About this event

Mindscape is an interactive method and graphic mapping tool that offers, through its unique design, an exploration into the construction of our thoughts. When we stand on top of a mountain, the landscape's expanse is spread out before us: hills, valleys, rivers, and lakes. Similarly, a Mindscape is a snapshot of our inner-world, providing a conceptual map in order to see into our thinking process.

As a workshop, what Mindscape offers is threefold. The theory and philosophy of the project are first introduced in a PowerPoint presentation and online platform (mindscape.world). Next, the technique of Mindscape is brought to life through a hands-on interactive and embodied group process developed out of drama therapy practices. After participants leave the workshop, the Mindscape created and played out during the workshop will be digitally rendered back into an online format to serve as an archived stand-alone art piece that can be accessible for participants to visit and engage with after their workshop is completed.
