Due to the societal changes, çeyiz is under a transformation. By looking at the past and speculating about the future of çeyiz, our research question emerged: Can we envision scenarios that would turn the existing transformation of this tradition into preferable futures? We answered this question by conducting online focus-groups, auto-ethnography sessions and expert interviews. Based on our analysis, the idea of a Manifesto has emerged. This manifesto was embroidered on a fabric reflecting the stories, memories and desires of the women with whom we interviewed. To spread out the message of the manifesto, we decided to make a short film that gives rise to discussions around the issues entangled within çeyiz.</span></p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Hazal Gümüş Çiftçi , Seçil Uğur Yavuz https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4408 Reimagining lace in a digital space 2021-04-20T21:23:02+02:00 Cecilia Heffer Cecilia.Heffer@uts.edu.au <p><em>This paper presents how a contemporary lace practice explored the medium of animation as a</em><em> digital tool for craft research.

The author, Wuon-Gean Ho, studied the craft of traditional woodblock printmaking in Japan, and demonstrates planning, carving and printing of a woodblock print.</p> <p>The first observation is that an alteration of the time-base of the film and subsequent manipulation of the soundscape can provide embodied affects. Secondly the film refers to the effect of mirror-touch-synaesthesia with close macro shots and intimate angles. Thirdly, the use of a birds’ eye point of view, with the hands of the artist in the same anatomical position as the viewers’ hands, enables the gaze of the viewer to mimic that of the maker, conveying haptic knowledge through poetic means.The voiceover to the film is made with deliberate reference to ASMR videos that engender a sense of intimacy. The non-objectivity of the recording process is commented upon. The conclusion is that constructed scenarios might convey more than real-time truthful indexical footage.</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Wuon-Gean Ho https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4406 Ways of Tacit Knowing 2021-04-20T21:04:40+02:00 Joakim Seiler joakim.seiler@conservation.gu.se Lars Eriksson lars.g.eriksson@oru.se Tina Westerlund tina.westerlund@conservation.gu.se Gunnar Almevik gunnar.almevik@conservation.gu.se <p><em>A common way to describe craft knowledge is through the figure of speech it's in your hands. With this description, there is no attempt made to explain the complex knowledge which is present in craft. One reason why these explanations are rarely articulated is that they consist of sensory judgments. With this film, Ways of Tacit Knowing, we argue that, with the help of film media, it is possible to decode and articulate some of the knowledge content embodied in craft that is often described as tacit knowledge. We, the producers of this film, are experienced craftspeople, which makes us at once both subjects and objects of the research—a methodology akin to auto-ethnography. In the film, we present examples of situations from practice in our different craft fields: the practice in cultivation and management in gardening and the practice of culinary crafts situated in the kitchen and in the dining room.

The distance or rather the proximity between these two places is given importance in this filmed research article. In the 1930s, a farmer found a wooden chest in Mästermyr containing hundreds of forged tools and other artefacts. During a restoration of the Romanesque Hemse church in the 1890s, reused parts of a stave church were discovered in the wooden floor. The hypothetical question that is investigated in this study is whether the tools from Mästermyr were used in the construction of Hemse stave church in the early 1100’s? This filmed article analyzes and compares the traces of toolmarks in Hemse stave church and the woodworking tools from the Märstermyr finding. Through a forensic examination involving 3D scanning with structured light, 3D printing and reconstruction of tools and woodworking procedures, it is revealed that several toolmarks in the stave church correspond to the characteristics of woodworking tools in the Mästermyr find. The tool's shape, dimensions and mode of operation are traced in its negative imprint in the stave church’s oak wood.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 camilla Groth; Gunnar Almevik, Bertil Pärmsten, Magnus Sjöholm https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4404 Crafting research communication in building history 2021-04-20T20:43:45+02:00 Gunnar Almevik gunnar.almevik@conservation.gu.se Jonathan Westin jonathan.westin@lir.gu.se <p><em>This research is presented through an interactive application. A virtual reconstruction based on the remains from a medieval stave church is used as a case study to re-establish the historic building as a tangible place and assemblage. Augmented by virtual reality, the research focuses on the sensuous aspects of the stave church as a whole—where architecture, artefacts, light, and materials interact—through the movements of approaching, entering, and dwelling. The research output is a virtual reconstruction, or a virtual diorama, that “re-members” the stave church elements and re-contextualises contemporaneous religious artefacts that have been dismembered and diffused in various exhibitions and deposits. The contribution in this research is methodological, seeking to test and provide a case to discuss how non-traditional research outcome can be crafted to elicit the sensuous aspects of research and still attend to the rigor of science. We seek to methodologise the digital artefact as a research output but also as a means for testing hypothesis and observing the effects when enacting the environment. The connection to the craft sciences concerns both the empirical material, the wooden stave church as a crafted object, and the exploration of an interactive application as a research output or hermeneutic device in the research process.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></em></p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Gunnar Almevik, Jonathan Westin https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4403 Crafting short films 2021-04-20T20:35:10+02:00 Päivi Fernström paivi.fernstrom@helsinki.fi Mikaela Dahlberg Mikaela.dahlberg@helsinki.fi Sirviö Sirviö eeva-leena.sirvio@helsinki.fi Henna Lahti henna.lahti@helsinki.fi <p class="FAAbstract"><span lang="EN-US">In this article, we focus on film making as a part of craft studies and narrative inquiry.

This requires either socialization between practitioners or a systematic collection of practice descriptions, such as in a manual. However, there is always a risk that knowledge that is difficult to put into words will never be communicated. The aim of this paper is to show how theoretical perspectives can be used as analytical tools to help us develop methods that support the communication of craft knowledge. Using an approach of research through practice in the field of gardening, and combining a tripartite theory of knowledge with a SECI-model analysis, I will discuss how it is possible to make practitioners’ subjective knowledge more readily available to others. </p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Tina Westerlund https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4361 Editorial.

Damask weaving still exists among private practitioners, but what happens to the knowledge when nobody knows how to dress a loom and weave anymore? The aim of this study is to describe and compare damask weaving from a learning perspective in order to generate knowledge of how damask weaving is described in the literature and how the knowledge is communicated to increase understanding of the learning process and to generate a theoretical understanding of practical knowledge transfer. The method used is a literature study and open interviews with people who teach damask weaving. The study shows that the literature does not provide enough information on how to dress and weave damask. The interviews give a deeper understanding of the practical knowledge. The analysis shows that it is difficult to use only cognitive reading as interpretation from the body and hands are needed and the different steps need to be dissected in detail.</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Ek.Lic.

People and sheep cooperatively produce wool, maintain the land through conservation grazing, and facilitate heritage activities while external and internal conditions and forces, like changing economic and demographic factors, provide challenges and friction. An ecological study of wool crafts in context requires attention to creative processes, tools, materials, landscapes, and human and other-than-human animals that are engaged in complex flows of activity and meaning with one another. Both ethnographic encounters and autoethnographic reflections on craft practice provide vital insight into these entanglements.</span></p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Mathilde Frances Lind https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4212 Tutankhamun’s collar 2021-02-22T12:33:34+01:00 Marie Ekstedt Bjersing marie.ekstedtbjersing@saterglantan.se <p class="p2">The aim of this paper is to discuss what happens when repeating a reconstruction of the same textile. The author of this article is also the craftsperson that made the four reconstructions presented. The original collar reconstructed belonged to Tutankhamun. The collar is circular, woven in a circle. Before the reconstructions, this method of weaving circular shapes had not been described. The first reconstruction focused on the collar. Fifteen years later, three additional reconstructions were made. This time, the focus was to reconstruct the craft, by the use of fewer, simpler tools. Parallel to practical work there was an exploration of how to make documentation. One conclusion in the project is when changing focus from reconstructing a textile to reconstructing a craft, more similarity to the original was achieved.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Marie Ekstedt Bjersing https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4211 An approach to boat documentation 2021-02-22T12:17:53+01:00 Fredrik Leijonhufvud fredrik.leijonhufvud@conservation.gu.se <p>In this contribution, I present a methodological approach for the documentation of craft objects, including a comparison of traditional analogue methods and modern digital photogrammetry.

In over a millennium, the weave structure of samitum in these fragments was used in all patterned silk. In the medieval it was displaced in favor for other structures. It has lapsed into obscurity for weavers today. <br />For several reasons the study of these silks has been difficult. The fragments are fragile. They were not made in Norway. Few have mastered this weaving technique. <br />Is it possible to reconstruct these ancient silks, based on the knowledge gained from studying historical silks and experience acquired from using the structure in modern textiles? This article is about my attempt to do so, and also my reflections of the possible longtime impact on these silks on the weaving tradition in Norway.</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Åse Eriksen https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4206 Theorising craft practices through sketching 2021-02-22T11:04:42+01:00 Camilla Gåfvels camilla.gafvels@konstfack.se Viveca Lindberg viveca.lindberg@hsd.su.se <p>This article explores how craft practice is theorised through sketching, by comparing narratives about the role of sketching from interviewed Swedish upper secondary textile design and floristry education teachers, and aiming to discern connection to curriculum. The theory and methods used in the article are influenced by Ivor Goodson’s work on subject knowledge and curriculum change (1998). Empirical data was obtained from multiple sources, including interviews with four teachers. The findings reveal that, while sketching has been intrinsic to textile design and seamstress vocational knowing for considerable time, sketching is a relatively new phenomenon within floristry vocational knowing and education; essentially dating from the 2011 Swedish educational reform. The discussion claims that sketching provides means to theorise craft practice, through providing an intermediary level between the abstract (theory) and the concrete (objects) within the practice</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 camilla Gåfvels, Viveca Lindberg https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4205 Craft as More-Than-Human 2021-02-22T09:59:08+01:00 Ragnar Vennatrø rvenn@online.no Harald Bentz Høgseth Harald.Hogseth@ntnu.no <p>This article considers craft science and practice-led research in light of more-than-human approaches to practice under the heading posthumanism, as found within humanities and social sciences in recent years. Practice-led research within craft science, represents a vital and ground-breaking field of inquiry, as an embodied subjective field of examination with an impressive ability to gain deep knowledge of various forms of skilled and/or natural practices. One aspect of practice that this research seems less able to grasp, is a broader practical connection between multiple ontologies of human and non-human practice. Going beyond a purely human phenomenology of craft, this article seeks a more symmetrical and post-anthropocentric approach to knowledge and materiality, as practice in multiple ontologies. This would mean a shift in how craft science view practice, from being a strictly operational aspect adhering to human practitioners, to practice as an ongoing more-than-human process by which phenomena (and practitioners) are brought into being and are maintained.</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Ragnar Vennatrø , Harald Bentz Høgseth https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4204 Exploring craft practice in learning communities 2021-02-22T09:48:23+01:00 Trine Møller moellertrine@live.dk Kirstine Riis kirstine.riis@usn.no <p>This paper presents an initial research project to explore what characterizes knowledge production in craft practice situated in an informal/neutral learning arena outside the education institution.

However, the digitalization that influences all practices brings us new kinds of making processes in which the ‘digital tools’ have a profound impact on the practitioner’s experience – also in the context of art, craft and design. This study explores the maker’s experience from a practice-led approach to understanding the subjective experience with clay 3D printing. To open up the 3D printing process with clay using our embodied understanding, the full process is viewed metaphorically – borrowing from music.

The objective of this present study is to explore pre-primary students’ designing and making processes involving both traditional and digital craft elements, and how their learning of everyday technologies can be supported. The data consists of video recorded sessions, where pre-primary students (n=19, aged 5–6 years) were creating felted “Power Creatures” with soft circuits. The results indicate that with adult and peer student cooperation, pre-primary students are able to create original creatures and use digital elements as a part of their craft product. Playing is endorsed as a learning method to support pre-primary education in both tangible and abstract elements of technology</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Virpi Yliverronen , Marja-Leena Rönkkö , Kaiju Kangas https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4197 Approaches to Craft Studies at Higher Education 2021-02-21T16:00:08+01:00 Sirpa Kokko sirpa.kokko@helsinki.fi <p><em>The purpose of this article is to explore the various approaches to craft studies at higher education institutions. Based on fieldwork observations and document analysis of the curricula of four European and one US university craft study programmes, similarities and differences were found. The similarities concerned the pedagogy to acquire basic skills and the urge to keep up craft traditions. The differences concerned the broader aims of study and the students’ prospective career paths. The following approaches to craft studies in higher education were detected: 1. Educational crafts, 2. Traditional crafts, 3. Critical crafts, 4. Cultural heritage of crafts, and 5.

The research explores how virtual reality (VR), using Oculus Rift and 3D-printing in clay is suitable to link to the process of throwing vessels within ceramic crafts. The quality of the crafted objects in question is based on the ability of the presented technique to combine throwing and pattern-making as an integrated process while building up the thrown object, here named virtual pattern-throwing. Furthermore, it is argued that this use of VR for throwing makes it possible to recall a hands-on experience and thus weave the quality of the traditional craftsmanship with the virtual within the process of making vessels.</span></p> <p> </p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Flemming Tvede Hansen https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4192 Artistic Expression and Material Limitations 2021-02-17T16:39:58+01:00 Anne Solberg Anne.solberg@usn.no <p>This paper explores the iterative process of striving for artistic expressivity and developing crafting techniques in a porcelain-making project.

Grounded in a relational approach that has influenced a multitude of studies in various fields, the notion of sociomateriality accounts for the constitutive entanglement of the social and the material in practice. How this entanglement occurs or what exactly is subjected to it, however, remains largely unarticulated, especially in studies where the handling of materials lies at the heart of the research process. By adopting a relational approach operationalized through qualitative network analysis, we traced the sociomaterial trajectories of a studio project to identify the moments in which various actors were entangled. The resulting network visualizes these moments and assists in explicating how they enabled the instantiation of intersubjective design ideas.</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Luis Vega, Maarit Mäkelä, Tzuyu Chen, Pirita Seitamaa-Hakkarainen https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4190 Crystals as Co-creators 2021-02-17T16:11:20+01:00 Sofie Boons sofie.boons@uwe.ac.uk <p>Grown crystals are used for a range of novel innovations supporting a wide array of industries.

Fish skins were regarded as a useful material for parkas, boots, mittens and hats. Today the interest in making use of fish skin, an undeveloped by-product, is on the rise. By using different tanning techniques from cultures around the globe, fish skin has shown great promise as a material for clothing, as well as other products. There is also a desire to be able to tan these skins with environmentally friendly techniques. Today most animal skins are tanned using chromium and other cheap toxic substances, raising question around health and environmental safety. The knowledge of how to use these traditional tanning methods has been preserved by woman from cultures along the Arctic Circle stretching from the Nordic countries to Canada and Japan. In order to keep this knowledge alive for future generations, Sweden has re-introduced the possibility to receive a Master tanner´s title, increasing the incentive and status for those studying these important subjects. This is a report and narrative review of the field, and insights I have acquired over 3 decades; from student to Master Tanner.</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Lotta Rahme https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4182 H.D.’s Palimpsest and a weaving practice 2021-02-16T13:41:48+01:00 Jordana Infeld jinfeld@deakin.edu.au <p>The relationship between text and textile is ancient and multi-faceted. This paper aims to extend this relationship by placing a weaving practice in dialogue with H.D.’s novel Palimpsest. Weaving has a distinctive relationship with time, and therefore provides fertile ground for thinking through the way time is depicted in literary fiction. Time operates in weaving at various scales and rhythms, and Palimpsest furthers this understanding of time through its own rhythms and invocations of the image of the palimpsest. Drawing on my own weaving practice, my aim is to provide an account of how a craft practice might enable a particular method of reading texts that extends beyond traditional close reading methods.</p> 2021-05-10T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Jordana Infeld https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/4181 Humanitarian Handicrafts 2021-02-16T13:35:04+01:00 Rebecca Gill r.gill@hud.ac.uk Claire Barber c.l.barber@hud.ac.uk Bertrand Taithe Bertrand.taithe@manchester.ac.uk <p class="FAAbstract"><span lang="EN-US">This paper asks how craft practice can inform historical reconsiderations of handicraft produced within a humanitarian socio-economic framework (to support humanitarian aims or fund-raising initiatives), and in turn explores how historical processes become materialised in contemporary humanitarian craftwork.

At the same time, this gives rise to a multiplicity of concerns for a contemporary craft practitioner undertaking a form of creative expression identifiable by its humanitarian purpose.

In the workshop, the thirteen participants were asked to design a motif to convey a message to themselves, to the group or to the society. Through a group discussion, the motifs stemming from personal experiences were knitted, shared and discussed.

Concurrently, humanity is facing an increasingly carbon-and-freshwater-constrained world, combined with escalating realities of climate change and ecosystem degradation; thus, our means of production must evolve. An integrative framework and model has been developed to support designers (and other stakeholders) working on regenerative systems of production.

This is exemplified in two different systemic design case studies focusing on social and environmental justice via the lens of empathy. The design studio and/or design practice tend to be fused in this article because my design studios have always focused on practice-based, real-life built projects, while my commercial and not-for-profit practices have always implemented design education in real-life built projects through internships and/or other student participation. Therefore, my approach fully follows the pathway of ‘learning by doing’(Dewey, 1997), focusing on systemic feedback looping of integral real-life experience and reflection through research and practice, targeting brighter post-Anthropocene futures.</p> 2020-12-24T00:00:00+01:00 Opphavsrett 2020 Marie Davidova https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/3738 Perspectives on aesthetics and vulnerability through the life stories of five young men 2020-11-08T18:39:07+01:00 Marie Møller-Skau marie.moller-skau@usn.no <p>This article examines what five young men in vulnerable positions tell about their experiences with aesthetics and actualises aesthetics in the context of health and life skills, emphasised in the Norwegian curriculum (2020). For research purposes, an interview with an indirect approach is used to gain insights into these young men’s experiences and lives by allowing them to fully play the roles as storytellers. According to the young men’s stories, their experiences with aesthetics can be presented through three categories of findings: (1) the connection between their life situations and aesthetics, (2) their emotional moments of aesthetic experiences and (3) their experiences of aesthetics as meaningful phenomena. Furthermore, the findings are discussed against aesthetic theory, which highlights how emotions can be experienced, reflected, symbolised, expressed and sorted out through aesthetics. Thus, a picture of aesthetic experiences is drawn as emotional processes.</p> 2021-04-19T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2021 Marie Møller-Skau https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/3704 Navigating methodological perspectives in Doctoral research through creative practice 2020-10-21T09:12:51+02:00 Kirstine Riis kriis@usn.no Camilla Groth camilla.groth@usn.no <p>Academic research in crafts, conducted by crafts persons from an insider perspective and through practice-led approaches, is still just emerging and ways of conducting research is developing with each research project.

The study was framed in light of Alain Findeli’s writings to challenge and inform current developments in design studio educational practices. To explain the solving of complex, ill-structured problems through design, Findeli proposed systems theory as a holistic philosophical perspective of the design process and design education. By asking what design is and how to teach it, I reiterate Findeli’s ideas on design and design education.

The article has two aims: To bring neurobiological knowledge into the making disciplines to better understand the making process; To mediate terminological differences between disciplines and open up new research-based hypotheses and theoretical foundations for future interdisciplinary studies. Findings include three topics for further exploration: 1) The overflow of information in cerebellum and the maker’s experience of intense internal focus. 2) Cerebellum’s function as generator of deliberate actions without involving the conscious self and the so-called preconscious element of the maker’s negotiation. 3) The priority of neural circuits between sensory input and muscle output in Cerebellum at the cost of neural circuits to cerebral cortex’ monitoring and self-reflection and the maker’s experience as being close to the material. These findings expand upon previous knowledge developed in studies of making processes from sociocultural and philosophical point of view, and are useful for researchers and teachers interested in understanding and advancing the making disciplines and arts and craft education.</p> 2020-09-25T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2020 Marte Sørebø Gulliksen https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/3539 Tanatologiens poetikk 2020-10-20T16:35:44+02:00 Jadwiga Blaszczyk-Podowska jadwiga.b.podowska@usn.no <p class="FASammendragBrdtekst">Essayet har vært en måte å tolke mitt skapende arbeid på.

In causal loop diagram models, phenomena are graphed as nodes, with connections between them indicating a control relationship. Such models provide mechanisms for stakeholder collaboration, problem finding and generative insight and are powerful . These functions are valued in design thinking, but the potential of these models may yet be unfulfilled. We introduce the notion of “leverage measures” to systemic design, adapting techniques from social network analysis and systems dynamics to uncover key structures, relationships and latent leverage positions of modelled phenomena. We demonstrate their utility in a pilot study.

Working within and towards systems of production that intend to be truly circular and regenerative necessitates that designers (and other stakeholders) have an increased understanding and intuition of how ecosystems function—an eco-literacy. To this end, the framework is based on foundational metabolisms (producers, consumers and decomposers), and their interactions with each other and ‘nutrient pools’ within their collective environment. The model proposes that ecosystems are fractals of plants and are one collective metabolism. Some ‘ecosystem concepts’ are also developed that can be worked with as they are or used as a base for analogies for those working directly with, or developing frameworks for, integrative systems of production.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Keywords:</em> <br>Systemic design, ecological design, biomimetics, circular economy, systems ecology.</p> 2020-12-17T00:00:00+01:00 Opphavsrett 2020 Tom Snow https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/3367 In proportion 2020-02-27T12:18:32+01:00 Luke Feast luke.feast@aut.ac.nz <p>Avoiding the worst impacts of global warming is a matter of systemic change and political will. An easily adaptable political system would be resilient to the effects of climate change, since a government could maintain effective control by implementing incremental changes. However, except for the United Kingdom (UK), Israel and New Zealand, all other states have rigid codified constitutions. Drawing on cybernetics and variety engineering, the study of New Zealand’s constitutional system presented in this article suggests that a rigid codified constitution has merits for addressing long-term problems, such as climate change and sustainable development.</p> <p>Cover image photo: <span style="font-size: 11.0pt;" lang="EN-US">Christoph Strässler</span></p> 2020-01-28T00:00:00+01:00 Opphavsrett 2020 Luke Feast https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/3239 Hvor var det det butta, hvor er det blitt av alle gutta? 2019-09-24T10:48:59+02:00 Ingvard Bråten inbr@hvl.no Jorunn Spord Borgen Jorunn.Spord.Borgen@hvl.no <p>I denne artikkelen søker vi svar på hvilke kjønns- og likestillingsrelaterte utfordringer kunst og håndverk står overfor i dag.

Med bakgrunn som arkitekt har hun hatt et innsideperspektiv på de utfordringene de skapende profesjonsfagene sto overfor. Som en av de få arkitekter som også hadde doktorgrad fikk hun ansvar for utviklingen av doktorgradsprogrammet på Arkitektur- og designhøgskolen i Oslo (AHO). Hun utviklet kunnskapskonseptene ‘the making professions’ og ‘the making disciplines’ for å synliggjøre og håndtere de skapende profesjonenes utfordringer som selvstendige forskbare (researchable) fagfelt i møte med etablerte akademiske disipliner. I 1995 sto hun sentralt i avgjørelsen om å åpne doktorprogrammet på AHO for designere og designdidaktikere, noe som har spilt en avgjørende rolle for framveksten av et designdidaktisk forskningsfelt i Norge. Innsatsen til Dunin-Woyseth går langt ut over det å være én persons innsats, den eksemplifiserer hvordan utdanning og forskning med et innsideperspektiv på kunnskapsutvikling har avgjørende betydning for et demokrati der også representanter for praktiske profesjoner må kunne artikulere sin innsidekunnskap med akademisk troverdighet. Framhevingen av et innsideperspektiv (Ryle, 1945) og viktigheten av aktive fagmiljøer (Becher &amp; Trowler, 2001) setter også Halina Dunin-Woyseths innsats inn i et større perspektiv.

In the latter context, architecture is a way of thinking and looking at people, spaces, interrelations and interactions. Proclaimed by IDEO’s Tim Brown as one of the best system design forms of education available, architecture has potential in fields beyond the physical. In keeping with the views of renowned systems thinker Russell Ackoff, who graduated in architecture before focusing on operations research, the question arises whether the skills of architects can be applied more broadly in system and innovation design. This paper describes how architects deal with context and complexity from the perspective of the practice-oriented architectural programming method. From its early days in the 1960s, it offered architects a viable basis for an applied architectural design thinking method, but did not receive widespread attention from practitioners and academics. The method is critically assessed and compared to the known forms of design thinking from the viewpoint of industrial design. By describing a real-life project and students’ work from a newly created seminar in a department of architecture, the paper investigates the current and future relevance of an advanced version of architectural programming for architectural practice and education. It stresses the desirability of reinforcing the core skills of architects by developing a design thinking method rooted in architecture, which needs to be taught, developed and disseminated. In the long term, it is argued, architecture should be considered and integrated as a ‘systems and innovation design discipline’ in the fields of systems thinking and innovation research.</p> 2019-08-05T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2019 Christos Chantzaras https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/2963 Performance-oriented architecture and urban design 2019-08-30T10:46:04+02:00 Michael Ulrich Hensel Michael.Hensel@aho.no Søren S. Sørensen sss@aho.no <p class="Abstract"><span lang="EN-GB">This article discusses a performance-oriented approach to architectural and urban design that seeks to intensify the interaction between architectures and their specific settings and environments. The overarching aim is to expand performance-oriented design in architecture to urban design and to integrate architectural, urban design and landscape design into a multi-scalar and multi-domain approach. This effort is currently comprised of three distinct research by design efforts: [i] designs for urban areas with a focus on demographic and environmental aspects, [ii] designs for peripheral areas with a focus on preserving or restoring vital local bio-physical conditions and interrelations, and [iii] designs for rural areas that elaborate an integrative approach towards constructions and correlating land uses. In order to facilitate this approach, computational information-based design is linked with systems-thinking. The portrayed research was undertaken at the Research Centre for Architecture and Tectonics and the Advanced Computational Design Laboratory at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design over a period of five years from 2014 to 2018.</span></p> 2019-07-17T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2019 Michael Ulrich Hensel, Søren S.

In this paper, the particularities of these types of groups are characterised and categorised into ten different types of city makers. Generally, these types of city makers bring value to cities, but we conclude that this value could be enriched through more participatory approaches that stimulate crossovers and accelerate the transition towards sustainable futures. Therefore, we characterise the different identified types as potential ‘participatory’ city makers. However, these participatory approaches and the networks between them still need to be developed, while improving conditions and dynamics that can enable and enhance innovation in urban environments. Design and systems thinking could contribute valuable methods and perspectives to the development of these participatory and systemic approaches. Finally, the categorisation presented in this paper must enable a better understanding of the transformative capacity of these different types of city makers, necessary for flourishing and sustainable communities.</p> <p class="Abstract"><span lang="EN-GB">&nbsp;</span></p> 2019-08-12T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2019 Jotte Ilbine Jozine Charlotte de Koning, Emma Puerari, Ingrid Mulder, Derk Loorbach https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/2696 Crafting futures in Lebanese refugee camps 2019-08-30T10:45:39+02:00 Helen Avery Helen.Avery@cme.lu.se Nihal Halimeh Halimeh.Nihal@gmail.com <p>The initiative at the Burj El Barajneh camp is run by a network of local associations and aims at improving living conditions, services, infrastructure and livelihoods for the inhabitants.

Leitão renata.marques.leitao@umontreal.ca Solen Roth solendegrenoble@gmail.com <p>This article argues that, in collaboration with Indigenous [and non-Western local] communities, social designers should approach “culture” not only as a form of heritage that should be preserved and transmitted, but also as a project that weaves together heritage, current material circumstances, and desirable ideas for the future. We therefore examine the notion that every culture is intrinsically oriented towards the future, representing a trajectory that links the past to a projected ideal of well-being. Thus, cultural diversity leads to numerous trajectories and distinct futures, contrary to the colonial ideology according to which only one trajectory is possible: that which adheres to the project of eurocentric modernity. Based on a participatory research action project called Tapiskwan, which focused on the aspirations of the Atikamekw Nehirowisiwok, we propose that the ultimate goal of social designers should be to nurture local communities’ capacity to (re)create their own autonomous trajectories, in pursuit of the good life as their culture defines it. </p> 2020-12-24T00:00:00+01:00 Opphavsrett 2020 Renata M.

Gjennom å vise konkrete eksempler av striper som er materialisert på ulike måter i kunst og design viser artikkelen hvordan Schillers begreper kan brukes til å øve studenter og lærere i design- og kunstutdannelse til å se egen og andres praksis gjennom et kunstteoretisk blikk, og slik gi økt forståelse for sammenheng mellom teori og praksis.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2018-10-09T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2018 Arild Berg, Karen Disen https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/2681 Drawing as performance 2019-08-07T12:11:01+02:00 Theodor Barth theodor.barth@khio.no <p><em>The objective of the present article is to re-work and radically reframe a case study on drawing presented at the E&amp;PDE conference, hosted by OsloMet in the early autumn of 2017. The case study was experimental – involving a drawer, </em><em>a furniture designer, an MA student (at the time) and an anthropologist. The present article ventures to draw certain learning outcomes from the experiment. These are presently relevant in the context of the heritage of a drawing school founded in 1818 and in the wake of the current activities in artistic research (AR) at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO). The focus is on the educational aspects of ‘doing research’. The article queries the relation between drawing, writing and field research in the history of the school and currently in AR.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Keywords</em>:</strong> drawing, writing, field research, process, reframing, case study, comparison, first science, third-party readability, non-philosophy.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2018-10-09T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2018 Theodor Barth https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/2680 Profesjonskunnskap: fag, forskning og praksiserfaring 2020-11-27T12:35:55+01:00 Laila Belinda Fauske lailaf@oslosmet.no <p>Rammeplan for 5-årig lærerutdanning i praktiske og estetiske fag ble vedtatt juni 2020. For design, kunst og håndverk innebærer dette at 3-årig faglærerutdanning med master opphører. Lærerutdanningen skal være både forskningsbasert og vektlegge erfaringsbasert kunnskap. Eksempelvis utvides omfanget av undervisningspraksis. Endringen er utgangspunktet for denne artikkelen. Artikkelen tar opp det særegne ved profesjonskunnskap og divergensen mellom profesjonskunnskap og tradisjonelle vitenskapsfag. Divergensen drøftes på bakgrunn av en rapport fra 1974. Rapporten tar opp målsetting, organisering og studieinnhold for kommende hovedfag ved pedagogiske høgskoler, iverksatt fra 1976. Rapporten beskriver hvordan profesjonens særpreg skal gi retning til studiet. En liste over 10 ulike former for hovedfagsarbeid presenteres. Både eget kunstnerisk arbeid og læremiddelproduksjon ansees som relevante former for et hovedfagsarbeid. Denne artikkelen nærleser rapporten fra 1974 og argumenter for at drøftinger som føres der kan bidra til relevante diskusjoner, også ved innføringen av 5-årig lærerutdanning.</p> 2020-12-24T00:00:00+01:00 Opphavsrett 2020 Laila Belinda Fauske https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/2678 Begynnaropplæring i teikning 2019-08-07T12:08:50+02:00 Karen Brænne karenb@hivolda.no Janne Heggvoll heggvoja@hivolda.no <p><em>Artikkelen har begynnaropplæring i teikning som tema. Ved å studere fagstoff om teikneopplæring nytta ved norske grunnskulelærarutdanningar, utviklar denne teksten tre ulike teoretiske kategoriar som skildrar teiknemetodiske tilnærmingar. Kategoriane er forma med støtte frå lese- og skriveopplæringsfeltet og omgrepa analytiske og syntetiske tilnærmingar, samt kunnskapsteoretiske og læringsteoretiske posisjonar. I tillegg blir omgrepet progresjon ved Ralph Tyler (1948) nytta for å utdjupe det som kjem fram. Bidraget er meint å vere ein forsiktig start på å utvikle ei teikneteoretisk plattform til støtte for dei institusjonane som utdannar lærarar for dei minste i skulen.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2018-10-08T00:00:00+02:00 Opphavsrett 2018 Karen Braenne, Janne Heggvoll
