Territories Complexity was presented at Bain::Connective, Plankton Bar 30, as a live-cinema performance. Guido Carlo Argan quotes Sausurre on his book “Art History as the History of Cities”: there are no cities but “urban situations”. Therefore, São Paulo consists of a complex of urban situations resulting articulated networks linking multi-scenic urban territories.
The region was mapped out with a GPS device and a video camera, not casting aside the interferences of these capture systems and from the environment.
The approaching processes to these new cartographers are achieved through the new electronic devices, using as key components the mapping, the collect and analysis of this information. It is from the analysis that the measuring and indexation mechanisms generate a data bank to build complex systems of visualization, according to strategies for specific readings needs. In this sense, the inhabitant or user of large cities are confronted at the begin of the third millennium with the concept of “local” in line with the multiple dynamics of the flux made up from contemporaneous articulations between: global and local, macro and micro. Furthermore, dynamics stimulated by the invasion of stock markets, speculations and the implementation of large scale systems of telecommunication and transport, all under the paradigm of new technologies.
