Silo 468 Light Art Project

In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Frankfurt Vol. 21) Tapio Rosenius of Lighting Design Collective (Madrid, Spain) talks about his organization's work on the Silo 468 light art project for the City of Helsinki. This urban light art installation uses wind, swarm intelligence, and logarithmic lighting controls to achieve its artistic vision. The project is part of the 2012 Helsinki World Design Capital initiative.

This presentation was given prior to the project's completion, but to see its construction and debut, check out LDC's Vimeo post

PKN Helsinki Vol. 13

We absolutely love getting to look in on all of the PechaKucha Nights that happen worldwide -- and you may be surprised to find out that, conservatively speaking, there will probably be over 1000 official PKNs held in 2011, and that doesn't count one-off events. Today we take a look at Helsinki's Vol. 13, which was held last month -- there's more to see in this Flickr photoset.

PKN Helsinki Vol. 8

PechaKucha Night in Helsinki Vol. 8 was held back in January, and was organized in conjunction with the University of Helsinki, with speakers including a mix of both scientists and creatives. We've highlighted a few photos from the event in this post, but there's much more to see in this Flickr photoset. Thanks also to co-organizer Anni Puolakka for the descriptions of each presentation.

Heath Nash

A special edition of PechaKucha Night was held during Helsinki Design Week earlier this month, and one of the presenters was lighting designer Heath Nash. His presentation covered his recent work, including Bottleformball (pictured above), made up of found pieces. MoCo Loco posts a few photos from Heath's installation at the show.
