A Wall and A Column: 2 Projects

@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"A wall and a column...what they have in common is an interest in looking at the cultural agency of traditional building materials and their ability to speak."

In A Wall and A Column: 2 Projects from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, architect and University at Buffalo Peter Reyner Banham Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor Ang Li presents a pair of site specific installations that explore the cultural agency of vernacular building materials. Horror Vacui is an installation in Lisbon, Portugal that examines the ability of building facades to “speak” through the medium of the Portuguese “azulejo” - hand-painted ceramic tiles often depicting scenes from historic or civic events. The piece explores the narrative potential of bricks and mortar within contemporary image sharing and crowdsourcing platforms. No Frills is an installation in Buffalo, New York that stems out of an interest in the industrialized production of terracotta in the 19th century as a new kind of ornamental language. In a semi-abandoned Chevrolet Factory by the architect Albert Kahn, a 13-foot column interrupts the existing grid of the assembly floor,  acting as a bridge between the vast scale of obsolete industry and the human scale of the architectural ornament.

Water for Life

We're going to end this week's postings on the blog with two new presentations on the site, both recorded at PechaKucha Night in London Vol. 4. First up is Simon Taylor and his presentation that covers the exhibition he designed for the "Water for Life" project, in the building you see pictured in the above photo.


Clean Water for Life

Clean water may not be a luxury for us, but it is for many. Bradley Pierik (of Twothirds Water) has been studying the systems by which third-world countries purify their water to make it safe for human consumption. When waterborne diseases account for the majority of hospitalizations, a filtration system can literally be a lifesaver. In "Clean Water for Life" from PKN Vancouver Vol. 28, Bradley goes into depth on his research and a prototype filter he's made while performing outreach in countries all over. 


Brave Wave

Alex Aniel and Mohammed Taher are the founders of Brave Wave, a Japan-based music label that specializes in game-related music and soundtracks. In this presentation, recorded live at the 2nd edition of Kyoto-based indie game festival BitSummit MMXIV,  Alex walks us through the evolution of the label -- from its initial form as Koopa Soundworks -- highlighting various releases and artists the two have worked with.

Krisanne Baker, ecological artist, water activist, and art educator, presents “Hydrologic: Where Water, Art, & Activism Meet” at PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 21 in an effort to raise awareness on behalf of water. She talks about about her thoughts and actions, and the cycles between water's inhabitants and their recipients.

“There are 800 million people who lack access to water, and 2.5 billion without a toilet.” Shilpa Alva co-founded and directs Surge: an organisation focused on bringing safe water and sanitation to those in need. In “Providing Safe Water” from PKN Chicago Vol. 30 Shilpa speaks on the creation of Surge, the plight of those without clean water or plumbing, and how she and her colleagues are enacting positive change.


ABC Coffee and the Third Wave

“Third wave is not just about beards and blue bottles — it’s about the celebration of coffee.” Alvin Cheung is the Chief Coffee Officer at ABC Coffee, a Tokyo-based subscription service for organic coffee beens. In “ABC Coffee and the Third Wave” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 120, he extols the beauty and benefits of consuming lightly roasted, single-origin, locally sold coffee beans.

Jaká voda, taký mlýn - třetí PKN ve Vodňanech

    Třetí vodňanská PechaKucha Night má jako téma mlýn a vodu   V pátek 17. června od 20 hodin se ve Vodňanech uskuteční již třetí PechaKucha Night. Tentokrát bude mít téma Jaká voda, taký mlýn, a bude se konat stylově v areálu bývalého Broků mlýna, dnes střediska MEVPIS ve Vodňanech.   Kulturní spolek Vodňany žijou připravil pro návštěvníky osm vystoupení a lidé zažijí i jedno literární překvapení.   Každý z pozvaných přednášejících bude hovořit o tématu mlýna a vody ze své perspektivy, takže třeba spisovatelka z blízké Putimi Jaroslava Pixová popíše svoji cestu k psaní o mlýnech. Sama uvádí, že jejím "tématem bude to, proč jsem se rozhodla zabývat mlynářskou tématikou, jakým způsobem hledám informace, čím mě tato práce obohacuje, jaký byl důvod založení nakladatelství a něco v krátkosti o vodňanských mlýnech, jejich četnosti a hlavně mlýně řečeném Na Valše."   Českobudějovický architekt Miroslav Vodák, který se jako člen spolku CBArchitektura věnuje popularizaci a propagaci architektury veřejných staveb a veřejného prostoru a je členem Komise pro architekturu a územní plánování města České Budějovice, pohovoří o mlýnech z pohledu architekta.   Rozhodně jedním z nejzajímavějších povídání bude to od zástupců Světa podle Jakuba. Tento spolek vznikl v roce 2010 v Plzni z, jak uvádějí samotní členové, "vnitřní naléhavé potřeby zakládajících členůpracovat a snažit se pomáhat v oblasti projektů, které v sobě spojují nejen hudbu, ale i ostatní umělecké obory." Zatím největším projektem Světa podle Jakuba je hudební oslava vody z pera mladých skladatelů nazvaná 5 ŘEK/ 5 PRAMÍNKŮ.   Z Pardubic přijede projekt Offcity. Jeho zástupci o sobě říkají: "Každé město má místa, která stojí tak trochu stranou pozornosti. Nemusí být ani na periferii města jako spíš na periferii zájmu. S Offcity se taková místa a fenomény spjaté s městským prostorem snažíme odhalovat a zkoumat. Poslední dobou nás k sobě stáhla voda.” U lidí z Pardubic to dává smysl, když uvážíme, že v tomto městě se stékají dvě řeky, Labe a Chrudimka.   Vystupovat na třetí vodňanské PechaKucha Night bude i architekt Patrik Líbal. Ten nastíní, jaká je pozice mlýna na cestě mezi technikou a architekturou.   O svých malých i velkých bojích promluví také Martin Kotas z pražské Kavárny Mlýnská a Patrik Janka, který získal budovu mlýna a teď uvažuje, co s ním.   V prostředí MEVPISu nebudou chybět ani zástupci tohoto střediska, ti pohovoří mimo jiné i o nové interaktivní Stezce úhoře, která si mezi dětmi z Vodňan a okolí získala rychle velkou oblibu. Děti i dospělí se na ní dozví, jak těžkou cestu má úhoř z jižních Čech do Sargasového moře, kde se rozmnožuje.   PechaKucha Night je unikátní, jednoduchý a atraktivní formát: každý vystupující má připravených dvacet obrázků a ke každému z nich mluví dvacet vteřin. Celkově tedy stráví před plátnem necelých sedm minut. Toto časové omezení vede k tomu, že i lidé, kteří se vyjadřují dlouze a složitě, se tady musí snažit své myšlenky zhutnit a zprůhlednit. Návštěvníci se tak dozví mnoho zajímavého ve velice krátkém čase.   PKN, která pochází z Tokia a její název znamená v japonštině “povídání”, se koná ve více než 900 městech po celém světě, ve Vodňanech byla poprvé v listopadu minulého roku.  A v pátek 17. června se tu PKN uskuteční potřetí. První dva večery, které se konaly v bývalé synagoze a v sokolovně, vždy navštívilo více než sto lidí. Stejně jako v minulých dvou případech i tentokrát je vstupné dobrovolné a lidé si upomínkové vstupenky mohou vyzvednout předem ve vodňanském infocentru. Vybrané peníze budou použity pro pořádání dalších kulturních akcí.
