About Jonathan Westin

I am an archaeologist and historian at the Department of Conservation at the University of Gothenburg. In my research I study how we form our perception of culture through representations, and how these representations become part of our cultural heritage. By focusing on the communicative aspects of culture management, I approach the creation of visual representations as a negotiation process between new research and established images.

In my current research i follow the digitisation process of the Ivar Arosenius Archive. To digitise is to disassociate a material from its physicality, an ocularcentric act where multisensory qualities are translated into a purely visual form without depth. However, this disassociation allows for a mobility that makes the material reach beyond artificial contexts such as collections and archives and provoke new associations. This project, Arosenius' Metamorfoz, aims to investigate how material from the newly digitised archive of artist Ivar Arosenius can be activated as a narrative device to trace the relation between artist and subject. While the digital archive is without material depth, it allows us to stage a meeting where the object of the artist’s gaze is given voice, and the distance between them is renegotiated. As such, the art and archive of Arosenius are being repositioned as equal residues of a meeting, their association a hybrid that has the potential to give body to tensions and affect to relations.

I have published my research in the International Journal of Heritage Studies, Convergence Magazine and Visual Anthropology Review.
