    Varför bild?: Grundskoleelevers uppfattningar om bildämnets relevans2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study of qualitative method that aims to investigate how compulsory school students perceive the content of Visual Art Education and the relevance of art education. The study is based on empirical methods that consists of semi-structured interviews with a total of 12 students in grades 6 and 9. The theoretical framework of the study is based on a sociocultural perspective which describes that it is through communication and interaction with others that the individual acquires knowledge and skills.

    The theoretical starting points for the study are supported by the concepts of visual culture, visual literacy and Vygotskijs concepts of creativity and imagination with the assistance of contemporary research that describes the concepts from the perspective of a modern-day society. Furthermore, the study uses the cultural circuit from Hall and photo elicitation from Rose as analytical tool to analyze the participants perceptions about Visual Art Education.

    The results of my study show that Visual Art Education still represents something that is more similar to a traditional view of artist work, with a focus on techniques and materials. The results also show that the participants perceive Visual Art Education as less important compared to other school subjects and some of the participants don’t think they will benefit from the subject’s knowledge and abilities either in future education, future profession or their private life. This shows the participants narrow view of how abilities linked to visual literacy are relevant in a modern society.

    The knowledge contribution added to the problem area and previous research is a deeper understanding of how the participants perceive the relevance of Visual Art Education. The study is important and relevant for the teaching profession, as students need to be made more aware of the breadth and relevance of Visual Art Education. From this content it can be deduced that the abilities that students must acquire through visual arts education are about so much more than just drawing. It is also important that teachers gain insight and understanding of how students perceive the relevance of Visual Art Education for them to be able to move forward.

    Back to the Roots: Re-Connecting Humanity and the Natural World by Merging Interactive Technology and Plants2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis project explores combining interactive technology and the natural world, through a more-than-human design approach. This project aims to step away from an industry-driven design by valuing plants as equal in the design process. Throughout this report, an overview of the relevant theory and examples are elaborated on. This overview has informed the project in two ways. It formed the foundation of a concept aiming to improve the user’s interconnectedness with nature and it formed the foundation of an evaluation tool developed for aiding designers in design for plants by addressing three design fields: Design for Care, Design for Cohabitation, and Design for Noticing. The concept and the evaluation tool have been developed in parallel and informed each other throughout the project. The final concept contributes to the discussion about addressing more-than-human actors in design. In this case by addressing plant blindness. The evaluation tool contributes to more-than-human design as a tool to evaluate ideas and projects. This project included an extensive analysis of a design collection, workshops regarding the materiality of living plants and assessment of the evaluation tool, an interdisciplinary design approach, and a prototyping phase during which assumptions regarding the concept were tested.

    Känslor, identitet och branding: En analys av vinproducenters Instagramkommunikation2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how wine brands use emotional branding and narrative identities to connect with customers on Instagram. The research questions were as follows: How do winemakers use emotional branding in their communication on Instagram? How does the narrative that the company tells about itself relate to the customer's identity? To answer this, a semiotic analysis was made where three different wine producers were examined. For each wine producer, a profile overview and three posts were analyzed. The findings show that all three wine producers created content that corresponds to emotional branding for instance by trying to emphasize a connection to sentimental memories, socialization, lifestyles and ideals. By trying to create a narrative around the brand, they intend to attract consumers whose narrative identity corresponds to the identity of the brand. This is relevant knowledge for designers and marketing people in order to connect with consumers. Since the wine business has a great economic relevance, this knowledge can also be considered to be of general interest.

    Infographics i reklam - Om informationsvisualisering som metod i reklamkommunikation2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines information visualization, infographics, as a method of advertising. To answer the initial research question of what makes infographics an appropriate method for print advertising, a practical infographic-based advertising campaign has been designed. This, together with three other campaigns, has been the basis for an analysis focused on function, appeal and persuasion. The result tells us that there are benefits to using infographics for an advertising purpose, because the method can act both attention-grabbing and convincing, depending on how it is used and designed.

    Visualisering av mental ohälsa2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay explores whether visualization can be a suitable method to increase people’s awareness of mental illness. The purpose of this paper is, through literature studies and practical examination, to increase the knowledge of visualization of information. The purpose is also to, with the help of a focus group, examine whether visualization of mental illness has the potential to increase people’s awareness of this phenomenon. The conclusion is that visualization of mental illness can be a very effective method by providing the opportunity to draw attention to a subject in which words are not perceived to be enough to explain. This is thanks to the instant communication capability of an image through which a visual and cognitive process makes it possible for the viewer to get a picture of the problem.

    Just another ad?2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Marketers often target women because they represent over half of the population in Canada and Sweden and because they are the purchasing agents for 85% of household items. Advertisers and marketers use targeted marketing on Social Media platforms in the hopes of engaging the audience enough to initiate a purchasing action. For this paper the goal was to understand the relationship between women aged 55+ and their attitudes and perception of targeted advertising, to see whether it was effective in engaging them as consumers. Through interviews and the think-aloud method we found that while the overall perception of online advertising was negative, in practice, the ads on their social media feed were either accepted as relevant ads, simply ignored/not noticed, or not recognized as advertising. Finally we conclude that because social media gives users the impression that they are in control of the content on their feed, the consequences may be that targeted advertising can influence audience’s perception of who they are, more than they think.

    Designkvalitéer i svenskt vildsvinsläder2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study is a design-driven research project that answers the question: What material design qualities are there in Swedish wild boar leather and how can these be applied in product design? The question is primarily investigated through a material-driven design method and results is analysed through theories of design for sustainable development and design for emotional durability.

    The material-driven design method began with free exploration of the material, first impressions were documented and hypotheses about the material were deemed incorrect. To investigate the technical characteristics, tests were carried out. The material experience is explored through a tool where 10 participants answered questions about the material's performative, sensory, affective, and interpretive properties. The tests ended with a reflection of the material's positive, negative, and unique properties.

    The knowledge of the design qualities of wild boar leather was then used in an idea generation process to create a sustainable product with emotional durability. The idea generation culminates in the study's design proposal, a chair with cushion and backrest made of wild boar leather. The study concludes with a conclusion that confirms the design qualities of wild boar leather and a discussion that highlights insights that emerged during the study's implementation.

    Arkivexempel: K-Pop Design: Visual Aesthetics In Korean Popular Culture (designprojekt) och Interaktiv förpackningsdesign: Grafisk formgivning av K-pop album och dess inflytande på konsumentbeteende (kandidatuppsats): Komplett arkivexempel för Kandidatuppsats (15hp) och Designdokumentation (15hp)2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With the rise of Hallyu, or the global export of Korean culture also commonly known as ‘The Korean Wave’, South Korea has become a big trendsetter in recent years: whether it be within fashion and K-Beauty skincare or Korean movies and drama series, to Korean popular music, also known under the umbrella term K-pop. What these categories have in common are their strong ties to visual aesthetics and K-pop is known for its very colourful and maximalist design, which is also a key characteristic to why K-pop as a phenomenon has been particularly attractive and has managed to captivate fans all over the world. In the marvelling K-pop universe, the goal is to engage all the senses for a complete and interactive sensory experience, making the visual just as important as the auditory, and this can also be applied to the physical album design. Physical K-pop albums sell better than ever despite the digital streaming services dominating our digital age. A visual analysis was conducted on selected contemporary K-pop albums together with a survey on Swedish K-pop fans, in order to discuss how packaging design of K-pop albums can influence consumer behavior. The study showed that interactive packaging design and extra album inclusions like photocards, photo books, postcards etc. makes the fans more likely to want to collect albums and merchandise, which on its own can be viewed as a collectible item. The packaging design both facilitates and encourages fans to interact with the design not only visually, but also in a tactile way, by engaging in participatory behavior such as filming unboxing videos and posting them on social media, and it can also be associated with identity making, i.e. how they identify themselves as fans in relation to their favorite artists or towards other fans. Lastly, it is interesting to discuss how K-pop design can be heavily influenced by American and Western concepts despite being marketed as a Korean phenomena and innovation; from the visual analysis it could also be concluded that contemporary design trends draw inspiration from Western concepts such as the y2k millennium bug, retro and technology.

    En studie om elevers upplevelse av bedömning i ämnet bild2011Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande uppsats är att undersöka om det finns några könsrelaterade orättvisor i dagens betygsystem. Som blivande lärare i ämnet bild var vi intresserade av frågor kring bedömning och betygssättning. Målet på sikt är att vårt arbete ska bidra till att det tas fram ett, om möjligt, mer rättvist betygssystem. Vi har arbetat fram specificerade frågor: ”Upplever elever att deras estetiska kunskaper och utveckling i ämnet bild bedöms olika beroende på kön?” och ”Har någon kön biologisk fördel framför det andra att nå högre resultat i ämnet bild?” Undersökningen består av en aktionsforskning, som följs upp av gruppintervjuer. Aktionsforskningen har följt modellen; planering, genomförande, observation och ny planering. Den kvalitativa gruppintervjun har utgått från semistrukturerade frågor som har anpassats efter informanternas svar. Efter genomförda gruppintervjuer och observationer under undersökningen har vi bearbetat materialet med hjälp av genusteorier för att urskilja mönster. Resultatet visar att eleverna är medvetna om de fysiska och psykiska skillnaderna och förutsättningarna, men upplever inte att de bedöms olika beroende på vilket kön de har. Slutsatser som kan dras är att både bild och kreativitet uppfattats som verksamheter ägnade för flickor som presterar bättre ämnet eftersom de har bättre kreativa förutsättningar.

    Bära trä: Låta naturen stå till tjänst genom produktdesign2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work explores how the positive health benefits of nature can be utilized in a sensory garment aimed at people with attention deficit disorder. Expert interviews are conducted with professionals who prescribe weight aids, with the aim of investigating sensory impact. Furthermore, user-centered methods are used in a material driven design process to give the target group opportunity to influence the design of the final product. The knowledge contribution consists of the discovery that the smell of burnt wood constitutes a positive perceived value of the product. Furthermore, that wood give rise to an instinctive reflex to interact with and stroke the material. The weight aids available on the market today does not consider any of these perceived values. Thus, the result of this work offers an indication on how weight garments can be developed to better meet the needs of the target group.

    Abstract [en]

    Gender equality has become an important topic in many organisations. This study focuses on how gender performances of female managers affect the career opportunities for female managers in the public sector. The purpose of the study is to illustrate the problems that may be behind the low proportion of female heads in the swedish public sector agencies. The study consists of four different qualitative interviews with women in senior positions in the public sector. Previous studies show that men generally posses higher levels of power than woman do.The result of this study shows that there is stereotypical conceptions about women in senior positions. The study also shows that a negative attitude towards female leadership can limit female leaders influence and power.

    Klimatkrisen i tre illustrerade barnböcker: En studie i hur tre illustrerade barnböcker kommunicerar med barn om klimatet2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to investigate strategies for discussing and communicating the climate crisis to children using illustrations and other visual elements in children's books. Children worry about the climate, are consumers themselves, have opportunities to influence and children are future decision makers. Illustrated children's books are important for informing and engaging children in the climate issue. A total of nine illustrations in three children's books available in Swedish bookstores have been analyzed through semiotic analysis. They differ both in terms of how healthy and diseased nature is portrayed, who bears the responsibility for change, what needs to be done. Commitment to the climate issue is achieved through understanding that there are things that are important to preserve and that there is an opportunity to influence. Further studies are needed to analyze how best to communicate the climate issue with children.

    Expanding Participation to Design with More-Than-Human Concerns2020In: PDC '20: Proceedings of the 16th Participatory Design Conference 2020 - Participation(s) Otherwise - Volume 1, ACM Digital Library, 2020Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Participatory Design's focus on people comes from a social democratic vision. However, as climate and existential crises press us to consider wellbeing beyond humans alone, we ask what a pluriversal design agenda might include and what could be articulated as ‘participatory’? Necessarily, this inquiry has limits, as participation usually implies human voice, rights, representation and structures of decision-making. This paper commits to these concerns while asking ethical, political and onto-epistemological questions regarding how worlds and futures are shaped when more-than-human entities – plants, animals, rocks, rivers and spirits – participate in our becoming? We offer a meeting of feminist techno-science with practices and philosophies from Japan and beyond to offer thought experiments in engaging with difference and plurality. And we give several examples of practice situated at ontological boundaries to offer some novel thoughts on ‘participation otherwise’, always-participating-with-many and the futures this could usher in.

    Participatory Development: A study of community and citizen participation in development and policymaking in Stockholm, Värmdo and Bortkyrka municipalities in Sweden2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore and analyze the application of a participatory development approach in Stokholm, Bortkyrka, and Värmdo local municipalities in Stockholm County in Sweden. The reason for chosen municipalities in Sweden is because Sweden is relatively an advanced country with an established infrastructure and democracy to necessitate an advanced level in participatory development approach. This study examined participatory strategies and interventions within the context of development communication and how they are used to engage citizens in community-based development initiatives. I used a participatory theory to answer the following question “To what extent do local municipalities apply a participatory approach in their community development initiatives? By applying appropriate methods, a comprehensive understanding of how municipalities apply a participatory approach in development initiatives was explored and analyzed. The study findings indicate that participatory development approach is still unclear, and it is at a rudimentary stage in the municipalities studied, and that although community participation in development initiatives in the municipalities align with the concept of development communication, there is still a lack of comprehensive aapreciation of participatory development in the context of communication for development (ComDev). Therefore, the lack of clarity on how participatory approach is understood and applied plays a fundamental role in retarding the realization of the full potential of participatory development approach.

    Urban Aquaponics: Sustainable Integration of Aquaponics within the City of Malmö2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With increasing urban expansion and rising global demand for food production, integrating aquaponics within the urban contexts can be considered an alternative sustainable solution to enrich the local production and self-sufficiency. In this research, we aim to study the aquaponics system and provide a design guide for implementing the urban version of the system in the city of Malmo. The design guide will be also practically tested in a form of an architectural proposal at the end of the research. To reach the results, various case studies and academic research were investigated. In addition to other qualitative and quantitative methodologies, such as interviews, questionnaire, and ethnographic studies that contributed to making progress during the research’s different phases. The analysis of data was to generate sustainable bases for urban aquaponics that go in line with the city’s conditions and citizens’ aspirations. Accordingly, several methods and techniques were deducted to be used for the sustainable integration of the aquaponics system within the urban context of Malmo. Nevertheless, the integration process can contribute to including other operations with the aim of increasing aquaponics sustainability and solving urban issues within the context. However, the design guide produced in this paper is mainly for the city of Malmo, but it can be adjusted to other social and geographical contexts.

    Vart är jag på väg, hur är jag på väg & vad är mitt nästa steg?2023Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Examensarbetets syfte är att belysa lärande bedömning i pedagogiska miljöer, såsom i bildklassrummet. Detta undersöker vi genom en kvalitativ gruppintervju med fyra elever och två bildlärare, om hur bedömning upplevs och vilka svårigheter elever samt lärare bemöter. Eleverna i intervjun önskade sig ändringar för en enkel och rättvis bedömning utan komplexitet på grundskolenivå. En annan källa som vi använde oss av för vår undersökning är den valda litteraturen av Anders Jönsson (2013) och Lars Lindström m.fl. (2011). Källorna lyfter fram författarnas teorier, metoder och tolkningar om hur läraren kan samspela med elever, för att kunna nå en smidig bedömning utan en upplevelse av komplexitet. Författarna utgår från bedömning, återkoppling, kamratbedömning, svårigheter inom bedömning, metoder för bedömning och sociokulturellt perspektiv. Målet i texterna handlar om processen och hur eleverna utvecklar deras tankar kring bedömning genom kommunikation med andra elever och lärare.

    Lärare och medmänniska - en kvalitativ undersökning om bildundervisning för nyanlända elever2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I föreliggande examensarbete undersöks utmaningen bildlärare möter i sitt arbete med nyanlända elever. Genom tre kvalitativa intervjuer undersöks vilka didaktiska och medmänskliga utmaningar bildlärare ställs inför i bildundervisningen av nyanlända elever och hur lärarna hanterar dessa utmaningar. Resultatet från intervjuerna redovisas i en textbaserad del och i en gestaltande del, där den textbaserade delen och gestaltningen kompletterar varandra för att få fram ny kunskap och nya insikter. Intervjumaterialet sätts i relation till tidigare forskning som belyser vilka fördelar bildundervisning kan ha för nyanlända barn och vuxna. Materialet sätts också i relation till de teoretiska perspektiv som Hetland et al (2013) och Fors & Bäckström (2015) står för, Hetland et als teori sätts främst i relation till det textbaserade resultatet då den teorin berör vilka förmågor elever kan tillskansa sig genom en bildundervisning. Fors & Bäckström teori om visuella metoder används främst i relation till den gestaltande delen då deras teori synliggör hur det visuella kan tillföra en ny dimension till en textbaserad studie. Resultatet från föreliggande studie visar på vikten av att ta hänsyn till varje enskild elevs förutsättningar. Även om mötet med nyanlända kan vara utmanande på grund av bland annat elevernas emotionella behov handskas lärarna med det genom att ventilera sina känslor med exempelvis kollegor. Föreliggande studie belyser också hur nyanlända elever kan gynnas av att få undervisning i bildämnet tidigt i sin utbildning.

    An Attempt to Set A design Base for post-conflict housing in the historic core of Homs, Syria2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The built environment in the old city of Homs has been brutally destroyed by the conflict in Syria. The research gap in post-conflict planning and architectural design in the old city of Homs is alarming as it indicates that there are no clear roadmaps on how to deal with post-conflict housing units in such a historic area. This study aims to investigate the possible design basis of housing typologies and plans for the housing units in the old city after the conflict.

    This study is primarily based on a literature review and extensive discussions with a specialist architect from the city of Homs, who helped to gain a deeper understanding of how to approach such a topic. The literature review deals with the historical Arab cities’ components and the elements of courtyard houses both in general and in the old city of Homs in particular. Likewise, it looks at the city’s urban plans and building code and their shortcomings and highlights the current conditions there. It also highlights proposed strategies for post-conflict construction and discusses them.

    The findings of the study propose a design ideology for reconstruction strategies and translate these ideologies and findings from the literature into a practical design of typologies placed on a proposed plot of land in the old city, along with a proposal of what the plans of these houses might look like.

    Transparency between consumers and grocery stores: Evincer - A design prototype to empower consumer experience during grocery shopping2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores how the interaction design techniques approach can contribute to enabling more transparency in physical shopping by creating bridges between consumers and various stakeholders. The aim is to empower the consumers to make informed decisions through obtaining and understanding health and environmental information for individual commodities.

    Through close collaboration with users, and with the support of active designers, the design process results in the development of an interactive mobile application proposal. The prototype aims to create a hub between consumers and different stakeholders concerning individual products. Furthermore, the prototype grants consumers access to the information they desire, sharing or requesting product feedback from stakeholders and consumers, focusing on the environment and health aspects.

    Incorporating digital gaming and applications in the classroom and its effects on motivation and learning among EFL learners2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This research synthesis investigates the complex theme of how motivation is affected by the use of digital games and applications while learning a second language. A solid overview of the leading motivation theories in second language learning is presented. Based on these motivational theories in second language learning, educational publications are reviewed to find the effects on L2 learner motivation when teachers use digital games and applications in the classroom. In order to find the adequate compilation of studies we have searched peer- reviewed publications not older than the publishing year 2014. It was found that the usage of digital games and applications in the classroom increases intrinsic motivation in L2 learning. These games need to be entertaining and fun in order to keep the young L2 learners motivated. The synthesis also revealed that frequent gamers outperform non-gamers in L2 English. The limitations of this synthesis are that there is still little research available among the age group of young L2 learners.

    Tuta i lurendrejeri2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Exploring the relatively new technology of convolution reverb, to gather knowledge on its limitations when used practically in the production of pop music, and from these findings to learn about applications in other performing arts and sound design. Methodology: This is a case study of creating convolution reverb by doing impulse responses (IR) and then applying them to studio recorded pop music. The empirical data consists of the final song results, notes and journals from during the process and the comparisons, as well as established litterature on acoustics, psycho-acoustics and music production. Results: Convolution reverb can widely and freely be used in the production of music and other audio-based art forms, since our study shows that the result of a well-made impulse response from a particular room is indistinguishable from music that is actually played and recorded in the same space.

    Moving Mathematics: Exploring constructivist tools to enhance mathematics learning2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The challenges faced by mathematics education reflect the more immense difficulties of the schooling system as a whole. This thesis investigates such challenges in the light of an ethical learning foundation and aims for a transformation through the use of technologies as learning tools. 

    Interaction design methods are used to craft constructivist learning kits that aim to move mathematics students from passive receivers of knowledge to active learners. The proposed tools modify new technologies by adapting them to teachers’ and learners’ needs to be best suited for mathematics classroom adoption. Additionally, social, political, and economic issues that may hinder the adoption of constructivist learning are presented and critically discussed. 

    Finally, this thesis paves the way for future designers who aim to design mathematics educational kits by providing a design framework based on the learning theory and the design process presented in this thesis.

    Potentialen för flytande arkitektur i Västra Hamnen2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Floating architecture is not a new concept and has been practiced by civilzations for thousands of years. Considering that, one would imagine that floating residential areas would be common practice at this point in many large cities around the world. However, this type of architecture has seen a slow growth and establishment in the western world which has led to a gap in the research field on floating architecture. This means that we have relatively small amount of data on how floating residential areas are affected by their surrounding urban environments and how they influence the local residents that live in and around them. There are many questions that need to be further researched when it comes to floating architecture. How safe is the environment for a resident on a floating structure? To what extent can floating communities be socially interconnected to neighbouring residential areas? How environmentally sustainable is it to develop floating buildings and how does the longevity look? All of these questions are interesting to investigate especially since the focus area of this research is Västra Hamnen, Malmö where floating architectural projects already have been established. The aim of this research is to understand to what extent a floating residential area can be developed in regards to environmental and social sustainability as well as building safety in Västra Hamnen.

    Elever och bildanalys: en diskursanalys2020Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetet med bildanalys i grundskolans övre år verkar skilja sig beroende på bildlärares kompetens, vilja och tolkning av kursplanen. Då bildanalys är en del av det centrala innehållet för ämnet bild finns det skäl därför att undersöka vilka element som kan te sig påverkande när elever utför bildanalys. Syftet med detta arbete är att identifiera och beskriva opererande diskurser samt beskriva hur dessa diskurser styr elever som gör bildanalys. Metoden som använts är Svenssons modell för diskursanalys. Det empiriska materialet samlades in genom formatet av en workshop i bildanalys med karaktärsdrag från aktionsforskning och fokusgrupper. Vidare undersöktes vilka diskurser som är identifierbara och hurdant dessa i samband med olika maktperspektiv opererar. Begreppet diskursanalys används här både som en teoretisk utgångspunkt och en metod för att studera språkanvändning. Språket ses som en aktiv handling inom diskursanalys, det vill säga att språkanvändning påverkar upplevelser och tankesätt. Flera diskurser som styr elever som gör bildanalys identifierades. Diskurserna styr eleverna då de möjliggör för olika handlingsalternativ samtidigt som de sätter gränser för vad som är möjligt att uttrycka. De identifierade diskurserna är omsorgsdiskursen, den hierarkiska diskursen, bildämnets kommunikativa diskurs, professionsdiskursen, diskursen om elevernas kunskapssyn och tystnadsdiskursen. Inom varje diskurs finns olika former av makt som styr hur diskurserna opererar. Resultatet i vår studie visar på att omsorgsdiskursen och den hierarkiska diskursen verkade växelvis med varandra, att professionsdiskursen och bildämnets kommunikativa diskurs i första hand opererar tillsammans och tystnadsdiskursen kan operera med flera diskurser.

    Krock eller möte? Om pedagogers inställning till bildskapande i förskola och grundskolans tidigare år2007Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vårt syfte med denna uppsats har varit att undersöka hur sex pedagoger i förskola och skola ser på och arbetar med bildskapande i verksamheterna. Vi ville också undersöka vilka likheter och skillnader vi kunde finna hos de två kategorierna av pedagoger. Vår undersökning har vi gjort med hjälp av kvalitativa djupintervjuer med de sex pedagogerna. Uppsatsen är även utförd med fortlöpande litteraturstudier kopplat till vårt ämne. I vår litteraturgenomgång ger vi först en historisk tillbakablick på bildskapandet i den svenska förskolan och skolan. Därefter visar vi på hur bildskapande tas upp i de båda läroplanerna. Litteraturavsnittet avslutas med en kort presentation av de teorier vi behandlar i analysen. Resultatet visar att alla sex pedagogerna använder sig av bildskapande i sin verksamhet, men att syftet med det varierar kraftigt, främst mellan de olika verksamheterna, men även inbördes. Vi har dragit slutsatsen att förskolans bildskapande är friare och mer kommunikativt än det bildskapande som förekommer i skolan. Vi har också kommit fram till att en pedagogisk diskussion är nödvändig för att klargöra läroplanernas intentioner och få in dessa i verksamheten.

    Elevers uppfattningar om bildämnet i skolan2023Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta arbete handlar om elevers uppfattningar om bildämnet i skolan. Syftet med mitt arbete är att undersöka elevers intresse av och motivation inom bildämnet och vilka anledningar som ligger till grund för elevernas uppfattningar om ämnet bild. 

    Undersökningen genomfördes med så kallad ”mixed methods” som innebar att jag har använd mig av flera metoder för datainsamling. Frågorna skickades till elever i årskurs 4 – 9 på tre olika skolor, där de sedermera svarade på webbaserad enkät. Detta för att kunna undersöka elevernas uppfattning samt syn på bildämnet. Trots att majoriteten av eleverna dessvärre inte var intresserade av att svara på frågorna så inkom tillräckligt många tydliga och motiverande svar vilket gjorde att analys kunde genomföras. 

    Uppsatsen beskriver forskning om ämnet bild och elevers uppfattningar om ämnet bild men även vad forskningen kommit fram till om elevernas uppfattning om bildämnet. I uppsatsen tas det även upp om bildämnets historia, hur den var förr i tiden och hur den har utvecklat samt hur den ser ut idag. I slutet av uppsatsen finns en analys del och resultatet av analysen som visar att forskningens syn överensstämmer med svaren från eleverna utifrån svaren och sammanställning på enkäten vilket också besvarar huvudfrågorna för denna uppsats.

    Living With Things: An open-source approach to the exploration of IoT through speculative design and hacking2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the field of human-computer interaction, the majority of domestic IoT and smart devices run on proprietary software that possess limited technical properties and predetermined functionalities. As practices of building, modifying, and making IoT applications grow, this thesis follows an open-source approach to IoT to investigate the relationships of humans and things in a domestic setting.

    As a result of this material exploration, proprietary frameworks for interactions with smart devices are challenged through speculative scenarios, that include diverse instances of human-things interactions.

    Thus, a research through design methodology is suggested to support series of experiments, conducted to explore instances of perceived intelligence of these open-source hardware, without the use of advanced computational systems as proprietary devices entail. The suggested process is the creation of a speculative design artifact that combines hacking practices, to support designers in generating insights and to further iterate on possible open-source IoT interactions.

    Den större bilden Hur bildlärare resonerar kringbildämnet i ämnesövergripande arbete2020Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Med den här studien ämnar vi att belysa bildämnets kvaliteter i ämnesövergripande undervisningskontext. Vi vill även undersöka om och hur bildlärarna förhåller sig till bildämnet och ämnesövergripande arbete utifrån förmågor som kreativitet, kommunikation, kritiskt tänkande samt kollaboration (de fyra K:na). Frågeställningarna vi utgått från är följande: hur resonerar bildlärare kring bildämnets möjligheter och utmaningar i ämnesövergripande undervisningskontext? Samt: på vilka sätt framkommer förmågorna de fyra K:na i bildlärarnas svar? Genom utförandet av semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem bildlärare har vi tagit del av hur dessa tänker och resonerar kring bildämnet i en ämnesövergripande undervisningskontext. Resultatet visar att bildämnet och visuella kulturer har goda möjligheter att samarbeta med andra ämnen. Vilka möjligheter bildämnet i ämnesövergripande undervisningskontext besitter är ännu ett redskap att kommunicera och uttrycka sig på samt en större kunskapsbild. Utmaningarna ligger främst i strukturell problematik så som bildämnets få timmar, planeringsbrist samt hierarkier mellan skolämnen. Intervjumaterialet synliggör att samtliga informanter för resonemang kring ett eller fler av de fyra K:na. Dock inte i någon högre utsträckning i relation till förmågor. Detta tyder ändå på att de fyra K:na är relevanta för bildämnet, men i andra sammanhang.

    Digitala dilemman: En analys av några bildlärares uppfattningar och praxis i bildklassrummet2023Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta examensarbete är att undersöka utmaningarna och möjligheterna som uppstår genom digitaliseringen inom bildämnet, samt hur bildlärare anpassar sig till den föränderliga miljön. Fokus ligger på att identifiera de begränsningar som utrustningen skapar för skolor och lärare, samt att utforska olika strategier för att hantera dessa utmaningar. Trots att läroplanen inkluderar riktlinjer för digitalisering inom bildämnet, har flera tidigare studier visat att den faktiska integrationen av teknologi inte lever upp till förväntningarna. Orsakerna till detta inkluderar lärarnas kompetens, deras syn på ämnet och skolans resurser. I denna studie genomfördes intervjuer med tre erfarna bildlärare för att få insikt i deras erfarenheter och åsikter om digitaliseringen inom bildundervisningen. Resultaten av studien visar att utrustningen i skolorna är begränsad och att det finns en variation i hur olika skolor hanterar digitaliseringen inom bildämnet. Denna variation kan skapa utmaningar för bildlärare när det gäller att integrera digitala verktyg i undervisningen, vilket i sin tur kan påverka elevernas digitala färdigheter.

    Genom att utforska det digitala dilemmat inom bildämnet bidrar denna studie till en ökad förståelse för de utmaningar och möjligheter som uppstår i samband med digitaliseringen av undervisningen. Resultaten kan vara användbara för både bildlärare och skolledare när de utformar strategier för att effektivt integrera digitala verktyg i bildundervisningen och främja elevernas digitala kompetens.

    Bildämnet ur ett interkulturellt perspektiv2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We live in an increasingly globalized world where mutual dependencies are clearly visible, especially in the lives of children and young people. Therefore, schools must prepare students for a life in which society houses multiple cultural diversity, give them global education, and create conditions for sustainable internationalization. Not much research and writing has been done about intercultural and multicultural art education in Sweden, because of this we chose to delve into this subject in our overview project. This knowledge overview examines the intercultural and multicultural meaning in visual arts education through scientific research. The main aim of this study is to investigate whether intercultural methods can help both students and teachers reach a better understanding regarding diversity in schools. Furthermore, this knowledge overview aims to gather different resources that touch on the concept of integrating multiculturalism into different pedagogy approaches that centers around visual arts. Our SAG project hopes to widen the perspective that current teachers have on/against diversity within education and which effects it may conjure.

    Inspiration och idéutveckling i ämnet slöjd2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ämnet slöjd är och skall vara ett kreativitetsutvecklande ämne i grundskolan, detta står inskrivet i slöjdämnets syftestext i läroplanen från 2011. I slöjden skall vi aktivt arbeta med idéutveckling genom att använda oss utav inspirationskällor i inledningen utav ett slöjdarbete. Det har dock visat sig, genom nationella utvärderingen i slöjd, att många slöjdlärare upplever detta som en utmaning och önskar öka sina kunskaper om detta. I denna studie undersöker jag hur några elevers idéutvecklingsförmåga påverkas av få, respektive inte få, en inspirationskälla i inledningen av ett slöjdarbete samt hur de upplever idéutvecklingsprocessen. Jag behandlar kortfattat slöjdämnet ur en idéhistorisk vinkel samt diskuterar kreativitetsbegreppet. Studien har genomförts genom triangulering med aktionsforskning som metod, elevenkäter samt intervjuer av en expertgrupp. Resultatet av denna begränsade studie visar att de teoretiska mål om kreativitetsutveckling som Lgr 11 sätter upp för slöjdämnet kan omsättas i praktiken med inspirationskällor och skissövningar och att detta förefaller leda till en fördjupad idéutveckling samt att eleverna upplever det som stimulerande.

    Abstract [sv]

    Abstract

    En kvalitativ studie av hur lärare uppfattar populärkultur i förhållande till religion och undervisningen i religionskunskap. Genom införandet av populärkultur i ”Lgr 11” och det centrala innehåll som anger att undervisningen i årskurs 7–9 ska behandla populärkulturen i samband med studiet av identitet och livsfrågor kan populärkulturen anses ha fått en etablerad position inom religionskunskapsundervisningen. Genom intervjuer med tre högstadielärare strävar jag efter att nå en ökad förståelse för användandet av populärkultur i en undervisning som inte enbart begränsas till identitet och livsfrågor utan som berör hela religionsämnet. Studien är både deskriptiv och normativ då syftet är att ge en ökad förståelse för hur populärkultur uppfattas av de intervjuade lärarna och varför lärare bör använda sig av populärkultur i religionskunskapsundervisningen.

    Pedagogers tankar och användning av estetiska lärprocesser i skolverksamheten2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med vårt examensarbete är att undersöka hur och om pedagogerna använder sig av estetiska lärprocesser i undervisningen. Det finns endast vid ett tillfälle inom so-ämnena som estetik tas upp och det är inom religionen. Detta kan ge en skev uppfattning om hur estetiken ska integreras inom de samhällsorienterade ämnena. Dessvärre är även den teoretiska kunskapen mer överordnad framför den praktiskt-estetiska kunskapen. För att genomföra denna undersökning har vi använt oss av kvalitativa intervjuer där vi har intervjuat sex pedagoger som har minst fem år av arbetslivserfarenhet inom skolverksamheten. Vi har valt att lyfta fram tre övergripande områden i vårt resultat och de är: läroplanen, estetik i klassrummet och estetiska arbetsmetoder. Dessa övergripande områden har vi sedan analyserat utifrån tidigare forskning och teori. Det sociokulturella perspektivet, att man lär sig i sociala sammanhang ligger som grund i detta arbete. Vi kan konstatera utifrån vårt resultat att pedagogerna är positivt inställda till att använda sig av estetiska lärprocesser i undervisningen. Pedagogerna ser mer än gärna att estetik är en del av undervisningen. Det finns dock faktorer som bidrar till att estetiken väljs bort. Dessa faktorer är: tid för planering, brist på lokaler och större utrymmen samt brist på kompetens inom de estetiska arbetsmetoderna. Vi anser att om det kan avsättas tid för planering där lärare får möjlighet att hjälpa varandra så är något som borde prioriteras. I verksamheten borde det även göras en översikt på vilka estetiska kompetenser de olika lärarna besitter. På så sätt kan pedagogerna utnyttja varandras kunskaper vilket kan bidra till att mer estetik integreras i undervisningen.

    Architectural Competitions on Aging in Denmark: Spatial Prototypes to Achieve Homelikeness 1899–20122023In: Architecture, E-ISSN 2673-8945, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 73-91Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Denmark, appropriate architecture for aging is an engaging topic, often explored through the use of architectural competitions. Since 2013, national guidelines for homelike architecture for eldercare have been in place, open for use in contemporaneous competitions. This study is focused on architectural competitions prior to 2013 and the development of modern architecture for aging. Based on reports on competitions in professional publications for architects, this study covers the period of 1899–2012. Inspired by the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur’s view of architecture as a spatial practice that ‘does not invoke what no longer is there but what has become through what is no longer present’, the present study revisits competitions on architecture for aging in search of inspirational input and links to the national socio-political discussion. This study uses case study methodology with a mixed method approach. A total of 76 competitions are identified, mainly organized by Danish municipalities, and are linked to four paradigms in social legislations. It is concluded that early competitions defined spatial prototypes, both for the homelike setting and the institutional environment, which have been continuously revisited. Since 2008, homelikeness has become the main design criterion for architecture for the frail aging population with an increasing dependency on caregiving.

    Architecture for defying exclusion of people with disabilities: Swedish accessible housing revisited2019In: ALTER, 8th conference European Society for Disability Research: HISTORIES, PRACTICES AND POLICIES OF DISABILITY.INTERNATIONAL, COMPARATIVE AND TRANSDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES, Cologne, Germany // 5 & 6 September 2019, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Barriers in the built environment exclude people with disabilities from participating independently in the surrounding society. Since the mid-1960s, architectural designs have been subject to special regulations in the Swedish building code, originally focusing on access for wheelchair users to public buildings. In the mid-1970s, this focus converged with the first Swedish disability policy and “accessibility for people with locomotory or cognitive problems” of the building code was coined. Building initiatives by organisations in defence of the rights of people with disabilities and documentaries of living conditions for this group prepared for this development. The present study revisits two cases of the 1950s and 1960s that opened for a rethinking of architectural and residential space for frail older people and appropriate housing for young people with mobility impairments. The study uses close reading and critical analyses of textual documentation in combination with spatial analyses of drawings to retrace the awaking among Swedish architects of the need of accessibility in the built environment (Brummett 2010, Lefebvre 1985, Miles and Hubermann 1994). The study suggests that accessible architecture requires user involvement and participatory processes to conceive spatiality that is usable by people with disabilities. At the same time, consultation with people disabilities about design aspects promoting accessibility is threatened by the current Swedish housing crisis and allegations that accessibility requirements would increase building costs.

    Patching up houses and tenants in sustainable management: architecture as an asset in private property ownership2023Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Following upon the Stockholm exposition in 1930 and the introduction of a new aesthetical and architectural thinking, some Swedish building companies and real estate owners fully embraced the new ideal. They started to assemble their own socio-political welfare ambitions concerning housing with additional services into housing projects. From 1930 to the beginning of the Million Housing Project in 1965, innovative building projects by either of these players, especially in the larger Swedish cities like Gothenburg, Malmö, and Stockholm, were realized. The project targeted different user groups in different ages, with different social background and preferences, stretching from collective housing to individualized design solutions. In these projects, both aesthetics and architecture played an essential role as material and immaterial assets for promoting the new housing and the long-term management of the estate. An often-used term in colloquial Swedish for this type of building with subsequent real-estate management is the Master Builder’s Management model, in the following MBM model.The MBM model refers to a former legal requirement of the first national Swedish building act of 1874 that building entrepreneurs had to be approved by the municipal building administration as means to avoid overcrowding in poorly built housing. Even after the reform of the building act in 1931, the title was associated with great societal esteem, but achieved during the rest of the 20th century a connotation of being either obsolete or representing building quality. The MBM model is in stark contrast to management models that have evolved since the 1990s. These models are influenced by new public management in which the practical knowledge of building and maintenance becomes secondary to financial calculations and predictions.Nevertheless, the large majority of privately owned Swedish rental housing companies are managed according to principles that can associated with the MBM model. These principles suggest a continuous maintenance in line with the aesthetical and architectural vision, careful alignment between tenant profile and type of flat, and financial planning based on building degradation and local knowledge of market. The present study is focused on a housing company in the city of Malmö which openly adheres to the MBM model. Preliminary findings suggest that the choice of management model can be related to a personal view by the company owners that is motivated by an emotional attachment to the building craft and the building itself. The combination of architecture and an engaged ownership constitutes a complex system of agency in which maintenance, tenants and mutual connections creates a specific being-in-the-world-ness of real estate management. This phenomenon seems to be an essential factor for creating successful smaller rental housing companies that are mainly active on a local market.

    Barn och pedagoger ur ett genusperspektiv2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi har skrivit ett arbete om genus och jämställdhet i två förskolor. På dessa två förskolor har vi gjort undersökningar med hjälp av observationer och intervjuer. Undersökningarna har visat oss hur förskollärare och barnskötare tillämpar genus och jämställdhet i sina barngrupper. Med hjälp av litteratur och forskning har vi sedan sammanställt hur förskolorna jobbar med ämnet.

    Omställning till små hållbara bostäder: Hur produktdesign kan påverka och främja en omställning till hållbara bostäder2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study research how product design can influence and promote a transition to small sustainable homes through research and methods using Design for behaviour change. The study is based on previous research made on The Tiny House Movement (that started in the USA in the late 1990s) and examines the Swedish market for Tiny Houses through interviews with stakeholders in Sweden. The study is also based on theory from the areas of Sustainable development and Design for sustainable development. Through interviews, a target group of children was selected, and a list of requirements was written based on the theory and material collected from the interviews as well as from a supplementary investigation. The Design with intent method was used as a source of inspiration for the development of concepts, where two concepts were selected for further development and then analysed with the Harris profile method to find which concept best met the list of requirements. The final concept: a product intended to influence and promote children’s transitioning into small sustainable homes by allowing them to build different types of Tiny Houses on a small scale with drawings as guidance. The product, Tiny Tiny Houses, is intended to be used in the company of parents as an aid to teach learnings about alternative housing but is just as good for children to use on their own, with siblings, or in the company of other children. The product is similar to a backpack where the front is folded down to build Tiny Houses on a small scale with the help of building pieces similar to puzzle pieces that are pressed together. The product is easy to take out into nature to promote outdoor play. Nature is an important part of the concept as the child’s imagination together with nature will decorate the inside of the small houses.

    Musslor som material – En studie om att använda musslor för material utveckling genom en materialdriven designprocess för en cirkulär ekonomi2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Mussels feed on filtering water on algae and particles, which in turn have absorbed nitrogen and phosphorus. By cultivating, harvesting and efficient use of the mussels, you can help reduce eutrophication in the Sound. The purpose of this study has been to investigate the possibilities of using material driven design processes for creating new materials, for a circular economy by applying the raw material mussels. The main areas of study have been theories within design for sustainable development, circular economics and material driven design. Through a material driven design process, a biodegradable material has been developed that has the potential to be part of a circular economy. The result of the material development is presented in the form of a material concept that represents the technical and sensorial properties of the material.

    Malmbanan Diaries2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During an intense four day field trip, a group of nine PhD students and their supervisors – all part of the National Research School for Architecture and Planning in the Urban Landscape, APULA – set out to explore what may be considered the outback of Western Europe’s conurbations, the transnational region of Kiruna - Narvik. Both “remote” and “resourceful”, “threatened” and “thriving” (equally relative notions), this region seemed to offer possibilities to reflect upon many of the current tendencies influencing contemporary planning practice and research. And we were not disappointed. From the very first encounter with the municipality of Kiruna, whose foundation as an urban conglomeration is now literally cracking, to the last glimpses of cosmopolitan Narvik, competing for the cruiser ships’ attention, we found ourselves embedded in a multilayered urban narrative. Following the throbbing of the iron ore carriages running along Malmbanan, the rail link connecting Kiruna, Abisko and Narvik, we tried to get a grasp of what is both “the last wilderness of Europe” and perhaps its most important urban “testing grounds”. The aim of the field trip was to provide ample room for each and every participant to try out, interrogate and reflect upon their different research topics in relation to a totally new setting, as such also linking their subject matters and methods to the general conditions for spatial research. Through journalistic and improvisational approaches, a collaborative map emerged, not only actualizing a shifting and sprawling urbanity, but also the rambling and trailing of research as such. The result of the workshop is the following collaborative diaries; a composite travelogue of a thought provoking passage on the fringes of urbanity. Our guides throughout this dislocation have been Anders Johansson and Erik Wingquist of Testbedstudio, who both generously and enthusiastically shared their experience with us and competently and creatively coordinated the final outcome. Without Anders and Erik we would probably have gone astray, geographically as well as conceptually. But we got back safely, and if there is a conclusion to be formulated, it should be future oriented. The following is a narrative or a map, the outcomes and destinations of which hopefully are as numerous as its points of departure.

    Den delade studentbostaden: Om arkitekturens inverkan på människan och viktiga kvaliteter i hemmiljö2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The quality of the home environment have a direct impact on the individual’s living conditions and influence the quality of life. Student residential belongs to the category of temporary homes, which implies less expectations on the quality of the accommodation due to legislation. This becomes problematic since the students, generally spend many hours in their home and the home environment usually also works as place for studies. Student residential as both a home and work space is a relevant aspect in the design of future student housing, since the expected spread of digitized education. The aim of the thesis is to identify what constitutes good student housing. In order to understand that, the relationship between the built environment and people, the perception of home environment and housing, which architectural qualities contribute to the well- being of the home and have a positive impact on the experience of home environment, which needs that can be considered as humanly unifying and which specific needs and preferencesthat exist within the target group of students are investigated. The theoretical framework has been formed from the scientific fields of architecture, sociology, psychology and philosophy. Arguments made at different times are seen in comparison to each other and illustrate how the view of the home and its primary functions changes over time. Literature and database searches result in the compilation of eight indicators that are important to consider in the design of future student housing, these are; context, spatial form, daylight and indoor climate, levels of socialand private, the positioning of spaces in relation to each other, enclosure versus openness, opportunity for variety and materials and detailis.The indicators serve as a guide in the designof a design proposal for a student residence in Malmö. To meet all these needs in a dwelling solution, limited by the students’ budget and efficiency requirements, a concept for a shared flat directed to two students was developed. Two students living together was also a strategy applied to make it easier incorporating with the social community, in the building between the students and in the city between the students and the university life. To share a situation with a personin the same circumstances are described by the students as one way of increase the experienceof safety. When people feel safe a will to explore arise which leads to personal development. A drawing analysis of four existing student residences in Malmö and an understanding from Malmö University’s Campus Plan 2040 have contributed with additional elements to the analysis, based on the awareness of the impact of place and context in designing good architecture. For further understanding of the target group, five university students living in Malmö have been interviewed on issues related to qualities and needs at home and views on home environment and student housing. The designed outcome were presented to the students and led to a deeper discussion on life in student residential which parts that experienced good and what could be improved and the challenging issues could be identified in the design proposal. The conversations with the students confirmed previous research in the areas of perception in home environment and student housing, thus also the relevance of the indicators. The interviews led to suggestions for further development of the design proposal and a discussion about the complexity of the design of student housing, due to competing values that are put in relation to each other. The study shows that a need for personal expression and flexibility within the dwelling and a balance between privacy and interaction is required. Both privacy, identity formation and access to community are seen as particularly important in the formative period of life while studying. These subjects are, together with the indicators, seen as areas for further investigation and as a reply on what today’s student housing, to varying degrees, lacks and can thus be a suggestion for what should be developed further in the design of future student housing.

    Ansvarig för ansvar2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats handlar om vilket förhållande grafiska designers på kommunikationsbyråer i Sverige har till corporate social responsibility (CSR) när det används i marknadsföring. CSR definieras och relevant teori på området presenteras. Baserat på en enkätundersökning som gått ut till olika byråer i Sverige görs sedan en deskriptiv analys vars resultat därefter diskuteras i förhållande till den presenterade teorin. Undersökningen visar att det finns en positiv bild av CSR på svenska byråer och många ser det som en möjlighet att göra gott i sin yrkesutövning, trots medvetenhet kring etiska betänkligheter.

    En resa i toner och rytmer - En studie om musik i förskolan2020Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I förevarande studie har jag undersökt hur musicking kan utvecklas i en barngrupp samt hur det kan främja användandet av musik i en barngrupp. Detta har jag ställt i relation till Smalls teori om musicking och till Holmbergs och Thörnquists studier om musik i förskolan för att kunna analysera musik i en förskolekontext. 11 barn var delaktiga i studien. Jag har använt mig av observationer för att samla in mitt material. I min analys har Smalls begrepp musicking, med teorin om agerande- och lyssnande aktör, varit den huvudsakliga utgångspunkten. Som komplement till Smalls teori om agerande- och lyssnande aktör har jag valt att använda Holmbergs begrepp spelare: samspelare, igångspelare, motspelare och medspelare. Dessa spelare används som underkategorier till Smalls begrepp lyssnande aktör och agerande aktör för att beskriva vilka olika roller barnen i studien intar under musikstunderna, under konserten samt i observationerna före och efter. Från musikprojektets början till dess slut ser jag en utveckling av musikanvändandet hos barnen. Jag ser att barnen använder musik och andra delar av musikprojektet i sin fria lek både under och efter musikprojektet. Då musicking handlar om hela den kontext där musiken framställs (Small, 1998) är studien inte bara inriktad mot själva muciserandet utan också andra uttryck i kontexten. Det blir också synligt i studien att barnen inte bara för ut musiken i den fria leken utan också andra uttryck som använts i projektet.

    En mer omtyckt säkerhet: Hur kan en brandvarnare utformas för att vara mer estetiskt tilltalande?2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project have explored the question - How can a smoke alarm be designed to be more aesthetically pleasing for the user?

    The Swedish Agency for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning [MSB] has long pursued a zero vision for Sweden with the goal that no one should die in a fire (MSB, 2021a). A crucial factor for the goal to succeed is that every home has a functioning smoke alarm. With effective smoke alarms in all homes, as many as 40% of deaths could be prevented (Runefors, Johansson & van Hees, 2016).

    The study was carried out on the basis of a user-centered approach where qualitative interviews with five informants and requirements from the European standard for the design of smoke alarms have formed the basis for the development of the project.

    Based on the interviews, it emerged that the informants were largely negative about the design of existing smoke alarms. These were perceived as cheap pucks in white plastic.

    It turned out that a low price, small size and an easy installation without the need for drilling were the most important features for the users. They also stated that they did not like to change batteries and requested the opportunity for increased visual unity with other furnishings. Natural materials and soft shapes were the most sought after properties for the design.

    The knowledge contribution lies in the discovery of the difficulties in discussing Aesthetics with the informants. This was a clarifying insight into the differences between academic and general language for describing aesthetic impressions.

    The result of the project was a small smoke alarm with a body in solid wood, a large button for testing and silencing of the alarm together with a battery life of atleast 10 years.

    “They really looked, looked and looked”: Contemporary dance, disability and the circulation of emotions2024In: Alter – European Journal of Disability Research, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 5-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past decade, several inclusive dance projects, in which professional dancers with and without disabilities collaborate, have been started in Sweden. The article explores disabled and able-bodied dancers’ and leaders’ experiences of and strategies for managing gazes and emotions – in encounters with the audience and other surrounding people – from a phenomenological perspective. Eleven qualitative interviews were conducted. The interviewees meet gazes filled with benevolence, surprise, pity and fascination. The emotions stick to the disabled dancers’ bodies, distance them from their own bodies and arouse uneasiness that needs to be handled. However, disabled dancers and disabled persons in the audience may also meet in the gaze of recognition. The companies’ internal gazes are important, too. When disabled dancers are only physically integrated or when differences are hidden, the potential for change gets lost. If choreographers and audiences succeed in looking beyond the body itself, an empathetic identification may take place. Another strategy is to completely break with voyeurism by blocking all gazes. The companies show new ways of interacting, thus expanding the possibilities for both able and disabled bodies.
