Adventures through Bicycling
BY JAMES NORD
@ VOL 1
ON AUG 14, 2014
Brothers, James and Dylan Nord grew up together going on adventures, riding their bikes, building forts, and playing pretend. A few decades later they were still riding bikes, racing them now, but had lost the adventure and childish fun of their youth that they couldn't forget.
They decided to create something that would allow them to step outside of their modern adult lives and experience the unabashed freedom and thrill they knew growing up, but had lost as adults. And so Deux North was born as a way to say, "I'm still young."

Lukas Birk is an Austrian artist currently based in Beijing, and at the most recent PechaKucha Night in Bejing (Vol. 48), he talked about his "Kafkanistan" project. From PKN Beijing organizer Alessandra Henderson: On February 28th at Vol. 48 Pecha Kucha Beijing, Lukas Birk presented to the crowd his project "Kafkanistan." Over the course of three years, artist Lukas Birk and anthropologist Sean Foley traveled to Afghanistan as tourists in one of the most publicized war torn areas. In Birk's words: "... it all started with an email sent to me by anthropologist Sean Foley asking if I wanted to join him exploring the world of tourism in conflict zones around Pakistan and Afghanistan. Our first 4 week trip turned into a three year project resulting in a book, three films, and a multimedia exhibition." You can find out more about the project here. Below, a few images from the presentation.

Big Bird Gets Boing Boinged
That presentation by Mike Dickison we posted about yesterday? Well, it appears that A LOT of you like it, to the tune of almost 18,000 views already, and counting. We won't take all -- or even any -- credit for that though, as it's quite evident that a mention by Cory Doctorow on Boing Boing is really what led the charge, and for that we of course thank Cory for helping to spread the word about Mike's great presentation.

From Street Art to Hitchhiking, with a Bit of Birch Sap Drinking in Gothenburg
Here's our look at what's happening today in PechaKucha. Presentations We've got two new presentations on the site, one from Curitiba and one from St. Louis. In "The Street Is Alive" (in Portuguese), Jorge Galvao shares his graffiti work, and talks about his passion for street art, and then in "Hitchhiking for Sanity," Myles Dickason shares some of his hitchhiking adventures. Photos Here are today's event photos to take in, coming from a few of our PKN cities. Above, the scene at Providence's PKN Vol. 35, which was held back in February.

You can also find all Gothenburg presentations (in Swedish) on its YouTube channel. On April 24th, we arranged our Vol. 31 of PechaKucha Gothenburg with a great turnout! Annelie Hulthén used mobile photos to show some of the backsides of the life of a politician. Our new city architect showed aerial photos of Gothenburg to show how much space is wasted on cars instead of human beings. Peter Korn told us about digging and how to plant exotic plants on stony Swedish hillsides. Sushi chef José Seruda spoke about "omakase" and his idea of Scandinavian sushi using locally produced fish and seafood. Siv Burell talked about the language Esperanto which celebrates 125 years this year. Klara Hansson spoke about perma culture and what's edible within the city centre. Jeanette Fagerström told the story that led up to her opening a sewing machine café in Gothenburg (similar to an internet café but with sewing machines instead of computers). Helena Andersson, Sebastian Popescu & Evelina Valtersson finished of the evening with a presentation about their project "Bostadsrotation" (residential rotation) where people change housing and routines with another person for a couple of days. In the break, Klara Hansson and her friends served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants such as Garlic-mustard, Celandine, Common wood sorrel, Dandelion, Sorrel, Lady's Mantle, Daisy, Rowan Leaf, Ground elder and last but not least Lovage. They also served fresh natural birch sap. In this walkthrough video during the beer break, organizer Jesper Larsson tries out the birch sap and talks to former presenter Sebastian Näslund about it. We totally forgot to celebrate it, but the last presentation of the evening was actually #300 since we started! Links Looking for some interesting PechaKucha-related articles? We've got you covered.
