Shaping Space and Realities

BY LAUREN SLOWIK
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

Disabling Labelling

BY ANN HAWKINS
@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."

In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."

Made in Maastricht

By Jean-Paul Toonen Wim Ortjens legt ons op illustratieve wijze uit hoe je een kat vilt, om er een handtasje van te maken. En hoe kuikentjes uit dierenliefde door de shredder gaan. Ook is daar Fabian Seibert (Aken) die ons een collier toont dat als een tie-wrap alleen maar strakker kan worden aangetrokken. Een morbide greep uit enkele presentaties op de Pecha Kucha Night in Ainsi, waar 12 sprekers het publiek trakteerden op hun inzichten en ideeën. Het format heeft zich in korte tijd bewezen, want ook deze zaterdag de 20e juni is de zaal zo goed als uitverkocht. Voor de stad Maastricht zou de Pecha Kucha (PK) licentie wel eens een van de springplanken kunnen worden naar de status van Culturele Hoofdstad. Want als je claimt met creatieve cultuur te komen, moet je internationaal op de kaart staan met je ideeën. Het aardige is dat die Maastrichtse internationale doorbraak met PK nu al stilaan in beweging komt. Bedenker van het rigide format is de Engelsman Mark Dytham, die zijn bureau in Tokyo runt. Al bij Maastrichts tweede PK Night kreeg onze organisatie een mail uit Tokyo, waarin Dytham met zijn team zegt “amazed” te zijn door de Maastrichtse aanpak. Ofschoon PK in meer dan 200 steden actief is, heeft men nergens in de wereld de registratie voor web-tv zo fundamenteel aangepakt. In heel wat zaaltjes staan oude dia-projectoren en hangen beddenlakens, hetgeen natuurlijk ook een prima resultaat oplevert. In dergelijke no-cost omgevingen worden evengoed prachtige ideeën en visies gelanceerd. Helaas worden die dan alleen maar door de aanwezigen gezien. En wat er zo uit de losse pols met een mobieltje wordt gefilmd is natuurlijk charming maar ook onverstaanbaar. En dat leidt niet tot kijkcijfers. In Maastricht gaat het vanaf dag 1 toch anders. En de wereld van design, kunst en andere creatieve sectoren nemen PK Maastricht dan ook snel serieus. Spreker Nick Decrock gaf gisteravond een mooie verbeelding van zijn overactieve levenshouding (Multitis). Dus vind je meteen zijn eerste reactie in zijn blog. Maar de sprekers zijn ook blij met de shortfilms die vanaf volgende week hun idee gaan uitdragen. PK liefhebbers zijn er wereldwijd genoeg. Zodat de bijdragen uit Maastricht in exponentiële aantallen gezien worden, gerelateerd aan het aantal toeschouwers in de zaal. Ook William Willems deed gisteren zijn bloemrijke verhaal over “Flowerbombing.” Terwijl hij dat al eerder presenteerde in PK nr I van Amsterdam. Niet zonder reden ook in Maastricht, want ook hij beschikt straks over een Engelstalige shortfilm, die zijn verhaal veel verder brengt dan de driehonderd toehoorders in de zaal. Made in Maastricht! Over de bijdragen die we gisteren gezien hebben heb ik alleen maar alle lof. De kwaliteit was hoog, de inventiviteit eveneens.  Lonneke ten Hooventrakteerde werkelijk op bijzondere chocolade bonbons en Cyriel Kortleven bracht ons terug in het besef van tijd. Mij raakte vooral de textielkunst van Jeroen Vinken, de spontane energie van beroepsbloggers Stijn Peters en Matylda Krzykowski. Maar ook al die warme reflecties van de Maastrichtse bezoekers, die het uitgaansleven van zaterdagavond links lieten liggen om van deze derde PK Night in Maastricht geen woord te missen.

A Beautiful Reality

"People rarely, if ever, made it into my images -- and when they did, it was a depiction of what they did, and never really a depiction of how they felt to me." Originally a travel photographer, Ralph Hassenpflug has changed his creative approach and now enjoys photographing people and the aspects of them that are disconnected from their "public selves." In the fascinating "A Beautiful Reality" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 18, Ralph describes the primitivistic approach to his art: he does not think his pictures - he feels them.
