White Board Experiments

(apologies in advance for terrible phone-otos)

As I begin to consider mapping my personal practice, I conducted a few experiments with organizing the words and concepts that I associate with my work. I tried a mind map:

(didn't go so well.)

Further Experiments:

Between this class, building an online presence, and applying for various opportunities, I've been writing a lot about myself. The last two experiments relate these words to the various elements of my practice. I find I reuse the same words and phrasing, and I begin to lose touch with what I'm actually trying to communicate. For next week, I'm going to continue experimenting with these words and their combinations.

I'm also struck by the tangle of lines in experiment 3. Do I cast a wide net, or do I operate in the in-between spaces?
