Have you ever been on a seesaw at a playground? How does a seesaw balance? After an online guided tour of the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Collection of Anatolian Weights and Measures, we will talk about what balance is and study different types of scales and weighing machines. We will then go on to design our own scale using various materials, such as paper cups, hangers and threads.
Paper cups (2 pieces)
Clothes hanger (1 piece)
Various materials for weighing (things that can fit into paper cups, such as small toys or lentils, chickpeas or rice)
Thread (yarn, straw ropes, ribbons, etc.)

Following the opening of his studio, “El Chark Societe Photographic,” on Beyoğlu’s Postacılar Caddesi in 1857, the Levantine-descent Pascal Sébah moves to yet another studio next to the Russian Embassy in 1860 with a Frenchman named A. Laroche, who, apart from having worked in Paris previously, is also quite familiar with photographic techniques.
He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
