Poster for PKN Vladimir Vol. 18

Here's the latest poster from the city of Vladimir, Russia, for its upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 18, set for April 25.

Vladimir's affairs often seem to carry with them a sort of theme. For PKN Vladimir Vol. 13 (coming April 25th) this is not the case, but we can still delight in the warmth of this poster's cherry blossom glow.

In keeping with the PechaKucha 10-year anniversary theme, PKN Vladimir shows us that all that glitters is not gold -- rather, all that glitters (in this case) are jewel-encrusted numerals. Among the nearly 100 PechaKucha Nights around the world occuring this month, Vladimir's Volume 11 will be held in just over 24 hours.

As we discover in this presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2), she experiments with different substances' effects in developing her photographs.

This presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2) forms a collection of some of his favorite non-building photographs and what makes these photos special to him.

It also got some great coverage from the Borneo Post -- we're certainly happy to have Kuching join the craze. Calendar Here are tonight's events, featuring two Vol. 1s: PKN Bari Vol. 1, PKN Albany Vol. 1, PKN Prague Vol. 30, PKN Kiruna Vol. 3, PKN Dallas Vol. 10, and PKN Stuttgart Vol. 8.

He also worked on the feature film Where the Wild Things Are. In her presentation (in German, from PKN Aalen Vol. 6), Annegret Barth wants to introduce us to the interplay of colors. Using photos from nature, Annegret walks us through the development of the color wheel and its possible applications. (in German) PKN Vladimir Vol. 6 We don't have a full presentation to share, but PKN Vladimir organizer Boris Matin has sent us the following photos (above) and description of this rather interesting participant at the city's recent Vol. 6.

Sergei Karelin is a silversmith and goldsmith, a member of the Union of Artists of Russia, and an academic at the Petrovskaya Academy of Science and Art in St. Petersburg. The clock (in the photos) shows the countdown of the time from the moment of the Birth of the Earth to the moment of its collapse, owing to its inevitable approach to the Sun. The work calls for the drawing together of world religions, the union of all nations, and the immediate stop of all war conflicts in the face of the fatal disaster.
