The Pictures in the Hall

BY DOUG SMITH
@ VOL 3 ON OCT 26, 2011

"He was introducing the Ziggy Stardust persona. It was obvious to everybody that it was going to be absolutely massive. I remember being aware that I was witnessing something special, the emergence of a star."

In The Pictures in the Hallway, from PechaKucha Night Derby Vol. 3, Doug Smith shares an absolutely amazing PechaKucha about photos taken in London 40 years ago, of rock legends of a phenomenal era of music. Photos of Bowie, Eno, Dury, and others now gracing his hallway in Derby, an ultimately cool testament of Smith's love for music. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on November 2nd, 2013 and again on January 14th, 2015 following the passing of David Bowie.

Inspirational Coincidences

BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

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.

Tin's Running Story

BY DUY TÍN
@ VOL 9 ON OCT 01, 2016

"People sometimes sneer at those who run every day, claiming they'll go to any length to live longer. But don't think that's the reason most people run. Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but BECAUSE............" - Murakami - What I Talk About When I Talk About Running.

Tin ran 70km in Sapa in Vietnam Moutain Marathon 2015. There were 156 runners (including 21 Vietnamese) participating in this 70km run. Tin was one of the only 8 Vietnamese who could complete the route. And, last month he accomplished a new record of running 100km around HCMC!

If you are curious how this slim and quiet man could do it, let’s listen to his unbelievable story.

Raise the Roof

  Architecture and design forms an integral part of our lives. Our physical space influences us in numerous ways and quiet often dictates our moods and behaviour. It has the power to define a city, a society, a country, a culture. It can motivate us, and even subjugate us. In this volume of PechaKucha Nights we will be talking about how architecture helps us express and define ourselves. If you are interested in presenting, send in your ideas and a few sample images on info@kuchkhaas.org latest by 27th February 2018. For details click :https://www.facebook.com/events/618456498486180/
