Pigment-Imitating-Pixels-Imitating-Graphite: Perceptions in Daydreaming
BY RUSSELL REID
@ VOL 2
ON MAR 10, 2015
This presentation briefly explores the production and workflow of creativity as it is first “discovered” in a graphite and/or ink sketch, then compositionally interpreted in Photoshop, and finally reinterpreted as a canvas painting from the digital compilation. Do the tools available with advances in technology change the paradigm of the creative decision making process? And, the chicken or the egg question, Is the canvas painting an original or a copy?

Photographer Keitaro Yonehara presented a selection of his works at Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo Vol. 58. The most surprising part of the presentation was when he explained to the audience that all of the works on display received absolutely no digital manipulation, or in the words of Yonehara: "No Photoshop!" You can view more of Yonehara's work at the artist's website.
PKN Sacramento Vol. 8
Last month's PechaKucha Night in Sacramento Vol. 8 was again held at the Level Up Lounge -- here's hoping plenty of glasses of "The Pecha Kucha" got served -- and organizer Claire Obenson sends in this report. The last PK Night went very well. We had seven presenters (including me) at Level Up Lounge in Sacramento: fashion designer Pamela Desrochers (special guest presenter), designer extraordinaire and Romp Creative co-founder Jake Favour, 19-year-old artist Stephanie Karapinar (our youngest ever presenter), moi, architect and artist Merle Serlin, designer and fisherman Scott Vaughn, and virtual designers Justin & Laura Wood. The lounge typically features the work of a different artist each month. This month, the featured artist was Merle Serlin whose work is beyond description. Her landscapes are sown on fabric. I think most of the presentations were quite original, yet quintessentially Sacramento. Some examples include Scott Vaughn's presentation on Fly Fishing and Pamela Desrochers' highly accessible fashion designs. Justin and Laura Woods virtual design work was unlike anything we've ever seen. Jake Favour was bursting with design ideas he would like to implement or see implemented -- his "Balloon-Enabled Pizza Picnic Delivery" was a fan favourite. Stephanie Karapinar had some fabulous charcoal sketches and futuristic photoshop creations. My presentation was on Hip Hop Architecture, whom some compared to late artist, Keith Haring. Honestly, I "sampled" from "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt -- I call it Klimting! The March flyer is a hip, superfly version of American Gothic. Our next PKN will be in August, themed "Hot August Nights." We have announced a competition to design a poster to advertise the event.
PKN Christchurch Vol. 8
Last month's PechaKucha Night in Christchurch Vol. 8 had a special host, and yes, as the photo above reveals, none other than PK co-founder Mark Dytham was in town to not only attend the event but also lend a hand with the mic. Big thanks to organizer Vanessa Coxhead for the nice gallery of photos -- we're including a few in this post, but there's much more to see in this Flickr photoset. And if you missed it, take a look at the amazing posters that were created for the event -- and those are not just photoshop jobs, all of those "PK meets heavy metal" t-shirts were actually produced (but limited to 1 each).
Painting with Light

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.
