Ambiguous Artefacts: Solar Collectors in Swedish Contexts. On Processes of Cultural Modification
Dalarna University, School of Technology and Business Studies, Environmental Engineering.
2000 (English)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This is a book about solar collectors and the place of these artefacts in a political energy debate that has aroused strong feelings in Sweden during the last twenty-five years. It is a book about the hopes for a less polluted earth, which solar collectors have come to symbolise, and a book about the ways in which problems in utilising solar energy are culturally perceived. One main aims of this study has been to find out more about the conflicting perceptions of solar collectors as 'saviours of the world' and simultaneously as uninteresting or less credible artefacts that 'may come in the future'. Another main purpose of the study has been to describe and explain those cultural processes of modification that are taking place around solar collectors in active attempts to integrate these into established cultural structures.
