PechaKucha Workshop with the Swedish Police

Last week Jesper Larsson, PechaKucha ambassador of Gothenburg traveled to Stockholm together with "struktör" David Stiernholm to arrange a PechaKucha workshop with the Swedish Police. The participants from the Swedish National Police Board were first given an introduction lecture about PechaKucha and the 20x20 format, along with tips and ideas on how to find images – legally of course – and how to go about creating and preparing a presentation. They then had only an hour to prepare their own presentations on subjects relating to their respective work, after which the presentations were presented to the entire group. Despite the short time frame we got to experience thoughtful, creative, useful and fun presentations. This both showed how much a group of committed people are able to do in only an hour, as well as the power of the 20x20 format. And the participants were also happy about the workshop. In a follow-up email our contact person wrote: "Many of us got really inspired by the PechaKucha workshop. A colleague went straight home and remade two presentations she was giving the following week." Bonus: After the workshop we also got to check out the police archive with old police cars and equipment. An old Porsche 911 police car. A promotional poster for the Sig Sauer pistol used by the Swedish police. Old ballistics test looking like contemporary pop art Some sort of functional fashion piece that had something to do with handling lead. Below, the PechaKucha storyboard.

The Thread Wrapping Machine

Anton Alvarez is an artist, but he doesn't just create new works of art; he has developed an entirely new method of assembly.  In this edition of Presentation of the Day, (from a special PechaKucha "Sweden in Style" event held during Tokyo Designers Week 2012) Alvarez shows off his invention: a large ring-shaped device which wraps polyester threads coated with wet glue around anything fed through the ring while it spins. This technique allows for two objects (he often uses pieces of wood) to be joined while avoiding the use of traditional joints. He has developed a new craft of sorts, and as he says, "I'm a beginner at this, but I'm also the best at it -- there are no other people working at this." His machine grants him freedom from manufacturing institutions and relies heavily on improvisation. Each piece is unique, spontaneous, colorful, and has a sort of dynamic personality about it. At the moment Alvarez has produced mostly furniture, but he hopes to iterate on the scale of his device and push his creations to an architectural level.

Drink Wine, Eat Chocolate

"Getting more pleasure, and enjoying [life] more, together." Good motto. Contemporary Swedish glass designer Åsa Jungnelius is interested in what is considered genuine or fake, and how value is created around an object. In "Drink Wine, Eat Chocolate" from a special Swedish Style x PechaKucha edition of PKN Tokyo (Vol. 66), we see that Åsa often uses stereotypes as a language that informs her design theory, and challenges the conventional meaning of these formulae.
