Keeping distance together

Slowly communities are changing all over the world. Will we find new ways to get back together, or is loneliness an ever growing trend?

Before the Covid-19 there was said to be a loneliness pandemic in full swing. People would isolate themselves and concert places, sports events, cinemas and theatres complained so few would come to see the shows – Then the pandemic hits and the isolation moved to a whole new scale

But are we more happy with technology, than together?

The designers and programmers of the apps and robots that are learning to know us better and better say that technology can actually be designed to make us happy…. more happy than ever

But is that what we want – happy and alone?

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.
