The “Hands-on Famagusta” project’s counter-mapped ad-hoc technologies are about large size printed isometric drawings of the city’s fragmented territory, a transportable physical city model and board games. They are all used to encourage the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot Famagustians to go beyond their split mental maps by firstly becoming aware of a severely fragmented urban environment and secondly by having the chance to see for the first time their city territory represented as a continuum of extensive landscapes consisting of built and non-built areas. The processes of cartographic documentation as well as that of creating and using the material agents have created collectives consisting of members coming from areas across the Cypriot divide.
