World, 1632

Printed in Amsterdam, this miniature map shows four continents. The sea monster appears in the decorative corner along with by a cornucopia, a bird of paradise, a salamander, and two scenes from the Garden of Eden and the Last Judgement.  Today, the world is scary because of what we know. In the Medieval and Renaissance periods, the world was scary because of what we did not know. Sea monsters were part of that great unknown, and map and atlas makers embraced them.

A huge variety of marine monsters adorn the maps of the 13th and 14th centuries. There are monsters spouting water, monsters with huge tusks, monsters as big as islands, monsters that are hybrids of multiple creatures (both mythical and factual), and also mermaids, sirens and other humanoid creatures swimming around the oceans.  Maps from this era show how our knowledge of geography was growing but also show our lack of knowledge about large marine animals. Let’s assume mariners did indeed see something monstrous in the surf and brought their accounts back to dry land. Whales were plentiful at this time. Blue whales are huge – 30 metres long and weighing 150-plus tonnes. It’s easy to understand how a close encounter with a breaching whale becomes a close encounter with a sea monster.

Designing for Wellness

Acclaimed artist, Susie Frazier, has spent the last 20 years designing calm-inducing art and accents for hospitals, hotels, corporations, and homes. Having lived with undiagnosed anxiety and ADHD since childhood, she developed her own methodology, rooted in biophilia, for enhancing spaces in ways that ease the overstimulated brain. Today, current research in wellness architecture has caught up with what Susie has innately known – that decorative decisions made in our built environments have a direct impact on our minds.

With over 41 million people in the United States living with these same conditions, Frazier openly shares how she manages her condition through various decisions she makes in the built environment. Her self-taught principles, now backed by science, have found their way into every aspect of her business from soothing art compositions, to soulful and streamlined furniture, to enriching colors, textures, and sounds in the rooms that she styles.  As architects and planners are sprinting to learn about the new WELL Building Standard for developing healthier public places, Susie is offering a glimpse into what’s coming in the next generation of interior design. In a clear and simple format, Designing For Wellness delivers a collection of mindful tips that anyone can implement at home in order to nurture their own emotional well-being.
