Abstract [en]

This study analyzes The Influence Machine by Tony Oursler, Delay by Santiago Mostyn and An Imagined City by Jonas Dahlberg as public site-specific temporary artworks in Sweden. In particular, the intersection of the artworks and the site is analyzed, to see how emotions can be written about in an analysis. The questions are: How can these artworks be described? How can sites be described? What is the relationship between the sites and the artworks? How can emotions that exist in the space between the artworks and the sites be written about in an analys? My methodological framework is based on multimodal analysis of Carey Jewitt and Gunter Kress research. In the model, various media such as sound, light, installation, image, text and site have given individual space, to later be compared to each other and to clarify similarities, differences and relationships between each other. The model in the survey is shaped after each selected object, a so-called method reflectivity, to adapt the purpose of the survey. The model incorporates concepts derived from previous research on emotions and affect. Rosalyn Deutsch's work uses the concepts of harmonise and disruptive (sv. assimilativ, söndrande), Annika Wik's concepts of convergence, participant culture and world-making (sv. konvergens, deltagarkultur, världskapande) and Christian Norberg-Schulz's concepts of space and character (sv. rum, karaktär). In the survey, to show the relation between work and place, I coined the concept of affective relationship (sv. affektiv relation), which is close to Sara Ahmed's description of Happy Objects. This study shows that it is possible to rewrite emotions in a model that is adapted to concepts related to emotions and affect. The study further suggests that the relation between work and site can be described with the concept of affective relation, which can be elucidated by looking at the character of work and character of space. The model can be used for further research and analysis of work and place which contributes to a broader view within the discipline of art science around analytical models to open up and write about emotions.
