20 Months

BY ANTONINA SIMETI
@ VOL 15 ON FEB 04, 2016

"As newcomers in a city we should step back, clear our minds and look for clues. What do we see? What can't we see?"

In 20 Months from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, urbanist Antonina Simeti reads excerpts from her diary of experiences and perspectives drawn from the past 20 months living in Amsterdam, Berlin and Buffalo. Through everyday observations of the physical realm, Antonina tries to uncover and understand how cultural, political and economic values and systems are expressed in our cities.

How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature

BY NICHOLAS RAJKOVICH
@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"How do we start thinking about heat waves and why are heat waves so important?"

In How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, architect and University at Buffalo Professor, Nicholas B. Rajkovich describes the design of a bicycle-based weather station used to find the “hot spots” of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Every year in the United States, more people die from heat waves than any other type of natural disaster. Extreme heat events are expected to increase in the future due to climate change. Collecting a fine scale of microclimatic data can help to determine how physical characteristics contribute to human exposure to ground and air temperatures. These data also suggest how urban design strategies can reduce the impacts of the urban heat island effect. However, microclimate measurement poses substantial challenges. Rajkovich’s work investigates the intersection of energy efficient buildings, renewable energy, and climate change resilience.

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.

BY JAMES SMAGALA

The rise of agrarian society, the understanding of water chemistry, and the search for food preservation techniques for shipping will culminate in the first genomic sequence of eukaryotic cells, models for cancer and heart disease and a myriad of delicious malted beverages.

Deanne the Hooper

Not only did Tokyo-based "hooper" Deanne introduce the art of hooping -- that's right folks, it's no longer about the "hula" anymore -- to a captivated crowd at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 61, she capped her presentation with a brilliant display of her art for the audience. If you're new to hooping, than you'll find out all you need to know from Deanne's Hooplovers website -- she gives classes on top of performing regularly. For those in attendance, we were treated to a very clear approach to the topic: the presentation was built as a series of answers to FAQs. The photos of Deanne's performance come courtesy of Masao Tamaoki.

Holy Toledo!

PechaKucha Toledo, Ohio Vol. 4 is coming up on February 22. PKN Toledo was recently featured in the Toledo Free Press; artist and organizer Kimberly Adams was quoted:  The presenters that we have are invested in our community in some form or another and are doing great things. It’s always exciting to see PKN come together. So many people within our community are not aware of their surroundings and everything that is going on. I think most people in attendance are surprised and pleased to hear about all the positives that are happening in Toledo. Read the full article here.

Hopera

Mirella Amato is a certified cicerone (the beer equivalent of a sommelier) and has a storied past as an opera singer as well. One might not see much of a connection between these two fields, but in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17), Mirella has these two worlds collide for her special beer and opera event: Hopera!

To Feel at Home

Most of us can say with certainty that our idea of home is tied to a specific location. Can you? Roshi Givechi spent much of her youth on the move -- even now, she travels about Asia for work; never truly settling on any one place -- and in "To Feel at Home", today's Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 104) she defines the elements, experiences, rituals that as a whole form her amoebic idea of this concept we hold so dear.

“Home is not the place you’re born, home is the place you become yourself.” Tamim Al-Kadasi speaks on his conceptual definition of home. In “HOME” from PKN Sana’a Vol. 3 he shows us that where you come from is less important than where you’re going.

Hands with Hope

“There are stories after stories of young children who are already missing permanent teeth because their moms had pulled them because the excruciating pain was too much to bear. ” Restless in her day-to-day profession of dental hygienist, Annie Nardone found a way to create more meaningful work for herself while still using her expertise in dentistry. In PechaKucha Night Batavia’s 1st volume, she discusses how she created Hands with Hope, a not-for-profit foundation, to deliver training, dental treatment, equipment, and supplies to impoverished communities in Central America. Currently, Hands with Hope maintains and supports three fully functioning dental clinics in Honduras and Guatemala, which are run and operated by locally trained individuals eager to serve their communities.
