Immersive #17: Mind Map

Creator’s Note: We use mind maps to draw out hierarchical relations, clarifying relations developed within the networks of the mind. These help us draw connections between related and unrelated topics to better visualize how everything comes together in the larger picture. In our own lives, we create hierarchies in who and what we connect the most with, which ultimately affects how we shape our identities. As a result, through this week’s graphic, we explore this web of relationships and analyze the sources where we base our identity upon. Hope you all enjoy.
