The DamasQ drawings are a series of drawings produced during the Damascus transfer project in Syria in 2002 guided by the question: How is orientation functioning in another cultural system? Which categories can be used to describe place?
The drawn-out results of investigation were later compiled, condensed and released as the psycho geographic cityguide: Mykromap 01-11/02/03. which is one sheet of the extensive map project "Meta.Atlas". The map and the DamasQ drawings became later the source of inspiration and image pool for all the "Mapping the Difference".
