summary What does it mean to generate activity?A: The majority of visitors to the Olympics are most commonly the spectatorsof the various competitions who not only observe the sports, but are also part ofthe larger experiences of the crowd and the activity associated with that venuein particular. By mapping the conglomeration of a multitude of experiences atdiffering sites, the visitor can be located within the larger collective dynamic ofthe city and the spectacle of the Olympic event. The mere act of documentationand recording text enables an inscription of a memory, thus translating a singularnotion into a tangible, visible object that is infi nitely linked to the city of Athens. While allowing for multiple variables of user groups and ranges of time, thisactivity encourages both individual and group patronage, as well as supportingthree levels of interaction varying from quickly citing a location to a more privatejournaling session. With an issued card, the visitor can electronically documentthemselves within the Olympic park at a multitude of sites by swiping the card,or have the option for journaling briefl y or for an extended period of time.
