During my exchange studies at Tama Art University in Tokyo, Japan, I did a research project on children's cultural experiences in Japan, focusing on costumes and clothing design. As a result, I designed a bag inspired by the Japanese symbolism, form and mindset. 渋 い (shibui) means subtle, organized and pure while 派 手 (hade) means the colorful, wild and loud language of the Japanese style. In order to reach an equilibrium one strives for 塩 梅 (anbai). The bag I designed and produced is based on this mindset. The bag is designed, produced and photographed by me.

Role play is an essential part of human development and most of our social and identity-building skills are defined in childhood, through role-play. The purpose of this project was to interpret the role play and imaginary play part of Alfons Åbergs everyday life theory into a wearable artefact of play that through role-play and social interaction enhances social development and empathy, stimulates imagination and encourages friendship.
Stick with me is a collection of apparel from which children can build their own crazy creatures where both role-play and social interaction can be achieved. It consists of vests, hats, shoes and a lot of attachable objects like horns, eyes and tentacles.There is also a big body that can either be attached to yourself or used as a separate creature.All objects and pieces are attached to each other with velcro and can easily be ripped of and moved.

This project has its origins in my personal experience growing up as a “Third Culture Kid”. Third Culture Kids (TCK) are children raised in one or several different cultures than their parents for a significant part of their development years. The act of collecting stories and maintaining memories are crucial for a TCK’s identity.
