In January I hosted a salon on “Enjoying the Unknown” and one questions that was quite difficult to answer was: How can we map the Unknown? We can map and track back the things that we know and that already took place, but how can we map what has not happened yet?
By asking this question, I wanted to invite everyone who joined the salon to imagine how could their life unfold as of now and to play with the flow of maps – streets, canals, rivers, cities, or to visualise the unknown in drawings, paintings, splashes of colour on a piece of paper. By mapping our choices or some possible ways our lives can unfold we could at least have a “taste” of the unknown.
Drawing maps was most of the time a preferred solution of mine in dealing with uncharted territory. However, that does not mean that the map will be 100% accurate, but at least it can serve as a guide or as a possible journey ahead. After all, nothing will truly make sense until we look backwards to start remembering forward.
