Collaborative Fiction Writing: We do it, We are Somewhat Crazy
BY CHRIS PAULS
@ VOL 11
ON NOV 20, 2014
Getting two people together to write a book is like getting three people together to make a baby.” We didn’t say that, Doug Moe said that. We can’t speak to the baby thing, but we can tell you how we pull off the writing.

@ VOL 120
ON DEC 16, 2014
Yukinari Hisayama and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture take us on a tour of their latest project, the Tsutaya T-Site shopping center in Shonan, which expands on the idea behind the original Tsutaya T-Site found in Daikanyama, also designed by Klein Dytham architecture.

L’Invention du Goût - The Invention of Taste
BY VIKTORIA VON HOFFMANN
@ VOL 1
ON NOV 20, 2014
Discuter des plaisirs de la table est une activité commune et valorisée aujourd’hui, liée de près à l’esprit de convivialité. Mais contrairement à ce que l’on pourrait croire, il n’a pas toujours été aussi aisé de discuter de nourriture et de goût dans le passé. En explorant l’histoire du discours sur le goût et la cuisine, Viktoria von Hoffmann montre les rapports ambigus que les sociétés occidentales ont de longue date entretenu avec le sens du goût, et cela bien avant la naissance du christianisme et du péché de gourmandise.

Poster for PKN Athens Vol. 2
PechaKucha Night returns to Athens next week (Friday, May 8) for Vol. 2, to be held at an old t-shirt factory in the city's center. As for the lineup, expect to see two architects, a chef, a biologist, two artists, an industrial designer, one opera team, a businessman, and a motion design company. Above, the beautifully illustrated poster for the event.
PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 2
PechaKucha Night in Champaign-Urbana Vol. 2 may have been held back in January, but hey, it's never too late to take a look at how an event went, and we're thankful to organizer Christina Tapp for sending us this report on the terrific event they put together. First, start by checking out this pre-show stop-motion video that fellow organizer Anastasia Tumanova created for the event (and here's a link to a pre-show video that was created for Vol. 1). All of the photos were taken Wallo Villacorta, Chris Perardi, and Jason Bentley. Champaign-Urbana’s second PechaKucha Night, held in January at the Canopy Club, boasted a vibrant crowd of over 400 people with 12 awesome presentations and one rockin' emcee. It was an explosion of creativity, from graphic designers and digital arts to silkscreening and book design; from a world traveler and a photographer to sustainable farmers; and from hiStories and a local charcuterie maker (who brought some pickled tongue to share!) to mad scientists and a bubbleologist! Kicking off the celebration with videos by Anastasia Tumanova and Jason Bentley, PK Vol. 2 also boasted an artist in the audience who decided to sketch the presenters in 6 minutes and 40 seconds while enjoying the show, along with an after party with two bands and pizza (mmmmm!) Starting the show with a little lesson in pronouncing PechaKucha, environment designer and emcee Andy Warfel (he was also a fab PK Vol. 1 presenter) held the night's event together seamlessly, with his laid-back sense of humor. Paul Young discussed the challenges of balancing work and play for creativity and fun. His philosophy? Play evolves into work and work becomes fun. The result is a more fulfilling life. Wes Jarrell & Leslie Cooperband, the proud owners of Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery, talked about making artisan and farmstead goat and sheep milk cheeses, raising organic fruits and hosting all-local foods dinners on their farm—in a poem! Kelly Searsmith showed us how contemporary artists use emergent digital media to inspire a deepened sense of humanity and social connection. William Gillespie & Cristy Scoggins, writers, designers and pop-culture addicts who run the independent publishing house Spineless Books and host the radio program Rock Geek FM, talked about how the end of commercial publishing equals the beginning of book art. Bryan Heaton shocked the crowd with his storytelling photographs that attempt to exploit the multi-layered meaning of images. Theodore Gray, author of Mad Science: Experiments You Can Do at Home–But Probably Shouldn’t, along with photographer Nick Mann, wowed the audience with tales of mad science and the elements. Laurence Mate, a local charcuterie maker discussed Abligurition n (ab- away, off + ligurire to be lickerish), highlighting the cultural ways humans use the tongue—for speech, expression and repression. Laurence even brought samples of pickled tongue to share! (Don't knock it until you've tried it...) Amy Lin & Eric Shine, working as one Borg-like entity of creativity, presented on hiStories—10 factual and craaayayayaaaaaaazy stories from the pages of history. Viewers discretion was advised—it contained scenes that may not have been suitable for sensitive audiences, including screaming guitars, Microsoft Paint bloodbaths and maggots wearing clothes. Jillian Nickell took us along on her adventures in silk screening and t-shirt illustration. Keihly Moore gave us peek into the lives of the Roma: a traveling story of a traveling people living on the margins of European society. Doug Burgett, a graphic designer by trade, an artist at heart and an astronaut in his dreams, captivated the audience with stories of misunderstood artistic endeavors and creative pursuits. Mark Peckham passionately spoke about coming to the realization that it's his true calling to bring joy to the world through the uncanny power of bubbles, which magically filled the air after his presentation! Keep an eye out for presentations posted from Vol. 2 that will continue to help raise money for Haiti. Our next event will take place on Friday, April 16 at the the Canopy Club as part of this year's Boneyard Arts Festival.
PKN Helsinki Vol. 8
PechaKucha Night in Helsinki Vol. 8 was held back in January, and was organized in conjunction with the University of Helsinki, with speakers including a mix of both scientists and creatives. We've highlighted a few photos from the event in this post, but there's much more to see in this Flickr photoset. Thanks also to co-organizer Anni Puolakka for the descriptions of each presentation. Below, a look at the presenters who took part. Tapio Vapaasalo, Professor of Graphic Design, to talk about 20 negative things (including 'Deadline') that are integral as well as essential in a designer's work. His presentation was purely typographical. Timo Vesala, Professor of Meteorology, to talk about his passion for movies (he was wearing a t-shirt with Jack Nicholson in The Shining) and unpretentiousness as well as about why he likes making scientific research (starting with chaotic piles of paper and and finishing with one neat document where it's all figured out). Ilkka Niiniluoto, Chancellor of University of Helsinki, to talk about the internationalisation of the University of Helsinki. He showed images of his travels all around the world and gave the audience a good idea about the highly global nature of the world's university network. Toni Kauppila, Architect and Lecturer in Spatial Design, to talk about his sources of inspiration: Japanese information graphics, human traces of life in the city and people's movements in a space. Sampsa Vanhatalo, Docent of Clinical Neurophysiology, to talk about the development and protection of premature babies' brains. Among others he showed a picture of his own baby, which became a natural object of home-based research when born (with sensors attached all over the child's head). Meiju Niskala, Performance artist and writer, to talk about serendipity in her life and art: e.g. how she chose the name for her dog (by putting a list of names on the floor and seeing where the puppy pees) and how she found a spouse (by leaving a note between a library book – and getting response). Pekka Timonen, Cultural Director of Helsinki, to talk about the designation of Helsinki for World Design Capital of 2012. His presentation implied that design should belong to everyone and take place everywhere in the city, and that the city of Helsinki is strongly committed to take things forward concerning this. Teemu Leinonen, Professor of New Media Design and Learning, to talk about his heros Steward Brand (who made the Whole Earth Catalog) and Douglas Engelbart (best known for inventing the computer mouse). Kari Enqvist, Professor of Cosmology, to talk about how we can look at history by looking at heavenly bodies. He was also just about to tell us the meaning of all life and universe as the time ran out!
Laundry Lines and T-Shirts, the Bike Kitchen, and Posters Galore
Presentations In this presentation (from PKN Genoa Vol. 1), Gregory Melitonov talks about his SOTTO project, that incorporates typical Italian laundry lines and t-shirts to send a message to the community at large. The Bike Kitchen is more than just a self-help bike garage where you can bring your bike and learn how to repair it yourself. As you'll learn in this presentation (in German, from PKN Augsburg Vol. 1) by Stefan Sohnle, the Bike Kitchen is in fact just like a family. Posters We've just added quite a few posters to the Tumblr blog, and so today instead of just highlighting one, we'll include a few of them in our daily post. First up, above, is the poster for tonight's PKN Rockford Vol. 2. Also uploaded today are the following (some of which you'll find below): PKN Oaxaca Vol. 2 and Vol. 7, PKN Cancun Vol. 1, PKN Panama Vol. 3, PKN Wakefield Vol. 2 and Vol. 4, PKN Barcelona Vol. 12, PKN Dnipropetrovsk Vol. 2, and PKN Taos Vol. 2. Calendar There are two events on tap for tonight (July 24): PKN Halifax Vol. 11 and the previously mentioned PKN Rockford Vol. 2. Tomorrow is a busy night, and on top of our PKN Tokyo Vol. 94 (our last PKN of the summer), you can look for the following events: PKN Derby Vol. 6, PKN Znojmo Vol. 1, PKN Helena Vol. 2, and PKN Providence Vol. 40.
Dayton in the News
The PKN Dayton series gets coverage in the Middletown Journal. Don’t be intimidated by the name — or the fact that you can’t pronounce it. A PechaKucha night offers an unusual opportunity to learn a little bit about a variety of intriguing subjects in a relaxed environment — all presented by everyday people who are passionate about the topics they’ve chosen. Read the full article here.
The Hijacked American Dream
"No one ever laid on their deathbed and wished they had acquired more stuff." In The Hijacked American Dream, Joel Larsgaard (at PechaKucha Atlanta, Vol. 20) speaks on what Americans currently define as "The American Dream." What was once defined by James T. Adams as a dream of a "land that would be better, richer, and fuller for everyone" has become twisted, and nigh unrecognizable today. He delves into the culture of consumerism that he compares to drug use, "a brief high, followed by a crash."
Kevin Byrd's Failures
Some people just can't seem to catch a break! Failure extraordinaire Kevin Byrd shows us some of his ideas that just did not work out. In "Kevin Byrd's Failures" from PKN Atlanta Vol. 20 we see that one was a photo-sticker art project, another was a new T-shirt design. He also tried his luck as a DJ and a dancer. Watch to see what happened with these and more.
Exley on Lucas
No, it's not a report about PechaKucha, but we love seeing PechaKucha Night Chicago organizer Peter Exley in this CBS local news report about George Lucas' upcoming museum, as he sports his "20 images x 20 seconds" PechaKucha t-shirt. Watch the full report here.
