The Ecological Footprint

School Groups
Middle School

What is the most distinct mark we leave behind when we walk on the beach or in the forest? Have you ever heard of the notions of an ecological footprint, a water footprint, or a carbon footprint? Our workshop is based on the 17th Istanbul Biennial’s themes of sustainability, climate change, ecology, and the human impact on the environment. We talk about our ecological footprint, a measure of our impact on the planet, and what we can do to reduce it. We use the method of paper-folding to make our drawing paper come alive, as we create an easy-to-remember visualization of the notion of ecological footprint in our minds.

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’

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.
