The Flying Grass Carpet

Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos of HUNK-design and Eddy Kaijser (ID Eddy) have a dream, and it's an inspired one: to see their "Flying Grass Carpet" project take flight and bring a touch of parklife to city centers around the world. Modeled after the idea of creating a giant Persian rug, the massive carpet measures up to 58m x 32 m -- it's adjustable, going down to 22m x 18m -- creating an instant field for anyone to enjoy as they would any park. The carpet is made of over 85 million pieces of artificial grass, using varied lengths and colors to create a satisfying texture. Bart, Nadine, and Eddy's goal is to have the carpet travel from city to city. So far, "The Flying Grass Carpet" has been spotted in the Netherlands (Rotterdam and Amsterdam) and Germany (Aachen). If you'd like to have it visit your city, you can find out how from the official project website. Bart and Nadine coordinate Pecha Kucha Night in Rotterdam, and presented the "Flying Grass Carpet" project at last week's inaugural PKN in Maastricht.

PKN Budapest and the Flying Carpet

Way back in 2009, PechaKucha Night in Budapest Vol. 12 played host to Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos' "Flying Grass Carpet" -- and we even covered it in a post. Looking through Flickr we just fell upon this new photo that was taken at the same time as the one in the original post (both by Flickr user bujatt), and we just wanted to share it because it's such an amazing view.

Words Mean Things

"Words trigger emotions, they convey feelings, they describe and reveal." Average humans will often converse on a daily basis exchanging at least 200 words per minute. With this many of these words flying by, it's hard to sit back and think on what each word can really mean. In "Words Mean Things" from PKN Markham Vol. 1, Omar Khafagy takes us through on just a sample of what it's like to read a little deeper into what we say.

Scribbles

  “I’m a firm believer that most good ideas come from nothing but scribbles.” Graphic designer Katrina Dixon speaks on the power a simple scribble can have in initiating something bigger. From Leonardo DaVinci's scribbles of flying machines to Thomas Edison's drawings of light bulbs, in “Scribbles” from PKN Bedford Vol. 3, she illustrates the power a few lines of paper can have on the future of the human race.
