Die Poesie des Erweiterten Raumes
BY UWE BRÜCKNER
@ VOL 21
ON APR 14, 2012
A room is defined by its demarcations, the exclusion from its environment, the limitation of the room for manoeuvre and the space for thought, its volume, its dimensions, its room shell and its haptic materials, its lightning and its acoustic and narrative potential. The expandable room is a vision of a room, “which casts its shadows into the future” and – metaphorically speaking – creates shadows of the room. By the use of projected film, a virtual expansion and transformation is possible; the perception of room or spatial dimensions is not limited through physical borders anymore but solely dependent on the imaginative potential.
The associated, the imagined and poetical room takes the real room’s place. (in German)
Ein Raum wird bestimmt durch seine Umgrenzung, die Ausgrenzung des Umfeldes, die Eingrenzung des Handlungs-, Denk- und Spielraumes, sein Volumen, seine Dimension, seine Raumhülle und ihre haptische Materialität, seine Beleuchtung und sein akkustisches und narratives Potential. Der erweiterte Raum ist eine Vision von Raum, "der seinen Schatten voraus wirft" und Raumschatten im metaphorischen Sinn kreiert. Durch den Einsatz von projeziertem Film ist eine virtuelle Erweiterung und Verwandlung des Raumes möglich; die Wahrnehmung von Raum oder der Raumdimensionen ist nicht mehr durch die physischen Grenzen limitiert sondern allein vom Imaginationspotential abhängig. An die Stelle des realen Raumes tritt der assoziierte, der imaginierte, tritt der Poetische Raum.

BY SAGAR SAWANT
@ VOL 1
ON OCT 24, 2013
How much did your medical procedure cost? How much should it have cost? Where is the kayak.com for doctors? In this presentation Sagar Sawant shows us just how much the cost for procedures can vary. A hip replacement surgery in Ada, Oklahoma will cost $5,300 while the same procedure in California will cost $223,000. Sagar hopes to help make people more knowledgable about their choices so that medical costs will go down and care quality will go up.

Carte di famiglia
BY VALENTINA FENOGLIO
@ VOL 9
ON JUN 05, 2014
I want to realize some picture-postcards that show “historical” family scenes.
These drows are made on tellings and descriptions of caracters and environment, so them are personalized for a single family. As if we look at an old photo album, we could have a memory sketch album.
I work as architect in Genova.
In 2011 founded the graphic and photo project RetròScatto.
From 2006 since 2013 I have joined and worked with Linkinart, group founded with other architects.
I have attended at some art exhibitions and realized illustration for publishing and music cd.
I Vestiti Nuovi di H.C.
BY MATILDE MARTINELLI
@ VOL 9
ON JUN 05, 2014
Matilde Martinelli goes into depth on how I NUOVI VESTITI DI H.C. represents the willingness to establish a link between two of the most powerful means of expression turned to the world of childhood: the fairy tale (written or simply transmitted orally ) which refers to the Prize for unpublished fairy tales H.C. Andersen, and the illustration, which is not meant as a didactic translation of a text, but as an element that enriches a narrative of new meanings.
In an effort to introduce in the festival an aspect strongly connected to the field of illustration, some of the artists in the exhibition will take part in a live drawing performance. This event will take place on the occasion of the proclamation of the fairy tales Prize winners, constituting a visual counterpoint that will come back to introduce itself during the days of the event by conducting many workshops aimed at the children illustration. The group of illustrators operates under the name of UVASPINA, a newborn identity attributed to an open collective, which is active only during the days of the Festival.
Coderdojo: La Palestra di Programmazione
BY FRANCESCO BOANO
@ VOL 9
ON JUN 05, 2014
Francesco Boano talks about CoderDojo is a global network of clubs that teach young people in areas specializing in computer programming and computer technology. There are now clubs in 22 countries, teaching 10,000 children to write computer code and programs each week.
Founded CoderDojo in 2011 as a not-for-profit organisation that teaches children how to code. It aims to teach them creative problem-solving skills and practical creative skills and was launched in Ireland in mid-2011. The first CoderDojo took place on 23 July 2011 in the National Software Centre in Cork.
The initiative arrived in Genoa this year, with the opening of the first “dojo” at Talent Garden Genova.

Happy Soil Project
It starts from a simple idea: taking a child's drawing of a house, and then actually building it using branches. David Pollard first initiated the project in Birmingham, England, where the structure was brought into the city center to amazing effect. Wanting to spread the idea to other places in the world, the next stop was Tachikawa in Tokyo, where he would try to recreate the experiment, this time converting an unused -- yet yakuza-owned -- piece of land. With the help of architecture students -- who had to take time to "rediscover" the simple act of building -- the installation was a success. It later turned into an art installation, eventually included as part of the Tokujin Yoshioka-curated "Second Nature" exhibition at 21_21 Design Sight in Roppongi, which was also accompanied by a children's workshop. David Pollard and Tomonari Waku presented the project at Pecha Kucha Night in Tokyo (Vol. 58), where they also expanded on other similar DIY experiments and installations.
Arabeschi di Latte
Today's presentation also comes from last week's special Tokyo Design Week edition of PechaKucha Night in Tokyo (Vol. 66), and features the amazing food-related projects of the Italian team Arabeschi di Latte. Francesca Sarti presented the work of collaorators Silvia Allori, Alessandra Foschi, Francesca Pazzagli who make up the food design team Arabeschi di Latte. The group’s purpose is to experiment with a new design concept focusing on food fascination and the power of food in creating situations and relationships.

Painting with Light
Light painting isn't a new art form by any stretch, but recently it's been revitalized and enhanced by the DIY community. In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, we see the extent to which the medium has grown. In his presentation (from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10) Mateusz Staniewski enlightens us on the finer details of the photographic art. The techniques he goes into include light-stenciling, freezing, and painting; when combining these methods the results are both literally and figuratively luminous. There's much more to be seen than said here, so for further illumination check out the full presentation.

Why I couldn't let PKN_COV die
There's been a lot of sad tweets recently about horrific things happening in our world, and Pecha Kucha has been one of the little ways I've used to remind myself the world is still goodish. So, when Janet tweeted that the most recent PK might have to be the last in Coventry I DM'd straight to action. I barely have anything to do in my spare time (apart from help run Big Comfy Sessions and host/promote gigs across the city ;o) so a DM to Janet asking if any additional help would keep PK alive. Luckily I wasn't the only one to offer help so it didn't take long for a new PK Coventry organising committee to be formed. Janet is and always will be our Queen but she now has several court jesters in the form of myself (@mr_spoon), Dom Breadmore (@predacomDom) and Ross Fisher. Our job is to help Janet book presenters, and basically anything else she needs. But it's the presenter line-up that I expect takes the longest time, without presenters we'd either have no PK in Cov or we'd have to sit through yet another Mark Hancock presentation and no-one wants that. I know how hard it is to persuade people to expose themselves for 6 minutes and 40 seconds as I hold the award for second longest to take up the challenge. Despite my fetish for organising gigs and gatherings I don't like being the centre of attention, and PK is a special kind of attention. I never felt I had a right to be on stage alongside creatives, artists, eloquent presenters and inspirational geeks. However after a few PKs I started to see more 'normals' drift onto the stage. Some of the best presentations I've seen have been about the mundanity of shopping, favourite books and a Wi-Fi rabbit. Hang on a second, I thought...I STILL don't want to do this...but I can bully others into volunteering. I'm glad I finally popped my PK cherry during the most attended one ever (d'oh) hosted by Ludic Rooms...it is very much like giving birth (I know, I've suffered through two of them ;o), in that I didn't enjoy the experience but I have a happy heart and badge of honour after doing it. PK in Coventry is a wonderful pot pourri of an evening, with squishy settees, that unmistakable Tin fragrance, laughter and friends...and let's not deny, a cheap night of entertainment and inspiration. You can't argue with that. I hope that by helping keep Pecha Kucha going in Coventry that more people get the chance to experience that awkwardness of a confusing, badly timed, strange, fumbled presentation and maybe even get drunk enough to volunteer for the next one. I've already used my 'power' to sign up two frolleagues and a handful of new audience members that think it sounds fun. So right they are! See you in December!!
