PKN at Interactivity
PechaKucha Night made an appearance in Philadelphia late last month at "Interactivity," the annual conference of the Association of Children's Museums, and from this post over at the Living in Kidcity blog, it sounds like it was good fun. I would definitely support the drinking game suggested at the end of the post -- all in the name of charity! Pictured from left: Jane Werner (CEO of the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh), Jon McEuen (co-organizer of PKN Philadelphia), and Peter Exley (organizer of PKN Chicago).
An International PechaKucha Poster Exhibition
Annette Scheibel, the organizer responsible for PKN Aalborg, along with artist Helena Sokol have collected nearly 300 PechaKucha Night posters from around the world and have begun showing them at a small curated exhibition in their Danish harbor town. Annette has put together a small photo-set of the exhibition, which also allows its visitors to purchase posters whose proceeds will go to the assistance of refugees in Syria (by way of the Jesuit Refugee Service). Syrian organizer Harout Ekmanian (of PKN Aleppo)helped coordinate with Annette to make this effort possible -- a fine example of the PechaKucha family coming together on an international level.
This edition of Presentation of the Day comes to you from the annals of PechaKucha yore (well, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 53) and features interpreter-by-trade Sarah Stark speaking of her life growing up foreign in Japan. Additionally, she goes into detail on how people-watching inspired her to take up photography.
Importance of Internet services
Anton Borzov, founder of the design studio TOKYO, says that on the Internet people want to do the same things as they do in real life, so it's important to let them make the most conveniently reach out to other people. On the example of the stories from his life, Anton spoke about how companies that created the leading Internet-based technologies make people living easier in travel or allow to communicate with society in a very comfortable way.
A Declaration of Cultural Interest
Here at PechaKucha we're very proud to have received a variety of awards and special recognition in cities all over the world, and the latest such honor comes via the PechaKucha Night series in Colonia del Sacramento. The series has received from the Uruguay government -- more specifically, the Ministry of Education and Cutlure -- an official "Declaration of Cultural Interest," and that's before the first event has even been held (it's set for February 21). A big congratulations to the PKN Colonia del Sacramento team!
Designing Spaces with Interaction in Mind
How would you like to see like a sheep sees? Could you find your way through a maze using your sense of smell alone? Edwin Schlossberg speaks about designing places where people can both learn from one another and understand complex ideas using a mixture of no technology and high technology. In "Designing Spaces with Interaction in Mind" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 113, we see that Edwin has been designing facilities all over the world where people can learn and discover new things from each other’s experiences and from the tools held within.
Time and Interaction
What if the game you were playing lasted longer than you could live? In "Time and Interaction" from PKN Valletta Vol. 3, video game maker, critic, and professor Pippin Barr speaks on the interactive medium of games, and how the concept of time is exhibited within the medium. From games where you must complete a number frenetic tasks lest your character die, to those where your character is sentenced to 100 real-life years in prison (i.e. we will never live to see what happens at the end of his sentence), Pippin demonstrates the power interactivity can have over our thoughts on time.
Nothing Really Interests Me
“We are nothing until we enact our destiny by doing something.” Artist John Stephens is fascinated by nothing in particular, and in “Nothing Really Interests Me” from PKN Bedford Vol. 4 he tells us just what he means by that. For the past few years John has been exploring spaces that have no particular significance to them, and photographing his results to great effect.
Where do you play in your city? Simon Bedford discusses the excitement that can be found at Coventry’s Warwick Arts Centre. In “Playful Interventions” from PKN Coventry Vol. 19, he begins by showing off the impact that interactive light sculptures, piano stairs, augmented reality advertisements, and speed limit lotteries can have on a community.
The Invisible Internet of Everything
How many of your appliances are already controlled by the collective intelligence of the internet? Science, engineering, and collective intelligence have come together to create a powerful internet of things around us. In “The Invisible Internet of Things” from PKN Toronto Vol. 31, Madhuri Eunni, founder and CEO of SKE labs, explores the infinite possibilities of the internet of things from wearables, smart homes, to smart cities, and how it changes the way we live.
