This is an experimental architectural drawing project based on esoteric practices, specifically exploring of the spatio-temporal, embodied practice of divination on a drawing through time-telling devices. The drawing transforms into a ritualistic and poetic act whereby ‘the drawer’ unfolds as the integral ‘hermetic reader’ within the drawing. Meanwhile, “The Enigmatic Hours of a Drawing” are crystallized within the projective and embodied constructions of the act of drawing, conceiving at the same time manifold peculiar non-instruments of drawing.
DrawingConstructions is an elective course instructed by Bahar Avanoğlu @Faculty of Architecture, Istanbul Bilgi University since 2017. The Clock(s) and The Enigmatic Hour(s) of An Architectural Drawing, The Drawer as the Hermetic Time-Reader/Teller is conducted in the fall semester 2021-2022.
