    Urban education and segregation: the responses from young people2012In: European Educational Research Journal (online), ISSN 1474-9041, E-ISSN 1474-9041, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 45-57Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article takes as a starting point the segregation of urban areas and discusses schooling in the neighbourhoods typically associated with problems and challenges, in order to explore young people's responses to their schooling and social positions. Such responses include individual acts, such as rejecting further schooling or dismissing the local school in favour of prestigious ones, as well as the development of shared understandings and collective formations. The article focuses in particular on young people's responses through aesthetic practices, informal education and public political actions. Although research suggests that youths in poor areas are increasingly individualised and shows that schools provide them with little help to understand and act upon their circumstances in school, the analyses here also bring to light young people's rather strong belief in collective actions; students' formations of resistance groups and political knowledge appear as crucial resources, and, although scarce, teacher support and teaching about political actions appear as important.

    The precision of RSSI-fingerprinting based on connected Wi-Fi devices2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) fingerprinting is a popular technique in the fieldof indoor positioning. Many studies on the subject exist acknowledging Wi-Fi signal variationconnected to Wi-Fi signals, but does not discuss possible signal variation created byconnected devices nor consequential precision loss.Understanding more about the origins of signal variation in received signal strength indication(RSSI) fingerprinting would help deal with or prevent them as well as provide moreknowledge for applications based on such signals. Environments with a varying number ofconnected devices would benefit from knowing changes in localization precision resultingfrom the devices connecting and disconnecting from the access point because it wouldindicate whether workarounds for such circumstances would be necessary.To address this issue, the work presented here focuses on how the precision of RSSIfingerprinting vary given different levels of connected Wi-Fi devices. It was carried out byconducting real world experiments at times of low- and normal levels of connected devices toaccess points on two separate locations and evaluating precision changes between statedactivity levels. These experiments took place at the University of Borås as well as at Ericssonin Borås.Experimental findings indicate that the accuracy does deteriorate in higher levels of activitythan in low activity, even though not enough evidence to determine the precision ofdeterioration. The experiments thereby provide a foundation for location-based applicationsand services that can communicate the level of positional error that exist in differentenvironments which would make the users aware but also make the applications adaptaccordingly to different environments. Based on the precision achieved, we identify variousapplications that would benefit from our proposed model. These were applications that wouldtrack mobile resources, find immobile resources, find the movement flows of users as well asnavigation- and Wi-Fi coverage applications.Further research for investigating the exact correlation between access point stress andprecision loss is proposed to fully understand the implications connected devices have onRSSI fingerprinting.

    Påverkan av kommunikation mellan företag och kundsegment2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Området för denna studie är att studera kommunikation mellan företag och kunder. I studien har ett “fast fashion” företag används som exponent. Studien avgränsas till unga kvinnor 15-30 år då företaget har detta kundsegment som målgrupp.  Kommunikation är idag ett viktigt verktyg för företag att sända ut budskap. Den digitala utvecklingen kräver att företag använder digitala medier för att behålla och generera nya kunder. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur kommunikativa instrument kan påverka och optimera företagets specifika kundsegment. I studien analyseras hur budskapet når fram och hur den utsända signalen uppfattas, samt vilka strategier som används för att behålla kundsegmentet i takt med att detta ständigt utvecklas. Schramms kommunikationsmodell har använts som hjälpmedel och visar att signalen från konsument till företag är minst lika viktig som tvärtom. Målet med studien är att få svar genom att besvara tre utvalda forskningsfrågor; Hur uppfattas företagets kommunikativa instrument utav den specifika kundsegment? Hur gör företaget för att behålla sitt kundsegment? Hur kan de kommunikativa instrumenten förbättras i relation till kundsegmentets preferenser? Frågeställningarna besvaras med hjälp av insamlat empiriskt material där intervjuer, enkätundersökning samt passivt deltagande observationer har förts. Genom det framgår resultatet att det är viktigt att exponenten sänder ut signalen till rätt kundsegment. Slutsatsen är att konsten att behålla sitt kundsegment i den snabba förändringen inom “fast fashion”, är att ha kommunikation som den viktigaste pelaren och att veta till vilka den ska riktas mot.

    Patients as 'Safeguard' and Nurses as 'Substitute' in Home Health Care2009In: Nursing Ethics, ISSN 0969-7330, E-ISSN 1477-0989, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 219-230Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One aim of this study was to explore the role, or subject position, patients take in the care they receive from nurses in their own home. Another was to examine the subject position that patients say the nurses take when giving care to them in their own home. Ten interviews were analysed and interpreted according to a discourse analytical method. The findings show that patients constructed their subject position as ‘safeguard’, and the nurses’ subject position as ‘substitute’ for themselves. These subject positions provided the opportunities, and the obstacles, for the patients’ possibilities to receive care in their home. The subject positions described have ethical repercussions and illuminate that the patients put great demands on tailored care.

    Nurses as guests or professionals in home health care2008In: Nursing Ethics, ISSN 0969-7330, E-ISSN 1477-0989, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 371-383Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore and interpret the diverse subject of positions, or roles, that nurses construct when caring for patients in their own home. Ten interviews were analysed and interpreted using discourse analysis. The findings show that these nurses working in home care constructed two positions: `guest' and `professional'. They had to make a choice between these positions because it was impossible to be both at the same time. An ethics of care and an ethics of justice were present in these positions, both of which create diverse ethical appeals, that is, implicit demands to perform according to a guest or to a professional norm.

    Faktabokens roll i en digitaliserad skolvärld: Var söker elever information?2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to ascertain where pupils in primaryschool search for information when they have a specific question to answer. I also question how they explain their choice, how they perceive the results of their search process and what perceptions librarian and teachers hold regarding students' informationretrieval.

    I focus in particular on how the pupils’ made their choice: nonfiction books contra the Internet in order to discover whether orn ot Internet has, by and large, replaced nonfiction books for pupils.The empirical data was collected through interviews with fourpupils, their teacher and their school librarian. The material has beenanalysed and interpreted based upon Carol C. Kuhlthaus´ teachingmodel and previous research.

    The results of my study indicate that nonfiction books have lost theirr elevance in terms of pupils' information retrieval. Pupils’ firstchoice when searching for information is Internet. Howevernonfiction material has still an important role to play. Many slowreaders or readers who are generally uninterested in reading fiction choose to read nonfiction for pleasure. Reading nonfiction also improves reading skills and in particular reading comprehension. Moreover all pupils must learn how to read for information and to understand what they are reading before they are able to navigate the more advanced texts used on Internet. Thereby it is possible to explain a demand for well written nonfiction literature both now and in the future.

    E-handelns påverkan på distributionsföretag: En kvalitativ studie av distributionsföretag i Sverige2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    More consumers choose to shop online. Whether it is because of convenience or prices this increase has an impact on how retailing is managed and distributed. Customer demands change and the consumer has more power. This report aims to describe how an increase in e-commerce has affected and will continue to influence the distribution of retail goods nationally and how it affects the companies providing transportation of e-commerce goods. The report also discuss how the distribution companies act in response to these changes in the market and which areas that have been affected the most.

    The conclusions drawn from the report is that the increasing volume of goods from e-commerce have not currently affected the distribution companies significantly, however in the future changes are believed to be necessary in certain areas. The increase of e-commerce goods has contributed to a higher volume of goods for distribution companies to manage. These increased volumes bring additional costs to the most expensive part of the distribution, the last mile, by bringing more deliveries to the consumer’s home. Because of this increase in costs, the distribution companies need to increase their margins by offering consumers additional services. Additionally, the companies see a change in the customer demands. Customer demands on delivery service are increasing and the pressure on the distribution companies to have a high quality in their production increases.

    Today the volume is still too low to justify a heavy business development with costly investments to counter the increasing volume. These changes will probably be necessary in the future if the increase continues at the same rate. To increase the knowledge and evolve the delivery service is something that this report indicates to be important in the future.

    Run time safety analysis for automotive systems in an open and adaptive environment.2013In: SAFECOMP 2013 - Workshop ASCoMS ( Architecting Safety in Collaborative Mobile Systems) of the 32nd International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and Security, Sep 2013, Toulouse, France / [ed] Matthieu Roy, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cooperative vehicles are no longer fiction. A key factor is the ability for vehicles to exchange information with their environment. The shared information can be used to realize new functionalities, from virtual traffic lights to emergency braking, thus with potential to increase safety and efficiency of vehicle systems. However, external information has inherent uncertainties and this poses a threat to safety. In this paper we will discuss how to handle these uncertainties by use of dynamic safety contracts. We propose an extension to AUTomotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) which consists of a safety manager which actively enforces the safety rules described in such safety contract. We also propose to integrate the architecture of an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) station tightly to AUTOSAR. It is our hypothesis that such architecture provides a viable platform for run time safety assessment. Future research work is to evaluate what kind of safety assessments our system can be able to handle.

    Abstract [en]

    An ITS represents a Cyber-Physical System (CPS), which will involve information exchange at operational level as well as potential explicit collaboration between separate entities (systems of systems). Specific emphasis is required to manage the complexity and safety of such future CPS. In this paper we focus on model-based approaches for these purposes for analyzing and managing safety throughout the lifecycle of ITS. We argue that: (1) run-time risk assessment will be necessary for efficient ITS; (2) an information centric approach will be instrumental for future ITS to support all aspects of safety management – a “safety loop”; (3) a formal basis is required to deal with the large amounts of information present in an ITS. We elaborate these arguments and discuss what is required to support their realization.

    Poddradio på folkbibliotek: En innehållsanalytisk jämförande fallstudie av pionjärexemplen Cirkelpodden och Bibliotekspodden Solen 2013–20142015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to describe the genre of librarypodcasts that have emerged in Sweden since 2013.Through the overall design of a comparative multiplecasestudy, the two pioneering examples ofCirkelpodden and Bibliotekspodden Solen are beingdescribed and compared, in order to contribute to abetter understanding of what these radio productionsconsist of, on what reasons they have been establishedand finally what this practice based on more explicitjournalistic working methods might implicate for theprofession of the public librarian.Thirty-three programs of Cirkelpodden andBibliotekspodden Solen published during 2103–2014 andtwo semi-structured interviews with the librarians ofthe podcasts are analysed through quantitative contentanalysis and qualitative thematic analysis. Thetheoretical framework is principally based on WiebeBijker’s model of two different ways to perceivetechnology: the deterministic view as an autonomousforce, and the constructivist view as an instrumentcontrolled by man.The results show that the main reasons to adopt thisweb 2.0 media format was to improve the library’straditional ways to talk about books. Besidespresenting books and problematizing the inhold of it,the podcasts were used to enhance the job satisfactionand to promote the library. The main conclusion ofthe study is that the these library podcasts could beinterpreted as expressions of an ongoing movementfrom a traditional conveying role of the publiclibrarian, towards a more content producing role, inwhich the podcast is used as an strategic instrumentfor exposing the librarians expertise and for exertingliterary criticism.

    Abstract [en]

    The essay’s language is swedish.Our study is about motivation and dissatisfaction with employees and managers. The work ismore about what motivates people in the workplace and what makes them unhappy. Themotivation can be achieved through two types of rewards, monetary and non-monetaryrewards. Where monetary reward involves performance pay or a bonus and non-monetarymeans travel, equipment and other benefits. This is the most common form of reward systemwhose purpose is to create a high motivation to ensure the effectiveness of the business ororganization. The essay is based on Herzberg’s two-factor theory, which consists ofmotivation and hygiene factors. The problem that remains today is the companies are notready to raise the hygiene factors if they consider those that exist are already reasonable. Thismay mean that employees don’t feel motivated enough, which in turn leads to adissatisfaction at the workplace. Companies use reward system to recruit, motivate and retaincompetent employees to their organizations.In this paper, the question was: How the factors and rewards affect employees and managers,and which factors motivate and create displeasure at the workplace?Our purpose was to highlight the views of managers and employees what is important to themwhen it comes to motivation and hygiene factors and rewards. The aim is to have a betterinsight into the reward system’s functionality in the organization, how different rewards andfactors satisfy the employees.We have choser open unstructured interviews to work with because we want to create adeeper discussion about how important reward systems are for the respondents. Weinterviewed seven respondents, of which four are managers and three employees.In our study, we have come to the conclusion that managers and employees are satisfied withtheir monetary and non-monetary rewards and that they experience some dissatisfaction at theworkplace. The study also showed that factors like rarely getting feedback, bad workingconditions, work under pressure, bad relationships between colleagues and a lot ofresponsibility can in the future lead to employees getting tired of the job and that they canthen apply for work at new companies that have better reward systems.

    Continuity means "preserving a consistent whole" - A grounded theory study.2015In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 10, article id 29872Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Living with a chronic disease like chronic heart failure (CHF) results in disruptions, losses, and setbacks in the participants' daily lives that affect health and well-being. By using grounded theory method, we illuminate whether persons with CHF experience discontinuity in life and, if so, what helps them to preserve and strengthen continuity in their daily lives. Thirteen individual interviews and one group interview with five participants, aged 62 to 88 years, were carried out. Through data collection and data analysis, we constructed three concepts that make up a model illustrating the participants' experiences in daily life in relation to corporeality, temporality, and identity: experiences of discontinuity, recapturing approaches, and reconciliation. The first concept, experiences of discontinuity, was constructed from the following categories: the alienated body, the disrupted time, and the threatened self. The second concept, recapturing approaches, consists of categories with continuity creative constructions: repossessing the body, maintaining a façade, seizing the day, restoring the balance of time, and preserving self. These actions are intended to overcome problems and master changes in order to maintain balance in daily life through constructions that recreate normality and predictability. The third concept, reconciliation, was constructed from three categories: feel normal, set to adjust, and be positioned. These categories describe how the participants minimize their experiences of discontinuity by recapturing approaches in order to reconcile with various changes and maintain continuity in daily life. Our findings provide a fresh perspective on continuity that may contribute to the development of significant interventions in continuity of care for persons with CHF. However, continuity requires that healthcare systems support each patient's ability to manage change, reorientation, and adjustment to the new situation in order to make it easier for the patient to create and continue living their daily lives as they desire.

    Health-care encounters create both discontinuity and continuity in daily life when living with chronic heart failure - A grounded theory study.2015In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 10, no 1, article id 27775Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Living with chronic heart failure (CHF) often involves lifelong contact with health care, more or less frequently, depending on fluctuating health-generating disruptions in everyday life. To reduce the influence on continuity in life, health-care professionals should preferably focus on supporting patients in managing their daily lives, based on their perspective. The aim of this study was to describe how the interaction in health-care encounters contributes to either continuity or discontinuity in the daily life for persons with CHF. Interviews with 18 participants were carried out, using the grounded theory method, through data collection and analysis. Two core concepts were constructed from data which reveal a model that illuminates the characteristics of the encounters, the actions of health-care professionals and the normative discourse. Patient-centred agenda consists of the categories: "Experiencing a subordinate approach," "Objectifying during the encounter" and "Expected to be compliant." This describes how health-care professionals enhance discontinuity in daily life by using a paternalistic approach in the encounter. Person-centred agenda consists of the categories: "Experiencing an empowering approach," "Person-centredness during the encounter" and "Expected to be capable." It describes how participants perceive that health-care professionals enable them to deal with everyday life which enhances continuity. The findings highlight the importance of health-care professionals' attitudes and communication in encounters with patients. Health care must be designed to support and promote patients' own strategic thinking by strengthening their self-image to enhance continuity in everyday life. The experience of discontinuity is based on the prevailing health-care culture which focuses on disease and medical treatment and regards it as superior to the illness experience in an everyday life context. We therefore strongly suggest a paradigm shift in the health-care organisation and culture in order to support the patients in their efforts to live a meaningful, rich life, in spite of the chronic illness CHF.

    Specificera och kommunicera!: En studie i orsaken till uppkomsten av kvalitetsbrister hos produkter utvecklade i Sverige och producerade i Indien2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag sker designen och produktionen av de flesta textila produkterna i helt olika delar av världen. Detta gör att företagen många gånger har svårt att kontrollera kvaliteten på produkterna innan de skickas vidare till kunder och återförsäljare. Trots detaljerade beskrivningar på hur produkter förväntas se ut och dess prestanda, tenderar det ändå att uppstå återkommande kvalitetsfel på produkter. Syftet med denna studie har därför varit att undersöka orsaken till kvalitetsbrister hos produkter utvecklade av ett svenskt textilföretag och producerade i Indien, samt hur företaget kan förbättra sin kvalitet. För att uppfylla syftet har två forskningsfrågor undersökts med hjälp av analysmetoden triangulering. Frågorna som ställts är; var och varför kvalitetsbristerna på fallföretagets produkter uppstår samt vilka åtgärder företaget kan vidta för att förebygga kvalitetsbrister hos produkterna. Primärdatan i studien utgörs av det kvalitativa empiriska materialet som består av intervjuer med respondenter från fallföretaget, dess leverantörer samt två externa oberoende parter. Den kvantitativa primärdatan består av dokument som samlats in från fallföretaget. För att kunna besvara forskningsfrågorna har relevant sekundärdata från tidigare forskning insamlats. Studien visar att majoriteten av fallföretagets kvalitetsproblem kan härledas till produktion och beror på en kombination av en rad olika faktorer som tillsammans påverkar produktens prestanda negativt. Vidare kan slutsatsen dras att det finns en stor potential för fallföretaget att minska sina kvalitetsbrister och de huvudsakliga åtgärderna bör fokusera på att upptäcka felen i ett tidigare skede.

    Lekens rolle i skandinaviske skolefritidsordninger og fritidshjem2014In: Barn, ISSN 0800-1669, Vol. 32, no 3, p. 107-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a general comment on article 31 UN warns against an increasing pressure for learning. A consequence of this is that children`s free spontaneous play is marginalized and that children’s spontaneous play is under pressure. With this as our backdrop we will do a close reading of how play is presented in the official documents regarding children`s institutionalized leisure in after-school programs in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Our reading show that there is room for interpretation and that the official documents are open to an understanding of play as something instrumental. This is in line with what we interpret as a dominating perspective on play. Our reading also shows that the documents are open up to a change of perspective where play is regarded for its own value.

    Fra kongens til nasjonens kultur: Fransk kulturpolitikk fra Ludvig XIV til den franske revolusjon2010In: Nordisk kulturpolitisk tidskrift, ISSN 1403-3216, E-ISSN 2000-8325, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 140-161Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For André Malraux the purpose of cultural policy was to promote human sociability and French national identity by giving as many Frenchmen as possible access to the great works of art, and especially the French ones. He wanted to keep the influence of market forces at a distance. The purpose of this article is to give an historical perspective of the French tradition of strong ties between political power and the arts. Under Louis XIV the arts were subjugated to the purpose of securing obedience by celebrating the glory of the monarchy, particularly using Versailles as a cultural and social as well as a political instrument of power. Creating the royal academies was part of this strategy. This was, however, not solely a subjugation, but also a liberation from the medieval, economic framework of the guilds, creating a separate aesthetic sphere. In the 18th century this sphere would form the basis for autonomus aesthetic judgements, which would then be turned into moral and political judgements. The 18th century saw at first a resurgence of aristocratic power, symbolized aesthetically in the Fête galante immortalized by Watteau. Towards the end of the century a moralizing patriotic movement gained ascendancy, often adopting a critical stance against both monarchy and aristocracy. The ascendancy of stern patriotism, politically and aesthetically, reached its apogee in the radical phase of the French Revolution, symbolized in the twin roles of Jacques-Louis David as politician and leading artist. Under the Revolution we see the processes of both liberation and of a subjugation of art to politics more thorough than ever before. A lasting result of the French Revolution was to appropriate cultural objects as a national cultural heritage and turn them into subjects of pedagogy, especially through the establishement of public museums, archives and libraries.

    Distriktssköterskans erfarenheter av läkemedelsgenomgångar hos äldre patienter inom hemsjukvård och särskilda boenden2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Många äldre patienter har idag flera sjukdomar och många läkemedel eftersom detta är den vanligaste behandlingsformen. Med antal läkemedel ökar risken för läkemedelsbiverkningar samt sämre livskvalitet och välbefinnande för patienten. Läkemedelsgenomgångar är till för att se över vilka läkemedel patienten använder och varför dessa läkemedel är ordinerade. Även nyttan och risker för läkemedelsbiverkningar ses över.

    Syftet är att undersöka distriktssköterskans erfarenheter av läkemedelsgenomgångar hos äldre patienter inom den kommunala hälso- och sjukvården. För att uppnå syftet i denna studie har författarna använt sig av kvalitativ metod med induktiv ansats. Datainsamlingen genomfördes med halvstrukturerade intervjuer med sju distriktssköterskor och tre sjuksköterskor inom olika stadsdelar i en stad i Västra Götaland. Studien visar att distriktssköterskans erfarenheter av läkemedelsgenomgångar inom hemsjukvård och särskilda boenden är att det finns brister och hinder som kan påverka patientsäkerheten. Studien visar också att distriktssköterskor känner stort ansvar när det kommer till patientens läkemedelsanvändning, livskvalitet och välmående. Vidare saknas det ordentliga riktlinjer och ansvarsuppdelning vid läkemedelsgenomgångar. Studien visar även att ökad läkemedelsanvändning kan påverka miljö negativt samt att läkemedelsbiverkningar innebär onödiga kostnader för samhället och onödigt lidande för patienten.

    Beyond Seeing: Noisy Bodies2018Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The dress is a part of constructing and defining our identity. As a form of visual communication, clothing is a powerful means of making statements. Currently, fashion design products are developed based on the transmission of an image, referred to as a ‘culture-screen’, which makes the interaction process focused on the visual experience. Although sound, touch, and smell are elements of clothing, the visual sense is predominant in fashion and fashion education, and fashion is essentially understood as a system of visual components. As an alternative to this dominant focus on visuality, fashion could be explored as a sound-based interaction between the body and dress. The existing study of sound ontology in fashion is limited; thus, it is a largely new and interesting territory to be potentially explored. What is a sonic identity in the field of fashion? My research Aesthetics of the Invisible: Toward a Sonic Fashion Ontology is widening the notion of what aesthetics is by developing a new direction for fashion design on non-visual aesthetics based on sonic expressions. The sound is considered as a design-thinking material and an alternative, experimental way of defining a form for a silhouette. The sound installation Noisy Bodies is a part of the research practice–Sonic Fashion Library. The Noisy Bodies consist of 40 selected sound records of clothing, shoes, and accessory. The audience is invited to explore an acoustic dimension of fashion by listening to this sonic collage.

    BODY OF MOVEMENT2017Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pictures and videos exhibited at Everything and Everybody as materials 2017. 

    The work exemplifies how the body can extend into materiality and through this it questions the borders of the body not only in form, which is usually the case in fashion design, but also in movement qualities as temporal form. Further it high lightens the importance of awareness of movement qualities in materials of dress as they express the form.

    The body is extended by its angular structure into the geometric form. 3 examples of the work was displayed. In its simplest form as lines connected with elastics, then the structure dressed in fabric and one where the structure is extended as squares.

    The performance Cuttlefish questions the form, identity and movement qualities of the dancer and through this it opens up for the discussion, what is a body? The body forms, the viewer can relate to on an emotional level, they became new personas and identities through the new movement qualities and forms. The costume design suggests and push both the choreography and the narrative further, since these new bodies, in themselves, are a choreography and narrative.

    designing with heat2009Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aiming to open a new design space that connects three areas of architectural, interaction and textile design, the knitted structures Furry lines and Groovy squares were designed. By combining conventional textile yarns together with conductive yarns, the result investigates the sensation of warmth through the design of knitted structures. The purpose is to offer a synesthetic experience that correlate the physical and visual perception of space and focuses on tactility as an asset to create interactive architectural environments. The structures were made using different knitting techniques, combining a silver-coated copper yarn and conventional textile yarns. The silver coated copper yarn is used both for heat generating and touch sensing properties. Connected to a microcontroller able to sense and react on small differences in electricity, the textile becomes a touch sensor itself. By offering feed-back to hand touch DESIGNING WITH HEAT DELIA DUMITRESCU ANNA PERSSON by becoming warmly pleasant to the skin, new types of patterns can be created using the combination between heat and human touch that exceed the visual dimension. Designing with heat exemplifies how visible and invisible expressions merge into one experience, expressed through the textile material. The textile structure is perceived both through the eyes of imagination and the skin as heated patterns. The prototypes show how heat could be part of the surface aesthetics alongside with colour and shape.

    Abstract [en]

    The sound installation Sonic Somatic is based on the exploration of the sonic identities. This art project considers the notion of sonic object and sonic subject as a binary system of interaction between human body and sounding object(s) and two stages: (1) being a sound and (2) wearing a sound. Sonic Somatic consists of three parts: a) low-tech sound amplifiers b) interactive sonic fashion library; c) sonic dummy.

    Collaborative project Ahti is a speculative short film about the first human being

    born in space. The story is happening in the future. It’s 2076 and there is no water

    left on our Blue Palnet Earth. Ahti is the main character of this story. Ahti collects ice

    from asteroids and brings it back to the nearest space station. Ahti is wearing the

    same suit every day. It is like a second skin. The skin has different properties, which

    protect and allow walking on any surface, levitating, communicating, storing energy,

    and etc.
