When I started to go through newspapers looking for articles about the so called dangerous areas I Goteborg I notices that the ordinary people living in the neighborhoods aren’t mention anywhere. I began to think about how these people are affected by both crime and police efforts. How do there life look like? Are they perceived in a special way of the rest of the society?



To get an ide of the situation I collected objects that I associated whit the police helmet and the article.


Through “Loose making”, I created an object that tells a story of how three forces affects each other, the innocent, the criminal and the police. The white “pills” symbolize the ordinary people living in the neighborhoods and the metal string represent the criminality that are infecting the life’s of people living in the area. When the police intervene its not just the criminales that are affected but also the people living in the area.
