Abstract

The text presents cartography as methodological exercise and path writing, which operationalize infographic concepts and techniques in the production of narrative. It is about the environmental condition of the Tietê River, based on data from the SOS Mata Atlântica Foundation’s “Observando o Tietê” [Observing the Tietê River] project, which depends on the direct participation of the local community in the collection and monitoring processes. The description of the infograph articulates choices, organizes ideas, and materializes data, designing behaviors. It proposes the river as protagonist and lived place, understanding that visual representations mediate man and his social and political phenomena. Finally, we are interested in articulating the sense of smell as a differential operator of the proposed narrative, seeking to evoke a perceptual experience - an encounter with/between objects and spaces in the production of tacit knowledge. And, the use of Mário de Andrade’s poem is justified, as a sensitive dialogue between memory and time-space lived.
