Survival = Shelter

BY RICHARD POTESTIO
@ VOL 15 ON FEB 12, 2015

“Rather than research the artifact, I thought about its purpose and its use. I asked the google about survival and let me tell you, it talked back to me”

Shelters are essential for life. In Survival = Shelter from PechaKucha Night Portland’s 15th volume, speaker Richard Potestio discusses the history of tents as a catalyst which sparked a search for information on shelter and survival. Development, innovation, and usage, of tents as not just a temporary, but also as a permanent form of shelter. In the case of the later, Potestio discusses what is needed to change the status quo.
