The Pig (English)
Abstract [en]

”The Pig” is in one part the process of developing an architecture, layer by layer. It is also a project trying to define what lies behind this process. 

   Each drawing is generated on top of the previous one; each one becoming a frame in a timelapse. Like the plates of Eadweard Muybridge each frame is not just a two-dimensional projection of, for instance, a pig, but one in a series of images revealing the movements of this pig - the movements of a real, more complex existance. 

   Looking at this process of drawing, what can we read from it? If these drawings are only stills of a trotting pig, what is the real pig? What is the idea that these drawings and this model are projections of. 

   In this project an ideology, a realism, is defined and proposed as the one thing holding all of this process-material together.

Abstract [sv]

Projektet ”Grisen” (The Pig) är delvis en process redovisande utvecklingen av ett arkitektonisk form-material. Delvis är projektet också ett försök att förstå vad som ligger bakom det producerade materialet.

    Lager för lager byggs projektet upp, med varje ritning utförd ovanpå en tidigare. Alla ritningar hänger ihop och redovisar tillsammans en rörelse. I likhet med Eadweard Muybridges fotografiska serier, över till exempel en traskande gris, är varje ritning en tvådimensionell projektion av en mer komplicerad existens - av den riktiga grisen. Tillsammans talar projektionerna om den här existensen i fler dimensioner än det enskilda fotografiet kan redovisa. 

   Så, betraktandes det här materialet som en process, vad hittar vi bortom de enskilda ritningarna?  Om de är som bilderna av den traskande grisen, vad är då den riktiga grisen? Hur ser den blotta idé ut som de här ritningarna projicerar en förenklad bild av?

   I projektet Grisen presenteras och föreslås en ideologi, en realism, ligga dold bakom det ritade formspråket. Realismen som någonting sammanbindande och förklarande.
