Mind Playin' Tricks
BY MARC TER HORST

ON NOV 27, 2014
Art Director Marc ter Horst start elk project vanuit een helder gesteld concept. De kracht van zijn werk ligt in het maken van niet direct voor de hand liggende combinaties van thema’s, onderwerpen, symbolen of iconen waardoor nieuwe interessante verbanden en betekenissen ontstaan. In de uitvoering zoekt Marc naar visueel inspirerende oplossingen waarbij inhoud en vorm elkaar versterken. In zijn werk maakt hij geen onderscheid tussen autonome kunst en toegepaste kunst.
Het werk van Marc communiceert op een directe manier met als doel publiek op een nieuwe manier naar bestaande zaken te laten kijken.

Sebastian Alvarez loves animation, and that could help explain how he ended up becoming an animator. He uses this presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 14) to describe the main principles behind animation, and shows how all animated forms (2D, CG) can be used to tell stories in original and creative ways. Posters We found this Facebook gallery of posters for Aalen's past PKNs, and so have added a few of them (the ones we'd never seen before) to our Tumblr blog -- and that's the one for PKN Aalen Vol. 2 you see pictured above.

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

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.
