"Urban spaces are more-than-human. Many are used to view cities as
up of streets, offices, buses, houses that designed for and made by
humans, like women, men, children, rich, elderly, poor or what ever
social category you like. During this first week of your course, I will
tell you about the city and the urban space by departing from them as
more-than-human, as “living cities” consisting also of birds,
bumblebees and other urban citizens that co-habit the city..."

Order a Mystic Field
Mystic field is an eye-opener. This cocktail wishes to form a discourse about the function and state of Årsta field, by introducing it into Stockholm's restaurants and bars. Mystic Field's main ingredient, Årsta Brännvin (spirit), originates from Lady Årsta's recipe created during the 18th century. Hopefully, this drink will engage more people within Stockholm to make judgements and decisions on how to use Årsta field.
This project was done in collaboration with Anders Mellbratt and Marcus, the bartender at Grill Restaurant & Bar in November 2009. We are both hoping to carry on with the project, by designing a more developed event for the drink Mystic Field. We are still interested in highlighting the discussion around Årsta Field, which would also benefit Reimersholms, the makers of the spirit.
