Reaching out between screens

Can we learn to connect better in digital ways

Using technology to build relationships

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt

We are connecting to each other more than ever, and at the same time less – And it seems to have a lot to do with digital technology. We simple shift from relating less offline, to more online. But does it work for us?

It is a debate that has lasted as long as we’ve had the internet… ( Around 30 years )

New generations take to the web in new ways and the old reconnect with people that they off one of several reasons can’t be around. It seems all to be good, and at the same time there is something we’re losing. Something we haven’t yet been able to clearly see

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.
