Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease

BY GARY SCZERBANIEWICZ
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 17, 2015

"I want to destabilize the viewer in relation to the work."

In Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, artist, sculpture, and professor, Gary Sczerbaniewicz's shares his practice involving an insatiable fascination with interior architectural spaces that evoke a sense of psychological unease. This compulsion toward an aesthetics of anxiety leads him to fabricate confined space environments which include-scale shifts-using architectural models seamlessly blended into full–sized structures - into which the viewer is invited to physically enter and explore.

The Myth of Perfection: Tolerance is a Matter of Plus or Minus, Choose Your Degree

BY ALEXANDRA P. SPAULDING
@ VOL 15 ON FEB 04, 2016

"You know there's no such thing as perfection, right?...If you can collectively make the imperfections work, you have perfection."

In The Myth of Perfection (Tolerance is a Matter of Plus or Minus, Choose Your Degree) from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, Buffalo-based artist and engineer Alexandra P. Spaulding reflects on her artistic practice, her love of minimalism, and her eventual acceptance of inevitable imperfections. Examining the notions of tolerance and how exacting to the millionth decimal point does not equal perfection, Spaulding focuses both on the visual arts (Minimalism), her own practice (aurally immersive installation art), engineering and manufacturing, and how the conflux of these three schools of thought have made her more accepting of 'the happy accident' and a better artist.

False Positive

BY MARK SHEPARD
@ VOL 15 ON FEB 04, 2016

"Let's get personal."

In False Positive from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, artist, architect and educator Mark Shepard reminds us that it is not just the trust we place in network infrastructure but also our willingness to trade bits of personal data for access to online services that renders us vulnerable. Caught between the ruse and exploit, we find ourselves subject to ever more sophisticated forms of profiling, both online and off. Yet if algorithmically generated data-bodies are our future, they are also prone to error. Sherpard's project FALSE POSITIVE deploys text messaging, stealth infrastructure, street intervention, and data visualization to enact a surveillance conspiracy engaging the public in an intimate, techno-political conversation with the mobile technologies on which they depend.

Playing with Colour

BY BACKOFFICE (CORYN KEMPSTER & JULIA JAMROZIK)
@ VOL 15 ON FEB 04, 2016

"Colour often comes down to strategically finding the moments that change in a faster time scale." 

In Playing with Colour from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, the artist/designer team of Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster (known as BACKOFFICE) talk about their recent project, LINE GARDEN. In 2014 Jamrozik and Kempster used 500 wooden stakes to weave a mile of colourful plastic barrier tape into an occupiable, abstract field at the International Garden Festival at Reford Gardens/Les Jardins de Métis. They speak about the making of the installation, LINE GARDEN, and it’s adaptation for the 2015 edition of the festival, together with other related projects.

Fabricating History

BY CAITLIN CASS
@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"I make art about ineffectual dreamers who try really hard to succeed at something but always fail miserably."

In Fabricating History from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist and founder of the Great Moments in Western Civilization Cooperative, Caitlin Cass, focuses on the need for diverse sources in creative research, especially when you invent them yourself. She reflects on the subjectivity of history and explains how she co-opts historical authority to create comics and counterfeit historical exhibits. Walking us through her artistic process from the stage of “tadpole” to “strawberry dart frog,” Cass presents highlights of her recent comic book an counterfeit historical exhibits, such as “Folktales of American History” and “The Museum of Failure.”

Ceramic Assemblies

BY LIMINAL PROJECTS (OMAR KAHN AND LAURA GARÓFALO)
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives."

In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred

BY DANA MCKNIGHT
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Number 1. Be an ornery artist. You're mad. You went to art school. You go to shows in basements and living rooms. You are the poster child of the scurvy-laced bohemia. Your parents can't pay your rent."

In The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, artist and founder of Dreamland Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, Dana Mcknight, illustrates twenty steps to carving out a cutting-edge, artist-run space outside of the dominant, institutional realm. Mcknight cautions, "To be an institution is to own-- ­­­to place value on possession rather than action. To fixate on conservative contentment rather than Hope and Possibility. Artist-led spaces fizzle out all the time. Let us not leave behind the phoenix eggs to merely touch a tusk in the Elephant graveyard."

Collage City

BY JEAN-MICHEL REED
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people."

In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape.

Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority

BY PAUL VANOUSE
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

“I’m a bio media artist. And what that means is I work self-reflexively, with the tools and technologies of the life sciences.” 

In Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Professor of Art at the University at Buffalo, Paul Vanouse, provides an overview of his work as a bio media artist. As Director of the newly created Coalesce Center for Biological Art at the University at Buffalo, Vanouse works with artists and philosophers and people who wouldn’t normally have a direct connection to do create work in a life sciences laboratory, and is actively engaged with Coalesce’s artist residency program. Vanouse’s own work has recently focused on DNA fingerprinting, removing the inherent layers of authority from DNA with an interest in the very visual representation of DNA. His recent projects, Latent Figure Protocol and Ocular Revision use molecular biology techniques to challenge “genome-hype” and to confront issues surrounding DNA fingerprinting.

Inspirational Coincidences

BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

PechaKucha Night Kuching Vol.2

Kuching is a little city on the island of Borneo where Art is a small but growing industry. Hence, we were pleasantly surprised that the first PechaKucha Night Kuching of 2016 that we organized last month on the 1st April 2016 was a huge success!! Look at the amount of people that filled up the Granary Bar + Kitchen that night! We had 10 presenters in different creative industries talking about how they found their passions and how they are pursuing it. Do watch them on our city's page! They range from photographers, collectors, painters, designers and so on. The next PKN is scheduled on 1st July 2016, Friday 8.20pm. We're looking at a better, bigger and equally as inspiring / entertaining night. more pictures can be found HERE. :D  Till next time! Take care!
