Industrial Interventions
Beskrivning av avhandling: 

In my research I explore the collision between mass produced and handmade article, where craft meets industry and the machine meets the hand. How can we create new expressions by combining the handmade surface with the machine made? Can something new be created when traditional handicraft is combined with existing industrial manufacturing processes? The research project also explores the hierarchies that bestow on materials and how the design process can add value to already existing materials and surfaces and challenge what we consider to be cheap and nasty. I am also investigating local manufacturing and the importance of making manufacturing processes visible, if we never see the production, we stop understanding it and the products we are surrounded with. I believe domestic production is today´s biggest luxury.
