Head in the house

How much are we shaped by the places we live?

Becoming your place

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt

There is a connection between the places we live and how we think and understand reality. In architecture this knowledge is both new and old… The new is that we realize it is old knowledge. And the blocks, walls, fences and houses we build today not always do anything good for us

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.
