These two paintings in front of The Iron Door Pub can be confusing to some people – how can “no peace” be right next to “peace”? As a child of war, I can testify to the behemoth of emotions that accompany a life of peace versus a life of fear. In Upheavals of Thought, Martha Nussbaum (2001), sees emotions “as intelligent responses to the perception of value” (p.1). She states: “If emotions involve judgements about the salience for our well-being of uncontrolled external objects……….we will need to be able to imagine those attachments, their delight and their terror, their intense and even obsessive focusing on their object, if we are ever to talk well about love, or fear, or anger” (p.2). The question for designers is to examine the role of landscapes in the creation of fear and hope.
