cielo, luz y fotografia

BY MARIA CIRANO ELORRIETA
IN VALPARAÍSO

A los 13 años descubre y se enamora de la fotografía, el cielo y la luz. En esa búsqueda estudia Arquitectura en la UTFSM, fotografía en la escuela Cámara Lúcida y un Diplomado en Iluminación en la PUC; y se incorpora a la Sociedad Astronómica de Valparaíso y Viña del Mar, SAVAL, institución de la cual es vicepresidente a partir de 2013. Además es parte de la iniciativa NOCHEZERO, plataforma de discusión sobre el futuro de la iluminación de nuestras ciudades.

Todas estas pasiones la han llevado a enfocar sus intereses profesionales y trabajo artístico hacia la astrofotografía, la contaminación lumínica y la iluminación urbana.

Sus imágenes han sido exhibidas y publicadas en diversos medios, tales como el India Astro-Photo Festival, Nueva Delhi (2012); la revista Luminous de Philips (2014) y recientemente por el European Southern Observatory (ESO).

 Blue-Sky Painting

BY CLAUDE FRANCHETEAU
@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"I was lying on my back, near the river, my eyes staring into the deep blue of the sky. At the edge of my field of vision, I could see the rooves and chimneys of buildings, lost in the vastness and giving meaning to it. What I saw could be a way to paint."
Claude Francheteau paints contemporary and yet paradoxically classical skies.
With the help of modern acrylic paints and digital photography, depicting skies in the ancient way with a modern eye. A sincere kind of blue sky thinking." 
Claude Francheteau

PKN Weimar #3: SKY is the limit!

Now, after a winter brake; PechaKucha comes back - directly from the sky!

Take the lift (from the asphalt square) to the top of limona and let your presentation skills go high! Enjoy listening and watching the speakers on the background of a splendid view over Weimar! Send your presentation by 23.04 to pknweimar@gmail.com! Friday, 25.03.2014, starting at 20.00 with a cheerful concert by Ammalia and Daniele.

#3 in the SKY

This was good! And it all started with a magnificent concerto of the delicious trio: Limona Jam: Ammalia Podlaszewska + Daniele Agretti + Alex Osipenko. Taste it in a short glimpse! This was an allover dream come true evening! We had local musicians performing together for the first time, we landed on a spectacular venue on a roof top of our city, we reached the magic 10 presentations and our audience keeps on growing! Right after the sunset, we had Rubén Robledo Ibáñez showing us his reportage photos from the Gaza Stripe where he spent several weeks among befriended Palestinians. Geographically not afar, the next was Athina Stefani from Greece who involved us in her story about Ludwig Wittgenstein's house, told by the mean her own drawings authored throughout the nights before Friday: And then it happened: the Italian-Swedish team of laughter monsters (Sara Ferraioli + Carl Ydergård) stretched our cheeks to a high level of pain with their rythmic story on how Daniele, who happened to be the guitarrist at the same evening, made his career instead of playing football. A series of 20 photomontages made us laugh through the whole 400 seconds: This was not all! Sara couldn't stop just at one presentation.. An involving walk through the streets of Naples followed, filled with street art: After a smooth beer brake extended through the stunning views over Weimar: we took off again. This time Rika Tarigan from Indonesia engaged us with her designs of modern applications of the batik textile technique. Filtered through the cultural background of Indonesian fariy tales we were covered up with 20 splendid and very colorful images: Right after some colder recollections of the last winter arrived to us from Sankt Petersburg through Lithuania in the person of the delightful pianist Simona Zajancauskaite. The first musician to present images on PKN in Weimar! Stark congratulations for the courage! We were all touched by the transcontinental message instilled in the 20 slides under the title tandem, nothing is black and white anymore. The message pointing towards a possible European-Russian friendship was carried on by the presentation by Iman Hegazy (Egipt) and Tatiana Reshetnikova - the Urban Sketchers Weimar. In a series of speedy sketches we discovered some beautiful locations from Russia, Egypt and Weimar. Thank you and good luck with engaging more sketchers in your group!  The reportages from cold Russia made a perfect ground for the next story to come - this time by the PKN city-organizer himself. Gall Podlaszewski uncovered his winterly "cultural production": the Weimar Winter Bad - a series of Monday baths in the river of Ilm taking place under winter atmospheric conditions. The involvement of some other participants proved that the idea of swimming in the winter is not Bad at all! Here, the end of first season (photo by Simona Zajancauskaite who got up on a cold morning very early just to take this photo. What a brave daughter!): Right afterwards we had another swap of functions - now Tereza Spindlerova - the second city-organizer came out of her mixxer pult and took over the mic to tell us the development of her Spanish blog - a poetic journey supported by 20 almost abstract urban images: The splendid series of 10 presentations was closed, or rather opened up by the enigmatic Mr. Grüter, who did it just as we like - decided to present just at the same evening, bringing his presentation on a usb stick. Here Mr. Grüter seizes the audience with his magic pencil: Thank you all for the great fun we had that night!!

The Poor Brewers

“Trust me when I say that sharing beer is not a bad way to spend time.” Marilee and Karl Rutherford really like beer. So much, in fact that they decided to go all in and make their hobby into a business (Rude Hippo Brewing Company). Though their pie-in-the-sky initial plans were downgraded to something more realistic, what they traded in volume, they gained in momentum. In “The Poor Brewers” from a special AIA 2014 Convention edition of PKN Chicago, hear the story of their trials and ultimate triumph.

PechaKucha People: Christina Cho

The PechaKucha People Spotlight lands on Queensland Emerging Architects Prize recipient and longtime PechaKucha Night Brisbane organizer, Christina Cho. As one of 20 architects profiled in Chasing the Sky: 20 Stories of Women in Architecture, she encapsulates how on-target our organizers are. And with PKN Brisbane's 50th Volume this week, we thought we'd go ahead and blast the PechaKucha Global Spotlight on Christina again, posing here with PechaKucha Founder Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein at PechaKucha annual organizer meetup in Tokyo. Well done Christina and PechaKucha Brisbane Team for all the amazingness! Here's to the next 50!!!
