Abstract

The aim of this paper is to discuss the representation of spatiality in the interaction between humans and the environment. The work focuses on the movement and relations involved in these past and present interactions. Theoretical reflections are based on the study of the human use of Butiá palm trees in Uruguay. A variety of techniques were used to carry out an ethnographic work that proposes an exercise for the representation of spatiality. The dialogue among these different ways of representing diachronic spatiality in human-palm relationships aims to critically analyse the use of participatory mapping in land management. We propose a non-aerial representation of the spatiality of human-palm relationships with implications on the discussions on the hegemonic ways of representing space.
