Pigment-Imitating-Pixels-Imitating-Graphite: Perceptions in Daydreaming

@ VOL 2 ON MAR 10, 2015

This presentation briefly explores the production and workflow of creativity as it is first “discovered” in a graphite and/or ink sketch, then compositionally interpreted in Photoshop, and finally reinterpreted as a canvas painting from the digital compilation. Do the tools available with advances in technology change the paradigm of the creative decision making process? And, the chicken or the egg question, Is the canvas painting an original or a copy?

Keitaro Yonehara

Photographer Keitaro Yonehara presented a selection of his works at Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo Vol. 58.

PKN Sacramento Vol. 8

Last month's PechaKucha Night in Sacramento Vol. 8 was again held at the Level Up Lounge -- here's hoping plenty of glasses of "The Pecha Kucha" got served -- and organizer Claire Obenson sends in this report. The last PK Night went very well. We had seven presenters (including me) at Level Up Lounge in Sacramento: fashion designer Pamela Desrochers (special guest presenter), designer extraordinaire and Romp Creative co-founder Jake Favour, 19-year-old artist Stephanie Karapinar (our youngest ever presenter), moi, architect and artist Merle Serlin, designer and fisherman Scott Vaughn, and virtual designers Justin & Laura Wood. The lounge typically features the work of a different artist each month. This month, the featured artist was Merle Serlin whose work is beyond description. Her landscapes are sown on fabric. I think most of the presentations were quite original, yet quintessentially Sacramento. Some examples include Scott Vaughn's presentation on Fly Fishing and Pamela Desrochers' highly accessible fashion designs. Justin and Laura Woods virtual design work was unlike anything we've ever seen. Jake Favour was bursting with design ideas he would like to implement or see implemented -- his "Balloon-Enabled Pizza Picnic Delivery" was a fan favourite. Stephanie Karapinar had some fabulous charcoal sketches and futuristic photoshop creations. My presentation was on Hip Hop Architecture, whom some compared to late artist, Keith Haring. Honestly, I "sampled" from "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt -- I call it Klimting! The March flyer is a hip, superfly version of American Gothic. Our next PKN will be in August, themed "Hot August Nights." We have announced a competition to design a poster to advertise the event.

PKN Christchurch Vol. 8

Last month's PechaKucha Night in Christchurch Vol. 8 had a special host, and yes, as the photo above reveals, none other than PK co-founder Mark Dytham was in town to not only attend the event but also lend a hand with the mic. Big thanks to organizer Vanessa Coxhead for the nice gallery of photos -- we're including a few in this post, but there's much more to see in this Flickr photoset. And if you missed it, take a look at the amazing posters that were created for the event -- and those are not just photoshop jobs, all of those "PK meets heavy metal" t-shirts were actually produced (but limited to 1 each).

Light Painting in Osnabrueck

Shown at Osnabrueck's PechaKucha Night Vol. 6 earlier this year, the photos included in this post are part of some "light painting" work by Christoph Abé and Kai Bornemann. PKN Osnabrueck organizer Clemens Gruber has sent us some text in German to accompany the photos, but do note that all of them do not use any Photoshop trickery. Wenn die von den Eltern vermittelten Werte bei ihren erwachsenen Kindern manch roten Leitfaden darstellen, welcher sicher durch die Gesellschaft führt, dann darf man als Papa und als Mama gleichermaßen stolz sein. Denn diese Werte, dieser Anstand und diese Bildung sind das Ergebnis einer langen Reise, welche durch mehrere Generationen führt. Kennst du die Stille im Lärm, welche dich im Alltag umgibt und die du als unangenehm wahrnimmst, da immer um dich herum etwas passieren muß?! Genieß diese kleine Insel und nutze sie zum Durchatmen ... sie ist dein Erholungsort im Dschungel der Hektik. An was glaubst du, wenn du an das Wort „GLAUBE“ denkst? An was denkst du, wenn du an das Wort „Nachdenken“ glaubst? Glaubst du, dass du WIRKLICH die Fähigkeit der Reflexion besitzt? Oder glaubst du nicht eher doch an den Spiegel, den du dir selber vorhälst, damit du nicht weiter Nachdenken musst, wer du WIRLICH bist? Das Licht am Ende eines Tunnels ist in vielerlei Hinsicht interpretierbar: Man kann es als Neuanfang sehen, als helfende Hand, als wärmenden Sonnenschein im tristen Alltag oder einfach nur als das, was es ist: Die Helligkeit, welche uns immer wieder lächeln lässt, welche uns gerne an das erinnern lässt, wofür es sich zu Leben lohnt: die Einmaligkeit von besonderen, hellen Momenten! Unverdaute Vertrautheit gleicht einer unverbrauchten Seele: Naiv, flügelspreizend und ohne jegliche Bedenken dem Risiko begegnend, welches einem in Form von angeblich abgeklärten Menschen ins offene Messer rennen lässt.

Estudiantes de Publicidad de Duoc UC Viña del Mar diseñan identidad de Pecha Kucha Vol.4 de Quilpué

  "Cuando nos informaron sobre realizar la gráfica para pechakucha, sabíamos que debía ser una propuesta a la altura del avento, y al pensar en graficar “verano tiempo de buenas ideas”, pensamos en la connotación de esta frase en un personaje que podía ser reflejada en la escultura del pensador, pero llevada al concepto del verano, que sería personalizándolo con ropa  de playa. nuestra idea desde el comienzo fue en crear una gráfica simple pero con un concepto claro y creo que se logró...  Utilizamos un modelo que posara con la misma postura del pensador, para luego sacarle fotos de diferentes perspectivas tal que al momento de la edición en Photoshop fuese más fácil.  Respecto a los colores, quisimos ocupar el color celeste ya que a simple vista y de la mano con el concepto, resulta ser un color que entrega frescura y relajo. También un color representativo del verano como lo es el amarillo; quisimos que fuesen tonos  limpios y simples, pero que estuviesen a la altura con lo que se nos pedía" Señalan. Yesenia Collao y son estudiantes de la carrera de Publicidad en duoc UC Viña del Mar y el encargo para desarrollo del concepto visual del Vol.4 de Pecha Kucha Quilpue fue abordado en una asignatura, el curso optativo de Retoque Digital Participaron más de 20 alumnos con sus propuestas. Las orientaciones del proyecto estuvieron a cargo del docente Pablo Aguilera.
