BY EMMA FULLER

A Goodbye Message from Petz Scholtus

As we mentioned in that previous post about PechaKucha Night in Barcelona Vol. 14, it was the last edition for organizer Petz Scholtus (again, pictured above, in a photo by Benjamin Julve), and she sends in the following goodbye message to the PechaKucha community:I just want to send out a huge thank you to everyone who made PechaKucha Barcelona what it is today. It has been an incredible adventure to set up and run PKN in the Catalan Capital with the support of my friends, the over 170 presenters, fans, and our audience. I had a lot of fun, met amazing people and have seen curious things in the 3 years of PKN BCN. Mark, Astrid, Jean and everyone else at PK headquarters were incredible to work with, as were Sergio Carratalá, Ernest Vidal, Benjamin Julve, Ricardo Ferraz, Aurora Portillo, Aniol Esquerra, Nayely González and Marjolein Hendrix in Barcelona. Together we did over 14 nights since July 2008 when it all started here. Also on board since the beginning was our local beer, Estrella Damm, whose Antigua Fábrica has somewhat become the house of PechaKucha in Barcelona. They say that all good things must end (I am hoping to present my new project to you in a PKN next year) and so I decided to pass on PKN BCN to the hyperactiveee Marc Morro, known as the guy behind Surtido and the Gallery Otras Cosas. I am very pleased to leave it in Marc's hands and am looking forward to the events next year. Fins aviat, Petz Scholtus PS: If you want to stay in touch, please follow me on Twitter, I am @petzdelux

It will also be the first time a PKN in Ekaterinburg is themed, with all presentations tied to art -- below, more details on the event:This time PechaKucha Night Ekaterinburg invites everyone to think about contemporary art during the parallel program of The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary art. We wonder if there is some place for modern art in modern person`s life? You can tell there about your personal experience, projects, interests or ideas in the field of modern art. We try to find the answer if it is necessary to be an artist to make art? Do you make art? Does your art have a target? What do you what from contemporary art as a consumer? How are your projects connected with art? Photos Take a look at last week's PKN Singapore Vol. 5 courtesy of this photo gallery [Facebook]. As organizer Jon Siegel tells us, it was a fantastic event with a great turnout (close to 300) and a terrific lineup of presenters. Above, a look at part of the crowd, and presenter Jon "Yongfook" Cockle.  Calendar We kick off the week with tonight's (September 10) PKN Muscat Vol. 2, and tomorrow you can catch Toronto's Vol. 17.

Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design

"We applied that algorithm [extracted from xylem cell exoskeletons] to design objects at a different scale." From Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design at Brooklyn Vol. 4, David Benjamin, Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life, expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems.
