City by Night, Art by Light

BY CINDI DRENNAN
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH ON APR 01, 2014

Cindi Drennan's projects covered in the following presentation look to do two things: bring life to the city -- to retailers, etc. -- at night, and broaden the audience of art installations (in this case, projected lighting installations). She accomplishes both, as you'll see through the "New Light Industrial" and "Night Mural" installations, not only bringing an audience to parts of the city they wouldn't normally visit -- especially to take in art -- but also giving artists a new audience, with their works out of the gallery and onto the street.

Izhevsk: the City of Labor Glory

BY ELENA KOLESNIKOVA
@ VOL 134 ON MAR 18, 2016

“People from my city are cute and have hearts like metal. They’re strong. Even in old age, [they] still love life.”

In Izhevsk from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 134th volume, presenter Elena Kolesnikova gives the brief history and a beautiful photo tour of her home city Izhevsk. Founded originally by pagans, the city was put on the map after the region was discovered to be iron rich. It only grew from there and the rest is all icing on the cake.
