Art of the Pencils

BY CAROLINE WEAVER
@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

“Pencil is a small thing that can make a big difference in the lives of people who use them.”

In "Art of the Pencil" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16 , Caroline Weaver, amateur pencil collector but lifelong pencil lover, founded CW Pencil Enterprise in November 2014. With her pencil experts, Caroline digs up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history. As simple as it may be, the pencil is something which despite advances in technology will never become obsolete.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016.

Flowers and Nuclear Warfare

BY ERIC LOPRESTI
@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

“I Think about the relationship to perception…..seeing is believing.”

In "Flowers and Nuclear Warfare" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16Eric LoPresti makes artwork that examines the imposition of technology upon the environment and the aftermath of the Cold War. His dramatic landscapes juxtapose abstract elements with representations of the vast deserts of the American west, exploring relationships between science, identity, history and conflict. Following in the painterly tradition of the apocalyptic sublime, LoPresti’s artistic practice explores how our lives are shaped by trauma and beauty.

Huck Yeah

BY KRIS MOREAU
@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

Raft living on the Mississippi River today would make Mark Twain proud. Architectural designer and adventure cyclist Kris Moreau takes us on a 2,376 mile bike trip down the Big Muddy from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Giant lumberjacks, grain silo houses, and floating geodesic domes speckle the banks of North America's most legendary river-- a culture highway that deserves to be on the radar of architects and makers everywhere.
