The Research Archive, the Announcement Board and the Research Platform have been realised as open source designs by Marion von Osten as part of the PhD project ‘IN THE MAKING’. After the disputation the infrastructural elements have been donated to the IAC. Easy to build and to be handled, the elements make diverse research projects publicly accessible: by doctoral students of Lund University as well as by researchers and artists in residence at IAC – in process and in their final form.
Research Archive (corridor)
Final doctoral thesis and donated research materials will be collected and stored by IAC in the newly installed research archive. The archive and integrated workstation provide in the future access for internal and external researchers to the multitude of research projects and fields of the arts. The self-build storage design takes up DIY culture of self-build furniture of the 1960s.
Announcement Board (corridor)
The easy to build wall element installed in front of the IAC offices, announces research projects in process by doctoral students from music, performing and visual arts as well as short-term projects by research fellows and artists in residence working at IAC temporarily.
Research Platform (café)
Additionally, a researcher’s platform is installed at the IAC café in one of its former dead corners. The Research Platform creates a site with multifunctional display furniture to share and exchange research findings and materials between doctoral students, fellows and the public. It can be used for meetings, discussions, screenings and presentations of documents, films, proposals, drafts, performances as well as extra-curricular activities. Doctoral students, residents and artists working at the Inter Arts Center are welcome to use and program the platform and its multifunctional displays.
