Symbiosis (application)


I'm part of a Färgfabriken application for funds

Besides the Communication application I submitted to Formas earlier this week, I'm also part of another application, "Symbiosis", that was submitted (same call) by Anders Bergmark from the art exhibition space Färgfabriken.

If this application is approved, I will be involved in a variety of activities around the planned exhibition "Symbiosis" during the coming three years (e.g. "Symbiosis summits" and "Symbiosis talks" etc.). The Symbiosis exhibition is planned to have four themes with different evocative titles: "Hinterlands", "Planetary Enterprise", "Re/Designing Ecology" and "Becoming Human". Homo Colossus has been invited to be part of the Symbiosis exhibition and that's also the main reason why I am part of this application.

I'm however just one of many participating researchers in the application and this application is only one of several things that is emanating from me pitching our "Homo Colossus" project at Färgfabriken at the end of October last year. The other participants/researchers who are part of the application are:

  • Anna Björklund, KTH, Associate professor Environmental Strategic Analysis
  • Nina Bozic, RISE, senior researcher innovation management & the future of work
  • Andreas Gedin, Associate Professor/Docent, Valand,Göteborgs universitet.
  • Janna Holmstedt, KTH, PostHumanities Hub
  • Mattias Höjer, KTH, Professor, Environmental strategies and Futures studies
  • Katarina Larsen, KTH, forskare och lärare. Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment David Nilsson, Director KTH Water Centre
  • Daniel Pargman, KTH, Associate Professor, Media Technology and Interaction Design
  • Karl-Henrik Robèrt, BTH, Professor strategisk hållbar utveckling
  • Giles Thomson, BTH, Department of Strategic Sustainable Development
  • Elsa Vaara, RISE, UX- & designforskare PhD
  • Josefin Wangel, SLU Director CEMUS - Center for Environment and Development Studies
  • Cecilia Åsberg, KTH Guest Professor of Science and Technology Studies with focus on Gender and Environment

Note: it was Mattias Höjer (above) who connected me and Färgfabriken in the beginning of October (only four months ago!),

Here's the summary of the project:

The term "symbiosis" summarizes how powerful trends and changes such as urbanization, climate change, digitization, migration, food supply, populism and globalization are intertwined and create new conditions for the future of our planet. We are all affected by this, from individuals, companies to large organizations and nations. The challenges are often discussed individually in an alarmistic fashion, not least in mass media and on social media. This creates fragmentation and leads to concerns and uncertainty about our common future.

At the same time, world-leading research in Sweden is initiated and many new constructive ideas on how the challenges can be adressed are taking shape. But the research is often specialized and doesn’t reach out to other disciplines, to decision makers or the general public. We believe that a symbiotic perspective is a way to increase cross-border cooperation for a sustainable future. In order to create opportunities for ”symbiotic thinking” and new types of knowledge to emerge we need new forums for meetings and knowledge exchange across fields and outside the academic system's discipline structure.

The aim of the project is to create new opportunities for our transition to sustainability through a close collaboration between research, art and culture and a symbiotic approach. It is achieved through a series of communication activities that create links between areas of knowledge (Symbiosis summits) and other target groups (Symbiosis Talks). The insights that arise will also be condensed into core messages and thought-provoking illustrations for further dissemination of methods and "best practices", be condensed into a "manifesto" and finally a "toolbox" for symbiotic thinking and method work. The concept is based on Färgfabriken's know-how and 25-year experience of conceptualizing complex content in an engaging and exciting way based on broad sector-wide collaborations. Processes and results are communicated on an ongoing basis to a general public in Färgfabriken’s channels, as well as via the participating researchers' communication channels.

This means that Sweden's world-leading research reaches far outside the academic community. A powerful approach to create conditions for new insights and opportunities, to communicate the need for interdisciplinary knowledge and to popularize and use research results, contributing to reducing anxiety and promote faith in our future.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR.

  2. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him.
