PechaKucha Presentation

Bergallo & Altri Animali

PRESENTED ON OCT 31, 2014
IN GENOVA @ VOL 10

A format to make science popular through entertainment. A variety. A monthly meeting which has taken place at La Claque (teatro della Tosse) in Genoa throughout the year 2014 and which has been dedicated to the understanding of the world of animals, with special guests and music. A comic show with a specific subject, that tells which are the dynamics of a group and which are the individual behaviours that make us similar -and feel different at the same time- to all the other living forms of this piece of earth. Insects, fishes, monkeys, reptiles, dinosaurs and fantasy animals like the "elephunk" (an elephant which loves the funky music): all the beasts are recalled to explain the complex dynamics that rule our relationships. On stage: musicians, biologists, scientists of the Robotic School in Genoa  with drones and robots, dancers, actors, comedians, dragqueen and whatever contributes to tell the story of each episode through the show.

Carla Gould, designer and researcher in Toronto, demonstrates her passion for animal and human cohabitation by focusing on the relationship between pigeons and urban city dwellers to show that we are more similar and essential to each other than we realized.

IL FESTIVAL DELLA SCIENZA

BY MANUELA ARATA
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

Laboratori, conferenze, mostre e spettacoli hanno risvegliato anche quest’anno la passione per la scienza e la solita, travolgente, voglia di imparare. Come con la conferenza sul Bosone di Higgs che ha attirato una folla da stadio, o con la lezione di meccanica quantistica che si è addirittura dovuta trasferire in piazza Matteotti con il pubblico sulla scalinata di Palazzo Ducale. Quest'anno il Paese ospite è stato la Francia, ma sono venute in visita anche delegazioni da Cina, Giappone, Turchia e Russia. Grazie
all'appoggio e alla collaborazione dell'Ambasciata di Francia in Italia e del Ministero dell’Istruzione Superiore e della Ricerca, il Festival ha ospitato alcuni dei testimoni delle migliori realtà scientifiche e imprenditoriali d'oltralpe. A partire dall’inaugurazione con Serge Haroche, premio Nobel per la fisica e direttore del Collège de France.

A GARA COL TEMPO SENZA OROLOGIO – La Percezione del Tempo Negli Animali e Bambini.

BY EVELINA ISOLA
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

This project have been presented to the 12th edition of Genoa Science Festival, as a playful lab for kids. Do animals have perception of the time? According to some scientists, only humans have a real memory, while the other animals have a perception of the time limited or episodic. A different perception of time can have different utilities according to escape strategy, communication or feeding. Time and its perception are not relative only on physics books! This happens in a lot of very small animals, for example the flies that perceive the world with a slow motion effect.

In other species the perception of time is connected to their movement in the space, as in case of dolphin and bats biosonar. Children are conducted in a fascinating “time travel” in their time perceptions, from the perception that themselves have, to try out what other animals fell of time, according to the different utility in the survival strategies.

Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78

BY FRANK PALEN, ESQ., AICP
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

“Think of me as a time traveler. I’m going to take you back to a place called Buffalo in the 1970s.”

In Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78 from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, attorney and urban renewal advocate, Frank Palen, recalls the creation of a historic district for theatre and culture from a once abandoned rust belt urban core. From 1977 to 1979, Palen was Research Associate in the Center for Community Research and Development at the University at Buffalo’s School of Architecture and Environmental Design, serving as Coordinator of the Buffalo Entertainment District Project. The University at Buffalo’s graduate studio investigated the potential of promoting a theater district in what was then an increasingly abandoned section of Downtown, despite various setbacks and a challenging political climate. The result was a very high-profile effort that set an agenda for the redevelopment of Buffalo that continues today.
