Travel opens the mind and body to consideration of places and spaces - large, open spaces; tight, contained spaces; pleasing spaces - interior spaces with high ceilings and light filled rooms; landscape spaces with white sandy beaches, green hilltops and distant mountains. We all have skills to know what it feels like to be contained in a space, or to be outside a space - to be cramped or free, liberated by a spatial aesthetic or restricted by it. Even in a pandemic, even in a lock down, we can reach into our spatial sensibilities - our understanding and experience of sense of place and we can use this 'knowing' to guide and heal us. We can pick up a pencil and draw our way out of any box; we can use our imagination to travel and create new worlds.
These and similar topics and are discussed in my new book Travel, Death & Spatial Design
I am available for public or online speaking engagements.
