Employing a theoretical-practical methodology, which includes literature review and case study of the intervention Daqui Prali, that has been done in urban centers of the cities of Recife and São Paulo. This research aims to investigate the city as the media environment, in which the cultural mapping occupy a preponderant role. The hypothesis is that the body acts as an agent of possible communication processes.Keywords: body and city, body and environment; corpomídia; cartography; body-cartographer; hiker.
