Szofita

Organizer Attila Bujdoso sends in this great look at the presentation from Hungarian designer Szofita, from last month's PechaKucha Night in Budapest Vol. 15. At our Vol.15 event in Budapest we had a great international line-up in front of 450 people! One of the best presentations was definitely given by a young female designer Szofita from Hungary. She is still a student but already has a great work portfolio. It was really impressive to see the great diversity of her works including animation graphics, fashion design and graphic design. She introduced her collection of rings -- each of them incorporates a tiny little world. All rings are unique and are both designed and manufactured by her. At the end of her PechaKucha presentation she showed animation work she did in collaboration with Emil Goodman and Menzkie. The motion graphincs were commissioned by Music Television Hungary and later also shown on MTV UK. Take a look, I bet it is worth it. Below, more images from Szofita's presentation.

Please note that the next PKN in Barcelona (Vol. 14) is already set for November 25.The 13th night in Barcelona was a great success with plenty of postitive energy, very diverse topics and nice cold beer. We had Ferran presenting a mobile home theatre, Jordi showed his work with Gaudí on the lighting of the Sagrada Familia, and Michelle did roller dancing on the stage! Karolina showed us the behind the scenes of her animation Migrópolis and painter Jonathan Dalton told little love stories. Jon explained why ecodesign isn't about being sexy, Ben, or Detective Serio, took us time travelling through Barcelona and the design duo Compeixalaigua told both lies and the truth. Lluís showed surprising coincidences of strangely similar design projects, Guim explained why he loves petrol (inside the earth, not used!), Valentina shared tips of how to live with only 33 pieces of clothes every 3 months and Roger showed the beautiful art work that him and Gerard make nature do.

Learning About Animation, Kyiv's Iconic Architecture, and "Hearting" Parks in San Diego

Presentations Daniel Muñóz is a character animator, and in this presentation from PKN Miami Vol. 14 he explains the main principles and techniques required to produce animation work that manages to suck viewers in. Oleg Zhary is a photographer who lives and works in Kyiv, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7), he gives us all a stunning photographic tour of the capital of Ukraine through its iconic objects. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster above, for the upcoming PKN San Diego Vol. 15. Here's more from PKN San Diego organizer Leslee Schaffer on the poster, as well as the event itself:We are holding #15 at a venue in which we are hosting an exhibit for the next two weeks, called Orchids, Onions & Opportunities, an offshoot of our Orchids & Onions program. The exhibit strives to accomplish a lot of things; mostly, true to the mission of SDAF (and why PKN is such a great fit for SDAF) to raise awareness and encourage practical discourse about matters relative to our build environment. It’s focus is on San Diego’s civic spaces, and lack thereof. We usually don’t theme our PKNs, having found that an organically curated event keeps things interesting and works quite well for us. This time, because of the exhibit, and other complementary events we decided to offer Making the Case for Public Space as a theme, and keep it interesting by presenting a range of perspectives on the matter. As fro the event flyer, we are blessed with the support of someone we believe to be one of the most inspired artists/designers ever here in San Diego. Her name is Terri Beth Mitchell. You have already posted a couple of her PKN SD flyers on your site, and we thought this one deserved special attention. Photos We have a couple of photo galleries to share with you today.

Lucid dreaming, intuition, augmented reality and satelitelaunching all at Aalborg #12

90 people attending in an attentive atmosphere and opened by 3D graphic Benny Mathiesen. This time he shared his thoughts, experiences and knowledge of lucid dreaming - fascinating and fun - so everybodys attension was caught. Bo Nicolaisen from Platform 4 talked of a collaboration between thr art & tech people in Aalborg, one of the worlds best animation schools situated in Viborg and Filmværkstedet in Århus - the Bemudacollaboration give artists opportunities to benefit from workshops, knowledge and projects from all tree places. Sandro Masai is both dancer, choreographer and educated from Aalborg University in art & technology. He's making an art project based on augmented reality - at a summer art event in july called Bunkerlove at Denmarks large west coast beaches, where bunkers from 2. worldwar still lie in the sand. Before the break Ellen Raunsmed is researching in intuition at the university and shared her knowledge and experiences from seminars held together with artists, philosophers and dancers. The break kept people chit-chatting and networking - among a bunch of cool women in rollerskates from Aalborg Rollerderby - and bly me it's like rugby ON ROLLERSKATES for women!!! The first slot after the break was taken by artist and a men who pocesses imense knowledge art critic Gorm Spaabæk. He is the man behind a project where Nordjyske - the local paper - hires artists to create i piece FOR the paper inspired by local stories from the area. Lars Ditlev Johansen is educated actor an directs a piece called "A walk in the dark" about meeting life and death - and the theaterpiece will also be part of Bunkerlove inviting the audience onto the beach at night and into the bunkers. He read beautiful pieces of the drama - for me a very moving moment. And then came the complete fun - in the name of PechaKucha variaty in content - there came a whole team of Rollerderbygirls presenting their passion for the game! Brilliant pianist and composer - art & technology student Dominik Blasko finished the evening both talking about composing, making different art installations AND playing one of his pieces - a beautiful dot to a wonderful evening. See you in september :-)
