Henri Lefebvre’s final book, ‘Eléments de rythmanalyse’ was translated into English as ‘Rhythmanalysis: Space, time and everyday life’ in 2004.
In the book he discusses how certain actions can be best understood through an analysis of rhythms in time, for example the act of walking down a street or watching traffic movements.
This short video is an attempt to visualise an everyday rhythm that many of us experience – commuting – through a musical analogy of 12 bar blues.
If you are interested in these ideas you will enjoy Tim Edensor‘s 2010 book ‘Geographies of Rhythm’.
