Ephémera: Colei che Vive un Solo Giorno

BY AQUA AURA
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

EPHEMERA: the one that lives one day only" currently at VISIONQUEST Contemporary Photography in Genoa,  created by the AQUA AURA. The Ephemera is an insect that lives only one day, its life takes place in just 24 hours, going through all stages and completing this journey in a very short amount of time. The name in English Ephemeral, in common language stands for something temporary and evanescent. Aqua Aura shows, with some of the works in the exhibition and the impermanent installationt that accompanies tise exhibition, his personal interpretation of the contemporary world, both from the sociological and more specifically poetic point of views.  An exhibition in which the sense of time - and the actual viewing experience - is intertwined and it is based on two extremes; a state of absolute insecurity on one side and the aspiration to a  methaphysical eternity on the other.

Shaping Space and Realities

BY LAUREN SLOWIK
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

Realizing Good Ideas

BY CHRISTOPHER SIANO
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 17, 2015

"It's not enough to have a good idea. To realize that good idea is very difficult, and that's what I work hard to do".

For the past twelve years he has served as an Instructional Support Technician in the University at Buffalo Department of Art. In 2005 he formed The Foundry Group Inc. - a company specializing in art and architectural fabrication. And in 2012, in partnership with his brother Matthew, he formed HES Properties - a real estate development company focusing on development of mixed-use properties on Buffalo's West Side. All of these endevours are conduits for great ideas in his community to come to fruition.

The Grand Flat Piano

Some great news for the duo of Olle Bjekas and Jon Wingborg -- their project entitled "The Grand Flat Piano," which was presented at PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg Vol. 18, will be one of this year's "Honorarium Art Installations" at the Burning Man festival. As PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson tells us, "every year Burning Man allocates a percentage of its revenue from ticket sales to funding select art projects that are collaborative, community-oriented and interactive." Here's a description of the project, taken from the official Burning Man announcement. The Grand Flat Piano is a 20 meter long flat piano. It has 45 keys in 9 octaves C#. The keys are connected to several synthesizers. The Grand Flat Piano is played by burners so just come out at the playa and play on the largest piano you have ever seen. If you want a whole jam session just bring your own instruments and jam along the piano.

Just Don't Do It

In today's "Presentation of the Day" we hear from David Pollard: a builder. He has always been motivated utilize the "power of the human hand", but when others told him he was "too intelligent to be a builder" he didn't listen. It's best that he didnt.  In his presentation from PKN Tokyo Vol. 83, he speaks on the importance of following our joys, as opposed to following those who think they know what's best for you. In Tokyo, he's built natural, organic installations --to great effect-- despite city official's requests that he abstain. The moral of the story is: do what you love and people will notice.

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.
