A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space
BY JOANNA GILLESPIE
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
"This is my 6-minute memoir. A mediation on impermanence."
In A Brief Memoir of Architecural Space from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, independent arts consultant and co-organizer of PechaKucha Buffalo, Joanna Gillespie, delivers a meditation on twenty of the fifty places she has lived since birth. From Victorian-era structures in Buffalo, NY and San Francisco, CA, to the wilds of the 1970's California coast, to modern and efficient rural Japan, to a Postmodern art utopia in Maine, and beyond, Gillespie recounts a particular memory from each space. Through all of the temporal landscapes we find ourselves in, Gillespie concludes, "We forge on, either clumsily or assuredly. We keep on keeping on." Even if we move fifty times.

Nine PKN Beginner Mistakes
Struggling while putting together your PechaKucha Night presentation? Software developer Hamlet D'Arcy presented at the inaugural PKN Minneapolis back in April, and shares this list of what he considers to be "9 Beginner Mistakes."

Poster for PKN Istanbul Vol. 11
PechaKucha Night in Istanbul Vol. 11 is coming up in September, and here's more on the event from organizer Nurten Meriçer:On September 15, 2011, PechaKucha Night Istanbul will take to the stage for the 11th time. The theme of the night, "Who Rules the World? Games and Politics" was chosen because PKN will be collaborating with two headline events in September. The long-awaited IFCA 12 Istanbul Biennial is "untitled" in 2011, but with a broad subtitle. The Istanbul Biennial, as well as formally innovative and politically outspoken, will this time focus on works of art that examine the relationship between art and politics. The main source of inspiration for artistic production of the Biennial is the Cuban-American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1957-1996) and his works. PKN Istanbul Vol. 11 will be one of the opening activities of the Biennial. During the same period, the PKN Istanbul venue, YEM Building Information Center, will be hosting a dazzling exhibition, "Space Invaders: Video Game Art and Environment." PKN Istanbul will invite artists from this exhibition to speak about the production of video and console games. The PKN Istanbul audience is ready to meet and greet gamers ruling the world and rulers playing games on the very same stage on September 15. Stay tuned!
