Making the contradictions visible


Sunday 9th February AM- The mapping team prepares to walk the landscape in three areas. Tracing and juxtaposing  the borders of the current occupation, the proposed limit in certified plans, and the foreseen future expansion for each of the 'Agrupacion Familiar', reveals a complex and contested field of actors. As described by one of the mappers these include, the first comer, the corrupt, the tourist and the newcomer.

A struggle to transpose the plan prepared by a quantity surveyor, devoid of any reference to the topography, onto the aerial photograph. The disjuncture between these two is stark.
