Given any kind of generalized cohomology theory $\mathbf{H}$, and a domain $X$ and coefficient $A$, the cocycle space $\mathbf{H}(X,A)$ is the “space”, or rather the the ∞-groupoid/homotopy type, whose
elements/objects are cocycles in $\mathbf{H}$-cohomology theory on $X$ with coefficients in $A$ (hence maps/morphisms $X \to A$);
edges/morphisms are coboundaries between these cocycles (i.e. homotopies/gauge transformations)
faces/2-morphisms are coboundaries between coboundaries;
…
n-cells/n-morphisms are $n$th order coboundaries (i.h. higher homotopies/higher gauge transformations).
Precisely: For $\mathbf{H}$ some (∞,1)-topos, and $X,A \in \mathbf{H}$ two objects, the cocycle space of cocycles on $X$ with coefficients in $A$ is the (∞,1)-categorical hom-space $\mathbf{H}(X,A)$.
The actual cohomology set $H(X,A)$ is the 0-truncation/connected components of the cocycle space:
Similarly, if $A$ is equipped with the structure of a pointed object $\ast \overset{a_0}{\to} A$, the cocycle space $\mathbf{H}(X,A)$ becomes canonically pointed by the constant morphism $const_{a_0} \colon X \to \ast \overset{a_0}{\to} A$ and the 0-truncation/connected components of the corresponding based loop space of the cocucle space is the cohomoloy set in one degree lower:
Etc.
