Meeting Jane

BY MOHAMMED JAMEEL
@ VOL 2 ON APR 19, 2014

Mohammed Jameel shares the story of how he met Jane through the internet. She lives thousands of miles away in a European country and they met through the use of so many online social media tools. Mohammed shows how social media allows people from any part of the world to connect for the first time in human history, but at the same time, meeting face-to-face is still the best way of human communication!


يمكنك لاول مرة بالتاريخ ان تتحدث و تلتقي الناس في اي مكان بالعالم !!.. لم تعد الفوارق الزمنية و المسافات تعني شيئا .. هكذا التقيت جين التي تعيش في بلد يبعد الآف الاميال!.. و لم يكن ذلك ليصبح ممكنا لولا وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي التي استخدمناها جميعا!.. ومع ان كل وسيلة منها اضافت بعدا ما اﻻ اننا في التخير وجدنا أنفسنا مضطرين للقاء في الواقع!.. في حديثي بينت كيف ان وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي امر رائع ومعجز لكن يضل اللقاء البشري المباشر هو الاسمى و ﻻ يحاكيه شيء!

Jangling Space

BY BRIAN MORGAN
@ VOL 31 ON APR 20, 2017

Jangling Space – a space where community meet, talk, imagine, share and DO. The DOING is important – we make tangible products that have meaning. We do it ‘out in the open’ so that people’s curiosity is aroused. These products – made from glass and ceramics – link back to an older Glasgow. We can still see remnants of that time with us today, in stained glass and wally tiles. We seek to find that beauty again. Our products, each and every one, contain a physical aspect of Glasgow. Each product has a story – and so do its makers. We attempt to help people feel like they belong – Jangling Space is a cooperative – and therefore it follows values and principles that cherish learning, cooperation, participation, democracy.

Jane Frederick

PechaKucha Night presentations don't always have to be about one's own works or projects, and here's a perfect example from architect Jane Frederick. She based her PKN Charleston presentation -- for last Wednesday's Vol. 3 -- on buildings and spaces that have "inspired, delighted, and amazed" her. Jane has posted all of her slides on her blog, including descriptions for each. Above, Rem Koolhaas' Prada Soho Store, to which Jane explains: When both of your parents are architects; family vacations always revolve around buildings that must be seen. When I told my youngest daughter, Jessica, about this presentation, she asked “Are you going to include the Prada Store.” Jess…..this one is for you.

Janne Kyttänen

It's Monday, so time to start another round of presentation highlights from the site. Today we look at Janne Kyttänen's "Freedom of Creation" presentation from the recent PechaKucha Night in Amersfoort Vol. 1. It's about his belief in a future where data is the design product, and where products are distributed in the same way images and music travel through the internet today. And how simple it works: 1. Just make a 3D file 2. Email the file to a 3D printer 3. Rroduct ready. It's that simple!
