Paper Mosaics

Teachers

  • January 13, 2022 / 19:30

Based on the artworks in the exhibition, we talk about the mosaic, which is an art form that has its origins in the floor decorations of antiquity but developed and flourished in the Byzantine Empire into a means of expressing the sacred through imagery. In the workshop, we examine the historical heritage of Istanbul from the perspective of Byzantine art, which we imitate using materials like paper and EVA. We also explore methods of bringing this method into the classroom as well.

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.

It was a quiet night in the dessert. Even the mice weren’t around. A few LEDs blinked in the dark, and the sound of a fan filled the infinite void. The conversation cutting the silence seemed to go nowhere.

He didn’t expect this from me. And I hadn’t expected that we would decide to get married that day, at that moment. Everything happened all of a sudden, but exactly like it was supposed to happen in our day. We thought of the idea of marriage simultaneously, we smiled simultaneously, blinking and opening our eyes in unison.
