BY DEREK COGHLAN
@ VOL 5
ON OCT 28, 2014

Gothenburg Celebrates Diversity
The following is a guest post from PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson -- you can read a more detailed version of the message in Swedish here.PechaKucha Gothenburg – celebrating diversity since 2006 The image of Sweden — famous for our middle-ground politics, generous immigration policies and reputation for tolerance — basically changed over night on September 19th when the far-right and anti-immigrantSweden Democrats were voted into Sweden's parliament and the neo-nazi Party of the Swedes got a seat in Grästorp Municipality council, making them the first national socialist party to get any mandate in a Swedish political assembly since the 1940s. Welcome to the suburb In Gothenburg we had planned to temporarily move one of our events to the suburbs prior to the election, but now it undeniably feels more important than ever. So in an attempt to break out of our inner-city bubble we are moving our next PechaKucha event to the Gothenburg suburb of Angered. Our hope is to counteract segregation and create a win-win situation by inspiring to new meetings and collaborations. Another form of bubble If it's anything we should have learned from the latest financial bubble, it's that nobody is unaffected by a crises in our globalized world – that everyone is interconnected and that isolation is no sustainable solution. Despite this we see a growing segregation in most societies all over the world. Let's do what we can to change this trend, and instead celebrate diversity.
Candidates to Use the PechaKucha Format
Who says the 20x20 PechaKucha format can't work for politicians? PechaKucha Night in Aalen organizer Thomas Maile sends word of an interesting use of the format, read more below:In our part of Germany, Baden-Württemberg, we have in a few weeks an election for a new parliament. For our home region, we have five candidates who are vying to become a member of parliament. Through our local newspaper, we are organizing a PechaKucha Night for politics.

Following the presentations, we are planning a discussion session with visitors.The event happens this coming Monday (February 28) -- here's the event page, and here are more details in German, as published in the Schwabische Post. And take note that the next regular PKN in Aalen, Vol. 6, will happen on March 25 at Freudenschmaus -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.
The Work of Crofton & Benjamin Architects, Electronic Artists Eternity Brothers, and a Special PKN for Ekaterinburg
Presentations Leon Conradie is an experienced architectural academic, who is doing his Masters Research on "The Work of Crofton & Benjamin Architects: 1955 -1964." Crofton & Benjamin Architects were prolific in the 50s and 60s on beachfront developments, and have designed many iconic Durban buildings, each with an Art Deco style. In his presentation (from PKN Durban Vol. 7), Leon gives us a tour of these buildings, and points out their unique quirks. Pavel Fila is an IT specialist, programmer, and also organiser of the "Šramlfest" festival. In his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1), he talks about Eternity Brothers, a local group of VJs and electronic artists, and shares some of their work. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for the upcoming PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 6 (pictured above), which will be part of the The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary Art, an important event on the city's cultural agenda. It will also be the first time a PKN in Ekaterinburg is themed, with all presentations tied to art -- below, more details on the event:This time PechaKucha Night Ekaterinburg invites everyone to think about contemporary art during the parallel program of The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary art. We wonder if there is some place for modern art in modern person`s life? You can tell there about your personal experience, projects, interests or ideas in the field of modern art. We try to find the answer if it is necessary to be an artist to make art? Do you make art? Does your art have a target? What do you what from contemporary art as a consumer? How are your projects connected with art? Photos Take a look at last week's PKN Singapore Vol. 5 courtesy of this photo gallery [Facebook]. As organizer Jon Siegel tells us, it was a fantastic event with a great turnout (close to 300) and a terrific lineup of presenters. Above, a look at part of the crowd, and presenter Jon "Yongfook" Cockle. Calendar We kick off the week with tonight's (September 10) PKN Muscat Vol. 2, and tomorrow you can catch Toronto's Vol. 17.

According to her conception of design, fashion, photography, architecture, music and beauty are all in spirational. But she is also concerned with the practical elements of design.For this reason, Dai has dedicate herself to designing the most suitable glasses, particularly for Asians with lower noses. In addition to sharing her unique design concepts, Emily Dai also shared photos of GenicEyewear’s different product styles, incorporating retro shapes,flamboyant colours and textures. Dai says: “Good design must be personalised.”Her workshop’s stated aim is “to build glasses that belong to the owner.”Customers need only spend a couple of hours and curtesy of Genic Eyewear, they will have their own unique pair of glasses. 2、郑雷：Zheng Lei 如果你认为设计师的创造力只局限在产品领域，那你就OUT了！“设计好的商业模式”是郑雷的设计团队的亮点之一。电子产品渗透在现代人生活的方方面面，电脑、移动硬盘、充电宝……苦于被各类电子产品所奴役的人们，不妨关注一下郑雷团队所设计的产品。 他通过20张图片分享了为生活做减法的设计理念。其中包括一款可以与所有笔记本电脑兼容的电源，轻薄便于携带，小身材大用途，用过的人都说好。郑雷说，他们除了要做最棒的设计和产品之外，还竭尽全力设计出好的商业模式，力求一条“无短板”的设计链条。因此，执行力显得至关重要。高效高质完成从设计到生产销售的每一个环节，用自身强大的气场吸引业界关注。这种专注的精气神儿，能不点个赞吗？ If you think the designer's creativity is only limited to the production field then you are wrong. The design of a good business model is one of the specialties of Zheng Lei's design team. Electronic product penetration in all aspects of modern life, from computers toexternal hard drives. Lei showed 20 pictures to share the idea of design as a philosophy for life, including a notebook computer compatible with all powersystems. Lei believes execution is critical, promoting efficient high-qualityfinish right down the line, from design to production to sales 3、李成 Cheng Lee 在李成看来，“不确定性”是设计的魂儿，也是设计的根。社会发展日新月异，现代人如果捧着一个原始人专属的青铜器来喝水，一定会被另眼相看，我们回不到过去的生活，也无法延续往昔的生活状态，人类的生活需求在岁月更迭中渐渐演变，如何抓住这种变化，看透生活的“不确定性”，李成认为这是设计师应该思考的一大课题。 “随着社会发展，产品超出了我们过去的预期。”李成通过他设计的产品图片，比如手指咖啡杯，两面拖鞋来展现他赋予产品的新使命。不断超越客户的预期，不妄图去界定一个客户是他所坚持的设计理念。 In Li Cheng's view "uncertainty" is not simply design’s spirit, it is also design’s roots. In a developing, ever-changing society, if modern people hold on to a primitive ideas we won’t be able to adapt to contemporary life and the new environment. The demands of human beings are gradually evolving as time changes, through the "uncertainty" of life. Li Cheng considers that this is a major issue for designers. "With the development of society, products must exceed our expectations of the past,” says Li. Showing examples of his innovations, Li advocates that designers must continuously exceed the expectations of customers and never try to define or pigeonhole who their customers are. 4、魏明 William Wei 设计师魏明与大家分享的第一张图上有个大大的“WHY”。为什么要做设计，希望通过设计达到什么目的，处女座的他，把严谨思维和完美主义融入设计当中。 以“为纯粹而设计”和“为商业而设计”为例。他做的一款电子产品，通过透明的外壳将产品内部的元器件都展现在消费者的眼中，毫无遮掩，纯粹成一种境界。商业，不应该成为设计师避而不谈的词儿。“做什么设计都是为了消费者可以买单”，这个观点直截了当。他为大家展示了一款在网站上销售的手表，“原材料的成本不高，但是通过设计提升了产品的价值，带给了使用者独特的体验”，这番话诚恳而实在。 “通过设计触摸未来”是一个较为新颖的观点。魏明认为设计未来是他的一大使命，而科技代表未来，因此在他的设计中可以看到科技的踪影。“现代人离不开通讯工具，从最初的BB机演变成今天的触屏手机，未来是否存在3D的手机？” 这款基于“未来”和“科技”理念设计的手机为他赢得了红点设计奖。 William Wei’s presentation concerned the rhetoric question “Why We Design?” What is the purpose of design? Wei promotes a rigorous scientific way of thinking with perfectionism in every aspect of his design. Wei held-up “pure design" and“commercial design" as conceptual examples, showing images of an electronic product, the internal components visible through a transparent shell, arguing that without a cover, the product is in a pure state. “Business should not be avoided” Wei warns the audience as "whatever you do the consumer must pay for it”. Wei view’s views are very straightforward noting the cost of raw materials is not high. But Wei enhances the value of the product bydesign to bring a unique user-experience to people. Touching the future with design is a perspective Wei Ming upholds believing in the great mission of the future and of the technology that will build it. Wei notes that modern people and communication tools are already inseparable asking what if there are 3D mobile phones in the future? It is this kind of visionary thinking that won Wei the Red Dot Design Award. 记住第二十一期吱吱喳喳读图夜的日期！ 9月20日在欢乐海岸小巴黎餐厅吱吱喳喳读图夜与第一届香港深圳设计双年展 关注我们的官方微信的帐户：Riptide锐态 Mark the date for PKN Volume #21!

Gender and the General Election
"Politicians do not put enough commitment to the issues that really affect women."In Gender and the General Election, from Huddersfield, Vol. 14, Coco Toma, Vice President Communication and Democracy at the Huddersfield Student Union, looks at developing women's engagement with politics in the 21st century. She takes us back in history to women's suffrage, and on through to the eyes of some of her hero's Rosa Parks, Aung San Suu Kyi, and others, discussing how they have helped been pioneers in many of the political issues woman have faced.
We are SOLD OUT! Vol 10 Pecha Kucha Night 'HOME'
In just a few days we will be heading along to the Geffrye Museum on Kingsland Road in Shoredtich for a wonderful evening of inspiring talks and we have now reached full capacity. The wonderful venue, the Geffrye Museum will be buzzing with 200 plus people! As a reminder about what is happening on 12 May at the Geffrye Museum - This time around we have the theme "Home". It will totally up to the presenters interpretations of what they talk about - what "Home" means to them. With housing numbers and social housing a key concern for England's future; what the term "Home" really means is most definitely a personal perspective. Everyone has a different idea and varying experience of "Home", depending on where it is, who owns it, and what they do in it. Also, we think Home is topical subject for the month of May, given the mayoral election will have just taken place on 5 May 2016. ‘Home’ - a place where you long to go back to, longed to leave. Is it house, a yurt, a caravan or are you just a long way away from it. It is the one global thing we all share, no matter what our race, income or religion, we all want a place we can call ‘Home’. Further the venue of the Geffrye Museum - the Museum of the Home, which explores the home from 1600 to the present day has also influenced the choice of this theme. We can't wait to see you there!
