Homo Colossus In Real Life approved! (application)


I handed in an application for seed money for a small interdisciplinary project to the KTH Sustainability Office's call "Environment and sustainability without boundaries" about half a year ago - but to no avail. These are truly small projects - maximum 100.000 SEK, we asked for 80.000 - and I got the decision just a month after the May deadline. Only three projects were funded and my project wasn't one of them.

The reject letter did however mention that a new assessment might be made during the autumn and I just found out that the KTH Sustainability Office had some money left over and that they are willing to fund my application! This very much seems like a case of spending all the money in the budget before the end of the year - it didn't matter that the project would be delayed but it was important that the money was payed out before the end of the year (for accounting purposes). I'm not picky though as I would really like to do this project!

I wrote about the most relevant facts of the project back in May but there have been a few important changes in the project since then:

- Due to the late decision, the project has been delayed for half a year and will now run between January-December 2019.
- KTH researcher Jonas Åkerman was supposed to be part of the project but he has now declined due to lack to time (he is busy being the co-director of the research programme "Mistra SAMS Sustainable Accessibility and Mobility Services"
- We have instead recruited Åsa Andersson Broms to be the fourth person who will work in the project. Åsa is an artist and she's also a teacher and the Royal Academy of Art.

The idea is to meet regularly during 2019 and "produce a report/prospectus (decision support), including a realistic budget, sketches/suggestions for placement and design of Homo Colossus on the KTH Campus etc.". The idea is that our project will result in a proposal for building a (temporary) huge statue on the KTH campus that is a visualisation of the average Swede's "energy footprint".

I will personally do the major part of the work in the project but that the other three members of the project (Mario Romero, Per Hasselberg and Åsa Andersson Broms) will function as a reference group/steering committee for the project (e.g. for me). We will meet regularly (once per month?) during 2019 and I will work with small fact-finding missions in-between these meetings.

This project will give me the chance to work practically with ideas (about "Homo Colossus") that I incorporated into my education three years ago.

  1. 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. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
