Sparks: The Magic of the Grid

BY ALEX HALBLEIB
@ VOL 5 ON MAY 19, 2016

"The whole idea of being connected in some way, shape, or form, through this system that people set up, is so we can actually help each other do better things." 

In Sparks: The Magic of the Grid from PechaKucha Night St. Joseph Vol. 5, electrical engineer at Whirlpool Corporation, Alex Halbleib distills an explanation of the mechanics (and magic) and the ubiquitous grid that brings our homes energy every day and night. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, (that's pronounced "Loo-ih-vil", without the "S"!) Alex is currently working in the advanced engineering where he hopes to make the world's connection just a little bit stronger.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016.

3D-Printing Biology

BY CORRIE VAN SICE
@ VOL 23 ON SEP 20, 2013

Corrie Van Sice works at the intersection of design, engineering, and biology. She speaks on the under-discussed dilemma of "innovation" run amok. Corrie posits that if more scientists were to operate like artists (in that they could explore their studies without university or corporate control), development in their field might take a new and exciting direction.

Presence of signals

BY LINDA DOYLE
@ VOL 10 ON DEC 02, 2015

Linda’s talk is called Signalling Home. It is about the intersection of wireless signals and concepts of home. It looks at examples from technology and art in which the presence of absence of signals construct notions of home. It draws on abstract concepts as well as specific advances in wireless technologies.

Linda is the Chair of Engineering & The Arts in Trinity College Dublin and Director of CONNECT – a national research centre focused on future networks and communications, co-funded by Science Foundation Ireland and industry. Her research interests are in wireless communications, dynamic spectrum management, reconfigurable systems and creative arts practices.

Construction 2000

BY JUHO VIITASALO
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 01, 2016

Juho Viitasalo shares Construction 2000, a unique geometric steel sculpture in Helsinki, Finland. Its most eye catching feature is a 600 kg pyramid that seems to float in air without any support. This 10 meter tall physics defying structure has stood since 1982 and is truly unique in the world. However it is still somewhat unknown. Construction 2000 was designed by Markku Viitasalo and now his son wants to take the design to the world out of the confines of the office block where it stands in Helsinki.

Beyond Thin Mints: Girl Scouting & STEM

BY ALLISON MARTINSON
@ VOL 22 ON APR 13, 2017

When you think about Girl Scouts, you probably don't think about Juliette Gordon Low, the hard-of-hearing inventor that helped bring scouting to the United States. You're probably thinking about cookies. Cookies are a Girl Scout's first introduction to entrepreneurship. Allison Martinson introduces them to engineering. At Girl Scouts of Wisconsin - Badgerland, Girl Scouts are learning to use their dreams and ideas to make, build, design, create, dissect, and analyze. Badgerland's program introduces girls to code, robotics, entomology, and rocketry, connects girls to inspiring adult volunteers, and encourages girls to use STEM to make the world a better place.

Steamed Up over STEM

BY JOHN DEBACHER
@ VOL 22 ON APR 13, 2017

What's all the fuss and focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in our schools? It's spread beyond earlier efforts to proactively help our young women not feel stigmatized if they enjoy an equation or two, and now threatens to spread a cumulonimbus over our educational system. Where are the Arts in all this? Not even chopped liver -- that might qualify as culinary science. I believe that, when you get beyond all the flash of STEM's appeal, it's components can, upon reflection, be seen as progeny of the Arts. The necessary components of abstraction, classification and description rely on humankind's unique language abilities, as do the symbols in formulas and theorems. Science could not have developed without the fundamental dance of discourse and recorded evidence that developed from the advancement of oral storytelling into poetry to literature...and of course, how could we survive any of this without humor?

Moment Factory

We kick off the week with a "Presentation of the Day" that was recorded in Frankfurt about a studio in Montreal. 75 multimedia artists work at Moment Factory. Although the studio is based in Montreal, Canada, the team is composed of people from around the world and from various backgrounds, including dance, architecture, lighting design, programming, engineering, graphic design, illustration, music, production and more. What Gabriel Pontbriand loves so much about his job is that each project is a surprising adventure. Having and international and multidisciplinary group of people working together allows them to imagine interactions between technology and emotion that are unique each time.

Takram Design Engineering

Kaz Yoneda (speaking at PKN Tokyo Vol. 96), along with his colleagues at Takram Design Engineering, was approached by a Korean company with a rather bleak vision of the future. He was entrusted with a mission that (should he choose to accept it) could, perhaps, save humanity. His task: to design a water bottle for a future in which our major resources have been exhausted.  His team -- as is their custom -- took the concept to the Nth degree and developed a number of external and to-be-implanted biotics that would allow their users the ability to live off 165mL of water a day.

3D Printing Biology

In today's Presentation of the Day, "3D Printing Biology" from PKN Miami Vol. 26, we hear from Corrie Van Sice, who works at the intersection of design, engineering, and biology. Corrie has used 3D-printing technology to engineer proto-cells (structures that look like real cells -- they include a nucleus and cell walls -- but not made from anything living).  She speaks on the under-discussed dilemma of "innovation" run amok and posits that if more scientists were to operate like artists (in that they could explore their studies without university or corporate control), development in their field might take new and exciting direction.

Waterloo Region Chapter - WELCOME

Waterloo Region Chapter is finally here! Our team is happy to welcome everyone here for this new and exhilarating project. Pecha Kucha 20×20 is a format that encourages brief, concise, visual presentations that keep the audience engaged. Each presentation includes 20 images, displayed for 20 seconds each. The images advance automatically and presenters talk along to the images, accumulating into a 6 minutes 40 seconds presentation. Bringing together our satellite campuses from the University of Waterloo is key to our mission. Over this 2014-2015 year and future years, you will see our community gathering and expressing a new sense of belonging that fun events such as the Pecha Kucha night nurture. Celebrating culture, art, innovation, technology just because "Ideas Start Here". We are really excited to see our V.1 participants' presentations! While celebrating creativity on its own by its originality, this Pecha Kucha Night (TM) is also a way to celebrate works of art by architecture, engineering, and urban planning students, faculty, alumni and community members since it also closes the Engi-Tecture: Eccentricity art show that they had put together.  So don't hesistate and come on down to visit us tonight! Pecha Kucha: Creative Projects - Sat. July, 26th @ 7pm; 60 Main Street, Cambridge.

Chupacabra!

PK 2 - Chupacabra! Check out Glen Vigus's interview in the Eagle! We had an amazing evening and met lots of new friends. Suresh Pillai, Professor of Microbiology, talked about using electrons to help clean, heal, feed and shape the world. Artist Karen Hillier showed work from her series “Unforgotten,” involving artifacts from the daily ablutions of her grandparents. Richard Lester brought a horde of young entrepreneurs who all joined in to share news from the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship, where he serves as Executive Director. Russell Reid, architect and artist, reflected on the process of artmaking from analog to digital and back. Technologist Benedict Nguyen shared the amazing world of 3D scanning and printing. Amateur photographer Glen Vigus led us through the history of photography, and inspired us with 32 years of love and pride in his work, earning his title of amateur. Thanks to Jennifer and Ruthie for organizing and leading the evening! We’ll be back in the summer, and hope you’ll nominate yourself or someone else for next time!
