xKRP – Community Experience Data Lab Kronoparken
by Research Institutes of Sweden
Project manager for establishing the national data lab xKRP. Funded by the Swedish National Innovation Agency VINNOVA, the goal is to establish a national data lab focused on developing, testing and evaluating visualization, interaction and use of data with the local community as a starting point. The method is based on facilitating case / sub projects with the consortium as resource and the community as a starting point.
My role in in xKRP has been to spearhead the funding application and compiling the project consortium – ranging from national government agencies to small data start-ups and to manage both the overall projects and individual cases within the lab. This includes dialogue with NGO:s, activists and public actors, planning and execution of data gathering and analytics workshops.
John Moose – O
by Anlesser/John Moose
In John Moose’s second release, the woods come to the listener – via virtual reality. Focus was to visualize the ecological, interpersonal and spatial perspective, combining both music, movies and digital technology.
The app was made available for download in the app store and google store. All that the listener needed was a pair of VR glasses for smartphones. The release was covered by numerous tech and music magazines, amongst other, Metal Sucks and Music Crowns.
My role in the O project was filming, VR-development, visualization and project management.

John Moose – Prerelease
by Anlesser/John Moose and Marcus Sjögren
My culture collective John Moose released an app in 2015 where you could listen to our debut album absolutely free – but only if you where in the forest. Using the GPS tracking system within Google Maps as a trigger for the in-app music player, we forced thousands of listener to put on the hiking boots and walk into the wilderness. The launch received much attention and was mentioned in , inter alia, The Rolling Stone Magazine and Time Magazine. The concept has also recived several awards and prestigious nomination, among other The Golden Wolf and the The Golden Egg.

In 2014 I worked as consultant for the Swedish Companies Registration Office to develop a regional pilot for the governments digital business application Verksamt.se. The assignment was to find a structure for the page’s information infrastructure and a plan for user experience. The mission was conducted along with the research institute Interactive Institute.
The launch was preceded by an extensive research effort. This was partly focused on scenario outcomes based on page features, partly on research on international best-practice.

Innovation System Mapping
by Attityd i Karlstad
Between 2012 – 2014, me and Attityd in Karlstad conducted several comprehensive survey of the support and innovation system for presumptive and existing entrepreneurs in Värmland. The aim of the mapping was to identify deficiencies, areas of improvement and needs within the system. The mapping and related research also became the basis for the matching of the support system’s service offering applied to the web service Verksamt Värmland.
Within these survey, a handful of large categorizations and visualizations were made of the survey results. The result was implemented partly through a workshop and partly through subsequent process support aimed at the project Värmland.

The Commuter Commuters – Gamification of Data results
by Attityd i Karlstad for the municipality of Karlstads, Värmland Traffic and the National Transport Administration
During the spring and autumn of 2015 me and my firm Attityd worked for the social transformation project Train-on-Time managed by the municipality of Karlstad, Värmland Traffic, the National Transport Administration and others. A portion of this research was compiling data-sets on how commuters relate to public transport.
To create a more accessible and user-friendly implementation of the result we developed a game that , based on the research data, gave the players the task to persuade a person, in the game called Janne , who is reluctant to take public transportation to work and would much rather use his car, to try taking the bus.
Based on a combinations of the arguments generated from the data research the game hosted a series of answer combinations that led to either Janne taking the the bus to work or, if you lost, Janne taking his car to work.
