    Smart jewellery: measuring the unknown2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Self-tracking devices and apps often measure and provide interpretations of personal data in a rather straightforward way, for instance by visualising the speed and distance of a run or the quality of sleep during a night. There is however a growing number of devices that take the data analysis further by providing insights and algorithmic advices about domains of our lives that are otherwise thought of as difficult to grasp. This paper explores two devices of this kind, namely the Moodmetric and the ŌURA which are two recently released smart rings with associated mobile apps that claim to measure emotions and rest, promote happiness and help users to perform better. Whereas several studies have shed light over how users engage with self-tracking apps and devices, little attention has been paid to how these technologies stem from dreams, hopes and imaginaries of designers and developers. This paper approaches self-tracking from a producer perspective in order to frame how users and their everyday lives are imagined by designers and how these assumptions are built into the technologies. Empirically, the paper is based on a content analysis of blog posts, marketing materials and user guides from the ŌURA and Moodmetric companies along with video interviews with company representatives as well as recordings of their public appearances. Engaging with the field of software studies as well as the emerging field of self-tracking studies, this paper aims at providing a basis for further design oriented studies of self-tracking.

    The Androchair: Performing Gynaecology through the Practice of Gender Critical Design2017In: Design journal, ISSN 1460-6925, E-ISSN 1756-3062, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 181-198Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper highlights the important role that design plays when it comes to women's overall experiences of ther gynaecological examination. It exemplifies how the examination can become renegotiable through the practice of a critical design. We will reflect this in the design of the contemporary gynaecological examination chair (GEC). We used women's experiences as a starting point for the design of an Androchair (a conceptual male equivalent of the GEC), in order to make the experiences critically visible. Inspired by the view of the gynaecological examination as a performance where the Androchair is represented as a prop and was placed on a stage as a discussion object during a public seminar. The Androchair allowed for both critical and multiple readings of the GEC and through that, the gynaecology examination at large. Moreover, it stimulated a discussion about alternative ideas towards achieving a more positive experience. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.

    Designing Ubiquitous Media Services: Exploring the Two-Sided Market of Newspapers2016In: Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research, ISSN 0718-1876, E-ISSN 0718-1876, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The two-sided market of newspapers with its two customer groups, readers and advertisers, is changing due to digitalization. This former stable and profitable market has lately suffered from both decreasing subscription and advertiser revenue. In this paper we use the term ubiquitous media environments to represent the vision of future media environments enabling device independent mass-scale distribution of ubiquitous media services in integrated infrastructures. We build upon a two-year action research project where researchers worked together with the Swedish newspaper industry to envision future ubiquitous media services and explore the following research question: how can ubiquitous media services be designed to leverage and balance value in a two-sided market? Five examples of ubiquitous media services were developed in collaboration and thereafter evaluated. These services were then illustrated in movie clips to trigger discussions on how ubiquitous media services can be designed. Drawing on the value aspects of ubiquitous media services from an advertiser and reader point-of-view and the platform owner role of the newspapers in a future ubiquitous media environments, we describe and discuss how ubiquitous media services can be designed to leverage value for advertisers and readers, and how newspaper organizations can strategize ubiquitous media environments. © 2016 Universidad de Talca - Chile

    Konceptstudie luftfilter2017Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a concept study, done for the company Husqvarna Group AB,concerning a chainsaw air filter. In this study, research is done regardingalternative and improved solutions based on current construction.

    The thesis is the concluding course for the mechanical engineer program atHalmstad Högskola.

    Existing air filters on Husqvarna chainsaw are leaking unfiltered air, and accordingto the public, does not give a reliable impression. Therefore, the goal for thisproject is to analyse and then make suggestions on how Husqvarna in the futurecan improve the existing solution. To achieve this, relevant literature andmethods that have been used during education are applied.

    The project results in a concept called “kassett”, which meet the requirementsthat are built up during the way.

    A design anthropology approach to experiential futures and autonomous driving2018In: PDC '18 Proceedings of the 15th Participatory Design Conference: Short Papers, Situated Actions, Workshops and Tutorial - Volume 2 / [ed] Liesbeth Huybrechts et al., New York, NY: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018, article id 49Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between design anthropology and Participatory Design (PD) has developed along a shared interest in understanding interventions and possible futures. In this full-day workshop, we use future-oriented participatory and collaborative methodologies to expand our understanding of how we might further develop ethnographies of the possible and how a focus on imagination and unspoken experience of the making and using of possible future scenarios can underpin our understandings. We also discuss how the experience of and engagement with possible futures can enable novel modes of research practice, knowing and understanding. © 2018 ACM.
