Information Retrieval

"Information Retrieval" is the title of an on-going series of works by Geraldine Lau. The art is inspired by maps, plans, and elevations; both contemporary and antique. In her presentation (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) we find out how she processes imagery and data to create new works -- be it a drawing, an infographic chart, or an art spoof collage.

Presenter Information and Tips!

  Thank you so much for having the courage to share your unique perspective in the 20x20 format. Having prepared thoroughly, you will confidently deliver a flawless address to a fully-engaged audience. Here are some tips to help you prepare an awesome 20x20 presentation. Tell a story. The best presentations are often good stories instead of just a bunch of facts or portfolio pieces strung together. Take the audience on a journey (albeit a short one) that has an intro, development, and conclusion. Think about how your story will combine with the images you've chosen to solidify your message and give the audience a rich experience. Be sure to share with the audience why your presentation topic is important to you and why they should care about it too. Decide what is most the important thing you want your audience remember. If the audience could remember just one thing from your presentation, what would you want that to be? Once you figure that out, your talking points and images will revolve around that theme. Use powerful, relevant images. The images you choose should reinforce your ideas. Make sure your images are high quality and that you have permission to use them. Don’t cram too much into your presentation. Even though Pecha Kucha/20x20 presentations are always exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds (20 images, 20 seconds each), presenters often try to cram too much information into that short window and then have to talk rapidly to fit everything in. Less is more. Carefully edit out anything that isn’t vital to some aspect of your piece. Download a practice Pecha Kucha presentation PowerPoint to help you get the timing of your script just right before investing too much time finding images (you must be in slideshow mode in order for the slides to automatically advance). Keep your presentation simple, limited to a single theme/topic, and tell us a story. You can always sign up to do another 20x20 if your extra material can be fashioned into another fabulous presentation. Practice? Practice. Practice! The best way to stave off nerves and build confidence for speaking in front of a group is to practice your presentation several times. I encourage speakers to practice short pieces like this at least 10 times. Having many rehearsals under your belt will allow you to be comfortable and have fun during your presentation! Tips provided by Samantha Nienow of Red Zest Design. Presentation Ground Rules Your final presentation must include 20 images. Notice that we say "images" and not "slides." Successful PKN presentations usually have images that complement what the speaker is saying and not a bunch of bullets and text on the slide. Each image will be displayed for exactly 20 seconds. The images automatically progress during the presentation. Speakers have no control over the advancement of the slides. No political campaigning. No sales pitches. No preaching. No inappropriate images or language. Remember, you will be presenting in a public space that is open to people of all ages. Audiences may include everyone from high school students to retired folks in their ninth decade on the planet. Simply put, if you wouldn’t say it in front of your mom, don’t say it in front of this audience.

From Flaneur to Panneur

What defines the 21st century individual? In the 19th century, flaneurs leisurely walked the arcades of their cities and saw what they could see. In the 20th century, from high-rise buildings voyuers utilized cameras or binoculars to peer into the lives of others from afar. In "From Flaneur to Panneur" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 110, architect and thinker Antoine Vaxelaire proposes that we, citizens of the new millenium, are panneurs or those who pan the surface of the earth (or in our case, the internet), never going too deep, for information. We stuff our heads like Christmas turkeys with perhaps needless information, always moving forward, never looking back, and remaining always in the now. One has to wonder, is this good, bad, or just

The Information of Space

“Space is information-rich, and the events that occur therein provide narrative.” Miles Thorogood explores how space provides information and can be interpreted by artists in different ways. In “The Information of Space” from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see this concept is the basis behind Audio Metaphor, a company which transforms text into soundscape composition.

Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information

"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation." From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.
