CAGLIARI Posts

PKN Dallas Vol. 10 Presentations Bart Weiss loves video, in all its forms, and in this presentation (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10) he talks about the power of video, and the impact is has had, and can have. Gregory Miller decided to build a kiln -- to cook pizza -- for his uncle, and he uses his presentation (from PKN Hjorring Vol. 1) to describe all the steps that were required for the construction. PKN Cagliari Vol. 4 Posters We start the week off with one new addition to the Tumblr blog, in the form of the poster you see pictured above, for this Friday's PKN Cagliari Vol. 4.  PKN Bogota Vol. 9 PKN Bogota Vol. 9 Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for the recent PKN Bogota Vol. 9, held earlier this month -- here's a better look at the panoramic shot you see above.  Calendar We have three events happening tonight (October 22): PKN Salt Lake City Vol. 8, PKN St. Petersburg Vol. 23, and PKN Sundsvall Vol. 9. There are no events in the calendar for tomorrow, but on Wednesday you can look forward to PKN Providence Vol. 43. 

PKN Tokyo Vol. 95 Presentations Today we have a double dose of presentations from last week's PKN Tokyo Vol. 95. Nooka's Matthew Waldman is no stranger to the PK mic, and in this new presentation (in English and Japanese), he updates us on the latest Nooka projects, including his fantastic sneaker collaboration with FILA. The man behind "Shinsekai Toumei Hyouhon" (New World Transparent Specimens), Iori Tomita, shows off (in Japanese) his striking work -- produced by "enzymatically turning protein transparent, dyeing bones and cartilage" -- and the process of making them. PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 3 Posters Today we highlight from the Tumblr blog the lovely poster created for PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 3, which is set for October 9 at the Galerie Emila Filly -- you'll find the list of presenters on the official event page. Video Cagliari is getting ready for its Vol. 4, and here's a fun video invitation for the upcoming event (to be held on October 26).  Calendar After a very hectic week of PKNs -- one of our busiest weeks ever -- it's time to switch over to October, which has already close to 60 PKNs set in the calendar, a number sure to grow over the coming weeks. There are no events happening tonight, but tomorrow night (October 2) we have PKN Aalborg Vol. 9 and PKN Norrkoping vol. 19.

PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10 Presentations We all have irrational fears, and for quite a few, sharks top the list of that which is most feared. In this presentation (from PKN Louisville Vol. 3), Paul Sirek goes beyond the Jaws of Spielberg, and reveals the true nature of these creatures. And what can we learn from the most villainous villains of them all? In his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10), Nicolas Vargas takes a stab at listing 10 super villains, and explains the important lessons he has learned from their mistakes. PKN Chicago Posters We end the week with a few new posters on the Tumblr blog, including the one pictured above, for a special edition PKN happening in Chicago on July 19, as well as posters for PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7, and for PKN Erlangen Vol. 3 and 5. Here's more on that special event in Chicago:
WHEN LESS IS MORE... In association with the Society of Architectural Historians, PechaKucha Night Chicago heads for a summer road trip to the Louis Sullivan designed Charnley House in Chicago's Gold Coast. An intimate venue to be sure (so we wont get three hundred in there). Get tickets early and enjoy this amazing Chicago treasure - for one night only - invaded by PechaKucha Night. All ages show. Information at Facebook. The officially fantastic poster of this Volume is designed by Akemi Hong for the SAH. And watch out for another downtown extra Volume in mid August. Also in a very cool venue...
Video It's been a week of videos, and so why not end it with another one, this time covering the recent PKN Cagliari Vol. 3, both the event itself and behind-the-scenes. Calendar Here's what you can expect in terms of PK action over the weekend. First, tonight (July 6), you'll find the following three events: PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 13, PKN Pisa Vol. 2, and PKN Castellon de la Plana Vol. 1. On Saturday, there's PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, and PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19, which marks that city's 5th anniversary. On Sunday, you can catch PKN Christchurch Vol. 14 -- see this post for more on that event, and an update on post-earthquake Christchurch.

PKN Amersfoort Vol. 6 Presentations Tim Hoover is a DJ, producer, promoter, and entertainer whose work has both a sense of humor and wonder. Hear him rap through most of his presentation (from PKN Winnipeg Vol. 9), as he shares his love of music and hip-hop -- something he can't help but want to spread to others. (in English) Ben van der Steen is CEO of Geesa, a Dutch company that has produced bathroom and toilet products since 1885, and in this presentation (in Dutch, from PKN Amersfoort Vol. 6) he tells the story of how he joined the company. A passion for design is what drives Ben, and his journey lead to a line of products by Dutch design superstar Marcel Wanders. PKN Chicago Vol. 22 Posters We've got some terrific new posters on the Tumblr blog today, with the following events represented: PKN Warsaw Vol. 11, PKN Hong Kong Vol. 12, PKN Cagliari Vol. 3, and PKN Chicago Vol. 22 (pictured above).  Photos Again, we have a few photo galleries to share -- note that you'll also find quite a few photosets on our Flickr account, which are also divided in collections.

Calendar We're busy here at the PK mothership in preparation for tonight's (May 30) PKN Tokyo Vol. 92, which is accompanied by PKN Providence Vol. 38, PKN Jersey Vol. 1, and PKN Hamilton Vol. 10. Tomorrow, you can look forward to PKN Plzen Vol. 1, PKN Seattle Vol. 36, PKN Ulladulla Vol. 3, and PKN Xalapa Vol. 10.

We're experimenting with this new post format again, trying to give you more bang for your buck in terms of offering a daily snapshot of what's happening in the world of PechaKucha, and trying to save you from the endless streams of feed notifications that seem to clutter our lives. Presentations As we recently covered on the blog, we had a special PechaKucha event this past Friday here in Tokyo, as part of the 10th edition of the Magazine Library exhibition. We invited 5 presenters to cover topics that touch on magazines and print culture, and we'll be sharing all of them online today and tomorrow. Today, you get to hear Audrey Fondecave talk about the upcoming issue of TOO MUCH ("the magazine of romantic geography"), Mike Abelson talk about his stationery brand Postalco, and a recent printing project he embarked on, and Luis Mendo tells us how Tokyo turned this editorial designer into an artist. PKN Manizales Vol. 1 Posters We've got another new batch of PKN posters and flyers up on our Tumblr blog, including a few examples of what was produced for PKN Manizales Vol. 1 (above, a flyer), as well as from PKN Muscat Vol. 1, PKN Beirut Vol. 13, PKN Buffalo Vol. 12, PKN Cagliari Vol. 2, and PKN Moscow Vol. 12. PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10 PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10 Event Photos We know you love seeing event photos -- to get a feel for how PKNs are being done around the world -- and we're going to be sharing even more, by posting links to even more galleries than in the past. Pictured above, a scene from March's PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10, as well as a few happy attendees during the beer break.

Links A few PechaKucha-related links from around the webosphere.

  • A fun call-for-entries video (above) for the upcoming PKNs (Vol. 2 and 3) in Genoa 
  • An interview (in Russian) with our friends from PKN Moscow at Theoryandpractice
  • We don't usually like to give too much instructions on how to do a presentation -- we like to see how each person approaches the format -- but for those in need a few tips, this post might help

Calendar It's a quiet Monday with no PechaKucha Nights happening tonight, but tomorrow night, Helsingborg will be hosting its PechaKucha Night Vol. 8, happening at the Helsingborgs Stadsteater.
