Last week I had the chance to laser scan a new set of environments. I have just started sketching for a permanent art installation and these point cloud spatialities allow me to spend more time with the specific sites. I see great value in these three-dimensional drawings, as they contain many details that are not usually drawn by architects. Details that allow me to re-discover the space and empathize with its curiosities. Thank you Stockholm Konst for trusting me to come up with an inspiring project!
Memorabilia are objects that we save or collect because they remind us of people or events. When my grandmother passed away, my grandfather suffered a stroke and developed dementia. He was bothered by how the surroundings suddenly felt foreign. Through grandfather's music and personal items, we were able to find each other. I draw inspiration from memorabilia that can be found in many people's homes and my wish is to make more people experience the world as a little more familiar.
For the exhibition, I am showing a series of sculptural outdoor furniture organized around stage activity. The stage was created in collaboration with Barnens Å-hus and a group of children who filled it with good food and drink for everyone to enjoy.
BIG DATA DESIGN
"These new digital tools invite us into a complex world of infinite and instant possibilities. The tools we use feed back into the things that we make. However, the traces made by the data-driven wear and tear leave us with surprisingly manifold qualities. The traces from the digital and the physical wear and tear left by these new technologies communicate important humanistic values which more often are distinguished in the crafts”
