Dead Frog in the Rental Car

@ VOL 3
ON MAY 26, 2015
This is a look at finding delight and laughter, loneliness and frustration, and amazing people we find in our business travel journey. Different than holiday and exploration travel where it's all about "me", business travel comes with a "they" agenda and the parameters that brings. The trick is not to lose yourself in the agenda and to enjoy the ride and the surprises you may find.

An Affordable Alternative to Retail Chain Art
BY TOM LUYTEN
@ VOL 27
ON NOV 23, 2015
“We live in a global village but it turns out that all houses in the global village look the same, and I was kind of bothered with that.”
In An Affordable Alternative to Retail Chain Art from PechaKucha Night Maastricht’s 27th volume, Presenter Tom Luyten discusses one of his biggest issues when it comes to home decoration. Bothered by the fact that we live in a world full of living rooms with the same picture hanging above the couch, he created an alternative. Watch as Tom tells us how to create art that is both unique and affordable, without settling for lesser quality and still provide the artist with a sufficient compensation.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, April, 21, 2016.

Haley Naboychik believes that educational experiences should be designed to be real and relevant to the world beyond high school.

SITEWIDE BLOG POSTS
We kick off this week's presentation highlights with another one from last week's relaunch of PechaKucha Night in London, with Spike Spondike and "Design Against Crime." Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment -- even the experience of shopping itself -- reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz? DAC is a socially responsive, practice-led research centre located at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London.

Real Japanese Gardens
Jenny Schröder had a comfortable life working for a global IT firm in London, but cast it all to the wind after a brief trip to Japan. In today's issue of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) Jenny tells us how she journeyed to Saitama (the prefecture along Tokyo's northern border) to study the art of garden design, and fell into a well of knowledge deeper than she had expected. Schröder came to understand the design elements -- the balance of moss, rock, sand; the way Japanese architecture served as a frame for the garden space. She discovered the cultural/historical elements as well: the practice of Sadō (ritual tea-making and imbibing) is often performed with a garden as foreground or background, and Kamakura/Muromachi Era garden designer and Rinzai Zen Monk Musō Soseki's environments can be experienced throughout Japan to this day. She's compiled much of her knowledge on her website (JapaneseGardens.jp) and continues to update regularly. If you've ever longed to breathe in the smell of greenery and tea whilst gazing upon the juxtaposition of nature, Schröder's database is a great place to begin.
The real dui sabda-Rabi Thapa
http://nepalitimes.com/news.php?id=18138#.UXgr6Dnzt2A The idea of a presentation in less than 10 minutes is no doubt an appealing one, particularly for Nepali audiences accustomed to the blather of self-important personages with no respect for their time. Having ranted concisely on this point not so long ago, I was intrigued to hear of but disappointed to miss out on the first edition of Pecha Kucha Kathmandu in Attic Bar. I was happy therefore to be invited to contribute to photo.circle's presentation for the second edition last Saturday. The format of Pecha Kucha, which is Japanese for 'chit-chat', is 20x20. This means that each presenter – and there are about a dozen per session – gets 20 seconds each for 20 slides, making for precisely 6 minutes 40 seconds. No politely gesturing hosts are needed to discourage over-running, as the presenter has no control over the slides he or she is presenting. The fear of being caught mid-presentation as your 'Thank You' slide beams out to the audience appears to be deterrent enough. Pecha Kucha began in 2003 in Japan and has now spread to over 260 cities. Kathmandu's second edition took on an 'Inspire Japan' theme and included an incredible range of suitably inspirational stories from artists, journalists, photographers, writers and filmmakers. It was further enlivened by an auction of organiser Sujan Chitrakar and Chirag Bangdel's artworks, the proceeds from which joined with door takes to help fund the building of a school in Japan. Of course, there are always good presentations and bad presentations. There is the risk of Death by Powerpoint, and inattentive audiences. And the format has unique challenges. It took some doing to squeeze the seven slides I was allotted on the book 'Hamra Hajurama' into photo.circle's presentation – in so many words, to distill my grandmother's three billion seconds of personal history into 140. And then you had American photographer Brian Sokol, who chose to sit in near-total silence as his brooding images of urban Japan cast light and shade on us. "Who'd have thought 20 seconds would be so long," he quipped. But the inspiration was as much for the Nepalis present as for Japan. While those meant to be doing the most for Nepal stoop ever lower in their bungling, self-absorbed cretinism, to hear someone passionately describing a project that she has poured her creativity and intellect into is to hear the sound of hope. It goes without saying that there are many more Nepalis across the country equally deserving of such a platform to present their ideas to their peers. Pecha Kucha Pokhara's a shoo-in.
What's the Big Idea?!
Where do good ideas come from? What does a bad idea looks like? How can you turn an idea into reality? In today's Presentation of the Day, "What's the Big Idea?!" (from PKN Louisville Vol. 10) Will Russell goes into detail on his wacky, weird, and wonderful ideas (failures and successes) such as international Big Lebowski gathering Lebowski Fest, retail store and unoffical fanclub for the city WHY Louisville, Pee Wee Over Louisville, and his failed attempt to create a Kentucky Rushmore (Muhammad Ali, Colonel Sanders, Abraham Lincoln, and Triple Crown winning racehorse Secretariat were to be included).
Design Against Crime
What if your chair could prevent theft? In today's Presentation of the Day "Design Against Crime" from PKN London Vol. 1, designer at the Design Against Crime Research Centre Spike Spondike argues that designers and criminals have a lot in common: they look for opportunities, they're risk-inclined, and they have a "wonky way of thinking." She asks: Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment – even the experience of shopping itself – reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?
Parklets: Regaining our Public Spaces
We can all agree cars take up way too much space in the city. Why not repurpose parking for something more citizen-friendly? In "Parklets: Regaining our Public Spaces", from PKN Mexico City Vol. 31, Tania Guerrero and Julien Salabelle of Área de Investigación DAS present on a project developed with the intention of regaining the street from the automobiles, and to expand the potential of public spaces with the help of sustainable mobile installations.
Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information
"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation." From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Safecast.org Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.
