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.

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.
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.
