You may remember that it wasn't so long ago that Tokyo featured a presentation by an 11-year-old -- Kaden Cowan, whose presentation you can actually watch online -- and now it's Providence's turn to feature a very young presenter, Shae Janiga. Here's a report from organizer Stephanie Gerson. She was fabulous: her name is Shae Janiga and she's a 6th grader at Wyman School in Providence. She plays the piano, violin, and soccer, and Loves horseback riding. She also speaks fluent Slovak and Loves to travel. But most importantly, according to her, Shae is a great big sister to her 3 siblings. Her presentation was called "Global Soccer for All." She started by talking about how soccer has enriched her own life, e.g. by giving her the opportunity to make new friends, travel, and gain more self-confidence. Then she zoomed out to what soccer can do for countries, e.g. enabling the people of countries that have geopolitically tense relations to get along, and respect each other, on the field. (May I remind you she is 11!) But, there's one major problem. (And yes, she made us wait a whole 20 seconds on that 'problem' slide.) The problem being: that girls all over the world don't play soccer. In fact, in many countries, especially countries where women have fewer rights than men, women are actively discouraged from soccer. So how to solve this problem? Well, what she plans to do is live next year with her cousins in Slovakia, and start a girls soccer team there! (The entire audience erupts in cheer.) It was moving, thoughtful, self-aware, and well-delivered. And of course afterward, I got a slew of parents asking me if their kids could present, and we have a 10-year-old lined up for February. You can see more photos from PKN Providence Vol. 10 in this Flickr photoset.
"Visible Shell" is a year-long project by artist Erica Felicella, and you'll find out all about it in this presentation (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10), including how it was produced.
Due to their immense popularity these days, one may not know that the Gibson Thunderbird bass guitar (and its six-string equivalent, the Firebird) were actually the black sheep of the guitar industry upon their debut in the 1960s. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN London Vol. 4), Eero Koivisto discusses the unique history of the German-designed American guitar: he discusses Gibson's desires to spice up their brand in the 1960s, their commissioning of auto-designer Raymond Dietrich to accomplish this goal, its subsequent failure (in terms of sales), and rise to popularity over a decade later. The Gibson Thunderbird has since been used by numerous bands of note, including The Who, Sonic Youth, The Cure, Aerosmith, Guns and Roses, and many more. Eero tells us of his experience growing up in wonder of this particularly unconventional bass guitar, and how it inspired him both musically and in terms of design.
Designing Spaces with Interaction in Mind
How would you like to see like a sheep sees? Could you find your way through a maze using your sense of smell alone? Edwin Schlossberg speaks about designing places where people can both learn from one another and understand complex ideas using a mixture of no technology and high technology. In "Designing Spaces with Interaction in Mind" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 113, we see that Edwin has been designing facilities all over the world where people can learn and discover new things from each other’s experiences and from the tools held within.
Do we really want to live in cities full of skyrises? Urban planner Tay Pruecksamars attempts to summarize the research and work he has done in the past year. In particular he focuses on shop houses, which are generally despised by architects and urban designers, but which can serve multiple purposes, and use their space much more efficiently than many other types of buildings. In "Shop Houses" from PKN Bangkok Vol. 6, he proposes solutions to problems facing modern urban designers, and takes a closer look at the solutions shop houses can provide.
Shedding Light on Paradise
Alison Beste uses light to examine the relationship between artificial and natural constructs. Artist and photographer Alison Beste’s work explores the boundaries between the built and natural world through the use of light effects on the ocean horizon. In “Shedding Light on Paradise” from PKN Honolulu Vol. 20, Alison speaks about light from cities, vessels, and beacons as powerful metaphors for the ways we interact, manage, and attempt to control our environment.
The Story of Sheep
“‘Just imagine,’ ‘I wonder,’ and ‘What if’ are some of my favorite words in the English language. They conjure up the possible, the impossible, and the just plain crazy.” Abigail Walsh tells us a story of sheep, and his best friend bird. In “The Story of Sheep” from PKN Christchurch Vol. 21 we also hear about elephant, a retired mountain guide who sheep desires to meet. Abigail tells us how her story came to life, and how it was interwoven with her own.
Documenting Sunken Ship Sites
"I do exploration and documentation of shipwrecks and sunken aircrafts"In Documenting Sunken Ship Sites from Jackson, MS, Vol. 7 Kelly Gleason, PHD, an underwater archaeologist for NOAA in Honolulu, HI, describes how artefacts become historical record which in turn can create connection with our stories and civilisation as a whole. One shipwreck discovery, the Two Brothers, is significant because it tells more of the story that inspired the novel, Moby Dick. She indeed shows us how all of these discoveries coming from a remote reef in the northwest Hawaiian islands do have significance to us all.Enjoy

When the Fat Lady Sings, Does She Wear a Mic?
"There are at least a few common myths about opera that should be debunked!" In When the Fat Lady Sings, Does She Wear a Mic? from PechaKucha Night Baton Rouge Vol. 1, mezzo-soprano, Katherine Sherwood White debunks the myths surrounding opera. Sherwood White has performed leading roles with Cincinnati Opera, Central City Opera, Kentucky Opera Theater and Texas Opera Theater. She holds a bachelor of music degree from Northwestern State University, a master of music degree from the University of Texas and a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Kentucky. In other words, she knows a lot more about opera than the rest of us. And even what we think we know might turn out to be wrong...
