Instincts about death, life, knowledge of sexual behavior, and spirituality stem from a shared collective subconscious passed down from our ancestors (C.G. Jung). Mankind has since turned to natural aspects – animals, landscapes, the weather – to find the cause of human existence (Jones, 2020).
10 years of experience in the field of creative therapy provides an opportunity to come into contact with a wide variety of personalities, lives, institutions and systems, and creativity. What does it mean to be human?
Art is not just an object in a museum, but also an experience of the act of creation and meeting it (Sloan, 2013).
When art is a channel of communication, it can be a stimulus, an impetus for the viewer to create new ideas and connections.
