Time is one of the great mysteries of our reality, we all have the exact same amount of it every day. But still, we sell and buy it, give it to each other, or take our time. Even waste each other’s time, steal time, beg for time… or chase time…

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.
