Books in the Age of the iPad

BY CRAIG MOD
@ VOL 68 ON JAN 27, 2010

Print is dying. Digital is surging. Everyone is confused. GOOD RIDDANCE. As the publishing industry wobbles and Kindle sales jump, book romanticists cry themselves to sleep. But really, what are we shedding tears over? This presentation is in JAPANESE, but head over here to read Craig Mod's amazing blog post about it.

Reconnecting to the Universe

BY KINGA KIELCZYNSKA
@ VOL 16 ON DEC 15, 2009

Kinga Kielczynska disguises her sculptures, graphic and performance art as a talk about "a secret cult, that is trying to reconnect to the universe". Having lost the togetherness of man and nature, Kinga travels to energetic locations with other "cult members" to perform rites and exercises to be one with nature. The fact that they steal a lamp from the hotel lobby to channel the sun's energy seems natural. Sensual, profound and ... funny!

Altering Skins - Surface to Form

BY ROBERT OPPECKER
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 09, 2013

There are 3 generations of artists in Robert Oppecker's family. His father was a prolific abstract artist in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Robert is a scupltor and silversmith. And his son is studying graphic design at VCU. Robert's own work focuses on form, line, and volume, but because of the silver medium he does not get to do much with color on the surface. To capture this "intergenerational energy", Robert, along with the help of his son, Michael, explore ways to meld the surface treatments with the scupltural expressions.

Crescere Con L’Architettura

BY NEOSTUDIO | ELEONORA BURLANDO, RICCARDO MISELLI
@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Nowadays it is interesting to reflect about the importance of the manual skill in the architectural practice. It is a needed task and a challenge to tackle: it deals with the future of architecture, with his civic role and with the possibility that technical knowledges could be still transmitted and spread in useful ways for our time. Showing you the Swiss program held by i2a “Crescere con  l’architettura” it is a way to purpose you a talk about the effectiveness of a learning and working model which embeds the practical and manual behaviours. “Crescere con l’architettura” wants to show the potential of a learning model which shares the learning by doing principle: a learning method which shows the emerging
need of a practical volountee especially in the architectural subject, in order to reconsider the original role of our subject, so far from reality and real objects.

Letizia Carini, 27 years old from Milano. Master of Science in Urban Planning and Policy Design at the Politecnico di Milano in 2013. She is really interested in educational and pedagogical studies related to architecture. Her Master Thesis is about the relation between knowledge and doing where she investigates the importance of practice, manual skills and technical knowledge in architecture.


Silvia Ducart, from Cordoba (Argentina). Graduated in architecture at the FAU UNC of Cordoba, she moved to Switzerland in 1992. She worked as architect, graphic designer and illustrator and she also took part to research project about space, the importance of playing in childhood and handicap deseases. In 2001 she started working as an independent architect and collaborating with other studios in Ticino and in Zurich. In 2011 she started her experience with “Crescere con
l’architettura”, giving to the project a big contribute.

Munch Before Munch

BY GIORGIA MARRAS
@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Published by the new bornly Tuss Publishing, Munch before Munch is the first graphic novel written and drawn by Giorgia Marras. The story is about the less-known life of the famous Norwegian painter, during the critical period of education and training. It's an illustrated journey to the discovery of the less-known Norwegian painter Edvard, young and fragile, which the echo of his masterpiece has partially hide. It's the story of objects, places and people that inhabited his emotions. Munch before Munch shows one of the most important painters in the history of art but without any temptation of an easy-mythological portrait.
Edvard is a young man like all of us, looking for his place in the world, similar to us in his human desire of being approved and accepted. Munch Before Munch is available on www.tuss.it

A French Magazine About Graphic Design and Painted Fantasy Worlds

Presentations Alexandre Dimos is a French graphic designer, and in his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) he talks about Back Cover. As he explains, he couldn't find what he really wanted to read in France, and so he helped create an independant magazine focusing on thinking and analyzing graphic design and typographic practices, and to a larger extent, visual arts. Miro Pecho is a Slovak painter, and he uses his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1) to explain how different fantasy worlds influence his paintings. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Malaga Vol. 3, pictured above (the event was held last night). The other addition is for PKN New Orleans Vol. 7, which is happening tomorrow night.  The image below is not a poster or a flyer, but rather part of a call for presenters for the next PKN in Genoa (or Genova), and we loved it so much we wanted to share it. All roads lead to PechaKucha! The event itself will take place on November 23. Calendar There are two PKNs on the agenda tonight (October 3), PKN Bilbao Vol. 13 and PKN Szczecin Vol. 1. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday: PKN Pittsburgh Vol. 13, PKN Moncton Vol. 7, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 6, PKN Doha Vol. 6, PKN Vaxjo Vol. 12, PKN Kolding Vol. 18, and PKN New Orleans Vol. 7.

Design Conspiracy

They lurk near cracks on the sidewalk. You duck under them while passing under a low doorway. They keep you from your destination. They're everywhere. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Design Conspiracy" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93, graphic designer Joachim Müller Lancé takes us down the rabbit hole in exposing a cabal so covert that it hides in plain sight: this is the caution stripe conspiracy.

Design Diversity - Powered by PechaKucha

  We hope that you were able to make it out to PechaKucha Night Cleveland - Volume 21, which took place last Friday evening at the citadel of free speech, The City Club of Cleveland. It was a yet another truly magical evening here in Cleveland listening to amazing, creative and inspiring stories. As many have noticed, space was fairly limited at about 450 people, and we needed to distribute tickets via our Facebook page(still FREE:) to make sure we did not take the venue beyond their capacity. If you were not able to make it out, have no fear, we video taped the entire evening and are planning on posting those presentations as soon as we can process them. A special thanks goes out to Dan Moulthrop, Carrie Miller and everyone at The City Club of Cleveland for making that such an amazing partnership and evening. We are looking forward to partnering with them on many events in the future. Also, if you did not have a chance to make it out, or you did and just can't get enough inspiration, you have another opportunity TONIGHT to be inspired. The event titled "DesignDiversity - Powered by PechaKucha" takes place at Take 5 in downtown Cleveland. The event doors open with a Happy Hour from 7-8pm and the presentations will start at 8pm. The presenter list is pretty amazing and features 5 African American creative professions and will be emcee'd by Jennifer Coleman. Presenters include: Terran Washington Designer, Little Jacket Michele Crawford Intern Architect, Robert P. Madison International Jason Russell City Planner, City of Lakewood Diane Davis-Sikora Associate Professor, Kent State University College of Architecture & Environmental Design Arlene Watson Principal and Creative Director, Möbius Grey LLC Event Details: https://www.facebook.com/events/410030872466336/ We hope you can make it out to the first "Powered by PechaKucha" event in downtown Cleveland. We are going to be working hard throughout 2014 to not only bring you GREAT PechaKucha Night events, but we are going to be aggressively working with various organizations to fill the calendar with Powered by PechaKucha opportunities in between. What is "Powered by PechaKucha" you ask? Powered X PKN events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, but still utilize the 20 images x 20 seconds format. The events will be completely organized by other organizations and oftentimes have very different focuses, but PKNCLE is going to do what it can to support each event it can to help everyone tell their creative stories. If you are interested in hosting a "Powered by PechaKucha" event, please email us at pkncleveland@gmail.com and we will definitely reach out to talk about the process. Cheers to an amazing, inspiring and creativity filled 2014! -PKN Cleveland Creative Team Michael Christoff Raseem Parker Aseem Garg Emily Bacha Trent Boerner Heather Lenz David Purpera
