Hustle, Sex, $$$

BY ALEXANDRA FINE
@ VOL 6 ON OCT 19, 2015

Alexandra Fine is devoted to proving that sex can be equally as pleasurable for both men and women and aiding that assertion with creative, well-designed and flawlessly-executed sexual innovations. Eva, the first of these inventions, quickly became the #1 crowdfunded sex toy — catapulting Alex and her business partner, Janet, into the spotlight for their uniquely engineered couples’ vibrator aimed at closing the pleasure gap. She is also generally into fun and happiness.

How a simple change can change your daily life

BY ANDRÈ WOUTERS
@ VOL 27 ON NOV 23, 2015

Everything changed for André Wouters when he started slowing down. Rather than taking his lease car he started traveling by public transportation. He started talking to people in the train and discovered new stories. He realised how a simple change can open up a whole new way of living.

Here, Just Now

BY DEUCE DEUCE
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Deuce Deuce is a nomadic curatorial collaboration between Elizabeth Murphy and Amy Jones, occupying retail and exhibition formats to explore the cross-over between art, apparel and the absorption of sub-culture into the mainstream. 

Deuce Deuce is keen to support emerging practise, often working with recent graduates giving them their first commissioning opportunity. For HERE we have merged this ethos to include more established practises, giving these artists a space to explore an alternate aspect to there making. Having a print basis in the practise is not a pre-requisite for us when approaching practitioners, we know this project is unusual so we work closely with the selected artists to adapt and develop ideas for production.

Dance is the BEST

BY ERIK THURMOND

Slow Journalism

BY ALEJANDRO GÓMEZ DUGAND
@ VOL 14 ON SEP 15, 2016

A very speedy Laura Galindo presented 070 on behalf of Alejandro Gómez Dugand. On the Dewey Decimal library classification, 070 is the number for News media, journalism, and publishing. 070 is an independent on-line magazine covering all sorts of subjects in a slow pace, which contrary to the news frenzy of these days, allows each story to grow into a complete, facts-based, meaningful narrative.

Biking in Bangkok, Hand-Made Jewelry, and the Return of PKN Santiago

Presentations What's it like riding a bike in Bangkok? As Greg Jorgensen's presentation (from PKN Bangkok Vol. 5) will reveal, it's all about the traffic. Pep Joan Tugores is a local jewelry handcrafter and in his presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mallorca Vol. 1), he talks about how he learned to make hand-made jewelry, and then shares a few of his recent projects. Posters Today's new addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster you see above for the upcoming PKN Santiago Vol. 3, which marks a relaunch for that city's series. The PKN is set for September 6 at Galpon CAC.  Photos Today we share a Flickr gallery of photos from PKN Uzice Vol. 2. Above, a look at some of the attendees, followed by two presenters.  Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, it's a slow start this week, with the first PKNs happening tomorrow night (August 22), in the form of PKN Cairns Vol. 5 and PKN Durban Vol. 8.

The Night I Saw a Sloth Explode

"We are 'Travel Collectors'. We don't collet things so much as ideas and knowledge of the places we go." In "The Night I Saw a Sloth Explode" from PechaKucha Night Westport Vol. 1, self-proclaimed tech geek and globetrotting mom, Mary Luvera shares the story that she collected with her family on a recent trip to Costa Rica. While researching Costa Rica and plans for what to do there, the family became captivated by sloths which would become one of the trip's main focus ...and eventual highlight (no pun intended.)

The Beginning of Memory

"The story of Buffalo is inextricably linked to the notion of memory. That memory is now in danger." In The Beginning of Memory from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, Spanish architect and academic Miguel Guitart remembers the importance of Buffalo's signature past and visual legacy that has made the city unique, and compels the audience to slow down enough to observe it for themselves, together on a quest to find it's soul once more. In this beautiful poetic performance, he shares a series of ephemeral photos of the city, titled "Americana" with music by Philippe Rombi and excerpts of Laurie Anderson's "The Beginning of Memory", illustrating that despite PechaKucha's fixed format, presentations can take all forms.

Presentation Ground Rules

Often times, meetings and the presentations that drive them, are boring, slow and rarely effective. With PechaKucha presentations you are in for insightful experiences and ideas from our #ldnont community. Here are some gentle reminders for presenters: Your final presentation must include 20 images. Notice that we say "images" and not "slides." Successful PechaKucha 20x20 presentations usually have images that complement what the speaker is saying, as opposed to a bunch of bullets and text on the slide. Each image will be displayed for exactly 20 seconds. The images automatically progress during the presentation. Speakers have no control over the advancement of the slides. We can help you with setting that up! Is this a sales thing? Absolutely not. In fact, PechaKucha Night is a nonprofit organization. We just love chitchat.No sales pitches. Is PechaKucha Night family-friendly? Yes! Each presentation is suitable for all ages. Please no inappropriate images or language. Remember, you will be presenting in a public space that is open to people of all ages. Audiences may include everyone from high school students to retired. If you wouldn’t say it in front of your Maman, don’t say it in front of your PechaKucha family. No political campaigning. No preaching. Deadline to submit presentation is always 7 days prior to the event. With all this focus on the mechanical aspect of your presentation it's easy to forget to really talk to your audience. Make contact, converse, be warm, and be human. It's one of the more intimate presentation styles and formats. Have fun!
