This mind map – or cluster – explores the theme Waiting. It ended up being quite large, about a metre wide. The person who asked, ‘does your brain really work like that?’ looked quite horrified but I suppose if you have a linear or logical approach to thinking, the prospect of letting your mind free associate and make subconscious connections would be quite scary. I started off drawing small clusters in a notebook but now they’ve developed to a point where they’ve evolved into artworks – text pieces that exist in their own right.
