The way we perceive the world is quite complex. At first we are focusing on a single point of interest, urban square for example. The scene presents far more sensory information than human brain is capable of sorting through. About four times every second, the brain stops taking snapshots of individual points of focus and collects background information from the environment influenced by memories. Without us knowing it the brain uses all of this to stitch together a narrative of the complete experience.
Psychogeography is ideal way to contemplate value of “social gathering” in this challenging time when we all perform “physical distancing”.
