– ELIN, WHO?

As a designer, I am exploring how aesthetics choreograph the body by criss-crossing in three different fields; design, fashion and costume, as one feeds the other and to have fun! In my projects I produce material to pose questions and engage people to reflect upon complex matters such as social, economic and environmental relations through embodied experiences. I am combining my interests working on self-initiated projects, collaborations and consulting assignments – currently with Förnyelselabbet and Innovationsguiden.

Design

A practice where I use design methodological approaches, navigating in complex situations and involving several users and actors, to produce emotional engagement through embodied experiences. With design I explore methods of research, problem setting and design proposals.

Fashion

The fashion system, adorning bodies to showcase the self in the social, is particularly interesting to dissect with its emotional layers interconnected with social, economic and environmental systems. With the artistic approach that fashion embrace, I use fashion to explore themes from social positioning and business models to material and crafting techniques.

Costume

The practice is exploring and playing with aesthetic associations and norms to create storytelling in film, theatre, performance or other artform. From a manuscript or artistic idea the projects (and its characters) within this category are transformed into the physical by character analysis and dialog with other departments.
