> Myriorama: Variations on a Theme
Workshop by Ali Paşaoğlu & Bora Özkuş
as a part of ‘Lines of/for/among/around Architecture’, organized by Bahar Avanoğlu, Bilge Bal, Gizem Albayrak
hosted by Ercüment Kalmık Müzesi
Re-deal the cards and carry on with the story... Myriorama is a word derived from "a myriad of views", a 19th century invention for amusement and contemplation, a series of cards that can be arranged into endless landscapes.
The workshop will explore potentials of this medium in architectural drawing and storytelling. Beyoğlu street-scape will be our hunting ground for architectural context and features. Our imaginative landscape and our characters will be rendered with architectural drawing techniques and translated into myriorama cards. Re-appearing characters and settings will form a background for endlessly reproducible collective stories.
