Tokyo Totem - A Subjective Guide
BY EDWIN GARDNER
@ VOL 126
ON JUN 24, 2015
"This entire environment that is [Tokyo] is completely made by man, so we're effectively living in the collective imagination of mankind."
At PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 126, Dutch explorer Edwin Gardner introduces a new type of city guide called "Tokyo Totem" which attempts to look at Tokyo in a more experiential sense. Compiling a purely objective guide of the largest city in the world is simply exercise in futility, hence Gardner's fresh angle. The book is coming together with a long list of collaborators over many visits to Tokyo. Tokyo Totem will be released later this year, so be on the lookout for it and we will keep you updated!
Replica Makes It Better
BY HERVÉ HUMBERT
@ VOL 157
ON MAY 30, 2018
French artist Hervé Humbert reproduces preexisting “classics” from design, architecture and art history. In his process of building a replica, he engages in a dialogue with the object, traces and manually repeats what is visible in the model. He interprets the precursor by his selection of materials and sizes, by transposing details and contexts, making everything, wherever possible, by hand. The replica is only identical to its precursor at first glance. It becomes an industrially unrepeatable unique through subjective perception and Humbert's specific handwriting.

The 'Dear Hunter' are architects, but they are different from any other architect office. They're not striving for buildings: they're after the experience of people like you and me, regarding our surroundings. Their philosophy is based on techniques of the hunt.
Hunting transforms all our senses and makes us extremely aware of our surroundings. Through various hunting techniques they don’t hunt deer, but the dearest thing to man: subjective values within the human environment, personals spatial experiences and perception. They gather this information to use it in the fields of architecture, design and urban planning.

Living an Informed Life: Why Science Matters
BY DON LINCOLN
@ VOL 3
ON MAY 12, 2016
There are a great variety of principles that people use to guide them in their lives and these principles can be subjective or objective in origin. While our decisions are inevitably subjective, Don Lincoln believes that the best decisions are informed by objective facts and he argues that the scientific method is the most disciplined technique ever devised to reveal objective truth.
Open Science et Expérimentation animale
BY PIERRE DRION
@ VOL 4
ON NOV 24, 2016
Le débat en matière d’expériences sur animaux porte, par essence, sur des valeurs qui ont, par définition, une forte connotation subjective. Il pourrait sembler par exemple que les commissions d’éthique animales doivent partir du principe que les intérêts de l’homme (ou d’une espèce animale) pèsent plus lourd que les intérêts des animaux d’expérience. En aucun cas cependant dans une mesure telle que tout intérêt de l’homme (ou d’une espèce animale) prévale sur n’importe quel intérêt de l’animal…
Strictement mettre en œuvre les méthodes -des plus simples aux plus sophistiquées- qui contribuent à améliorer le bien-être des animaux enrôlés en recherche transcende les notions d’éthique et constitue certainement également une obligation morale qui dépasse de loin le cadre légal à partir du moment où le simple mérite de ce cadre légal est de proposer un cadastre du minimum qui soit à faire… Veiller à rechercher, identifier, critiquer et développer toute méthodologie qui puisse permettre de quitter le modèle animal au profit d’autres modèles est également une tâche à laquelle chacun doit s’astreindre.
Le sujet dresse le portrait d’une science qui s’autocritique. D’une science qui évolue en mettant à plat les enjeux, les risques et les bénéfices. D’une science qui veut faire sienne l’évolution (voire la révolution) des mentalités, (r)évolution à laquelle chaque chercheur se doit de participer. Et l’évolution passera également par la communication.

André Mintz is a visual communicator and artist, as well as founding member of the Marginalia Project, "an art experimentation collective focused on a critical -- but mostly ludic -- approach to new media and new media art." For PechaKucha Night in Lima Vol. 2 he talked about one his projects, a video entitled Paik for Kids. That city's organizer Jules Bay sends in a proper explanation of the piece. In the video Paik for Kids –- made by André Mintz out of family archive -– the electronic image theme is developed from the point of view of the spectator, in the figure of a child being presented by her dad to a TV set that displays the image of the child herself captured by the camera in real-time. It’s not a direct antecessor of Marginalia Project, but a conceptual antecessor, that shows already the problematic with which the project relates to. The relation between body and image -- between one’s self and its representation -- in a gaze that seeks by the naivety the revelation of intrinsic characteristics of the materiality of the image. In a moment in which the video image -- with its specific characteristics, such as its accessibility to a larger amateur public and its simultaneity -- was also in its childhood, with the first explorations of its potentials. By placing the camera framing the image itself produces, the system feeds back itself, multiplying the image it captures ad infinitum, like two mirrors facing each other. It’s a basic procedure of video -- that was impossible in traditional cinema -- used in many works in this field, and that will also be used in marginalia. However, such procedure is quite different from the mirrors, since the body of the spectator is detached from the image formation, allowing her only to perceive it -- as her movement does not make it possible to see anything beyond what the camera sees. The playing of getting into and out of the frame reveals the fragmentation produced by the camera, just as the similarities and distinctions between the body of the spectator and represented body -- between the subjective point of view and the view of the self made objective. Marginalia Project seeks an experience close to this childish one: an exploratory will without a predetermined objective beyond the knowledge offered by the process; in process. The idea as a product of experience; of the direct contact with the materiality from which it elaborates its own form and detonates new processes.
