Velvetology – ( βελουδολογία) was created for the tenth year celebration of Velvet magazine. Through an algorithm all velvet issues were searched to find the most used words during the decade. This words, were printed and sticked on the streets of Athens forming a route from Velvet Room (where the magazine used to be publicised) to Romantzo (where the Ten Velvet Years Festival and the exhibition took place). The route has formed a new narrative through the words used, a non linear poem taking form on the passenger’s eyes. While reminding us the decade’s fields of interests, on the same time words can take a new meaning in the context they are hosted.
