BY JONATHAN GALES
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

Gaelic Nova Scotia

BY MARLENE IVEY
@ VOL 21 ON SEP 24, 2016

Nurtured in the kinship systems and culture of Cape Breton Island, by the waves North Eastern Atlantic, never far from water’s ways, art and design has taken me briefly to the compasses arts, always returning to the shore to address environmental and now, ethno-sphere concerns – the renewal of a hidden minority culture, Gaelic Nova Scotia.

Scott Silvey

Tokyo-based artist Scott Silvey was at last month's edition of PechaKucha Night in Tokyo (Vol. 61), with a presentation focusing on the decaying urban landscapes seen in his latest series of works, "Civic Remedies." From the artist's site: Within a decaying urban landscape, vending machines, street lamps, electric poles and meters stand as sentinels among the dwellings where people once lived. Because of unabated consumption the skeletal remains of human production are all that linger in the half-light. The only remaining inhabitants are the fertile mounds of soil in which medicinal herbs have germinated. These healing plants have returned to restore health to an ailing world. The series was first shown last year at the gallery in All-Nippon Airlines' Signet Lounge (Haneda Airport), and will next be exhibited at the Whitespace gallery in Atlanta, from May 22 until July 3.

As we've mentioned, the "PechaKucha for Haiti" efforts continue all this month, as we upload as many presentations as we can to the site to help raise money for the cause. One of the latest additions is this one, presented at the Chicago/Champaign-Urbana PechaKucha event on the 20th of last month, featuring Scott Thomas talking about how he helped design Obama's campaign. So instead of going out for a coffee, sit down for a few minutes and enjoy Scott's presentation, and then pitch in a few dollars to the reconstruction efforts.
