BY LINDA DOYLE
@ VOL 10
ON DEC 02, 2015
Linda’s talk is called Signalling Home. It is about the intersection of wireless signals and concepts of home. It looks at examples from technology and art in which the presence of absence of signals construct notions of home. It draws on abstract concepts as well as specific advances in wireless technologies.

From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines
BY BART KNOLS
@ VOL 31
ON SEP 07, 2016
"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?"
One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it?
In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols idiscusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, October 10th, 2016.

Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority
BY PAUL VANOUSE
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
“I’m a bio media artist. And what that means is I work self-reflexively, with the tools and technologies of the life sciences.”
In Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Professor of Art at the University at Buffalo, Paul Vanouse, provides an overview of his work as a bio media artist. As Director of the newly created Coalesce Center for Biological Art at the University at Buffalo, Vanouse works with artists and philosophers and people who wouldn’t normally have a direct connection to do create work in a life sciences laboratory, and is actively engaged with Coalesce’s artist residency program. Vanouse’s own work has recently focused on DNA fingerprinting, removing the inherent layers of authority from DNA with an interest in the very visual representation of DNA. His recent projects, Latent Figure Protocol and Ocular Revision use molecular biology techniques to challenge “genome-hype” and to confront issues surrounding DNA fingerprinting.
Printing The Human Body
BY ANTHONY HOLMES
@ VOL 7
ON SEP 27, 2016
"You can put this on your lab, press print, go for lunch, come back and have some tissue."
In "Printing The Human Body" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 7, Dr. Anthony Holmes gives us an insight in to 3D bioprinting – a truly disruptive emerging technology. By enabling us to print human tissues and organs, it has the potential to revolutionise the way we understand and treat human health and disease and address the incredible shortfall of organs suitable for transplant in the globally.

Smart & Connected: Management of Thermal Extremes
BY ZOÉ HAMSTEAD
@ VOL 19
ON MAR 14, 2018
"What is the connective tissue that we need—both technologically and socially—to create adaptive strategies that are greater than the sum of our parts?"
In Smart & Connected from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, Assistant Professor in the University at Buffalo Department of Urban & Regional Planning, Zoé Hamstead, describes a linked practice-research endeavor that addresses how cities manage heat and cold events. Localized differences in exposure and coping capacity impact the effectiveness of public agencies, organizations and individuals to respond to episodic thermal events. Since thermal vulnerability is shaped by complex interactions across environmental, social and technological variability, addressing this challenge will require integration of traditionally siloed disciplinary knowledge and agency management strategies. As part of a National Science Foundation-funded Smart & Connected Communities (S&CC) planning grant, collaborators in Buffalo/Erie County, New York and Tempe/Maricopa County, Arizona are working together to build capacity for integrating research with practice for managing thermal extremes.

Turning Air Into Water, Surfboard/Scene Design, and the Carrot Pavillion
Presentations Richard Groden is one of the founders of Island Sky, and in his presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 15), he talks about its project to extract water from air and turn it into pure drinking water for areas where water is scarce or contaminated. Their goal is not just to produce drinkable water, but also to educate people on the important of sustainability in developing countries. Martín Várbaro is a plastic material artist who started his career by designing surfboards in Argentina, and later in more Latin American countries, including Peru and Brazil. As this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mar Del Plata Vol. 2) reveals, he also works as a scene decorator for theaters, museums, and public centers, and is now producing work in South America and Europe. Posters We have no new posters to share on the Tumblr blog today, but that gives us a chance to highlight the beach-friendly poster from last week's PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7. Photos and report We've got galleries for two firsts to share (in Castellon and Augsburg), but let us also point you to this blog post from Core77 about a recent PechaKucha event in London, part of the International Conference on Designing Food and Designing for Food. It was produced by PKN Brussels organizer Alok Nandi, and the photo above reveals the intriguing "Carrot Pavillion."

When Art and Science Collide
“I wanted to learn the beautiful mechanism of the universe, nature, and life. So i studied biology and chemistry in my university.
