BY JACKY CHENG

ON JUL 07, 2015
"When the eyes temporarily refuse to collaborate with the brain, it usually causes a beautiful paradox."
In "A Paper Tale" from PechaKucha Night Broome, Vol. 3, paper artist Jackie Cheng's works speak for themselves. Grounded in a traditional life, she humbly downplays her mesmerisingly imaginative and intricate paper art, sharing how it is a process of simplicity and quiet reflection. Enjoy!

Wolfgang Schwarzmann ist Architekt. Seit seiner Bachelorarbeit ist er bereits auf der Suche nach wahrer Schönheit. Für ihn gibt es nichts Schönes, das nicht auch etwas Unschönes an sich hat. Dieser Kontrast, dieses Spannungsfeld fasziniert ihn. Auf der Suche nach einem banalen, neutralen Ding, welches nicht den Anspruch auf Schönheit hat, ist er auf den Kieselstein gestoßen. Er sammelte, sortierte, vermaß, zeichnete, baute, spiegelte sie... Seht selbst!

Form Follows Beauty
Picture yourself relaxing on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, sipping coconut juice, all the while taking time to enjoy the simple, fluid contours of the waves and mountains. Are you getting it? Well, architect and co-host to PKN Chicago Peter Exley is living it. In this edition of "Presentation of the Day", Exley speaks of the "free and sensual curves" he illustrates on his iPhone while out and about. He demonstrates the importance of recognizing the meandering lines found in nature, and shows how some architects (like the recently passed Oscar Niemeyer) translate these lines into their work. You'll find, as he says, "form doesn't follow function, form follows beauty".
The Beauty of the Derelict
In today's Presentation of the Day, "The Beauty of the Derelict" from PKN New Westminster Vol. 1, Eric Pattison examines the beauty that can be found in derelict and abandoned buildings, from well-preserved wallpapers and decorations from decades past, to degraded metals and woods, and the environment they can create. He talks about the restoration process, and some of the discoveries he has made along the way.
A Beautiful Reality
"People rarely, if ever, made it into my images -- and when they did, it was a depiction of what they did, and never really a depiction of how they felt to me." Originally a travel photographer, Ralph Hassenpflug has changed his creative approach and now enjoys photographing people and the aspects of them that are disconnected from their "public selves." In the fascinating "A Beautiful Reality" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 18, Ralph describes the primitivistic approach to his art: he does not think his pictures - he feels them.

The Profound Beauty of Indigo
"The choice to plant, transplant, weed, harvest, winnow, dry, compost, and ferment indigo entirely by hand is longer one of necessity. It is political. It is beautiful. It is labour. It is life." In The Profound Beauty of Indigo from Chicago's Powered by PechaKucha Event: United States Artists 2014 Artists Assembly, Ronald Ricketts shares his story of moving to Japan to teach English and explore Japanese craft heritage. He discovered indigo leaves and had an apprenticeship at a Tokushima dye factory. He became an indigo farmer, dyer and visual artist. His work developed into creating installations, establishing a social practice and spreading the indigo art.

"Photography gives me a medium to escape from daily routine life by creating something beautiful" In Extreme Beauty from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 137, Fashion photographer Apple Chua shares in depth how she turned her passion into her career.

That certain elusive quality became her signature style.
