Normalizing the Abnormal

- Understanding my Project in Relation to Others

Posted by Mattias Axell on October 29, 2015




  • Do the Museum of Now (MoN) and get on my way back to Stockholm

Desired Outcome

  • Prepared last things for MoN.
  • Take farewell of Team 20.
  • Done MoN for as long as I could before having to leave.
  • Get on the train back to Stockholm.


  • Same as D.O. in that order.

Rules and Roles

  • Done is better than perfect.
  • Storyteller


  • 08.00-15.00


What have I Done Today?

  • Almost finished preparations completely. Did not manage to download and screen a website locally with photos at the MoN.
  • Managed to say goodbye for now to a few of Team 20. I realise that my disliking of putting myself in the center of attention hindered me to make a collective goodbye.

  • Hashtags
  • Narrative Storytelling
  • Visualizations (Website & Movie)

How do I Feel? How do I Feel about the Project Today?

  • I feel really good.

What Surprised Me?

  • That when reflecting on not wanting to put myself in the centre to say goodbye to the entire Team 20 at the same time was a decision that in the end was based on fear.

What has Changed?

  • From now on I desire to hack my own system and doing not what I might not appreciate the most, which might be egoistic but do what I believe the whole would appreciate the most, in this case informing the entire Team 20 that I am leaving.

What are the Next Action Steps?
