Time and Tide
BY JO ATHERTON
@ VOL 7
ON SEP 27, 2016
Artist Jo Atherton highlights the diversity of plastic objects washing ashore on the British coastline, and how the ubiquity of this material enables us to reinterpret stories of our time. Millions of years ago, fuelled by sunlight, marine plankton flourished and then settled on the ocean floor, slowly transforming into oil. This same oil is used to produce the endless plastic objects that dominate our everyday lives. When inked and printed, plastic flotsam fragments bear a stark resemblance to the rich diversity of microscopic marine life - a worrying and ironic connection to a beautiful natural process.

Beach Front PKN in Tenerife
The Spanish island of Tenerife will soon be hosting its very first edition of PechaKucha Night (August 21), and based on photos I've seen (above, and also on PKN Tenerife's city page) of the Monkey Beach venue, it looks like attendees are in for a terrific outdoor evening of presentations.
David Foster is a creative from West Michigan, and as you'll see in his hilarious presentation, he's got a thing for beards. Let him guide you through the complexities of beards in today's society. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Grand Rapids Vol. 2.

Slides and Beer: Can't Beat 'em!
Our friends in Nebraska have written a piece about PKN Omaha in the Omaha Magazine, here's a little excerpt from it: Guests in Omaha pack places like Blue Sushi and The Slowdown to capacity in order to hear these sometimes witty, sometimes inspiring, sometimes awkward, but always highly individual presentations. Slides can be confusing, occasionally distasteful, and often beautiful. Speakers can and do discuss the design of anything and everything, including fashion, architecture, pottery, video games, prosthetics, car overhauls, and Native American heritage. Over the past five years that Omaha has been an official PechaKucha city, 179 people have braved the intimidation of public speaking to add their voices to the quarterly event, with anywhere from eight to a dozen speakers a night. To see the full article, head on over to Omaha Magazine. (photo credit: Bill Sitzmann)
