The British film director and actor, SirCharles Spencer Chaplin (1889 – 1977) famous as a skinny tramp with a cane, bowler hat and moustache starred infilms such as The Gold Rush (1925) and Modern Times (1936).The creative genius of Charlie Chaplin has similarities to the field of visual thinking. The Charlie Chaplin Guide to VisualThinking mind map highlights six areas through which Charlie Chaplin expressed his famous character of the tramp.SimplicityThe tramp makes an instant visual impression through simple elements, easily identifiable. Using three maintrademarks; the bowler hat, cane and moustache coupled with silent mime the character is immediately recognisable.We can relate to him instantly.FunThe format is basic and original; the tramp taps our emotions from laughter and smiles, through to fear and danger.Overall, the character portrays innocence and fun.ExpressionThe tramp’s character is expressed through emotions and feelings; a mix of intrigue and surprise keeps us interestedand wanting to know the outcome.StoryThe tramp takes us through mini hooks; small sagas we can identify and relate to either through personal experience orrecognition and appreciation. Drawn in and involved we follow the ups and downs, the commotion and eventualoutcome, both moment to moment and longer term.HopeCharlie Chaplin plays on our dreams, fantasy, imagination and potential. He asks questions, provides answers andsometimes leaves us dangling in the midst of the unknown.Possibility
