This paper offers a sociological analysis of a performative experience of mapping in New York's Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement in 2011. It delineates the transformation of the declaration of the OWS into a graphically rendered "list of grievances" by the artist Rachel Schragis through a participatory process in the occupied space of Zuccotti Park. Drawing on the continuous transition between the ideas, the three-dimensional lived space, and the two-dimensional flat surface of graphical cartography, it demonstrates the ways in which the collective-performative map-making embodied and transcribed the interconnection between the perceived, conceived, and lived space-time(s) (Lefebvre 1974, Harvey 2006) within the occupied space of the OWS.

Mapeamento de uma ocupação: uma declaração renderizada graficamente

Este artigo oferece uma análise sociológica de uma experiência performativa de mapeamento no movimento Occupy Wall Street (OWS) de Nova York em 2011. Ele delineia a transformação da declaração do OWS em uma "lista de grievances (demandas-sofrimentos-queixas)" graficamente representada pela artista Rachel Schragis por meio de um processo participativo no espaço ocupado do Parque Zuccotti. Baseando-se na transição contínua entre as ideias, o espaço tridimensional vivido e a superfície plana bidimensional da cartografia gráfica, demonstra as maneiras pelas quais a cartografia coletiva-performativa incorporou e transcreveu a interconexão entre o percebido, percebido, o concebido e o espaço-tempo(s) vivido (Lefebvre 1974, Harvey 2006) dentro do espaço ocupado do OWS.
