Mind Mapping

 

I have been creating a mind map with ideas for the work I want to create for my exhibition in Munich next year. I have decided to go with things relating to Syria- because the experience I had there was enriching and the textiles gorgeous. I also loved the layers of history, the myths, the legends, the architecture ( and I left a french book on Damascus at my aunts... i need it). I also want the map to be part of the catalogue I hope to create to go with the exhibition. Now I shall have to mosey on and dye some fabric- I especially liked some fabric I encountered in the Damascus msuem which dated form Roman times- it was indigo and red with ecru resists of some sort - though the fabric did appear to be painted-- I would love to have photographed it.

Di, this is an amazing piece of work, would you mind if i copy the mind map picture to use in my class to show my pupils in school. I teach mindmapping all the time and yours is a great example. I would love to be able to show it as an example? hope this is not too much of an imposition.

I second (third, fourth, fifth) everyone else: that is the coolest, most interesting mind map I've seen. With a mind map like that I actually might be tempted to come back and read it ;-)
