Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

Smart.Map has been developed on behalf of Expo 2015 S.p.A. and in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, within the two-year project Alta Scuola Politecnica. It is based on using technology as a proactive system to implement the meaning of a territory and to build and strengthen connections among local actors, physical places,
citizens and tourists. The objective is the enhancement of the main characters of a specific city and its metropolitan area, through thematic itineraries and the creation of a network of local businesses under a common brand. This provides an immersive, customized, interactive and social experience of the urban environment, as well as a usercontext direct interaction. Smart.Map has an inclusive approach towards all the major actors of the considered territory (PA, possibily existing agricultural districts, the major producers of agro-food products, local associations, tourists and citizens), towards whom it interacts through a smartphone app and a web platform providing dynamic customized itineraries with gps navigation, e-commerce services and real-time data management.

State of the Nation
BY JP O’MALLEY
@ VOL 10
ON DEC 02, 2015
The Map of The State is a graphic work by JP O'Malley that took Ireland’s 1937 constitution as its starting point. The map outlines the legislative, judicial, executive and local governmental structures of state. Just as these state structures have evolved over the intervening decades to become complex, layered and intertwined, so too did the map as available information was layered on. The shape and structure of the map was informed by the available information and the challenges of displaying this information in a single view.
Over the duration of the project the map will include greater detail on the departments, agencies and bodies that make up the Irish state in 2015. The early stages of the work will consist of a printed graphic depiction of the evolving map before literally being made concrete.

All of "ITP": Biking Every Road Inside the Perimeter
BY CRAIG DURKIN
@ VOL 35
ON FEB 25, 2018
What began as a project to map all of the fruit trees in the city of ATL turned into a game, a challenge, and a discovery. Craig Durkin began biking entire neighborhoods as the founder of Concrete Jungle, taking different routes each time, and finding all manner of interesting aspects and landmarks around the city. Now, he has decided to bike every road inside Atlanta’s perimeter road (outer belt/beltway/perimeter). Listen as Craig tells of how this project began, what he’s found along the way, and how he is turning this project into crow-sourced information.

Paulette Waltz and Spider-Man
The following images -- shown during PechaKucha Night Vol. 59 in Tokyo -- tell the story of a young man with special powers. Yes, we are indeed talking about Spider-Man, but here we examine the power of the costume in a project conducted by the masked super-hero and photographer Paulette Waltz all over the city of Tokyo.
PechaKucha Night in Madrid Vol. 5 is just around the corner -- Wednesday, May 13 -- and so time to show off just how "Mad" that city's event really is (click on the various "volumes" on the PKN Madrid info site to see more examples). If that's enough to tempt you to attend, here's a Flickr gallery slideshow from Vol. 4.
Paulette Waltz and Spider-Man, Redux
Longtime readers of PechaKucha Daily may recall that back in March we shared images from a presentation at PKN Tokyo Vol. 59 by photographer Paulette Waltz and, well, Spider-Man. Thanks to the site's new "Presentations" section, you can now experience the entire presentation.
We kick off a new week of presentation highlights with this one from PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 68, with White Rabbit Press' Max Hodges introducing us to his Tokyo Realtime audio tours.
Today we cover another presentation from the "PechaKucha for Haiti" event in Berlin held in February. This time it's Megan Mann with "Somewhere between dusk and dawn -- a life around club music." 'Motivation Megan' rocked at the end of our Berlin PechaKucha for Haiti. When desperately asking around for presenters to jump in 3 days before the event was scheduled, it was her casual nonchalance and effortless promise to show some of her amazing photos that gave us organizers enough energy to pull it all through. A Guy Called Gerald -- who Megan is working with -- made some relaxing live music for Megan's photos from around the world.
Today's presentation was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 88, and sees Lucas Chirnside and Bianca Looney talk about "Public Maps" -- from Nihonbashi to Mars, six degrees of map making.

How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature
"How do we start thinking about heat waves and why are heat waves so important?" In How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, architect and University at Buffalo Professor, Nicholas B. Rajkovich describes the design of a bicycle-based weather station used to find the “hot spots” of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Every year in the United States, more people die from heat waves than any other type of natural disaster. Extreme heat events are expected to increase in the future due to climate change. Collecting a fine scale of microclimatic data can help to determine how physical characteristics contribute to human exposure to ground and air temperatures. These data also suggest how urban design strategies can reduce the impacts of the urban heat island effect. However, microclimate measurement poses substantial challenges. Rajkovich’s work investigates the intersection of energy efficient buildings, renewable energy, and climate change resilience.
Re-Thinking Maps and Mapping
By Jess Dunkin, On the Land Programs Consultant, NWT Recreation and Parks Association In late May, the NWT Recreation and Parks Association (NWTRPA) and the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) co-hosted the second of four PechaKucha Nights slated to happen in Yellowknife this year. The theme of this evening was Maps and Mapping, a topic which clearly resonated with Yellowknifers, as once again we had to add seats at the last minute! You can read about the first PechaKucha here. Maps are more than tools for navigation. They are also rich historical and cultural objects that tell us something about how we see the world. This makes them ripe for analysis and reflection, a fact that was amply demonstrated by the evening’s six presenters. MC Mike Mitchell introducing the evening (Photo: NWTRPA) The PechaKucha opened with a funny and thoughtful introduction by the snappily dressed MC for the evening Mike Mitchell. With a hand full of well-worn maps from his travels in British Columbia, South America, and the NWT, Mike demonstrated how maps remind us of journeys taken, people encountered, and experiences had. The first presenter was Yellowknife-based photographer Fran Hurcomb, who spent her 6 minutes and 40 seconds “unrolling” what might be the country’s longest map: a 128-foot long map of the Dehcho (Mackenzie River). After explaining how the map was used by boat captains navigating Canada’s longest river, we journeyed with Fran, her partner Dave, and their daughter from Hay River to Inuvik. This trip formed the basis for an exhibition at the museum a few years ago that linked archival photographs and her own images to points on the map. (Photo: Fran Hurcomb) The second presentation, which was delivered bySteve Schwarz, transported those gathered at the museum, from the NWT’s waterways to the skyways. Steve, a remote sensing analyst with the GNWT, demonstrated how satellite images and aerial photographs can help us to map, monitor, and better understand landscape change from forest fires in the Tłı̨chǫ to shoreline erosion on the Arctic Coast to slumps in the Gwich’in Settlement Area. Steve was followed by Rajiv Rawat, a mapmaker and media/tech specialist at the PWNHC with an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of the fantasy genre. Rajiv wowed the audience with his engaging analysis of maps and representations of the North in fantasy literature, films, and television shows. From the fourth presenter, Ingrid Kritsch, Research Director of the Gwich’in Tribal Council Department of Cultural Heritage (formerly the Gwich’in Social and Cultural Institute), we learned the story behind the Gwich’in Place Names project. Since 1992, the GTC has worked with elders and knowledge holders to gather information about named places in the Gwich’in Settlement Region. This information has formed the backbone of the Gwich’in Place Names Digital Atlas and a series of place-name maps produced by the GTC. Simon Whitehouse with the Rand McNally Geo-Physical Globe (Photo: Simon Whitehouse) Next, local journalist Simon Whitehouse reported on research he conducted while a graduate student into the history of the Rand McNally Geo-Physical Earth Globes. Long before the crew of Apollo 8 photographed the earth from space, these large globes (they measured six feet in diameter and weighed more than 400lbs!) allowed Americans to see a realistic interpretation of the world they inhabited. Simon also demonstrated how the globes captured advancements in various postwar sciences including geology, cartography, ecology, and space science. The evening’s final presenter was Tom Andrews. Before he accepted a position as an archaeologist with the GNWT, Tom worked for the Dene Nation on the Dene Mapping Project, a traditional land use and occupancy survey of Denendeh. The project team worked with 600 Dene and Metis trappers to document their land use on large maps. What is less well-know about the project is the long and tedious process of computerizing the information gathered during the many interviews, something that become abundantly clear during after Tom’s presentation. The Mapping Project has inspired and furnished data for other regional mapping project including the Sahtu Atlas and the aforementioned Gwich’in Place Names Atlas. Pop-up exhibit on maps and mapping (Photo: NWTRPA) In addition to the six presentations, the night featured a pop-up exhibit about maps and mapping that included a map roller used on board the CCGS Tembah, panels from the Gwich’in Place Names project, Bonnie Fournier’s art maps, and information about a mapping project graduate student Amanda DeGray is undertaking with the Yellowkives Dene. Bonnie Fournier with her art maps (Photo: NWTRPA) Arctic Tern furnished the presenters with maps as thanks for all of their hardwork.
