The Architecture of Entitlement

@ VOL 18 ON MAY 18, 2017

In a whirlwind PechaKucha presentation, architect Emma Fuller discusses a history of language and the city plan - how entitlement has created a new architectural tool for the powerful to dismantle the collective and empower the singular. See examples from Mussolini to Trump in this 20x20 !

Emma Fuller is an associate with Diane Lewis Architect PC and teaches architectural history and theory at Pratt Institute. She received her degree from the Cooper Union. Her work addresses architecture as art and memory. This is expanded upon in published essays, exhibitions and architectural projects including the "Richmond as a Work of Art" series, the IPA fellowship, the Green Ward and Michelangelo-La Tourette papers, and the Nebo House.

Depicting the Circle Hunt

@ VOL 3 ON SEP 28, 2013

Artist Carrie Walker is inspired by historical circle hunts - in which hunters would form a circle around a large portion of land and slowly close in, killing every animal they came across. Carrie found rich imagery in descriptions of these events, and had a desire to depict the now forgotten animals. She embarks on a road trip to recreate scenes which she skillfully translates onto paper.

Fluting, Anyone? Smoky Mountain Flute Circle

@ VOL 16 ON AUG 06, 2015

The Native American Flute is a fascinating instrument that creates exquisite music. It is used and has been used by Native American people in different ways, such as in their prayers, festivities, weaved with their beautiful stories, or for boys to woo girls.

The Knoxville/Townsend area is very lucky to be home of the Smoky Mountains Flute Circle. The SMFC has hosted two back to back National level events, the 2013 and 2014 Renaissance of the North American Flute Foundation annual gatherings. It all started with Knoxville Area Cherokee Flute Player Randy McGinnis who founded the SMFC.

Columbus and I Make Discoveries

@ VOL 1 ON OCT 12, 2015

Catherine Onyemelukwe joined the Peace Corps in 1962, when it was a new organization, and Nigeria, where she was assigned, was newly independent. 

Catherine's PechaKucha presentation on Columbus Day is connected to her memoir, Nigeria Revisited My Life and Loves Abroad, published in 2014. She shares her discoveries connected to Columbus and European "discoveries" of new land. Many Native Americans believe Columbus Day should be abolished, saying that to honor a man who "ushered in genocide against indigenous peoples as well as the transatlantic slave trade,” is not reason for a holiday. In 24 years living in Nigeria, Catherine discovered non-Western traditions that are rich and meaningful, just as Native American traditions are. Some were denied validity by British colonizers based on the Doctrine of Discovery, just as Native American's rights were denied by that Doctrine, first by the American colonizers and then U.S. leaders.

PKN Columbus Vol. 8

PechaKucha Night was back in Columbus last month for an eighth edition. Held at Landmark's Gateway Theater and with a superb turnout of more than 225, here's a report from that city's organizer Lindsay Kenzig, including quotes from some of the presenters: First of all, we had an amazing event. The energy was great and we had one of our best attended events -- about 225 people, but I think we lost count in the rush at the door. We had an amazing variety of presenters who all had unique things to talk about. Prior to the event, we had several articles written, which helped draw a crowd that had previously been unaware of the event in our city. Our first presenter, Helen Hoffelt, had this to say about her photography: "For us to rise, we have to let go. What weighs us down has to be left behind. Sometimes, what is left behind can be compassionately incorporated into who we are. As we fly, we create a new sense ourselves. We need to pay attention to what our lives teach us. When we do that I believe we all can fly." Cyrus Fire, an artist, said: "It was a one of the most exciting nights of my life." He suggests PKN organizers work with presenters hands-on ahead of the event (for example, helping presenters with breathing techniques). Zaineb Alani presented her work as an Iraqi poet. Her poetry was amazing and very moving. She says that PechaKucha was "a unique opportunity to voice an insight into the 'other side' in a setting that greatly enhanced the content of my delivery." Matt Meindl talked about his film Digital Underpants: "It's a manic stop-motion animated collage made from hundreds of real teenage love notes." On PKN, he "liked the diverse presentations but also the general atmosphere that made it OK to be honest, vulnerable, creative, and silly." Other presenters included: Matt Carbone, an architectural photographer; Matt Meindl, a filmmaker who presented 20 short film clips; Artie Isaac who talked about the democratization of public speaking and his new website SpeakerSite; Reza Reyazi, an urban planner speaking about Columbus' oldest neighborhood Franklinton; Walker Evans, who spoke about his work on the site ColumbusUnderground; artist John Sherman Lathram III, who is working on a new book about body modification; Corey Aumiller, an artist who presented "20 Irrational Fears"; and Kristy Yosick, a master chocolatier. The press coverage mentioned appeared in Columbus Alive and Metromix. PKN Columbus Vol. 9 is set for May 21. Below, a few images from Vol. 8.

Why I'm a Total Bastard

Yesterday we laid out an invitation for everyone to send in their PechaKucha-related stories, and here's one from Matthew Dyer, who was a presenter at PKN Columbus Vol. 12 in February of last year. Matthew also recorded his presentation -- "Why I'm a Total Bastard" (but in essence, why he's not) -- to put on his site with the visuals, so go and have a listen. I was a little nervous to present a story that was so personal, and going on last that evening I felt like I was headlining! Having my mom & dad in the audience, who braved a two hour drive in the snow to be there, was a spectacular feeling. People seemed receptive, and I think (hope) they left that cold night a little warmer having heard the story I wanted to share.

Entrepreneur and graphic designer Gustavo Garcia uses his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10) to teach us 10 important life lessons, regarding work, jobs, life, career, and more.

Calendar It's a quiet Wednesday with no PKNs happening tonight, but tomorrow (July 19) you can look forward to St. Albert's very first PKN, as well as a special edition PKN in Chicago (more details in this post).
