PKN Is Your Source of Inspiration

Coverage from last week's PechaKucha Night in New York has been spreading far and wide through the webscape, and I have to say I'm quite fond of the title from this post at Edificial: I Went to PechaKucha And All I Got Was This Nagging Sense That I Should Be Doing More With My Life Words to live by.

Sound Inspiration for Art, What We Eat, and Photos from San Sebastian

Presentations In Paula Alasad Asbell's presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2), "sound mind" is not a reference to a psychological state, but refers instead to the source of the inspiration for her art: her favorite music and musicians. Tomas Popp uses his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) to take a closer look at what we eat, where it comes from, and how it affects us all. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Portsmouth Vol. 12's "Earth" poster you see above, which continues this year's themed series (the previous two were for "Air" and "Fire"). The other poster is for PKN Louisville Vol. 9. Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for the recent PKN San Sebastian Vol. 10 (also known as PKN Donostia). Above, a look at the very happy crowd.  Calendar Here's what you can look forward to this weekend, starting with tonight's (September 21) events: PKN Lucerne Vol. 5, PKN Vancouver Vol. 23, PKN Gisborne Vol. 10, and PKN London Vol. 8, which is part of this week's Lond Design Festival. On Saturday we have PKN Taipei Vol. 21, PKN Tallinn Vol. 5, PKN Hjorring Vol. 1, PKN Geneva Vol. 8, and PKN Lausanne Vol. 10, and then on Sunday it's PKN Kyoto Vol. 8.

Felipe Francisco De Souza

Don't forget that our last PechaKucha Night of the summer is happening this Wednesday (July 31). For the past week we've been highlighting all of the presenters or our Vol. 105, and continue today with Felipe Francisco De Souza. Here, he explains in his own words the topic of this presentation: Japan, a nation with a high likelihood for natural disasters, over the past 100 years, spent considerable efforts to achieve better technical-technological results for it urban reality transformation. Throughout this entire process, methods for territorial planning were institutionalized over the country, mostly participative processes aiming to control urban sprawl and to implement infrastructure and land pattern changes without the extensive use of expropriation. If you compare Japanese cities like Nagoya, Hiroshima or Tokyo, year after year, decade after decade, you will realize massive transformation - new roads, railways, buildings, and public greens. But how they do that? What can we learn from Japanese urban development practices that can contribute for a better urban future worldwide? Read more about Felipe's research.PechaKucha Night 東京105のプレゼンター、Felipe Francisco De Souzaさんが都市計画方法について発表をして下さいます(7月31日、水曜日)。

The Sound of a Tree

Have you listened to the breathing of the world's oldest living beings? Simon Fageus went to great lengths to help give his grandfather a long-forgotten feeling of the forest trekking he used to be able to accomplish. In "The Sound of a Tree" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 113, we see that this led Simon to start on a quest to record the sounds of the oldest trees in the world, first in Sweden, then in Japan.


Coming soon!

We're just getting started here in Lambertville, NJ and New Hope, PA, in conjunction with the First Friday gallery events happening on either side of the river. Please get in touch if you would like to present or host, and look for word of our first PKN coming soon!

The Chicago House Sound

"The kick drum went through my chest, the bass line came up through the floor, the high hats and cymbals came fizzing from above ... when the smoke machine cleared, there were rich people, poor people, black, white, straight, gay ...and I thought, 'these are my people now, this is my music'."In The Chicago House Sound from PechaKucha Night Chicago Vol. 36, IDEO's Neil Stevenson went on a quest to find the roots of House Music that, during its evolution from New York to Chicago and then in its momentum across Europe, he fell in love with.
