From Flaneur to Panneur

BY ANTOINE VAXELAIRE
@ VOL 110 ON JAN 22, 2014

In the 19th century, flaneurs leisurely walked the arcades of their cities and saw what they could see. In the 20th century, from high-rise buildings voyeurs utilized cameras or binoculars to peer into the lives of others from afar. Architect and thinker Antoine Vaxelaire proposes that we, citizens of the new millennium, are panneurs or those who pan the surface of the earth (or in our case, the internet), never going too deep, for information.

BY FATEN AGGAD-CLERX
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 29, 2016

“Stereotypes harm dignity, but the truth of the matter is that stereotypes sell”

What is your image of Africa? A poor, conflict-ridden, hot continent with beautiful sunsets and wild animals, or a hub for innovations and the second fastest growing economy?

By day Faten Aggad works as Africa programme manager at the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM). By night she studies journalism and is a travel writer. In Every 60 seconds in Africa… from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Volume 29, she will challenge you to look at Western media headlines through a different lens.

Втзприятието на човешкият мозък

BY KRISTINA RACHEVA
@ VOL 3 ON NOV 26, 2016

Кристина Рачева ще ни представи тема, свързана с визуализацията на човешкия мозък. Ще ни разкаже два експеримента свързани с тях и едно свое наблюдение за това как чувствата влияят отрицателно на трезвата мисъл.

Мозъкът е орган, който контролира функциите на организма.

Първият експеримент се нарича Гумена ръка и включва сетивата зрение и осезание и ни представя как човешкият мозък може да бъде заблуден чрез визуализацията.

Вторият експеримент доказва малко известният факт, че децата чуват по-добре от възрастните. Диапазонът на чуване на детското ухо е действително по-широк.

Последната част от темата, свързана с емоциите представя с други думи конфликтът между мозъкът и сърцето. Кристина Рачева ще разкаже своето виждане за това.

Who is the other? The Living Library

BY CRISTINA MANCIGOTTI
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Identities can create barriers, instil a feeling of fear and lead us to act in different ways. Or they can spark curiosity and make us eager to understand different perceptions and realities. Cristina Mancigotti talks about projects she has been involved across Europe (Italy, Hungary, France) which foster dialogue, such as the Living Library.

Susana Soares

Not only did the second edition of PechaKucha Night in Trieste -- held late last year -- attract over 600 attendees, it also featured an intriguing mix of presenters. The event's organizer, EXTRASMALL's Vanna Coslovich, tells us about Susana Soares and her "BEE'S PROJECT." We had more than 600 people at PKN Vol. 2 in Trieste. The location was really fascinating: the old wholesale fruit and vegetable market on the city waterfront. Every day, early in the morning, the place serves for selling wholesale. It was the very first time the market opened its doors for a creative event. Presenters came from North Italy, as well as Slovenia, Austria, and Great Britain. The most original presentation was "BEE’S PROJECT" by Susana Soares, a London-based Portuguese designer. She employs design as a tool to explore future technological implications for public engagement and awareness. Have you ever heard that bees have a phenomenal odor perception? Susana Soares explained to the public of PKN Trieste how the bees can be trained within minutes using Pavlov’s reflex to target a specific odour, and their range of detection includes pheromones, toxins, and disease diagnosis. "BEE’S PROJECT" explores how we might co-habit with natural biological systems and use their potential to increase our perceptive abilities. We have always co-existed with these systems, but their potential was unknown. Susana’s work was also exhibited in “Design and the Elastic Mind” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, curated by Paola Antonelli, before becoming part of the permanent collection of the museum. Below, some more images from Susana's presentation.

Point of View

In "Point of View," Samer Tarabichi shares his thoughts on how you can perceive things differently after you change your angle or you change your position. The whole picture changes, and it affects your understanding and perception. The presentation is about the importance of taking different points of view on things that we take for granted. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Aleppo Vol. 2, and is in Arabic.

PKN Weimar #4 Radio Lotte

On the brink of summer. Between two World Cup games. Squeezed in Radio Lotte Weimar, the fourth Pecha Kucha Night! What a delight! The songs Panon hideung, Personal Jesus performed by the locally famous Limona Jam reminded us of the great PKN #3. The three musicians reached the peak with I feel good! which moved some of the audience towards a loud dance in the bar area of the hospitable Lesesaal at Goethe Platz 12. The great photos of the evening by Simona Zajancauskaite are streamed here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/110288053@N04/sets/72157645103325358/. During the evening, for the third time we hosted our good neighbor from Erfurt, Barbara Kuntze, who just a week later succesfuly launched the first PechaKucha Night in Erfurt! Huge congratulations, and let's rock Thuringia together! Straight after the concert we received five involving presentations, each of them charged with a slightly scientific focus:  Christiane Lewe, a PhD at the Media Faculty of the Bauhaus University presented her fascinating research on the genealogy of facebook. Clarissa (first left) except for enjoying the nicest bar tender in the world (Sara and Carl) in a two-presenters presentation shared her perception of the Merketal dormitory juxtaposed with the impressions of the Jakobsplan by Simona Z. The travelling architect Joshua Raff enriched our evening by his story on learning Chineese by the means of sharp hand drawings, while Carlos Sandoval of Mexico took us into his hipster photo story charged with explosive sense of humour. The evening was topped with the brilliant trio of Fabulous Jakobsplan who invited us all to participate in their participatory research about the only scyscraper of Weimar - the Jakobsplan dormitory. Who knows where will we end up in September! Thanks to all for your great support and see you next time!

Taking Art Back

Many people think there is special knowledge required just to enjoy art. Are they right? Yinka! focuses on inherent inaccessibility of art to the common man and how this trend is changing. Despite advancements in and best efforts of society, governments, educators, etc., there is still a widely held perception that it is something reserved for the rich and privileged. In “Taking Art Back” from PKN Markham Vol. 3, you’ll see: change is a-coming!

Art & Technology - PechaKucha Night Aalborg #18

It's been a while since our last blog post - but that doesn't mean there hasn't been a lot of PechaKucha in Aalborg - just been busy making things happen - and we still are! :-) Last years international PechaKucha at IMAGES Festival in Karolinelunden had an audience of 150 in the tent and held the amazing synergy, when PechaKucha Nights are the best and it was followed by a small PechaKucha at a local Sustainability Festival on the international PechaKucha Night only 14 days after. We connected to Tokyo in the midst of technical cacaphonia of voices from everywhere and we managed to say a short hello Tokyo and we had a cosey event at KUL Nordkraft. In october we returned to our base at HUSET and went Twin Peaks themish in "The owls are not what they seem..." and had great presenters finishing the night off poetically with Frederik Bøgh Andersens . In february 2014 we finished a great event with a small concert all for free of course. In june we took the PechaKucha Night Aalborg #17 to a reconstructed ferry and made it a floating cultural event at Plagen – om:form and beautifully the idea of reconstructing the ferry to a culturalvenue was presented at a PechaKucha Night February 2013. Amazing to be able to follow a great idea to be reality through amazing work of two architects and volunteers. And now to the essense of present: last tuesday we returned to the harbour and went ashore in the fabulous new Aalborg University building for art & technology and architecture and design made by Henning Larsen Architects just next to Musikkens Hus. Almost 200 people found their way through the buildingsite and rain to the new auditorium. This PechaKucha was organized as a close collarboration between the art & technology faculty and the culturalhouse HUSET - and its been great fun to work with Julia Spicina - who also created the beautiful poster and Jacob Borrits Sabra. The programme was opened by Stahl Stenslie artist, professor and head of the faculty – with an amazing presentation of “Haptic art”. Stahl works with installations that involve interactive art-suits that can give an extra dimension through creating touch from the suits. Lance Putnam is also a professor at art and technology and he presented us to “Harmonic pattern function” both from nature, how we perceive and react to it as humans and how to create it with computers and expand our consciousness of perception of the world – quite a mindblowing presentation! Lars Bonde is an artist and owns a small gallery for conceptual art called VÆG (WALL). Lars is in the middle of a fantastic muralproject in Aalborg where 10 artists from all over the world have been invited to make artworks on walls in the city picked out together with the cityarchitect. Signe Højmark is projectmanager of a new landartart project and festival called LANDSHAPE here in Nordjylland and she presented the ideas of both inviting artists to make great works and to invite the public in to create landart. Morten Poulsen is educated musician from the conservatory here in Aalborg and is very passionate about music – especially drumming! He was here to present a new music instrument he’s created to go with a playstation and he both presented and played for us! In our PechaKucha break the audience could enjoy posters from all over the world exhibited in the hall and of course buy a beer, coffee and cake in the studentsbar. And graphic designer Adam Hansel had placed free posters to grab on the tables. First presenter after the break was Elizabeth Jochum is an Assistant Professor of Art and Technology at Aalborg University.  She has a BA from Wellesley College and an MA/PhD from the University of Colorado Boulder. Elizabeth is the co-founder of the Robot Culture and Aesthetics research group at the University of Copenhagen.  Her research focuses on how to design robots that are as fascinating as people. But as she started out saying: our best machines are made of sunshine J She gave us examples as to how the interaction between robots and actors and dancers can expand artistic experiences of theatre. Andreas Mathew has his own small company make both artistic projects and this project he called “Survivalskills”! Survivalskills is an interactive game the uses augmented reality - made for pupils in elementary school to create awareness and information about craftsmen educations.  Adam Hansel went slapstick presenting his desire of sharing the power of the poster with everyone and two students Allan Yde Enevoldsen and Grith Sandberg shared their thought and dreams regarding being educated in art and technology. Last came two other students Alf Andersen and Jean Francois Robin  talking about “Visual symphony”. Alf and Jean Francois had cooperated with Aalborg Symphony Orchestra to make visuals to a concert with Stravinskijs Firebird. We finished off with a small DJ concert in the hall and a lot of chit-chat and cosey happy people. Angd guess what: the rain had stopped outside J See ya at HUSET for a PechaKucha Night Aalborg #19 on December 9. 20.20 Thank you from Annette Scheibel cityorganizer of PechaKucha Night in Aalborg

Concepts in Time and Motion

“We are here in space at this moment…this is specific to human beings. The fly doesn’t live at our frame rate…to us [a movie] is motion, to them it’s a series of stills.” Artist Jonathon Schipper captures a moment in time through sculpture. In “Concepts in Time and Motion” from PKN Brooklyn Vol. 2, he goes into depth on the perception humans and other beings have of time, space, speed, and motion, and displays his work: two cars crashed together incredibly slowly over the course of two months.

Flowers and Nuclear Warfare

“I Think about the relationship to perception…..seeing is believing.” In "Flowers and Nuclear Warfare" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16, Eric LoPresti makes artwork that examines the imposition of technology upon the environment and the aftermath of the Cold War. His dramatic landscapes juxtapose abstract elements with representations of the vast deserts of the American west, exploring relationships between science, identity, history and conflict. Following in the painterly tradition of the apocalyptic sublime, LoPresti’s artistic practice explores how our lives are shaped by trauma and beauty.
