Bachelor Degree work, Konstfack 2016
There is an intricate pattern to the weaving of words. A feeling of comfort in the rocking rhythms and steady repetitions. There is an image, intangible. I want to touch it.
Patterns of Poetry is a project aiming to explore visual expression with poetry as a starting point.
From a formal analysis of five different poems, a grid was developed based on the rhythmic pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables in each of the texts.
One line in the poem is represented by one line in the grid, and the resulting blocks were consequently colour-coded to mark three different aspects of the text: full rhyme, alliteration and repetition.
The result is a visual representation not of the imagery of the poem, but of the inner workings of its structure.
But you're so sociable! An informational zine about girls and women on the autism spectrum.
There are more boys than girls diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. However, that does not necessarily mean autism is more common among boys. New research indicates that because the diagnostic critera for the disorder has been developed based on how symptoms present themselves in boys, many young girls and women run the risk of going unnoticed and never being diagnosed.
The pages of the zine are in two different sizes, the smaller size containing information and the bigger one dedicated to personal notes and observations from inside the spectrum. The information is kept clear and simple to eliminate the need to ”read between the lines”, as this is something people on the autism spectrum might sometimes struggle with.
The Konstfack class of 2015 came together to create this manifesto, envisioning what we want our future working conditions to be like.
Featured illustrators: Nathalie Ruejas, Freja Wilhelmsson, Oskar Laurin, Martin Liljesand, Elin Sandström, Karin Bellander, Elisabet Ericsson.

A poster/broschure for 19 students' businesscards for the textile part of the Konstfack Vårutställning 2014 (Konstfack Degree Exhibition 2014, both master and bachelor degrees). We created an inverted font and pattern for the back of the poster, inspired by weavings leaving a mirrored tracing on the backside of the weave. We wanted to recognize the craft of textile and the detail which is needed in every piece.
Digital print on paper called "Textile". 300 prints in total.
Poster work for the exhibition Föremål för form. Konstfack 2013. Collaboration with Martin Liljesand and Nathalie Ruejas.
The Ambivalent Manifesto, or
I reserve the right to change my mind at any time.
A small book presenting the manifesto of ambivalence. The 16 pages inside the cover are unbound, making it possible to change the order of the text whichever way one might like. The pages are two-sided, with one side set in a very strict and minimal type and the other containing the same text but with expressive typography.
A series of xerographic experiments.
… where there is an insufficient opportunity for complete data collection to occur or there is inconsistent or contradictory information that needs clarification…
A visual experiment resulting in a series of images of imprecise scientific ambition.

The shadows of things past are staying with me, ever changing in the light of now.
