What is the first thing you think of when you see a paper with a wall in front of you? How do you feel about that?
A wall – that was the theme of this session. And the results are as diverse as there are people!
A wall is often seen as a blockade, as a border. “I can’t go on, I can’t go any further.” A sense of panic. Being limited in options.
This is reflected in the workpiece that is then made and in which (part of) the wall must be incorporated.
The section of wall has been made smaller, low – so you can see over it, and 3D – so you can walk around it.
The wall that stops you, feeling of stress and panic – where can I go, what should I do now?
He chooses to make a hole in the wall.
“The wall won’t stop me anymore.” The cross of Christ is drawn on the next piece of paper so that it can be seen through the hole. “With Christ I will get through it.”
The wall is broken, and he writes in red letters: “I am not alone”
And so, the wall that symbolized a blockade is broken open and becomes a place to remind oneself of important things. He uses the wall to write down important things.
A wall is not just a blockade. It can also be protection and even give coziness. This lady made a collage with the white wall in the background: “The white wall is my blank canvas in my house. I can hang paintings on it, add plants and make my cozy place in the house. I love a white wall, because I can go in all directions with it!”
In this way, clients listen to each other’s story and gain new insights, their field of vision is broadened, and they take a break from the stress of everyday life. They take something important for themselves from the assignment and think about it for a few more days. And after today, walls will be viewed differently!
