation to form and material in architecture. The framework is illustrated by two different design examples, Repetition and Tactile Glow, and the methods behind their creation – merging time, material, and surface aesthetics – are discussed.

    Earthy textiles. Experiences from a joint Teaching Encounter between Textile Design and Architecture2017In: Cumulus REDO Conference Proceedings Design School Kolding 30 May – 2 June 2017 / [ed] Anne Louise Bang,Mette Mikkelsen, Anette Flinck, 2017, p. 236-251Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents experiences from a two-day teaching workshop where first year students in architecture meet with first year students in textile design for an assignment on building structures with textile, soil and plants designing for indoor gardening with the aim of inspiring for more sustainable lifestyles. The background is a research project on textile architecture with the objective of exploring this new field and to establish a platform for long-term collaboration between the disciplines of architecture and textile design. The paper addresses pedagogical challenges in the meeting between first-years students of different disciplines and traditions, but also in the meeting between research and undergraduate teaching. The students produced creative results but had difficulties in exploring the full complexity of the task. An evaluative discussion is based on observations, photo documentation, notes during group discussions, follow-up questionnaires among the students and reflections among involved researchers.

    Smells: olfactive dimension in designing textile architecture2017Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Designing with non-visual attributes challenges ways of representation. This research explores methods for designing with invisible materiality within the research practice, as well as ways of representation through textiles when designing spaces. Exploring textiles and smells within a space, the research program investigates spatial interactions.

    This research focuses on designing embodied experiences using tangible materials as expressions of smells. Through the spatial installations and performances Sight of smell, Touch of smell, and Smell, space, and body movement, haptics were explored as one of the methods of interaction with smells through textiles.

    Through the sense of touch, this research also investigates ways of revealing, activating, and disseminating smells within a space. Smells were purposely added through the methods of dyeing, coating, and printing to the textile materials that did not inherently embody any smells, As a result, tactile surfaces create non-visual expressions of smell. Further ideas of research in this area would explore another perspective of designing with smells in spaces. As an example, by designing textiles being smell absorbers, dividers, and re ectors, could compliment the spatial concepts and deals with the already existing smells in a living environment.

    In this licentiate thesis thinking through the olfactive dimension to design textiles is not only novel for the textile design eld; but also, its proposal for application in the spatial design is quite unique, and o ers a new dimension for spatial design.

    Expressing and Sensing Hybrid Materiality: Voluminous Interactive Architectural Substance2019In: TEI '19 Proceedings of the Thirteenth International Conference on Tangible, Embedded, and Embodied Interaction: Pages 483-489, Tempe, Arizona, USA — March 17 - 20, 2019, ACM New York, NY, USA ©2019, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this architectural research exploration, we challenge the notion of an interactive architectural surface as single-layered, two-dimensional interaction interface. Instead, we propose the notion of Interactive Voluminous Substance, which moves the interaction experience into four dimensions, shifting it from far-field, proximity-based interaction to a near-field, tactile one. We present four features of architectural expression that could potentially sustain the embodiment of this Substance: spatial positioning, geometry, expression, hybrid material composition and interaction design. If the future architectural interiors and exteriors are made from Voluminous Architectural Substance, how will it be to dwell with them? We propose two physical prototypes and two interaction stories as speculative objects probing this question.

    Pliant flesh2019Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Pliant Flesh is a piece built up with a semi-firm body onto which two layers of thinner skins are attached with electronics in between. Pressing hands onto it, it will answer pliantly however with some resistance being experienced as firm but not completely stiff. When touched the piece reacts with small vibrations and lights. The vibrations and lights are then spreading out following their own pattern. 

    In the Pliant Flesh the electronics are partially visible pointing out that architecture and the technology of a building could be merged and respond to peoples actions. The piece materializes questions on what it is to experience this hybridity. The black Pliant Flesh is a complementary work to the yellow greenish piece Soft Body.

    Soft Body2019Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The bowels of the piece are soft with encapsulated electronics that are enclosed by a silicon skin. When pressing hands onto it the hands sink into the body. From deep within there is a respond to the pressure of the hands, slow gentle vibrations of the inner building up interaction patterns that define the tangibility. 

    In the Soft Body the electronics are hidden and not clearly located. This fact together with the sense of a highly responsive and fluid material brings the Soft Body far away from what we are used to encounter within architecture of today. The piece materializes questions on what it is to experience highly tactile architecture with material and interaction inner substance and corporal connotation.
