PKN San Jose, Costa Rica Vol. 2

The second volume of Pecha Kucha Night hit San Jose, Costa Rica a couple of weeks ago, packing in over 400 at Jazzcafe Escazu, and garnering some well-deserved press, including a full-page article in Costa Rica's largest newspaper, Nacion, and coverage in business magazine La Republica as well.

Heather Ring

Today we go green with our daily presentation highlight, covering Hearther Ring and her wayward plants. The Wayward Plant Registry is a project of social exchange and botanical desire. A wayward plant, commonly referred to as a weed, is one growing where it is not wanted. They may be non-native, unsightly, invasive, high-maintenance, surplus or withering, and so are uprooted and abandoned, pulled from the earth (or pot!) as urban castaways. But wayward plants, whether common weeds, domestic breeds or rare botanical specimens, are truly in the eye of the beholder. The Wayward Plant Registry sets up Halfway Homes for these unwanted plants, and works to bring out the full potential of their beauty and meaning. The Registry considers systems of exchange, the personification of plant-life, the human stories revealed through plant migrations, and the nature of botanical desire. Know of a wayward plant? Wish to be a halfway home? Please contact:

In Defense of Mariah Carey and Genoa's Duplex Ride

Presentations We'll say this: there aren't many people who are bigger fans of Mariah Carey than Tom McBride. In his presentation (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 1), he shares the enthusiasm and infectious passion he has for his biggest idol. In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1) by Marco Cacciamani we learn about Duplex Ride, a cultural association founded in 2010 and interested in all forms of art, which mainly organizes events for electronic music and video projections. 
Duplex Ride is an idea in motion, it's an art collective, electronic research, experimenting in all its forms, including painting, photography, and writing. Posters There's no new addition to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight one of the posters we recently added. Above, a dog takes care of washing down last month's PKN Mendoza Vol. 5.  Photos We now have full galleries of photos from last week's PKN Tokyo Vol. 94 to share, which you'll find on both Facebook and Flickr. All photos were taken by our regular photographer, Michael Holmes, along with his assistant Nomi.  Calendar We have three PKNs happening tonight (August 2): PKN Winter Harbor Vol. 6, PKN Springfield, IL Vol. 8, and PKN Victoria Vol. 10. Tomorrow you can look to these three cities: PKN Panjim Vol. 3, PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 7, and PKN Hakata Vol. 7.

Ice Cream Bells Are Ringing

Just last week in Chicago (at PKN Chicago Vol. 25), Michael and Diane Jackson gave a presentation on their 20 years of marriage. Little did Diane know that Michael had an extraordinary surprise in store for her: After waiting 20 years, Michael was finally able to give me my surprise wedding gift. In 1993 he had secretly booked and paid for a Mr. Whippy ice-cream van to be our getaway vehicle to take us to our honeymoon suite. We stood with our assembled guests outside Stanley House and waited. Sadly Mr. Whippy did not show. Michael has been harboring a sense of loss and regret ever since. Last night, following our PechaKucha presentation about the saga of our 20 years together, I hear that familiar sickly sound of ice-cream bells. Parked outside Martyrs was the vehicle of my dreams, complete with the customary beer cans (Boddingtons of course) tied behind. Please note Chicago had a major snow storm yesterday which makes this act of love even more unbelievable. We served ice-creams to everyone who attended PK and then set off into the night, bells ringing, cans clanking to our home in Rogers Park. I still can't believe my crazy husband. What's more, the owners keep the vehicles in storage over the winter and so the ice-cream van is now on my insurance. I am the luckiest girl in the world. Truth be told, upon the arrival of this little ice-cream truck, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Take a look at Chicago's Vol. 25 event page for more photos of this memorable event.

How Riding a Bike Taught Me about Prejudice

“Riding a bike in a car-dominated culture is an inherently political act.” Cyclist by necessity Andrew Kurjata speaks about the danger of sharing space in a city full of giant metal road-roving vehicles. In “How Riding a Bike Taught Me about Prejudice” from PKN Prince George Vol. 1, he shows us how his run-ins with automobiles on the road have given him a tiny slice of insight as to what it means to be discriminated.
