A hybrid way to navigate the city: visual and aural cartography of the city of Athens
by Katerina Antonaki; Eleni Glinou
International Journal of Arts and Technology (IJART), Vol. 10, No. 3, 2017

Abstract: Our experience of the city is formed through a constant symbiosis with a vast amount of printed information. In this article, we illustrate the aural aspects of those printed information in the urban space. We do that by referring to current discourses around visual and sound theories and by engaging contemporary open source technologies/software. The text is part of a wider design-research project which is in progress and which investigates the aural qualities of the printed information of urban space and tries to 'translate' the so called visual noise of urban space into sound. The article is based on the conceptual end of designing an app which will translate the visual noise of urban space into sounds.
