Situating Serenity

Situating Serenity is a blog that Ezana Mussie and I created in April of 2017 as an exploration on serenity in the city. By searching within philosophy, urban studies, and the streets of Malm√∂ for inner peace, we managed to get some steps closer to a possible answer. Parts of the research were: literature analysis, an interview with the Korean artist behind the Space- Out Competition WoopsYang, explorations of methodology, recording soundscapes, and more. Situating Serenity was the beginning of an interest in tranquility in urban space that later led to the project Caroli Park and my Master’s thesis Sensing Tranquility.
