Symbol Dictionary

School Groups
Middle School

What do symbols and patterns express? Outside of the mathematical symbols and patterns on plates, what are some other symbols and patterns you come across every day? After a guided tour of the “Coffee Break” exhibition from the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection, we study the motifs and patterns found on the rose-water bottles, mugs, coffee cups and pitchers. We then go on to make a visual dictionary of the symbols and patterns and talk about the meaning of these images.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
