Transcript

  • 1. Mind-Mapping Visual brain storming for creative clarity
  • 2. What the heck is mind-mapping?  Mind-mapping is a technique based upon the principle that free flowing radial thinking falls in line with the way our brains naturally follow thought and make connections  “A mind map is a diagram used to visually outline information. A mind map is often created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added. Major categories radiate from a central node, and lesser categories are sub-branches of larger branches.[1] Categories can represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items related to a central key word or idea.” 1 1.

  • 3. The next slide shows an example of a mind-map I made for one of my creative projects- the Dioramapod series.
  • 4. Traditional Outline vs. Mind-map Outline Mindmap-detail  Dioramampod  Outside  Ceramic  Pods  paperclay  Eggs  paperclay  Boxes  paperclay  Other Materials
  • 5. Ways mind-mapping may allow for more creative brainstorming Traditional Outline Mind Map Linear Non-linear/ radial Text Contains text and images Difficult to make connections between separate headings and topics Allows for connections between multiple topics and headings
  • 6. So what are the rules for mindmapping?
  • 7. There are no rules! (but here are some suggestions)  Start with a central theme, this can be as general as Senior Project or as detailed as an ending for my film  Now, without pausing too long, write down several finer categories radially branching from your center:Film, Performance, Game or surprising, happy, tragic  Continue refining by radiating outwards as ideas come to you. Don’t edit. Some of the spurs or branches may continue for several “generations” while others might remain branchless  Doodling; you’re doodling ideas using text and imagery while not thinking about it too hard  Color can be fun; Play with letting the imagery become the main force behind your decisions

  • 14. Homework due 02/06  Create three mind maps that relate to your senior project  The maps can be broad and general or fine and detailed or both  Create the maps by hand-paper, pens, markers, pencils, paint  Scan or digitally photograph your maps and upload to your class Wiki by 2pm 02/06. Please capture a high quality image so we can see it well. The down-shooters in SCB 204 should work well for this.
