PKN San Francisco Vol. 31

After Tokyo, the longest-running PechaKucha Night is in San Francisco, and that city's organizer Paul Jamtgaard sends in the following report for last week's Vol. 31. Our 31st event continued along the same upward trends we've been enjoying for 3 years!! They just keep getting better. The line outside was becoming a problem while we made the last preparations, but we were happy to welcome over 300 people, coming back to our old stomping grounds at 330 Ritch in the South of Market to see 11 fantastic presentations that included more than one first for PK-sf, among them an artistic aerial trapeze performance and a live jazz trio. While DJ Dan Senatore was jetting about Europe, DJ Joe filled-in with some excellent rolling vibes that more than filled the space when Keith Chamberlain and his jazz trio were not giving us all some seriously cool atmosphere -- we all looked sexier when they played. His presentation on the evening's theme of "CHANGE" launched with Shiva the god of destruction and creativity, and wove a line of thought right through the centerline of a stem cell's first steps of growth...he left the room wowed and awed. Not to be outdone, the aerial performance duo of Kate & Alayna AKA "Bow & Sparrow" spun the room's attention round to the middle of the space. Kate performed a sensual dance 7 feet off the ground while images of their performances flashed across the screen. Architect Jerry Griffin gave an eye-popping crash course in how far a sustainable building can go in the Synergy Center project he has been designing, and Frederick Gibson shared his practice's work from Califiornia to New Zealand. Travel writer Edward Hasbrouck challenged everyone not only to go out and see the world, but also -- because it will be increasingly difficult to do it -- to make the most of this fading opportunity to connect to this human race of ours. The next edition of PKN San Francisco is set for March 13 at UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design. The theme for the evening will be "STIMULATE."
