Breaking walls

BY DAGNY TAGGERT

Boundaries are meant to be broken

BY BRYANT CHASE
@ VOL 4 ON DEC 12, 2015

The status quo is an unacceptable standard when it comes to creation in both the artistic and biological form. There is always something greater out there – your job is to prove that.
Whether it is a void or an abundance of boundaries, there is always an opportunity to utilize your surroundings to achieve something special. Bryant Chase is a media creator/producer with a background in clinical psychological research, and a passion for learning.

Plights of an Extroverted Introvert

BY RASHAD LEE
@ VOL 4 ON DEC 12, 2015

Abstracted visual elements accompanied by awkward dialogue juxtapose the perception of boundaries and how they shape us. A journey inside the mind of a fish out of water.

Boundaries as Form

BY LIAM DUNAWAY
@ VOL 4 ON DEC 12, 2015

Every boundary forms a political position and depending on this posture, a boundary can transform the world or it can preserve the status quo. This is why the most important question for me as an artist is what position do I express through my work?

On the Media

PechaKuchaNight Pensacola is still on its infancy. Being this coming event our fourth volume, we wrap up a year of trials, learning and networking. With that we learn that above anything else, PKNs is about connecting with people, connecting people and connecting their ideas. Because of that we had the chance to go get to local media and talk more about PKNPNS Vol.4. After talking on the local morning talk show, we were approached by a local entertainment news paper, and we already have more people interested in knowing more about the event than ever before.
It's amazing to see the excitement, the support and the engagement of the community. We can't wait for the night of December 12 to see how all this wil unfold, and where the surpassing of the boundaries that have been holding us will take us in the year to come.
