Ceramic Assemblies

BY LIMINAL PROJECTS (OMAR KAHN AND LAURA GARÓFALO)
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives."

In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

Aliens Might Have Claimed My Sisters

"The love of the process isnt about solving, but about the asking. It's taking your agenda out of the picture and seeing what there is to be discovered." Leah Ball's childhood fascination with outer space, alien beings, and cosmic thinking informs her research, inquiry, and design process. In "Aliens Might Have Claimed My Sisters" from PKN Chicago Vol. 29 Leah shows us her passion for creation, and how that passion started out with metal working, and has led her to ceramics. Every work she creates she does so in reference to her miniscule presence in the vast universe.

21st Century History Painter

"...taking these historical events that were really happening in our time and treating them in the way they were done in 19th-century romantic paintings"From 21st Century History Painter at Powered by PechaKucha Event: United States Artists 2014 Artists Assembly, Sandow Birk presents selections of a prolific body of wide-ranging works, including paintings and woodblock prints. Influenced by nineteenth century European romantic painting, he juxtaposes layers of provocative modern day events, such as the LA Riots, Wars in the Middle East, or the Stonewall Riots upon the overly dramatic forms found in art two centuries ago.

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19 - 'Lessons'

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19 - 'Lessons' We're going back to school for PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19. Inspired by the start of the new academic term, we thought we'd focus on what lessons our speakers can teach us over the course of the evening. So if you've ever fancied learning how to be a calligraphist or wondered about whether we can or should love robots, or had aspirations of being a comedian, then this PechaKucha is for you. All of our speakers will be taking the PechaKucha 20x20 challenge: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide, no stopping. For Vol. 19 we're going to PLANT, NOMA's latest development following the awesome Pilcrow Pub, now overseen by our friends, and PechaKucha alumni, OH OK Ltd. PLANT offers everyone the chance to learn a new skill through their wonderful array of free and cheap workshops. The only condition: whatever you do has to make Manchester greater. On the night you'll get to play with ceramics and see PLANT NOMA'S drawing robot in action. Plus, we'll have Emma Reynolds who will draw your portrait in 3 minutes. And finally, our resident photographer Fiona Finchett will be presenting her latest exhibition on the wall space around the venue. So get down early to check out all that's on offer. The doors open at 19:00 and the talks start at 19:30. We'll have a beer break just after 20:00. The talks should be finished by around 21:00 where you'll have a chance to mingle afterwards before inevitably heading across to The Pilcrow Pub for last orders.    Speakers Joyce Lee - Calligraphist Chris Tavner - Comedian  Dr Scott Midson - Postdoctoral Research Associate, The Lincoln Theological Institute Matthew Shribman - Science Presenter, Innovation Consultant​,​ Musician and Tutor Rhys Archer - Researcher PhD student and founder, Women of Science Duncan Craig - Founder, Survivors Manchester Matthew Holmes - The Derelict Explorer Sue Platt and Robert Hamilton - The Society of the Spectacles   Thanks Thanks as ever to our paper sponsors, G . F Smith.   About PLANT, NOMA PLANT is a neighbourhood design studio. Inside you'll find woodwork, ceramics, and sewing, wood, clay, and cloth. Through workshops, masterclasses and exhibitions in collaboration with you, the public, we hope to give something back to the city. Something that will make Manchester an even better place to be.
