On behalf of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) and Ashoka University, India, we are pleased to invite you to submit proposals for organized panels and roundtables to be presented at the fifth AAS-in-Asia Conference to be held between 5th and 8th of July 2018 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, India.
Scale and proportion in art and architecture are both concerned with size: while scale refers to the size of an object in relationship to another object, proportion refers to the relative size of parts of a whole. Throughout history of art, many artworks represent what was considered as an ideal based on the ancient classical Greek model and therefore serve as an illustration of both scale and proportion in art.
Here, we are interested in how scale and proportion function today in art and architecture, therefore we invite you to submit papers to bring scale and scaling into view. What ideals and/or ideology do they represent, how measurement scales are built and what are these, what are the relationships between materiality and size?
