Urban[e] Objects

BY WOODBURY SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
@ VOL 136 ON JUN 02, 2016

A cohort of Architecture Students from Woodbury University elected Tokyo to conduce fieldwork studies by the theme  Urban[e] Objects. The research proposes new residential strategies through the translation of objects that can exist simultaneously in multiple scales: as a tea-cup or as an urban building. Their research deploys the use of isometric drawings and urban transects and inspiration derived by traditional Japanese drawing techniques to investigate questions of authenticity, translation of vernacular making methods, and interiority and apply them to contemporary challenges of shelter.

Art of the Pencils

BY CAROLINE WEAVER
@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

In "Art of the Pencil" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16 , Caroline Weaver, amateur pencil collector but lifelong pencil lover, founded CW Pencil Enterprise in November 2014. With her pencil experts, Caroline digs up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history. As simple as it may be, the pencil is something which despite advances in technology will never become obsolete.

#3 in the SKY

This was good! And it all started with a magnificent concerto of the delicious trio: Limona Jam: Ammalia Podlaszewska + Daniele Agretti + Alex Osipenko. Taste it in a short glimpse! This was an allover dream come true evening! We had local musicians performing together for the first time, we landed on a spectacular venue on a roof top of our city, we reached the magic 10 presentations and our audience keeps on growing! Right after the sunset, we had Rubén Robledo Ibáñez showing us his reportage photos from the Gaza Stripe where he spent several weeks among befriended Palestinians. Geographically not afar, the next was Athina Stefani from Greece who involved us in her story about Ludwig Wittgenstein's house, told by the mean her own drawings authored throughout the nights before Friday: And then it happened: the Italian-Swedish team of laughter monsters (Sara Ferraioli + Carl Ydergård) stretched our cheeks to a high level of pain with their rythmic story on how Daniele, who happened to be the guitarrist at the same evening, made his career instead of playing football. A series of 20 photomontages made us laugh through the whole 400 seconds: This was not all! Sara couldn't stop just at one presentation.. An involving walk through the streets of Naples followed, filled with street art: After a smooth beer brake extended through the stunning views over Weimar: we took off again. This time Rika Tarigan from Indonesia engaged us with her designs of modern applications of the batik textile technique. Filtered through the cultural background of Indonesian fariy tales we were covered up with 20 splendid and very colorful images: Right after some colder recollections of the last winter arrived to us from Sankt Petersburg through Lithuania in the person of the delightful pianist Simona Zajancauskaite. The first musician to present images on PKN in Weimar! Stark congratulations for the courage! We were all touched by the transcontinental message instilled in the 20 slides under the title tandem, nothing is black and white anymore. The message pointing towards a possible European-Russian friendship was carried on by the presentation by Iman Hegazy (Egipt) and Tatiana Reshetnikova - the Urban Sketchers Weimar. In a series of speedy sketches we discovered some beautiful locations from Russia, Egypt and Weimar. Thank you and good luck with engaging more sketchers in your group!  The reportages from cold Russia made a perfect ground for the next story to come - this time by the PKN city-organizer himself. Gall Podlaszewski uncovered his winterly "cultural production": the Weimar Winter Bad - a series of Monday baths in the river of Ilm taking place under winter atmospheric conditions. The involvement of some other participants proved that the idea of swimming in the winter is not Bad at all! Here, the end of first season (photo by Simona Zajancauskaite who got up on a cold morning very early just to take this photo. What a brave daughter!): Right afterwards we had another swap of functions - now Tereza Spindlerova - the second city-organizer came out of her mixxer pult and took over the mic to tell us the development of her Spanish blog - a poetic journey supported by 20 almost abstract urban images: The splendid series of 10 presentations was closed, or rather opened up by the enigmatic Mr. Grüter, who did it just as we like - decided to present just at the same evening, bringing his presentation on a usb stick. Here Mr. Grüter seizes the audience with his magic pencil: Thank you all for the great fun we had that night!!

Living in Sublimity

"I like the way the markings imply an effort to impose some sort of order on infinity." Dozier Bell, an artist in Rockland, Maine, elaborates on her drawings that encompass natural and conscious elements of the world. In "Living in Sublimity" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 we see her artwork, in its simplicity, lessens our human understanding of these natural forces and gives us a greater sense of sublimity to our surroundings.

Scribbles

  “I’m a firm believer that most good ideas come from nothing but scribbles.” Graphic designer Katrina Dixon speaks on the power a simple scribble can have in initiating something bigger. From Leonardo DaVinci's scribbles of flying machines to Thomas Edison's drawings of light bulbs, in “Scribbles” from PKN Bedford Vol. 3, she illustrates the power a few lines of paper can have on the future of the human race.

Penticton Vol. 2

Penticton's second Pecha Kucha night was a great success!  We had a great turn out which, for a small city, attests to the appeal of the Pecha Kucha format. The presentations covered a diverse range of subjects by some really amazing people.  Austin Hawkins spoke of his personal journey and vision as an architect in a way that made you see what his heart truly desires from his own practice.  Michele Johnson shared the conception and successful launch of the language revitalization school for the Indigenous Okanagan People.  Peter Wolf gave an emotive and insightful journey of his meditative growth over 1 year constructing a house designed by Landform Architects.  Mimi Moylan spoke of her extensive art work that includes a strong yoga practice and important community engagemnt.  Emily Elizabeth shared beautiful images that inspired the guests and explained some of the creative process involved in making her amazing beautiful jewelry pieces.   To wrap it up Vince Freeborn celebrated the first year anniversary of his email journal The High Scribe.  As always, Vince made the crowd laugh and the High Scribe experience was made complete with a sticker book of his 20 x 20 Pecha Kucha slides!  It was a brilliant idea and had our guests greedily grabbing and trading stickers to be the first to fill up their books!   Unfortunately I did not record the presentations correctly so once I reformat them I will post them for you to watch. We have already filled up the next roster for the January 2016 Pecha Kucha night!  That is how inspiring these nights are!   Check out Vince Freeborn's sticker book here.  If you like his drawings and want to see more go to www.thehighscribe.com and get subbed up!  In my opinion it is one of the best newsletters out there.

Drawing from Technology, Illustrating from Life

"Put your hand up, the people who can't draw ... I want to ask these people: Can you make an egg? Can you write your name? Before you could that, you could draw."  If you know the vociferously talented illustrator Luis Mendo, you know just how many pages he fills daily with beautiful, lively drawings. In Drawing from Technology, Illustrating from Life from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 131, he shows off 20 drawings he made entirely on the iPad Pro, all with the Apple Pencil. As encouraging as ever, Luis shows us that everyone has the potential within themselves to draw — you just have to get out there and put pencil to paper (or iPad)!

Drawing Inspiration

  "I imagine ... how the mechanical world and the natural world might merge together." In Drawing Inspiration from PechaKucha Night Oklahoma City Vol. 4, Adam Lanman shares his drawings and explains how he can imagine the natural world functioning in mechanical ways. Throughout years of studying the poetics of the built environment, Lanman has created a massive collection of drawings, methods and subjects. Lanman’s presentation illuminates a series of works exploring the space between fine art and applied art. With his artistic pursuits, Lanman hopes to renew public interest in the mundanity of surroundings that they take for granted while keeping in mind a simple but powerful thesis: if we want to change the places we live, we must first change the way we see.

She looks, too, at visionary artists with images of the past, future, inventive assemblage, and spiritual connection. Even a prayer to the earth is included here.
