SYMPOSIUM NEW CARTOGRAPHIES - 5, 6 & 7th OF JUNE, 2013

The NEW CARTOGRAPHIES Symposium will last three days, and will have the participation of Brazilian and international guests comming from different areas of knowledge, to discuss themes related to mapping as a critical transformative action. In broad terms, the Symposium aims at promoting critical thinking on the contemporary city, taking Rio de Janeiro as a case study and using mapping as a transdisciplinary and creative instrument of recognition, reflection and action over the urban space, as the medium. Guest speakers with notable experience in design and information technology were invited to debate the different dimensions of mapping in the fields of urbanism, architecture, sociology and visual arts. Specifically, the symposium is being devised as the critical portion of the project. An open discussion among guest speakers and participants shall inaugurate a wider conversation about the transformations of cities, in special, Rio de Janeiro.

Themes

The symposium was organized into three broad themes so that each participant - with its specific approaches - can contribute to a plural debate, but with common goals. These themes reflect three major fields of contemporary practices and debate about the agency of mapping. The theme "Mapping & Perception" will count with academics and professionals who deal with multiple points of view about the individual experience in the urban space, using maps as interfaces and producing new types of visualization. The theme "Mapping & Transformation" will promote a debate among academics and professionals who use mapping as a design tool, generating visualizations for the understanding and transformation of realities. The theme "Mapping & Politics" will deal with the political aspects of mapping, debating cartography’s supposed neutrality and proposing other ways of thinking about territories visually so that new forms of social and...

EXPECTED PRODUCTS

In addition to the results to be exhibited during the symposium, the legacy left by the project is aimed at a wider horizon. The emphasis being placed on interdisciplinarity aims to lay the groundwork for developing a network of production debate and participatory monitoring and mapping in Rio de Janeiro, as well as in other cities. Seeing the design of a collaborative network as a result of equal importance to the time of the symposium, it is understood...

icosahedron

This map, presented for the first time in 1946, projects the world as an almost regular icosahedron. This global representation allows the world surface to be planned - or opened - in various ways, creating different possibilities for the planet’s comprehension. Thus, the projection retains great fidelity throughout the areas minimizing distortions in continental representation.
