My First Mind Map

Last week I had published a post about mind mapping. This one is an extension of that, wherein I have delved into the intriguing world of mind maps and attempted to organize the whirlwind of ideas storming my brain into something meaningful.

The mind map displayed in this post is a precursor to my next painting which is part of my long pending Navrasa Series covering the 9 basic human emotions (refer to previous posts to view the series). The emotion I will be depicting next is called “Adbhuta Rasa” which in simpler terms means “wonder” and “amazement.” This one has been a huge challenge for me as it’s not easy depicting an emotion as profound as wonder. It is something that we feel and express on a daily basis and it knows no bounds. Anything and everything can become a cause of wonder for the human mind. So the question I asked myself while working this one out was what is the greatest wonder for the human race?

Without going too much into detail about the concept behind this artwork, here’s a draft of my thoughts and ideas that I have plotted graphically using an online mind mapping app called Ayoa (https://app.ayoa.com/).  So let my mind map do the talking!

  1. I had used mind mapping for teaching but I would never have connected it to art.
    This has given a completely fresh idea to self brain storming and mind mapping to co relate your thoughts and put it down in the form of art.
    Since I am not an artist , It is difficult for me to understand this concept, but it also Makes one realise that art is not just about picking up a canvas, an easel, colours and brushes and start dabbling away to create a good piece of art.
