Runs Within - a Motif Project
BY KARYNA WALLACE
@ VOL 97
ON NOV 28, 2012
This is a poem and a story that revolves around the prints she developed under the theme "Vampires," as assigned by her professor. She offers up a new interpretation, and instead of drawing bats and bloody black cats, she analyses a vampire's needs and wants, and then compares it to us humans. She notices that what runs within us -- our needs and wants -- takes us through several stages of emotions throughout our lives, as we grow spiritually and physically. We all experience them, and the point is when -- and if -- we can reach our ultimate goal. (in English)
Anastomosis: the Connected City
BY DOMINIK SAITL
@ VOL 104
ON JUN 26, 2013
Project [anastomosis] presents a different view on the functioning of contemporary city and solution of its problems. Dominik Saitl explains that the city is understood as a closed structure with "frozen evolution". Its further developement can't be done by rebuilding the city but by its adaptation. To start this healing process it is necessary to activate small but important connections.

SITEWIDE BLOG POSTS
André Mintz is a visual communicator and artist, as well as founding member of the Marginalia Project, "an art experimentation collective focused on a critical -- but mostly ludic -- approach to new media and new media art." For PechaKucha Night in Lima Vol. 2 he talked about one his projects, a video entitled Paik for Kids. That city's organizer Jules Bay sends in a proper explanation of the piece. In the video Paik for Kids –- made by André Mintz out of family archive -– the electronic image theme is developed from the point of view of the spectator, in the figure of a child being presented by her dad to a TV set that displays the image of the child herself captured by the camera in real-time. It’s not a direct antecessor of Marginalia Project, but a conceptual antecessor, that shows already the problematic with which the project relates to. The relation between body and image -- between one’s self and its representation -- in a gaze that seeks by the naivety the revelation of intrinsic characteristics of the materiality of the image. In a moment in which the video image -- with its specific characteristics, such as its accessibility to a larger amateur public and its simultaneity -- was also in its childhood, with the first explorations of its potentials. By placing the camera framing the image itself produces, the system feeds back itself, multiplying the image it captures ad infinitum, like two mirrors facing each other. It’s a basic procedure of video -- that was impossible in traditional cinema -- used in many works in this field, and that will also be used in marginalia. However, such procedure is quite different from the mirrors, since the body of the spectator is detached from the image formation, allowing her only to perceive it -- as her movement does not make it possible to see anything beyond what the camera sees. The playing of getting into and out of the frame reveals the fragmentation produced by the camera, just as the similarities and distinctions between the body of the spectator and represented body -- between the subjective point of view and the view of the self made objective. Marginalia Project seeks an experience close to this childish one: an exploratory will without a predetermined objective beyond the knowledge offered by the process; in process. The idea as a product of experience; of the direct contact with the materiality from which it elaborates its own form and detonates new processes.

Glass That Produces Heat, Killing Architecture, and Birthday Wishes from Catania
Presentations In this presentation, part of a special PKN event in Miami (Vol. 14) that dealt with sustainability and the environment, Roz Gatewood introduces EnergyGlass, a type of window that can produce heat. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) by Laco Tousek is about social exclusion and spatial segregation, and the social anthropologist's point of view on sharing urban spaces. Who wants to kill the street? Developers, politicians, and architects -- they are the creators of the barriers between people interaction. Using several samples of high valued architecture projects from all over the world, he portrays architecture as a killer of public spaces. Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight one of our recent uploads, in this case the poster you see above for PKN Bogota Vol. 9, happening on October 12.

Hermosillo Night #2
Hermosillo, Sonora, México. October 10, 2013. With double the assistance and double the fun, Hermosillo presented its second PechaKucha Night at the mecca of indie/local music "Backroom". Mexican sculptor Enrique Aviléz was the first presenter on stage and took us around his life-long journey of working with stone, copper, several types of clay, glass, wood and any other material that will help in the execution of his multiple ideas influenced entirely by the local culture. Enrique shared with us an interesting point of view: he believes the name of the streets in a city shapes its identity, just like certain features define us as a human being. Find more about Enrique here. Graphic designer and photographer Alejo Gastélum invited us to witness his collection of Art Toys, inspired by a well-known toy brand. He showed a passion for geometric shapes and optical illusions and his experience and thoughts about working with logotypes and branding for local businesses. Find more about Alejo here. Following the format and taking advantage of it, Desierto Indie gave us a packed-full of ideas presentation. Their project consists of documenting local gigs and cultural events with videos and photographs but the core idea behind it is allowing the future generations consult this sort of "gig/event library" to let them know how cool Hermosillo's music scene "was" in 2013. Their motivation also consists on expanding the art variety in the city and creating a historic archive of the current art movement. Surf Desierto Indie's library here. Next to Desierto Indie, David Norzagaray captivated the crowd with such interesting project which consists on producing music to use as therapy for disabled people. All of this, fusioned with his passion for Mexico and most of all, the northern Mexico's chords of the Sonoran desert. David's most recent execution includes a music album for kids with lyrics completely inspired by universal literature. Find more about David's work here. Speaking of captivating, Daniel Ríos showed us the massive influence on todays creative processes and its results from a speedy technology development perspective. How different the art-creating life was back then where videos were literally 'cut' and 'glued' back together and how simple it is today by just tapping a few times on a super-clear display and upload it anywhere within minutes. Find more about Daniel here. Miguel Franco's presentation was as brilliant as his cinematography career. His experience has given him plenty of emotions and character including probably the most important: perseverance and stepping out of the comfort zone. Miguel told us how film has been his dream since he was a kid and all the trouble and happiness this has brought to him including a few career-threatening accidents. Find more about Miguel here. Mexican fashion designer Isa Valdéz shared with us her creative process inside the fashion/textile business and the different ways she chooses to come up with a method to execute an idea and the mysterious places she can get into, obtaining as a result always three ideas at once. She compares it to solving a puzzle. Her main goal is creating an emotion in her and the spectator at once. This way, Isa feels she connects with the world, being her little daughter a fundamental part of her motor. Find more about Isa here. Carlos Iván was one of those extra-interesting presenters. He photographs abandoned houses, cars, towns and all sort of situations that tell a story to his camera lens. Carlos perspective certainly showed us through his pictures the beauty of isolated objects, almost as if they were beautiful sculptures in the middle of nowhere narrating a charming tale. Find more about Carlos here. After a successful beer break, Miriam Salado was kind enough to explain from top to bottom, the meticulous process of building an art exhibition. Her paintings, part of "Muerte y Gloria (Death and Glory)" show the heavy influence of mexican-american cultures in clothing, habits and the new ways of living and gave Miriam a second place in the 8th Visual Art Biennale of Sonora. Find more about Miriam here. "Sin Llorar (No crying)" consists of a determined couple of local artists who came to revolutionize the custom tattoo industry in the community with their high-quality custom art. They shared with us the complexity of the process and the hard work it requires to usually compress a lot of feelings onto one little graphic on the customer's skin. Be brave and make an appointment here. Fernando Valles a local TV host, gave us an insight on rustic to modern video-making, the television life and the long ride he has experienced with "Video Track", a tv show aimed at young visual art enthusiasts. Find more about Fernando and Video Track here. Our next presenter was the shocking moment of the night. Mexican radio/voice-creative César Parra amazed us with his broad experience with radio, jingles and advertising. He has provided professional voice services for Pepsi and other famous brands. We all cheered and squeaked in happiness the very moment he started performing the voice of several Thundercats characters (cartoon) on stage as he worked in the project back then. We were so astonished by his presentation that none of us remembered to snap a pic. :( Find more about Cesar here. Our next presenter Keops took the stage and taught us about the importance of co-working and the amazing results it produces. His presentation included a well resumed list of benefits from working along with other creative people and how far and big a project can turn with just the right combination of people, all started with just a simple idea. Find more about Keops here. Sergio Durón was one of our last presenters but managed to keep our already tipsy heads with his clever work. His broad graphic design experience involves several local communities, being the most famous "Bikes & Beers" where the Hermosillo bike enthusiasts gather at a certain landmark, travel for a few kilometers and finish at a bar having a couple of beers and sharing the fandom. Find more about Sergio here. Our last presenter Javier Quiñonez gave us a tour around the geology of the city. Being the "Cerro de la Campana (Bell Hill)" one of the most important landmarks in the city, he taught us about the resonancy of the rocks surrounding said landmark, therefore the name of the famous hill that can be seen almost from every point in Hermosillo on a clear day. Find more of Javier here. Thanks again to PechaKucha in Tokyo for letting us hold the event in Hermosillo and being part of the Global Night that we enjoyed so much. We would also like to thank Backroom for letting us host the event in this venue. -Elizabeth Torres Photos by: Carolina Fierros and E. Torres.
30,000 Foot View of Biology

A Thin Line
"Its not about what you see, but how you see it." In A Thin Line from Beirut, Vol. 22, Serge Najjar, who once suspected he could never creative anything artistic, offers a truly stunning view of Lebanon through his masterful photos, full of delicate humanity against a backdrop of unsuspecting yet dramatic architecture. While alluding to the thin line between past and present, he shares his experience of how the challenge to create a single image can shape one's view the entire the world, adding "when you look at things around you with a new eye, you live again." Come see the world through Najjar's lens, in this highly compelling presentation, and be inspired to see your surroundings with curiosity, attention, seeking magical revelations in everyday life.
