LAUSANNE Posts

PKN Lausanne Vol. 8 Presentations Can Yücel Metin's presentation (from PKN Istanbul Vol. 14) is all about a comedy TV series called Aye, Thanks! that airs Friday nights in Turkey. He is an actor on the show, as well as a writer. Presented as part of a special PechaKucha Night that was themed on "schizophrenia," Philippe Conus is a psychiatrist who used his presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 8) to cover all aspects of the disease, debunking many aspects that are mistaken by many.

PKN Tokyo Vol. 94 Presentations As any true beer connoisseur will tell you, all beers are not created equal. In this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94), Shiro Yamada talks about the micro brewery he helped create to make a better beer (Nippon Craft Beer Inc.) and the "KAGUA" scented ale he's been producing. This presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 8) gets rather "heady," as Pierre Magistretti takes everyone on a detailed tour of the brain, and other aspects of newrobiology (the study of the nervous system). PKN Nagoya Vol. 12 Posters New on the Tumblr blog today is the poster you see above, for the upcoming PKN Nagoya Vol. 12. The event will be held on August 24 at Montage Lounge.  httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QniQ5qxaubQ Videos Dnipropetrovsk's PKN Vol. 2 was yesterday (or is possibly still happening as we write this), and organizer Volodymyr Nedogoda has shared the video you see above, to give us an idea of what the city's Vol. 1 -- held back in May -- was like.  Calendar There are two events on tap for today (August 1): PKN Glasgow Vol. 9 and PKN Azores Vol. 3.

PKN Sydney Vol. 21 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).

Cindy Waldron's "Time Out Photography," Schizoprenic Architecture, and Aalborg's Illustrated Poster

PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 1 Presentations Cindy Waldron is a professional photographer based in Blue Mountains, but her passion extends beyond her professional work. In this presentation (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 1), she walks us through a collection of personal works entitled "Time Out Photography." In their presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 9), architects Marco Bakker and Alexandre Blanc start by looking at various examples throughout history of what they see as examples of schizophrenia in architecture. They finish by describing one of their own projects -- the Swiss embassy in Algiers -- and how they also see it as reflecting a certain level of schizophrenic reality (the co-existence of two cultures). PKN Aalborg Vol. 8 Posters Our addition (pictured above) to the Tumblr blog today is from Aalborg, for that city's Vol. 8, which happens tonight. The poster was designed by Kasper Anthoni.  PKN Genoa Vol. 2 Photos A few new photo galleries to share with you today, with the shot above taken by Silvia Aresca at last week's PKN Genoa Vol. 2 (there's more to see in the photostream link below).

Calendar First, a reminder for tonight's (June 12) events: PKN Aalborg Vol. 8, PKN Toledo Vol. 2, PKN Ottawa Vol. 5, and PKN Hawkes Bay Vol. 2. Tomorrow night you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Okayama Vol. 14 and PKN Adelaide Vol. 3.

PKN Lausanne Vol. 8 Here are a few photos from PechaKucha Night in Lausanne Vol. 8 -- you'll find all the presenters listed with links on the official event page -- which organizer Cyril Veillon describes thusly: "Our PechaKucha #8 in Lausanne was on the topic of the schizophrenia. Great subject in fact. We had a powerful presentation by a rap musician who was schizophrenic. Very intense. And 2 doctors, 1 TV presenter, 2 architects, 1 dancer." Please note that that PKN Lausanne Vol. 9 is happening tomorrow night (May 11) at Bellerive-Plage -- all presenters are listed on the event page.
