Lina Persson is an artist and rearcher based in Stockholm. With a special interest in how science and mythology meet in the science fiction genre, she investigates the struggle over the interpretation of the future, she traces geological transformations through human storytelling and connect technological ideology with the shaping of the planet.
She is currently working with her research project Climate-Just Worldings which is financed by Vetenskapsrådet and located at the Film and Media department, Uniarts. The project explores questions like; What would it mean to my artistic practice if there was a built-in limitation for me to use more resources than my share? What would a world look like, where future generations could access and confront the present with its overdraw of resources? Through different forms of “worldbuilding” like the film industry’s “storyworlds” and the “worldings” of material feminist theory these questions will be investigated.
