32 “The map of a nomadic topos is unlike any other map; it is at once map and territory. It is onrepresentational, which is to say, it does not represent but makes connections and projects new lines of flight. Each concept in the map is also a living circuit of becoming, rather than a dead icon. It is a becoming-map — therefore, one cannot read this map with the idea of a referent; one can only experiment with it, insert oneself into the making of it even as one constructs it. (Roy, 2003, p.80, cited in Steeves, 2012).
