Sculptor Nick Sayers began very small.
He was fascinated with the sphere, and began creating spheres from objects not ordinarily associated with this three-dimensional shape -- like measuring tape. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Geodesic Dome Sculptures" from PKN Brighton Vol. 18, Nick shows us some of his works, from very small spheres to geodesic domes large enough sit in. His work culminates into a new, grander project: a 120-sided geodesic dome large enough for people to stand in -- all constructed from real estate signs.

In a fascinating recounting, he tells us of brood chambers, nectar, queens, drones, workers, as well as the trials and triumphs of his journey towards jars of sweet, golden honey.

A Creative Community for Designers in Sydney, Living with Schizophrenia, and a PKN in Brighton
Presentations In this presentation (from PKN Sydney Vol. 21) by Anna Lise de Lorenzo you'll find out all about &company, a project that gives emerging designers the opportunity to build their design experience within a creative community. They provide mentoring, facilitate production with local craftspeople and manufacturers, and take care of the marketing and distribution of the design. &company is on a mission to give designers a leg-up as they develop into capable and confident professionals. Not just for designers, the new Pop-Up premises in The Rocks invites anyone in to come and make something in the workshop, learn new skills in a class, or check out the work by their designers in the gallery and store. Poet and rapper Pablo Xavier suffers from schizophrenia, but he feels much better now. Through poetry and images, he explains how hard it has been. A very personal and touching presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 9). Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, first for PKN London Vol. 7 (pictured above), and then for PKN Gainesville Vol. 4, which are happening on June 28 and 29 respectively. Photos We have one set of photos to share with you today, taken at last week's PKN Brighton Vol. 11 -- you're seeing one of those photos above. Of course, you can always find plenty of other event photos on our PechaKucha Night Flickr account. Calendar Back from the weekend, you can start your week with tonight's PKN Rotterdam Vol. 30. Tomorrow (June 26), you can look for the following two events: PKN Amersfoort Vol. 7 and PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 25.

Brighton in June
The next PechaKucha Night in Brighton (Vol. 8) is going to happen June 16 at Phoenix Brighton. The photos included in this post are from one of the previous Brighton PKNs, that organizer Branwen Lorigan sent us for inclusion in the "city loop." What's that you ask? The PechaKucha city loop is the collection of photos from PK cities around the world that you see usually before the event and during the beer break. It currently includes a photo from over 170 of the PK cities, and we keep adding to it as we get new cities (with a photo) to add.

PechaKucha Night in Brighton Vol. 7 may have happened last week, but we do like to keep track here of flyers and posters that are being produced for PKNs worldwide, and so here's a look at Brighton's latest contribution. Let's also mention that PKN Brighton Vol. 8 is set to happen June 16 at Phoenix Brighton.
