A Hundred Words about a Trillion

BY EMILY INGLIS
@ VOL 33 ON APR 22, 2016

Emily Inglis - gardener and artist

If you are not an astrophysicist or a global economist a trillion is an abstract number, too big to grasp. How big is it? What does it buy? In my talk I will be comparing and contrasting what a trillion is worth. Looking at monetary value globally. How serious is national debt? How much would it cost to buy Wales? If you had enough money could you buy a unicorn? Or a house in Mayfair? These questions will be probed.

Encounter with Den Houter

BY DAAN DEN HOUTER
@ VOL 6 ON MAY 23, 2013

Den Houter brings multiple, contradictory, subjects together in the same single work. Resulting into pieces that are in conflict with themselves. Triggering the discussion about their own existence and the viewers opinion.
Using humor and cynicism he creates another perspective on the matter of art and ones own assumptions towards our daily life surroundings.

Bridges of Europe

BY ROBIN STAM
@ VOL 8 ON DEC 03, 2013

On the first of January 2002 new banknotes were introduced in Europe. In addition to windows and gateways, these seven banknotes also depict several bridges. Each bridge has an individual appearance, all of which can be recognised as having originated throughout certain periods in European cultural history.

Designed by Robert Kalina, the bridges are meant to illustrate the tight collaboration and communication between Europe and the rest of the world in general, but more importantly, amongst the European countries in particular.

However, the bridges portrayed in the banknotes are fictional.

They have been designed to prevent one single member state from having a bridge on their banknote opposed to other states not having any depicted in theirs. In other words, “member state neutral” banknotes.

Now wouldn’t it be amazing if these fictional bridges suddenly turn out to actually exist in real life?

A successful global model of integration

BY BEVERLY BEST
@ PECHAKUCHA EVENT AT MSM ON JAN 28, 2016

Speaker Beverly Best discusses the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), a regional body established by the Treaty of Basseterre signed in 1981. It later formed a single financial and economic space (an Economic Union) in June 2000.  Dubbed as one of the biggest global secrets, the OECS comprising 10 Small Island Developing States with a combined population of approximately 600,000 (which are among the smallest SIDS in the world) are at the forefront of regional integration, and represent the tightest regional grouping and most successful global model of integration to date.

We're not exactly sure how Twitpic user 36Point is going about preparing for his PechaKucha presentation, but it apparently involves the help of a few figures, one of which we're pretty sure is Homer Simpson. The caption for the image reads "Preparing my presentation for PechaKucha 7," which we assume is tonight's PKN in Omaha.

Projects Monetization Problems

Yuriy Lozinsky, GOSPay Managing Partner, and Exigen Services Delivery Director, in the spirit of D'Artagnan with a sparkling and subtle humor talked about the problems with projects monetization on PKN Dnipropetrovsk IT::Start-up Vol. 9. The performance was in the spirit of European top management speaches, that are able to make reports simultaneously on a very serious topics and to discuss everyday life topical problems. And that had Yuriy Lozinsky, the word "gamification", "cases", monetization of the office, discussion about relevant advertising was perfectly combined with the Musketeers jokes à la "But, thank God, have friends, And, thank God, the friends have a sword" and "monetization of the project - it's like a corvette - taxi, pass the fare!".

32 Months

“Hitchhiking is defined as travel by getting free lifts in passing vehicles. most people… would describe it as one way of getting yourself killed. I define it as the eye opening experience of seeing kindness in strangers.” In 32 Months from PechaKucha Bandar Seri Begawan’s 6th Volume speaker Finah Yusof, founder of Gypsy Borneo, shares an amazing journey. A two month holiday to drink coffee and meet new friends ended up instead as an explosion of adventures and incredible encounters of human kindness in the span of thirty-two. Full of curiosity and the need to seek, her decision to continue traveling (or, really, hitchhiking) brought her experiences she never thought she would ever see and feel. She learned many things from how people are to how to survive to how to be what we all are… human. Finah urged people to have trust and to drop their fears. To say "Yes" instead of hesitating. To be alive.

In Monkeys Go Green from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 30, Roos Derks shares on her urban gardening projects.
