I have an MA in interaction design from the School of Arts and
Communication, Malmö University. After my studies I worked as
an interaction design at the Swedish television. My work there
dealt with integration of broadcast and social media.
In 2003 I started to work at the Interactive Institute, where I
also began a longstanding collaboration with Åsa Ståhl. In our
shared work at the Interactive Institute we focused on issues of
participation, storytelling and communication with the use of
everyday technologies. This was for example done through the
artistic research project [ordlekar].
To continue our shared work we started a collaborative PhD at
the School of Arts and Communication at Malmö University in 2008.
The basis of our research was the project Threads - a Mobile
Sewing Circle, which was a collaboration with the Swedish
Traveling Exhibitions amongst others. In early 2014 we defended our
thesis titled: Patchworking Publics-in-the-Making - design,
media and public engagement.
Between 2014 and 2016, I held a postdoc position at UID,
where I explore designerly public engagement, drawing on
participatory design, speculative design, critical making and
My interest in public engagement through design was articulated
in my thesis. Since then I have continued to explore this matter in
projects such as UNRAVEL/REPEAT, which focuses on obsolescence of
mobile phones, and HYBRID MATTERs, which focuses on hybrid matters
that emerges in a digital or post industrial society. As part of
HYMRID MATTERs me and Åsa Ståhl invite to a series of public
engagemang events where we engage with how we can continue to live
with or without plastics. The latest experiment is on composting
plastics. See more on: http://invitations.hybridmatters.net
