Online Video Cartography

by Karla Brunet

“Amazon – A River Story” is an emotional audiovisual cartography developed by Ecoarte / UFBA.It is a collection of short videos, documentation, data visualization, whiteboard, rotoscoping,political critique and text clips that create a geolocated audiovisual narrative of the Amazon River. The initial plot of this mapped video narrative was the first outrigger canoe expedition along the Amazon River from Santarém to Belém. It was almost 1000 k of paddling on this great and mysterious river. Humidity, heat, mosquitoes, tiredness were part of the greatness of this11-day paddling experience to sense the biggest river in the world with our own bodies.
