A mind map is two-dimensional representation organizing a collection of data. These data are associated in a “rhyzomatic” spatial arrangement. Mind mapping has become very popular in the last 10 years, due to broad use of keywords and non-linearity subsequent to the emerging of the Internet. But mapping ideas has always been a concern in the visual arts and is not new.
Our session together will be an exploration of mind mapping through various examples in visual arts and the realization of two mind maps:
– one as a notation exercise to help in learning and/or remembering something new (emphasis on information gathering).
– one as a way to creatively map out an theoretical/practical understanding of a subject (emphasis on graphic and visual form).

Intro/Examples : 30mn
Map #1 : 45mn
Map #2 : 45mn
Presentation of realizations : 30mn
