Intelligent Life on PKN
The Economist's sister magazine, Intelligent Life, gives PechaKucha Night some love on its blog this week. The piece focuses on the most recent edition of PKN Atlanta, which the writer describes as the "love-child of a French Salon and a stockholders meeting." Sure, why not?
No PechaKucha, No Life!
PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 65 -- yes, 65 already -- was held last night, and until we get all our photos back and can put together a nice event review, here's a shot we found online taken by Ayako Goto with a very darkened look at just one of the images that was shown throughout the evening (that particular image was part of game designer James Everett's presentation). Ayako's comment to the photo is rather nice too: "No PechaKucha, No Life! Be Creative!!"
The Secret Life of Cones
Today's presentation comes from our favorite "repeat" presenter -- an amazing 8th showing! San Francisco-based designer Joachim Müller-Lancé -- we shared his presentation on tape in Japanese urban settings earlier this year -- takes us on a tour of the secret life of cones. And you thought they were 'just' cones, well think again. Joachim was in Tokyo for Design Week but normally resides in San Francisco where he runs Kame Design.
A Life as a Luthier
Let Anton Varela guide through "A Life as a Luthier," a presentation given at last July's PechaKucha Night in Ferrol Vol. 2. The presentation is in Galician, but the images alone do tell a great tale.
Water for Life
We're going to end this week's postings on the blog with two new presentations on the site, both recorded at PechaKucha Night in London Vol. 4. First up is Simon Taylor and his presentation that covers the exhibition he designed for the "Water for Life" project, in the building you see pictured in the above photo.
A 20x20 Lullaby, Surreal Drawn Life, and a PechaKucha Crate
Presentations Megg Evans is a Melbourne-based designer who co-founded Brolly Studios with Martin Heide and Stuart Webber. When she gave this presentation (from PKN Melbourne Vol. 19), her son Melvin was just 10 weeks old, and she brought him along and gave this beautiful 20x20 lullaby to her baby and the very impressed crowd. Fede Calandria's work could be described as a combination of art, design, and illustration. As he explains in this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mendoza Vol. 3), he finds inspiration everywhere, and likes to incorporate what he sees in his daily life, interpreting it in his own way. Posters We end the week with an explosion of posters on our Tumblr blog, with the following events being represented: PKN Guimaraes Vol. 3, PKN Memphis Vol. 1 and 2, PKN St. Albert Vol. 1, PKN Mallorca Vol. 1, and then PKN Maribor Vol. 9, which is pictured above. We sure love that Maribor tagline: "Come and meet our amazing guests. Creativity is their middle name ;-)" Below, a look at both sides of the flyer that was produced for last night's PKN Norwich Vol. 4. Photos We like this spray painted crate we spotted here, located at the entrance of this past week's PKN Bilbao Vol. 12. Below, a look at the old school billboard entrance to the theatre where last night's PKN Winnipeg Vol. 10 was held. Calendar It's Friday (June 22), and so here's what you can expect in terms of events over the weekend, starting with tonight: PKN Zilina Vol. 19, PKN Sendai Vol. 2, PKN Miami Vol. 2, PKN Gisborne Vol. 9, and PKN Seattle Vol. 37. It's a quiet Saturday in PKN land, but Sunday will see PKN Pueblo Vol. 5.
Indonesian Batik, Skateboarding as a Life Philosophy, and an Illustrated Crowd in Longmont
Presentations UNESCO designated Indonesian Batik as a "Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity" on October 2, 2009. As Yudhinia Venkanteswari explains in her presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93), what distinguishes it from other manual wax-resist dyeing technique is that traditional Indonesian Batik uses "canting," a bamboo pen with copper wax container, as a tool to draw a pattern with melted wax on a piece of cloth. Another technique used is "cap," which is to create a shape of melted wax with a copper stamp. The waxing and dyeing is then repeated to get the desired colored patterns. Pablo Martínez has won numerous skateboarding championships in Argentina, Chile, Brazil, and Uruguay, and has adapted skateboarding to his own philosophy of life, which he shares with his sons. In this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mar Del Plata Vol. 2), he talks about how great it is to travel with them around the world for skateboarding. Photos Kicking off the week, we have a few photo galleries to share from around the web, some larger than others. The photos above are all from last week's PKN Bordeaux Vol. 7. Please note that the link for the Pittsburgh event also includes a report of how things went.PKN Bordeaux Vol. 7 [LMVDR]PKN Pittsburgh Vol. 12 [AIA Pittsburgh]PKN Mallorca Vol. 1 [Facebook]PKN Hyderabad Vol. 9 [Facebook]And instead of a photo, below is a wonderful illustration by PKN Longmont organizer Dwayne Wolff of the audience at the city's very first PKN, back in 2011. Links We have a couple of links to share today, one covering PKN Muscat, the other PKN Charleston. "A space for the creative minds" [The Times of Oman]"What is PechaKucha?" [ABC News 4 Charleston]Calendar Here comes July, and as is usually the case during the summer, we start seeing fewer events due to the holidays. There is an event tonight (July 2) though, and so you can look to PKN Pittsboro Vol. 11 for some PechaKucha satisfaction.
Urban Exploring in Kyiv and a Dog's Life Presented
Presentations It would be difficult for a dog to give a presentation -- not many of us speak "dog" -- so in comes Lesley Ann Beck who, on behalf of Hamish McPuppy, describes a dog's life. It was recorded at PKN Pittsfield Vol. 1. Dan Voronov is a writer and director, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7) he explains how he has developed what he considers to be an improved way of conducting urban hikes. He's behind the "Kyiv Explore Together" project in which, under his guidance every Saturday, a group gets together to cross difficult terrain within Kyiv. Posters After yesterday's poster explosion -- which were also featured in the post -- we just have one new addition to the Tumblr blog today, for PKN Tbilisi Vol. 2 (above), which is happening this Friday. Calendar First, a reminder on what to expect tonight (July 25): PKN Derby Vol. 6, PKN Znojmo Vol. 1, PKN Helena Vol. 2, PKN Tokyo Vol. 94, and PKN Providence Vol. 40. Tomorrow night we have the following four PKNs set to take place: PKN Milwaukee Vol. 11, PKN Portland, Maine Vol. 20, PKN Detroit Vol. 12, and PKN Los Angeles Vol. 31.
Sketchbook of Life
Today's edition of "Presentation of the Day" asks us to think on a major paradigm of our existence: the division of work and life. In his presentation (from PKN Stockholm Vol. 21) Martin Willers questions the necessity of this partitioning, and he does so while giving us a tour through his sketchbook. Willers addresses the 5-day work week and humanity's march down path of industrialism. We continue to build, to create, to work, but we also continue to waste. Is it really necessary for us to follow this incline? You be the judge.
Life after teemlead: Y/N?
Is teemlead an only way for professional growth for a developer? Personal advice from Viktor Sergienko on PKN vol.6 IT Dnepropetrovsk is to explore multiple opportunities for horizontal and vertical growth, be grave for leaving your comfort zone and never stop creating yourself.
