Intuition is at the basis of all my work, however carefully planned and organised it might appear. Having started to look into Margaret Lowenfeld’s research, has confirmed how we can learn from great work done sometime ago. It’s incredible to see the impact this work has had in its days after the second world war, and how it has been more recently confirmed (The Lowenfeld mosaic test in the study of cultural differences, by Terese Woodcock, 1986 published in Projective Psuchology, Vol 31, N°1 ) that this approach can be important in terms of intercultural dialogue. When making room for tacit and non textual communication this allows much more to arise in the encounter.
