Mohamed A. Gawad visually maps his research into the conditions that shaped a certain period of composer Dimitri Shostakovich's work, and the structural markers embedded in that period. The research map takes on a loose association approach, both resembling the non-hierarchal temporal approach the project is based upon, and embracing the architect of spiral online (re)search habits unavoidable in lockdown circumstances.
He has created a MindMap of his ongoing research into his current film project which uses archival footage. You can view his research below or click on this link to explore it full screen on the Mindomo website.
This mindmap allows you to view the various video, audio and texts which are informing his current on-going work. Use the + and - buttons at the bottome right of the image to zoom in and out of the mind map, click and drag to move around it, and click the button with the four arrows pointing inwards to reset the map.
