Further ideas: Architecture. What do you think? Natty


1. A penthouse floor of an office block. ‘The Chieftans Suite’. It will be set out in a symmetric pattern, so that a decision can be considered and made from one position, perhaps contemplating a view. Then, the alternative hypothesis or approach can be looked at from an equal but opposite point of view. By actually physically moving to an opposite environment, viewpoint, shape and surroundings, the other view can be considered. Later, a balanced, third view, a decision can be made in the neutrality of a boardroom type setting.

I will submit an example drawing of the floorplan for you to have a look at.

2. A work environment with cubby holes where people can ‘discover’ items of interest in interesting locations. For example, an abacus, and they can go on a journey discovering the significance and history of the item, relating it to their place and method of work. They can progress in this way.

3. An underground, ‘v’ shaped, glass walled, reverse skyscraper. With a circular performance space at the base. Again, I should really try to draw this.


Psychology. New Metaphor. Switch On/Switch Off Parenting

I like my lamp analogy too….maybe they could use it in psychology.  I am conscious that you can discover things. So maybe this is a ‘discovery’. You put your metaphorical hand into the beam and there is an immediate reaction from your ‘big’. A freezing where you can’t move a millimetre without provoking a response – you are within the field of vision of your controller who is acutely aware of everything you do and more importantly reacts to it in an exaggerated fashion. When you remove yourself from the beam you are left, as a child,  to fumble in the darkness. To make up your own world without the ‘tagging’ of guidance or someone to set limits or sanctions on your conduct. What should this be called? It’s a weak/failed parental mechanism. Switch on/Switch Off parenting? People are switch on…switch off but they also. alongside this, just expect things to be o.k. Maybe we have trouble with authority as adults because of this?

All the best,
