Lecture 7: On some semi-automatic machines for the drawing of the architectural orders oddly invented in the seventeenth century. Transcribed by B. Alex Miller. When you need something to transfer narrative motion from one state to another, please build a machine. The narrative-based state change of the transparent geometric process and the fluidity of a machine built to replace this transparent narrative. As the process of geometric construction is carried out that is necessary to proportionally design the orders according to authors such as Serlio, a narrative is developed that prompts a movement from one proportional state to another: In the appropriate order of operation, the previous length of measure that is established for a portion of the column is subdivided into a particular fraction of that length of measure. Once this subdivision occurs, the original length has undergone a kind of state change that alters its reference from one portion of the column to another; a consistent signifier of measurement is altered through a narrative sequence of geometrical subdivision, changing its state of significance at the conclusion of each act of subdivision. In this case, the vehicle for this active state change is the sequential linearity of a narrative.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
