Discover the Colors of the Planets

School Groups

Do you know how many planets are in the solar system? And did you know that Earth is blue, Mars is red, and Venus is brilliant white and yellow? We will craft our own celestial bodies, taking inspiration from artist Hale Tenger's installation of spherical objects that remind of the vacuum of space. We will create the unique colors and round shapes of planets in space on a two-dimensional plane using cardboard, aluminum foil and various colors of paint.

Artist Nicola Lorini in Conversation

Artist Nicola Lorini in Conversation

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.

The adventure of the Big ‘K’

The adventure of the Big ‘K’

In a bid to review the International System of Units (SI), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures gathered at the 26th General Conference on Weights and Measures on November 16, 2018. Sixty member states have voted for changing four out of seven basic units of measurement. The kilogram is among the modified. Before describing the key points, let us have a closer look into the kilogram and its history.
