Ester Viktorina (2023) Malin O Bondeson
In this work, I want to show some excerpts from my grandmother's patriarchal resistance. The narrative and the photographs will be at the center. They will clarify Esters Lindberg's attempt to negotiate and renegotiate her position within the usual norm. The narratives and photographs will hopefully give an expanded understanding of what it could be like to live as a woman with a desire for freedom in Sweden during the early 20th century.

The Passions of Utopia is a collaborative artistic research project exploring futuremaking and storytelling through the lens of a 360-camera and telenovela tropes.

The Garage Tapes (2023) Tor Einar Bekken
Exploring the sound of the parking garage in the building where I live, using cheap Casio electric keyboards, low end melodicas and a recorder. All instruments, electronic or not, have been played live in the garage as if they were purely acoustic instruments, making this an artistic exposition exclusively, intended to make people consider and reflect upon what can be done with humble instruments in the right sonic environment. Videos shot with an iPhone 5. No overdubs, mix, mastering or other tampering with the actual sound.
