Blindspot 2.0

Experts in perception talks about our blindspot, the point in our vision where we can’t see. Maybe we are developing a blindspot 2.0 for everything not on a screen?

Going blind for things not digital

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt

It doesn’t change overnight, but little by little we loose our sight, to things that mattered. Our perception and understanding naturally change and adapt to the reality we spend our time in

And do we spend then online, that is what we adapt to and what our brains will wire to navigate in… It seems the rest will slowly fade

About Museum of Psychology – Visualizing psychology
We understand reality at least through a combination of impressions, metaphors, images, stories and experiences. But also through our dreams, understandings, feelings, music, walk of life, directions, expectations, relations… and much more.

Much of this have in common that we can somehow sketch up maps and drawings of these places, trails and situations. Here on Museum of Psychology I (Frits Ahlefeldt) am drawing up a slowly growing map of our many landscapes of understanding.
