Who will be most interested in the Bubbles and Tubes project?

This project, Bubbles and Tubes, was inspired by Gregory Bateson. The title of his book, Steps to an Ecology of Mind - alone, suggested environmental systems thinking as a metaphor for a more effective way of observing the contents of mind.

The visual representation of such a mental ecology was suggested by another seminal book from the same era: I'm Okay - You're OK by Thomas A. Harris, which presented the idea of transactional analysis. It employed 2D mind bubbles to help explain how mental patterns are affected and formed in relationship to other minds and events.

Media analysis and literacy - Media Ecology - is an extension of mental analysis since mass media is the way we share the contents of our minds. Today, that shared mental environment is fraught with pathology that deserves to be examined and discussed.
