rulers and rhythm studies – cetveller ve ritim çalışmaları

1. These rulers are not timelines themselves.

2. These rulers are timeline makers.

3. The usual rulers (in the world of distance, angle or measured space) are tools for measuring and drawing, cutting etc.

4. These rulers are meant to be tools for drawing (or tools to be looked at and contemplated). I mean, I am not making an absurd proposition to ‘measure time.’

5. Sketches of bird’s eye views of chronologies

6. with or without scale.

7. Dates or any kind of marks on these rulers are proposed (only and only) as reference points. Like 0, 1, 2 on a usual ruler. I am doing my best not to make any comment on them.

8. I don’t know what 1971, 1974 or 1980 means to you. Just as I can’t guess what you will measure or draw with a 10 meter long tape measure.

1. These rulers are not timelines themselves.

2. These rulers are timeline makers.

I will update and keep on soon.
