 Blue-Sky Painting

BY CLAUDE FRANCHETEAU
@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"I was lying on my back, near the river, my eyes staring into the deep blue of the sky. At the edge of my field of vision, I could see the rooves and chimneys of buildings, lost in the vastness and giving meaning to it. What I saw could be a way to paint."
Claude Francheteau paints contemporary and yet paradoxically classical skies.
With the help of modern acrylic paints and digital photography, depicting skies in the ancient way with a modern eye. A sincere kind of blue sky thinking." 
Claude Francheteau

Venom Palette Illustrates for PKN Gothenburg

Kudos to PechaKucha Night Gothenburg for inspiring one of its past presenters, illustrator Daniel Johansson (aka Venom Palette), into producing the PKN GBG image seen above. Daniel has this to say on the piece: The image is a paraphrase on the last image of my own PechaKucha presentation which portrayed a tiger woman -- the only illustration my dad likes. This illustration is of a zebra woman (actually Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs who also modeled for the tiger woman illustration). The zebra pattern symbolize the beautiful multiplicity and uniqueness of PechaKucha and all the different presenters. The microphone represent the verbal part of presenting, and the camera (head) for the visual part. And everybody wears Converse shoes in Gothenburg!

Painting with Light

Although not from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, we continue to celebrate creativity this week by highlighting a great presentation every day, today turning our attention to "Painting with Light" from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10. Photographer Mateusz Staniewski presents a selection of light works and a series of incredible images that were all created without any use of Photoshop. In the presentation, he shares various techniques on how to paint with light.

Light Painting in Osnabrueck

Shown at Osnabrueck's PechaKucha Night Vol. 6 earlier this year, the photos included in this post are part of some "light painting" work by Christoph Abé and Kai Bornemann. PKN Osnabrueck organizer Clemens Gruber has sent us some text in German to accompany the photos, but do note that all of them do not use any Photoshop trickery. Wenn die von den Eltern vermittelten Werte bei ihren erwachsenen Kindern manch roten Leitfaden darstellen, welcher sicher durch die Gesellschaft führt, dann darf man als Papa und als Mama gleichermaßen stolz sein. Denn diese Werte, dieser Anstand und diese Bildung sind das Ergebnis einer langen Reise, welche durch mehrere Generationen führt. Kennst du die Stille im Lärm, welche dich im Alltag umgibt und die du als unangenehm wahrnimmst, da immer um dich herum etwas passieren muß?! Genieß diese kleine Insel und nutze sie zum Durchatmen ... sie ist dein Erholungsort im Dschungel der Hektik. An was glaubst du, wenn du an das Wort „GLAUBE“ denkst? An was denkst du, wenn du an das Wort „Nachdenken“ glaubst? Glaubst du, dass du WIRKLICH die Fähigkeit der Reflexion besitzt? Oder glaubst du nicht eher doch an den Spiegel, den du dir selber vorhälst, damit du nicht weiter Nachdenken musst, wer du WIRLICH bist? Das Licht am Ende eines Tunnels ist in vielerlei Hinsicht interpretierbar: Man kann es als Neuanfang sehen, als helfende Hand, als wärmenden Sonnenschein im tristen Alltag oder einfach nur als das, was es ist: Die Helligkeit, welche uns immer wieder lächeln lässt, welche uns gerne an das erinnern lässt, wofür es sich zu Leben lohnt: die Einmaligkeit von besonderen, hellen Momenten! Unverdaute Vertrautheit gleicht einer unverbrauchten Seele: Naiv, flügelspreizend und ohne jegliche Bedenken dem Risiko begegnend, welches einem in Form von angeblich abgeklärten Menschen ins offene Messer rennen lässt.

Painting with Light

Light painting isn't a new art form by any stretch, but recently it's been revitalized and enhanced by the DIY community. In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, we see the extent to which the medium has grown.  In his presentation (from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10) Mateusz Staniewski enlightens us on the finer details of the photographic art. The techniques he goes into include light-stenciling, freezing, and painting; when combining these methods the results are both literally and figuratively luminous. There's much more to be seen than said here, so for further illumination check out the full presentation.

Smarty Pants

Your heart rate is elevated, breathing pattern is abnormal. Sensors built into your clothing detect your anxiety and dispatch a calming agent.   Ashley Lewis, a tech educator in Toronto, talks of her passion of tech-craft hybrids. In "Smarty Pants" from PKN Toronto Vol. 27, she is inspired by current interactive clothing and future consumer products from conductive ink and thread to makeup and sportswear that will have you thinking about fashion in a completely different way.

Developers, Take Part!

Are you taking part in BitSummit MMXIV? Let us know, we'd love to record you giving a PechKucha presentation (20 images x 20 seconds) and have you be part of the BitSummit Channel on the PechaKucha global website. We're trying something a bit different in partnering up with BitSummit, and instead of producing an event in front of an audience during the festival that would limit the number of participants, we are encouraging all participants to record a PechaKucha presentation with us on-site -- and these presentations can be given in English or Japanese. Tell us about your game! Tell us about your company! Tell us how you got started in the industry! Share your stories and experiences using the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format. We will be at the festival during all 3 days (March 7-9) with the equipement to record you giving the presentation (either at your booth if you have one, or in a spot somewhere on the show floor). All you need to prepare are the 20 images you will use in your presentation, that's it! Please get in touch now to make sure we get you, or come see us if you spot us on the show floor -- we'll be wearing our black PechaKucha "20 images x 20 seconds" t-shirts! PechaKucha is very happy to take part in this year's BitSummit festival, and we can't wait to share your presentations with the world.

Systemic Painting

If you've ever wanted to see the inside of an artist's mind, this is a great way to do it. Bob Richardson shares his unique mode of painting using a grid-system, and in "Systemic Painting" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 explains how his art style has changed over the years. He uses a variety of mediums, including canvas, silk screen, and watercolor paper. After retirement, Bob revisited his systemic painting method and experimented with new compositions and brush widths to create effective pieces of art.
