Cutting Pages

@ VOL 19 ON DEC 13, 2013

Charlene Asato joins us from the Big Island and has enjoyed creating with paper for many years. She finds it very exciting that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form and artist’s books provide a wonderful avenue to convey this energy.

A Paper Tale

@ VOL 3 ON JUL 07, 2015

"When the eyes temporarily refuse to collaborate with the brain, it usually causes a beautiful paradox."

In "A Paper Tale" from PechaKucha Night Broome, Vol. 3, paper artist Jackie Cheng's works speak for themselves. Grounded in a traditional life, she humbly downplays her mesmerisingly imaginative and intricate paper art, sharing how it is a process of simplicity and quiet reflection. Enjoy!

This was Presentation of the Day on August 6th, 2015.

Puppetry in Paradise

@ VOL 20 ON APR 19, 2017

"All creative journies start somewhere. Mine began in a paper cutting workshop..." 

In "Puppetry in Paradise" from PechaKucha Night Cairns Vol. 20,  Danielle Henderson is trained in theatre, performance and media arts. She is a passionate entertainer, writer/ storyteller and occasional singer living in Cairns, Far North Queensland.  Since becoming a mother her attention has turned to visual art forms, specifically Scherenschnitte, or silhouette paper cutting. Her work is exceptionally detailed and has a pure uncomplicated visual appeal which lends itself poetically to shadow play. In 2013 Danielle wrote and performed I Live Here - a shadow puppet theatre experience for children.
Seeking more colourful and less solitary creative engagements she has more recently facilitated a community arts project for children and families. Her latest work is pushing her interest in puppet making into 3 dimensions.


Bakoko and the Cutty Sark Pavillion

Alastair Townsend of Tokyo-based design studio Bakoko was a presenter at the recent PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 64, and he's put together a very nice video of his presentation. Townsend presented the design and construction of the Cutty Sark Pavilion (the world's first building to have been realized using Bentley's parametric design software, Generative Components). The talk goes on to briefly present recent projects including Acacia Arboricola Synthetica (a synthetic tree house), a restaurant on the water (on top of a skyscraper), the Shi Shi O Doshi rain shelter, and the Matuso Mansion. I love hearing the Muppets-inspired "PechaKucha" chant at the start of the clip.

Design Authenticity in Miami

PechaKucha Night in Miami is readying for a special edition event, in collaboration with the Hospitality Design Boutique Exposition & Conference. You should always be yourself and that same authenticity goes for the spaces we live in. Does your bedroom look like a confessional? Is your white loft space ready for a gastric bypass surgery? It’s time to explore this idea of Design Authenticity… Pecha Kucha Miami continues to weave itself into the international creative and cultural fabric with its latest Hospitality Design Boutique Exposition & Conference collaboration. Pecha Kucha: Design Authenticity will feature eights presenters sharing their perspectives from international research, cutting edge technology, the humanities, social responsibility, and ecology. The event takes place September 15 (13:00-14:00) at the Miami Beach Convention Center.


Keiko Tsuji

Today Keiko Tsuji shows us what she's able to achieve with just her pair of Muji scissors and paper that already has something printed on it. Armed with only a pair of Muji scissors and some paper, Keiko explains the Japanese art of "kirie" or paper cutting. The presentation slowly unfolds showing how incredibly creative this art can be. The presentation is in Japanese with some English, but the pictures say it all!

PKN Gisborne in the News

As we mentioned last week, PechaKucha Night in Gisborne Vol. 5 was held this past Friday and organizer Pene Walsh was hoping to donate as much of the entry fee as possible to disaster relief in Christchurch. Some very good news: "The venue was sponsored, cutting our overheads dramatically, so we were able to give all donations taken as door fee to the Christchurch Earthquake appeal -- NZ$1200.00 -- thanks Gisborne!" We're including scans of a few articles -- here's more from Pene:The Gisborne Herald article (in 2 parts) came out the night before PK. Pippa Coom talked about the international movement of ‘Frocks on Bikes’ -- Gisborne PechaKucha co-organiser Sarah Cleave was also instrumental in organizing “Nice Ride,” a cycling event that took place the day after PechaKucha Night. She is a busy person. Also in 2 parts is a feature in the Gisborne Herald Weekender about Sarah.We'll also have a post up shortly with a few photos from PKN Gisborne Vol. 5.

Wood and Steel

Welding, cutting, bending, sand-blasting, polishing, Sjors van Buyten does it all; and in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Hong Kong Vol. 14) he elaborates on the pieces he's crafted from found objects. Sjors works primarily with metals, wood, and light -- and the results are often electrifying.

The Streets Belong to Us

"We can take over the streets. We can have fun there because the city belongs to us." In "The Streets Belong to Us" from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, content creator Mateus Bagatini shines the spotlight on Brazilian street party culture, but not the carnival kind with which we're all familiar! Exhausted and bored with the exclusive and over-priced club scene, a new generation of partiers have decided to take the club to the street, hosting DJs and dancers under bridges, in the parks, or even in once-abandoned commercial spaces, bringing with them more people, cheap booze, the authorisation of the city, and well ... what looks like a damn good time. Not just simply focussed on cutting loose, the parties have taken on numerous forms, often with a social message and have successfully demonstrated being an agent of change for the betterment of cities. As a citizen-driven culture, at parties in Brazil's public spaces everyone is invited ...after all the city belongs to us!
