Questions, various pens and paper

A map of Manhattan composed of hand-drawn maps by various New York pedestrians whom the artist asked for directions.
Pretending to be a tourist by wearing a souvenir cap and carrying a shopping bag of Century 21, a major tourist shopping place, I ask various New York pedestrians to draw a map to direct me to another location. I connect and place these small maps based on actual geography in order to make them function as parts of a larger map.
