Abstract

This paper explores Lefebvre’s theory of Rhythmology using works and examples of locative mediated projects made in Athens. All these projects in different ways document the lived experience and are testaments to the ever changing rhythms of the city of Athens. They use the city of Athens as a blank canvas in which to enact social activity mediated by locative media applications and social media. These kinds of projects are based on documentation, mapping and sharing of ideas, and creating places for social interaction. They are tools for the rhythmanalysist - to formulate and trace Athens’s rhythms and cultural identity.
