Abstract: Taking Winnicott’s concept of transitional space as a starting point, I extend it to the idea of a transitional time (the temporal interval between two events) and to that of a bridge space/time – a bridge being a structure spanning an obstacle for the purpose of providing passage over it. In the process, I make reference to a variety of psychological and cultural phenomena that we experience in our daily lives, and more specifically in our analytic work. These include the transference, rites of passage, various kinds of silences, sexuality, borderline personality disorders, and the arts (in particular, music and cinema).
