RESEARCH PROJECTS

IN THE NAME OF ♥︎
KONSTFACK, STHLM, SE
2018/19




In the name of ♥︎ is a reference to In the name of love by Sarah Ahmed, published in borderlands e-journal (2003). “How has politics become a struggle over who has the right to name themselves as acting out of love? What does it mean to stand for love by standing alongside some others and against other others?"


In this research, êkhô explores the use of the heart symbol in the context of social media, e-commerce and the rise of nationalist mindsets in Europe. Beyond its usual conventions (a symbol for love), how does the ♥︎ facilitate a design of trust to conceal privacy breach and to fuel stricter border closure politics?










FEMME: EXTINCT STEREOTYPES
KONSTFACK, STHLM, SE
2018 / 19





Femme: exctinct stereotypes is a retro-futuristic exhibition. In an utopian world, based in 2050, the project aims at showing how women were protrayed around 2020’s.



In this research, êkhô explores stereotyped representation of women – in the context of internet and pop culture. Responding to skepticism towards feminist movements, this work aims to challenge the power of today’s western society. How are images playing a big role in creating and/or reproducing inequalities?
