    fanmo jimte, DV, 26 min (2008) text by Magnus Bärtås: The town of Vulcan in Alberta, Canada was established as a farming community during the expansion of the Canadian Pacific Railroad in the beginning of the 20th century. The town’s symbol was nine silos which rose majestically over the flat landscape. In the 1960s conditions for agriculture deteriorated, farming became unprofitable for economic and climate reasons. The nine silos – “9 in line” – had become a collective symbol of hard work and industry, but burned down in 1971. During this time of recession for Vulcan, another Vulcan arose in the world of fiction: the planet Vulcan in Star Trek. The series, which began in 1966, is one of the greatest and most long-lived successes in television history and has generated a world-wide devoted fan culture. Early on, Star Trek fans began to make pilgrimages to Vulcan in Canada to express their devotion. Later on, the town embraced this linguistic mix and tried to exploit it to attract tourists. In 2003 a sculpture was made representing the Star Trek ship Enterprise which became the symbolic as well as real replacement of “9 in line” and marked a new era. In the film the story of Vulcan is told in Lojban, a language that has been created by linguists and technologists and absorbed by the Star Trek culture. Lojban and the example of Vulcan show how Star Trek fiction functions as a media text that shapes reality at the same time as it is taken over and extended by a group of consumers inventing their own social culture. Lina Persson talks about her film on Vulcan as a semiotic monument. The monument is recreated in the film through combining different levels of reality, though a fusion of material from documents, archives and scenarios. Uploaded on Youtube, the film generates constant comments on Lojban and has become a part of fan culture. In the centre of the story is the farmer Nora, who has been hit by crop failure and shadowed by apocalyptic reports. Nora experiences a transformation into an alien.

  • FAULT (23/01/2014)
    Art object: Video, artist(s)/author(s): Lina Persson
    In the film essay FAULT, the terminology of geology finds its equivalents in the terminology of dramaturgy and they merge into a new language in order to describe the social, economic, political and ecological developments of four different mountains. In the project I collaborated with scientists and institutions of the natural sciences in China, Germany, Sweden, USA. Right and left are concepts that are based on a subjective position and won’t do as a guide to subject with ever new directions and rotations. But the direction of up / down remains. No matter how I twist or turn or mirror myself up remain up and down remain down. The up/down direction does not relate to my position, but from the Earth's center. Gravity is a fundamental interaction of life on Earth, it is a rule that is the basis of all our interactions. As I travel up a mountain gravity decreases by approximately 0.000002 m / s2 per meter upwards. According to Literature Professor S.Rabkin the Fantastic occurs when a basic rules of a narrativ make a 180 degree turn, when the prevailing view is completely contradicted. The movement up the mountain points out the direction of the Sci-fi genre's domains. Beyond the atmosphere gravity ceases, up becomes down, down becomes up. The total turn following the movement through the landscape with a new geo-dramaturgical model result. The turns are also under way inside the mountain through various faults.

Faults may create a displacement between two mountains, or even divide a moun¬tain in two. The tension in the rock gorges and chasms, marks the bedrock in Västra Götaland with a syntax of splits and ruptures, and it testifies of large fault movements in the area’s history. The rearranging and flattening of the landscapes when building the suburb, sets unforeseen course of events in motion at Bergsjön. Set during the economic record years, the shift from rural to urban society overturn essential habits and ways of living. When the area’s hydrogeological flows reverses, water flows change directions, dry areas get flooded and vice versa. The architecture indebted to the emerging fantastical literature of technological imagination rises in an unreliable extension of the landmass. It projects itself above the surrounding into the future, extracting values belonging to coming inhabitants. The Mid-Atlantic ridge educes severe tensions between the conti¬nental plates, conveying us the coming movements. As these divergent boundaries are forcing apart the enormous mountain ranges with 2-4 cm per year, the tensions are concentrated in weak zones with earthquakes as a result. The tremors are minor, but sometimes they intervene, for example when the glasses clinked in the cabinet of the preserved suburban apartment from the 60’s. Located at the highest point of this turbulent bedrock, drained of resources, in the presence of time travelling colonizers, It allows for new and larger tensions in the bedrock increasing the risk of major faults, and tremors. In the scuffle of the aftershock the ground rules are forced to make a reversal with the truly fantastic as a result. Hovering above like the dot over the i.

  • Techno-Fantasy and Sci-Fi Images (08/02/2011)
    Event: Seminar, artist(s)/author(s): Lars Kristensen, Lina Persson
    KURS: Techno-Fantasy and Sci-Fi Images / Past, Present, Future 7,5 högskolepoäng Ansvarig institution: Högskolan för fotografi Innehåll: Att tänka Science Fiction innebär att navigera de tre tidszonerna dåtid, nutid och framtid samtidigt. Med Sci-Fi förenas fantasier om teknologi och tid och är därför en intressant utgångspunkt för att tala om den fotografiska bildens teknologiska och historiska förutsättningar. Sci-Fi och teknologiska fantasier speglar hur vårt samhälle, ekonomi och kultur konstrueras. I kursen kommer vi att analysera den världsbild som presenteras i olika Sci-Fi berättelser genom att granska olika ideologiska systems tänkande av framtiden. Genom filmvisningar, seminarier, workshops och handledningar studerar vi hur genren har mobiliserat politiska och sociala rörelser i en projicerad bild av framtiden. Vi kommer även att diskutera bilders förhållande till tid i mer generella termer, t.ex. ögonblicket for en bilds tillblivelse, en bilds roll i olika tidsskeenden, och en bilds fördröjning aspekt i fallet med rörliga bilder. Med utgångspunkt i studenternas egna arbeten diskuterar vi de hur de tidsbundna och teknologiska aspekterna kan förskjuta eller förstärka bildens innehåll och mening. Vår avsikt är att använda sf genren som en plattform för ett aktivt deltagande i diskussionen och utformandet av framtiden. Mål: Efter avslutad kurs förväntas studenten kunna: • Beskriva och identifiera olika framtidsformer inom Science Fiction genren • Kunna forhålla sig till sina arbeten utifrån de temporala aspekter dåtid, nutid och framtid. • Redogöra för olika sätt att kritiskt undersöka olika framtidsbilder; samt deltaga i diskussion om möjligheten att omformulera och infiltrera dessa bilder. • Studenterna ges tillgång till filmbilder från SFI’s arkiv och möjlighet till handledning i appropriering av och skapandet av en egen kontext för bilderna.
