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.
PechaKucha x School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Later this month (October 23), PechaKucha Night in Chicago is teaming up with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for a special PechaKucha event. Here's more from PKN Chicago organizer Peter Exley: Since PK began in Chicago, one of the most fertile sources of presenters and supporters seems to have been the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recognizing this, PKN Chicago is organizing a special PK event to coincide with this year's parents weekend. So Moms, Mums, and Dads from around the world converging on Chicago with their offspring attending SAIC will discover PK, and be on the lookout for it back home in their cities. And a new crop of young creatives will get their first taste of PK. We're very excited to be doing this with the [Art Insti] "tute." The poster for the event was designed by Eric Baskauskas.
My Role as a Storyteller
Though the phrase "a picture is worth a thousand words" is a cliché, photographer Jeanie Adams-Smith takes the concept to heart, and uses her snapshots to tell stories with leagues of emotional depth. In her presentation (from PKN Bowling Green, Vol. 1), Jeanie lets us peek through her viewfinder, and into the lives of kids and parents experiencing pain and exclusion, joy and wonder. To see more of Jeanie's photos, check out her online portfolio.
Why Be Deceptively Delicious When You Can Be Culinarily Creative?
No need to hide healthy food in your kids' meals, just make it look good! Many parents will try to disguise healthy foods to get their kids to eat them, but Jennifer Brandle-McCall believes that making healthy foods recognisable and fun is the key to developing healthy eating choices. In "Why Be Deceptively Delicious When You Can Be Culinarily Creative?" from PKN Prince George Vol. 2, she points out that we eat with our eyes first, so why not add some creativity and fun to our meals. See some of the culinary creations she has created that encourage her kids to explore healthy foods.
“I’ve taken portraits of over 5000 groups of parents and children over a 30-year period.” Photographer Bruce Osborn is a long-time resident of Japan, and at a special Tokyo Designers Week 2014 edition of PKN Tokyo Vol. 118 here he describes "Oyako" (a Japanese word that signifies both parent and child): a multi-decade photography project that has consumed his life, and given him amazing insights into Japanese society, and the fantastically diverse family links that exists between parent and child.
New Born Fame
Should newborns be given a choice as to whether they want to be on social media? One woman designed a toy that gives them that “choice.” Technologist and developer Laura Cornet found that 46% of parents (based on a UK poll) post photos of their children to Facebook on the the day they are born. In “New Born Fame” from PKN Breda Vol. 12 we see that she developed a product that allows babies to post selfies from the crib as a technological and ethical experiment. The results were greater that she could have expected.
Making His Parents Proud
This is a Christmas card list you wish you could be on. Since Sam Mechling’s second birthday, his parents have had such high hopes for him. In “Making His Parents Proud” from PKN Chicago Vol. 30, we see that he perhaps doesn’t turn out quite in the way they had expected.
Our Treasured Non-Moments
“These little non-moments you think are nothing mean a lot to me.” Every time photographer Connie Tsang returns to her hometown to see her parents she’d get a bit sad — her parents were rapidly changing. In “Our Treasured Non-Moments” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 121, she speaks about the seemingly dull yet vibrant moments she captures of her parents as they transition from busily running their family restaurant, to easing into retirement, to slowly ageing before her eyes.
Growing a Community of Impact
"Maybe it's a natural virus for someone who has social workers as parents, but for me I thought I had to help everyone in trouble." In Growing a Community of Impact from Bergen Vol. 3, Silje Grastveit tells her story of what inspired her to become an entrepreneur. She started Impact Hub in Bergen, Norway, working to support social entrepreneurs. In just a few years the organization's network has spread to over 60 cities, and continues to grow. The community has reached more than 10,000 members focussing on making a positive impact in the world. Impact Hub Bergen was one of the early versions, it opened in 2011 and is the first incubator for social innovation in Norway.
