Vessninn limits series on fawn paper (Legion Stonehenge), Newburgh, NY, 2022

Some psychologists believe that walking through a door and entering another room can be source of “mental blockage”.
In our brain, walking through open doors can reset memory to make room for a new episode to emerge. 
It often happens that we have absolutely no idea what we are doing before.
They call this phenomenon the doorway effect.
Based on the various performances of my own memory, I imagined the reasons for the door opener effects in abstract way.
