George's Haiku Adventure

BY GEORGE NELSON
@ VOL 150 ON SEP 27, 2017

ニュージーランド出身のGeorge Nelsonさんは、早稲田大学への留学を機に驚異的な成長で日本語を習得し、ついには絵と五七五調の俳句(川柳)による創作表現まで行うようになりました。Georgeさんのシュールな詩と絵からは、ある意味テクノとファッションのが融合するような化学反応を感じられます。思わず笑みがこぼれハマってしまう世界観をお楽しみに!

George Nelson from New Zealand zealously picked up the Japanese language during his education at Waseda University with an earnest intent to create satirical poetry known as Senryu. Senryu, otherwise known as human haiku adheres to the format of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. Combining that rigor with George Nelson’s surrealistic sensibilities and electrifying personality, this PechaKucha promises 400 seconds of cheeky quips and non-stop smiling.

Poetic Photography, Developing Creative Thinking, and a Look at Varberg

Presentations David Herman performs a poetic presentation (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10), using a lovely collection of photographs as visual cues. Lina Bergstrøm is a sociologist, and she adds studying techno-anthropology to her skills. She made this presentation (in Danish, from PKN Aalborg Vol. 9) on how to develop creative thinking and processes, and how our creativity can leave footsteps in the world. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is for this Thursday's PKN Townsville Vol. 1 (in the form of a flyer), but the poster you see above is one that we added last week, but wanted to highlight here, for next month's PKN Las Palmas Vol. 8.  Photos and video Varberg just had its Vol. 3, but here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for the city's Vol. 2 -- with 2 examples above -- along with a short video to give you a taste of how things went.  httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aauDNabhowE&feature=share&list=PLD48329F77CD81E07 Calendar There are no events tonight, but tomorrow (October 16) we have the following five PKNs in the calendar: PKN Hong Kong Vol. 12, PKN Poitiers Vol. 3, PKN Hjorring Vol. 2, PKN Sacramento Vol. 19, and PKN Helsingborg Vol. 10.

Runs Within - A Motif Project

Karyna Wallace tells a story by way of poetry; it revolves around the prints she developed under the theme "Vampires," as assigned by her professor. In her presentation (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) she offers up new interpretations: instead of drawing bats and bloody black cats, she analyses a vampire's needs and wants, and compares them to our human desires. She notices that the needs and wants that run within us take us through several stages of emotions throughout our lives. It is through this process that we grow spiritually and physically. We all experience these sensations, but the real question is: Can we reach our ultimate goal?

Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth

"This poem is an ode to every hard working artist who knows the joy of struggle from which their art comes."In Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth from PechaKucha Night San Antonio Vol. 20, poet laureate, Laurie Ann Guerrero looks back at her ancestors’ history of labor and struggle as art, a legacy of poets, musicians and painters whose artistry was a way to map and ultimately transcend the world. Art, she says, is a pursuit of truth. It was her ancestor’s many generations of that pursuit that ultimately gave her the privilege and position of being asked to make art: the maker, not the object. Through poetry, Guerrero invites us to share in that space of openness, vulnerability and ultimately grace.
