Discovering Themes

No Boobs, No Problem!

BY LULÚ DE PANBEHCHI
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

This presentation is a continuum of some of Lulu De Panbehchi's previous PK talks. We have seen her journey through chemotherapy as interpreted through her photography, her outlooks on life and her work at the time, and now her perspective on life after breast cancer. One thing is obvious, Lulu is a positive spirit.

BY KURT WILLIAMSON

Amaryllis

BY ROBERT OPPECKER
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

Robert Oppecker thought he was just recording the process of his wife's amaryllis as it grew and bloomed. However, as he looked at the photos he was taking, and noticed the background as well, the series became a visual metaphor for connections to the past, to family, and to what is to become.

BY TIRZA SHELTON
@ VOL 11 ON MAR 07, 2015

We know what most of you are thinking, but there's another four letter word that begins with "F". Tirza Shelton guides us through what that word entails through our lives and inspires the possibilities if we don't succumb to it.

Art Drop Day

BY DALE WEISS
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

Dale Weiss had another presentation all ready for Williamsburg's Vol. 10, when this crossed his Facebook feed. There have been sporadic art drops before, but when artist Jake Parker declared the first Tuesday in September as World Art Drop Day, Dale had to get involved. This presentation cronicles the experience, and foretells of the inevitable viral spread of this new annual event.

The Heavens Declare

BY ANDREW CRONAN
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

If you want an idea of the vastness of the universe, a good scale of reference is helpfull. Andrew Cronan uses Williamsburg's main avenue, Duke of Gloucester Street, to give some relative scale to our solar system, but then takes us to the far reaches of our galaxy, and beyond. For Andy, when he looks at those marvels beyond, it is easy to see the presence of God.

The economic development director for the city, Michele DeWitt, gives us all the W's of Williamsburg's newly created Arts District (except perhaps for who is NinjArt?).

For Goodness Sake

BY STEPHANIE PAUL
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

Stephanie Paul's usual astute view of the human condition this time focuses on our perceptions of goodness. For such a simple concept, she shows us how our own attitdes toward goodness and how we apply it to ourselves is anything but simple.
