Socktastic Adventures: Fashion in the Business World

BY CHRIS WINSTEAD
@ VOL 12 ON APR 11, 2014

"So they say the first part of coping with your addiction is truly acknowledging that you're dependent on substance. I guess it's only fitting that we're in a church this evening, so my name is Chris and I'm addicted to socks."

In "Socktastic Adventures: Fashion in the Business World" from PechaKucha Night Bangor, ME Vol. 12, Christopher Winstead presented on a topic near and dear to his feet and sole. As he has spent the last 14 years of his professional career in the business world, Chris quickly learned that the corporate uniform of suits and ties didn’t lend themselves to a high level of creativity. Looking to add a bit of fashion into his wardrobe, Chris started looking at socks. They are both a venue for expression and an ability to add a pop or color to the board room. A huge thank you to Rebecca Krupke of Captured Moments Photography who provided her talents and skills to the images in the presentation.

Faces That Make Money

BY ROYI AKAVIA
@ VOL 27 ON DEC 18, 2015

The distinctive pieces introduced here combine a collage made of real devalued international currency and layers of varnish over which Royi Akavia paints the portraits of modern subjects who have money, make money and spend money. The works are also burned with fire to create a glasslike 3-D surface reminiscent of old world craftsmanship. The end result: The rich and famous – such as Queen Elizabeth – are situated atop such personalities as Bolivar, Leonardo, Lenin and Margaret Thatcher.

Does money make you mean?

BY PAUL SMEETS
@ VOL 34 ON JAN 30, 2018

What do you think, does money make you mean? Paul Smeets, Associate Professor in Finance at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, investigated the influence of money on prosocial behaviour over the last few years. 

Traditionally finance researchers have only focused on how to behave
to earn more money. Paul flipped this question around and asked: Does having more money influence your behaviour?
