FACES of MUSTANG.

BY MARCUS BASTEL
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

Marcus Bastel is a London based photographer originally from Germany. He first came to the UK to study Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University, followed by a 2 year program at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. At the time he was very much a multi media artist but now concentrates on photography and the writing of short stories. He has exhibited internationally most recently in Tokyo as part of the Portrait Salon Group exhibition, in London at the 125 Magazine Show and Berlin at Cruise and Callas. His self-published 2010 book BUT WHERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE won honorable mention at the Photography Book Now competition. His work is perhaps best described as having a filmic quality, like a set getting ready for action. He refers to his work as being still movies, a narrative is implied and a hint of suspense introduced. His photography is represented by Millennium Images, Gallery Stock and Plainpicture. Some of his work can be found at the Diner dotted around London. He is currently working on a project called Faces of Mustang, which aims to connect with the owners of Ford Mustangs around the US, hear stories that make the relationship special and take a portrait of them alongside the legendary car. After 15 visits to the American Southwest and a curiosity to better understand America, he thought that the Mustang community would be a good starting point. America itself is in a state of commotion at present, which makes this a doubly interesting undertaking.

The project will present itself online, as a publication and exhibition, stories and portraits, with added location shots to instill a sense of place and in order to get this rolling is currently running his first kickstarter campaign.

For his writing he is represented by Anoukh Foerg Literary agency in Munich. He works in a supportive role at Central Saint Martins School of Art. Photographer, writer, traveller and inventor of tales, with a big passion for big landscapes, middle of nowhere places and long road trips. And having grown up with cowboys and Indians on the TV those places are more often than not located in the wild west.

Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World

BY KSENIA ZIZINA
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

"In a very fast paced world, I think film is a very good tool to learn how to stop for a moment and acknowledge it."

In Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 11Ksenia Zizina shares how shooting film makes her better at seeing and appreciating the world. Zizina is a designer with a passion for all things creative - architecture, photography, art, design, travel - you name it! She works in architectural practice and uses the rest of her time to make photographs. Photography has become second nature for Zizina. It is an essential part of her 'storytelling' which involves preparing the film stock, shooting, developing negatives, scanning and archiving. She considers all parts as one creative approach to photography.

Ksenia not only shares some of her beautiful images but also conveys her passion for all the small and interesting aspects of the world and how taking photos helps her appreciate these things. By the end, you will want to pull out your camera and take some snaps of your community, your environment, and your world!

" I have a kinda strange hobby. I had it since 2007..."

In "365 Postcards" from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15,  Andy Hoang spoke about Mailart365 - Mailart (a new term to you we assume) is a term which describes a piece of artwork made with the intention of sending it somewhere in the post. 365 is the number of days in a year.

Mailart 365 is a year-long project starting on December 1st, 2010, to make and send a piece of art in the post every day for a year. Artists attempt to make and send 365 pieces in the post, to whoever they please and while doing so, they’re posting up their efforts right here on Mailart 365.

Since the start of the project over 10,000 pieces of mailart have been made and sent out and new pieces are being made every day.

My 6 minutes and 40 seconds at PechaKucha!

          A beautiful testimonial by PechaKucha presenter Sonia Kar  So it began! The moment had come for me to take the stage. Rodrigo, one of the enthusiastic hosts of the evening, had started giving a grand introduction about what I was going to speak about in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds on PechaKucha Maastricht Vol 31, being held at the prestigious Sint Janskerk. What would I say? Would I be able to keep pace with the 20 seconds timer on each slide or would I just make a mess of it? Would I be able to convey my story effectively? Actually all these questions crossed my mind some two months ago when I heard about PechaKucha 20X20 presentation format using picture slides. Bit intimidating that one has to convey adequately in 20 slides with a 20 sec/slide speed, but the concept was so terrific that I had to give it a try. My application as a guest speaker took some screening considering PechaKucha was celebrating the 40th anniversary of Maastricht University. However I handled the screening questions with the same passion as I would be doing while speaking (I in fact felt I was already on stage). To my joy, I was informed that the very talented PechaKucha team had selected me. Next came the daunting task of preparing the slides – setting my story right, hunting for the appropriate pictures for the slides. That actually was not as difficult as I thought it would be. Though it called for some iterations, lots of “gentle” reminders and patience from PechaKucha team members especially Zhen (thank you for bearing with all the stupid questions which came your way). However, the issues were faced when I thought of practising. Just two days left for the event, I was making a mess. I remember the first time I practised – the entire 20 slides (each with 20 seconds) were over and I had not finished half of my story! I was always gifted with this art of talking a lot and not being precise. That would definitely be put to the test now. So then came the phase of cutting it short and making it just fit within 20 seconds. The next time I practised, I finished the story when I was in slide 10! The pressure of finishing the story was high so I missed mentioning half of the points which I had to. With some iterations I was ultimately there. On the D-day, when we reached Sint Janskerk - it was a packed house. The stage was set and rows of chairs were placed perfectly surrounding the stage. There were at least 300 people. I was trying to find familiar faces (as that would boost my confidence– human psychology as talking to known people is less of a stress than addressing unknown people) but there were hardly any. Then came the reassuring words from my husband – “You have spoken at a gathering of 100 people before. Speaking to 100 people and 300 people will feel the same”. Feeling a bit relaxed by his remark, I went and chose a comfortable spot. What I loved the most was the concept of starting with the programme at 20:20. All the speakers were outstanding, the topics and their stories were thought-provoking. There were a lot of ideas and energies which were brought in. The audience (I being a part of it too) was completely enlightened and very enthusiastic. The more I watched the speakers, the more tensed I became. It was already intimidating to match the standards set by the speakers. But I was banking on the audience, if I falter or forget something they will clap and cheer me for that too :) Then came my turn. Rodrigo announced my name and yes, I was on stage. What was playing in my mind in the first two seconds – “Wow, that’s a lot of people looking at me, how do I engage with them? Oops, watch your posture, where are your hands, oh no, I have a microphone, what were the first lines?  Ah forget it, just be yourself”.  (Yeah, mind is faster than light, all this I thought in two seconds) And that’s what happened for the next 6 minutes 40 seconds – I was myself. I spoke about how we had come up with HomeHandi, an online platform which connects passionate cooks to food lovers like us and provides healthy home cooked food options. The most interesting part of the talk was when I started speaking about our learnings. I could feel an immediate connection with the audience. The one on how we could empower most of the cooks who were women homemakers by boosting their self-confidence and making them financially independent was appreciated by everyone. By the time I spoke about how we realised that people from various cultures unite or bond together over food, I was completely at ease. “Food is a universal language and we see it as an enabler to connect people from various countries i.e. expats, students and locals together. That is exactly what we saw happening in our flagship event – International Food Festival held in Maastricht. Why not make Maastricht city as one of the pioneers in forming a culturally inclusive community?” While saying all this,  it really did not hit me that I was at this grand location or event. I felt as if it was a normal chit-chat which I was having with a group of friends of mine (PechaKucha actually signifies chit-chat).  I spoke without any inhibitions and my passion controlled my speech. I enjoyed thoroughly those 6 minutes and 40 seconds which came my way. At the end of the event I was approached by many familiar faces – familiar as I had seen them from the podium so now they were no more unfamiliar to me. I felt that PechaKucha gave me that platform to bring out the confidence in me, helped me to approach and interact with so many people, gave me the opportunity to enlighten myself. The informal way of story-telling with pictures is something very unique and very heart warming. Thank you PechaKucha for my 6 minutes and 40 seconds :)   By Sonia Kar, HomeHandi

PechaKucha Nights Islamabad

Here's what you can expect from a PechaKucha Night. PechaKucha is Japanese for the sound made when people are chit chatting. PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically every 20 seconds and the speaker talks alongside them. This brilliant method of presentation, devised by Architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, keeps presentations short, simple and interesting. PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people come together and share their work  in the PechaKucha 20x20 format. Islamabad has a lot to offer in terms of creative ideas and people. We are very excited to give this opportunity to the citizens of the city by providing a platform for local artists and creative thinkers to express their ideas, showcase their work and meet likeminded people. It’s also an opportunity for the local community to know all the amazing work being done here and the wonderful people behind it. Islamabad is now one of over 1000 official PechaKucha cities worldwide and Kuch Khaas hopes to host regular events to highlight the creativity of our city. So bring plenty of visiting cards and drop in for a cup of tea. Be part of an international community and who knows, you could be one of the next presenters.
