A GARA COL TEMPO SENZA OROLOGIO – La Percezione del Tempo Negli Animali e Bambini.

BY EVELINA ISOLA
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

This project have been presented to the 12th edition of Genoa Science Festival, as a playful lab for kids. Do animals have perception of the time? According to some scientists, only humans have a real memory, while the other animals have a perception of the time limited or episodic. A different perception of time can have different utilities according to escape strategy, communication or feeding. Time and its perception are not relative only on physics books! This happens in a lot of very small animals, for example the flies that perceive the world with a slow motion effect.

In other species the perception of time is connected to their movement in the space, as in case of dolphin and bats biosonar. Children are conducted in a fascinating “time travel” in their time perceptions, from the perception that themselves have, to try out what other animals fell of time, according to the different utility in the survival strategies.

Ephémera: Colei che Vive un Solo Giorno

BY AQUA AURA
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

EPHEMERA: the one that lives one day only" currently at VISIONQUEST Contemporary Photography in Genoa,  created by the AQUA AURA. The Ephemera is an insect that lives only one day, its life takes place in just 24 hours, going through all stages and completing this journey in a very short amount of time. The name in English Ephemeral, in common language stands for something temporary and evanescent. Aqua Aura shows, with some of the works in the exhibition and the impermanent installationt that accompanies tise exhibition, his personal interpretation of the contemporary world, both from the sociological and more specifically poetic point of views.  An exhibition in which the sense of time - and the actual viewing experience - is intertwined and it is based on two extremes; a state of absolute insecurity on one side and the aspiration to a  methaphysical eternity on the other.

Artist and Filmmaker Don Levy

BY ALEXANDER STOREY GORDON
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Alexander Storey Gordon is a curator, artist and writer currently based in Fife and Glasgow. Sitting productively between these roles Storey Gordon curates and makes film, text, performances and events that focus on how the relationship between our bodies, our built environment, and others is mediated through contemporary art, film and literature. In his curatorial, art and written work this is achieved through a rigorous experimentation with the structures, codes, and conventions that govern and channel our reading of experience, time and event.

For GI Pecha Kucha, Storey Gordon will give a presentation on the artist and filmmaker Don Levy and the exhibition Don Levy: Time Regained, presented by Storey Gordon at SWG3 as part of GI 2016. Touching on wider themes of time, edit and the problem of the archive, the presentation will collage together different materials from exhibition research.

PKN in The Japan Times

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhIsMkA0IXU PechaKucha Night gets a nice write-up in today's edition of The Japan Times. The piece includes comments from a few of the presenters at last month's edition (Vol. 59), with the online version also including a short video compilation of that night's presentations. This is as good a place as any to remind everyone that the PKN Tokyo mothership celebrates Vol. 60 tomorrow night -- it should be a blast!

Timing It in Singapore

PechaKucha Night has unfortunately been missing from Singapore for a few years now, but we just found this photo on Flickr taken at the city's Vol. 2 back in 2008 -- by Flickr user recyclofashion -- and it looks like they took the 20 seconds very seriously, going so far as to adding a giant timer on the stage to remind the presenters and audience alike how much time they had left.

Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, for PKN Hong Kong Vol. 13 (pictured above) and PKN New Haven Vol. 14.

Time and Interaction

What if the game you were playing lasted longer than you could live? In "Time and Interaction" from PKN Valletta Vol. 3, video game maker, critic, and professor Pippin Barr speaks on the interactive medium of games, and how the concept of time is exhibited within the medium. From games where you must complete a number frenetic tasks lest your character die, to those where your character is sentenced to 100 real-life years in prison (i.e. we will never live to see what happens at the end of his sentence), Pippin demonstrates the power interactivity can have over our thoughts on time.

In Lions, Tigers and Binturongs, Oh My! from Accident Vol. 3, former zoo docent, Devon Sponheimer, shares her love for animals in this offbeat presentation about her journeys around the world interacting with all sorts or species! Have a listen and find out some interesting animal facts such as why Binturongs smell like popcorn, or which gender of the platypus is venomous.
