Featured Presentation

Get ready for a small bit of drama, guys in hot pants, and a unicorn semen reference. Ryan Bedell took his pictures on his 101 mile bike ride today. He had just enough time to throw them into his presentation (and take a shower).

So This Just Happened

BY DALE WEISS
@ VOL 16 ON NOV 12, 2016

In the middle of preparing a completely different presentation, Dale Weiss' life was interrupted by a necessary trip to St. Petersburg, Florida to attend his son's wedding. He lost his window to work on that presentation, but fortunately St. Petersburg provided more than enough material for this serendipidous PechaKucha.

Pop Up Urbanism – Black Rock City

BY THOM WHITE
@ VOL 16 ON NOV 12, 2016

What happens when some friends start having a Summer solstice bonfire on the beach? Well, if you keep it up long enough you end up building the 3rd largest city in Nevada for 70,000 radical self-expressionists for one week a year, and then erasing all trace of it until the next solstice. Thom White has been participating for a number of years and shares his insider knowledge of Black Rock City and the Burning Man Festival.

Dog + Ma = Dogma

BY PAM WOODSON
@ VOL 16 ON NOV 12, 2016

The Greek definition of Dogma is that which one thinks is true. In the case of Pam Woodson and her adopted shelter dog, Sully, the line between what Pam thinks is true is what Sully thinks is true may not matter, as long as Pam can become the person her dog thinks she is. Please enjoy this presentation as Pam channels the voice of Sully to share their life together.

Success and Empowerment Through Fear

BY DR. NARKETTA SPARKMAN-KEY
@ VOL 16 ON NOV 12, 2016

Dr. Narketta Sparkman-Key looks at fear as merely a concept that can change. She realizes that fear can cause you to change direction from where you wanted to go, but if you can push through that fear, you empower yourself to achieve the life that you choose for yourself.

Muses of Tuscany

BY DOROTHY FAGAN
@ VOL 16 ON NOV 12, 2016

One year Dorothy Fagan wondered in one of her watercolor paintings what it would be like to live in Tuscany long enough to absorb the lifestyle. The next year she found herself on an extended artistic retreat doing just that. Here she shares some snippets of that experience, which has now become a CreativSOUP Retreat that you can join with her.

Presidents Heads

BY LITA TIRAK
@ VOL 15 ON AUG 20, 2016

A contractor was hired to demolish these giant busts of all the US presidents from a closed attraction near Williamsburg, Virginia. He couldn't bear to destroy the artwork, so they were transported to a nearby farm field to hopefully await resurrection sometime in the future. This photo essay, and spoken PK essay, by Lita Tirak looks for meaning in the transportation damage and Mother Nature taking her due course.

"Blank"

BY LULÚ DE PANBEHCHI
@ VOL 15 ON AUG 20, 2016

Lulu De Panbehchi has taken a simple construct of typology and managed to transform it into a metaphor for life. Can the meaning of life exist in the blank space between two brackets?
