Din Teg av Jorden - A Theory of Land and Time (English)
Abstract [sv]

Verket består av en text. Fokus är på frågeställningen om hur mycket land vi har per person och vad pengar är, samt hur land och pengar ger makt. Texten lägger fram fakta samt undersöker land och pengar ur olika synvinklar. Texten framlägger tesen att statistik kring genomsnittlig mängd land per person är en meningsfull måttstock samt att konstnärer kan göra en bättre valuta en dagens dominerande valutor i världen.

Abstract [en]

[I examensarbetet ingår utställningen "Din Teg av Jorden - A Theory of Land and Time":]

Guerilla garden grown vegetables being offered for time money, six square meters (6 m²) of tomatoes - your share of the global tomato harvest (/global area used for growing  tomatoes) and facts & visualizations of other agricultural statistics (and info about the other almost 2 000 m² used for growing your food/info about the other 1 990 m² of your share of arable land)

:Documentation from a drone of a performance where I (Nikolaj/the artist/ingeting?) measured up 21 275 m² of land – your share of land you would get if we divided the land surface of the planet in seven billion equal parts – with tape in the form of a triangle in Botkyrka a Suburb to Stockholm during the Subtopia art ferstival there.

 Squlpture (/installation) of all the different biomes (/climate types/zones)of the planet that make up your share of land, each land strip is shaped like the ones that divided the farms in the medeval open field system in most part of Europe, a very fair but ultimately inefficient system that guarantied that everyone got a slive of the best land, the second best land and so on. The land strips form a 1:200 scale form of 2/3 of Kastelholmen a island just next to the school for size comparsion.
