Talk Talk Talk

@ VOL 18 ON SEP 13, 2013

Robert Keteyian explores thought proccesses, and the we think and communicate. Everyone has different levels of auditory, kinesthetic, linguistic, and visual-spatial reasoning, which may account for difficulties in communication. By understanding these innate differences, we can become less judgemental and more accepting of one another.

The Power of Observation

@ VOL 26 ON SEP 27, 2013

Bob Hambly examines the topic of observation – how we've become visually complacent, how we are manipulated to see certain things, how important it is to have good observational skills, and how we can go about improving them. This is something we can all get better at. And the better we get at observing, the better we will get at generating creative ideas.

Discovering The Value of Graphic Design

@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

It is no easy take to create art, to somehow materialize and express the thoughts in your head. Creating art expressing the thoughts in someone ELSE's head is something else entirely. Elma Giavases' early life and subsequent travels around the globe have given her a unique perspective on design and branding, and she now brings that expertise to the Kalispell community as a graphic designer with Highline Design.

After all, "great designs delight".

Robots for All, the Art of Communication, and Bahraini Visuals

Presentations In a culture where robots are everywhere -- whether as a toy, in an industrial setting, or as a movie villain -- it's good to have someone like DJ Sures, CEO, roboticist, and the visionary behind EZ-Robot. Watch as he shares (from PKN Calgary Vol. 12) his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. With "The Art of Communication" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Michelle Thomé fully embraces the 20x20 format -- specifically, the numbering -- as she covers effective and efficient ways of speaking in public. Posters We've got a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today: the proper poster for PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1 (we shared the flyer a week or two ago), PKN Kingston Vol. 3, PKN Katowice Vol. 7, and the poster for tonight's PKN Bahrain Vol. 5, pictured above. PKN Bahrain organizer Mohammed Jannahi adds a few details for that poster: The poster is designed by Bahraini designer Muna Yateem, who recently launched her brand HARAKA (a common word used by Bahrainis which means to wear or do something with swagger). The idea behind the poster is making fun of Bahrainis and their reaction when they hear and pronounce PechaKucha, some find it very difficult and its even funnier when elder people try to say PechaKucha. The great thing about this parody is the fact that PechaKucha has an audience from all age groups and the word itself makes it "special" in Bahrain. And although not a poster, here's a look at the new logo for PKN Seoul -- the series has been on hiatus for quite a few years now, but is about to relaunch this summer. Photos We've got another fresh batch of photo galleries from around the web, and if you missed the live streaming of the recent PKN Edmonton Vol. 13, you can still watch the video here, courtesy of the Edmonton Journal.

Visualizing Taboos

The path of one's spoon marks the expedition, sites of spilled sugar are casualties; all part of the Scramble for Africa Afternoon Tea. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Visualizing Taboos" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 66, Jonathon Hagos' speaks on his design work, which primarily focuses on themes avoided in society. Among them are colonization, the subject of race, and (less controversial) the idea that buildings tell stories through their external textures. To learn more about Jon's recent work, check out his portfolio.

A Journey into the Virtual World

“I worked very hard to make no reference to the real world at all. It took me to some amazing places.” Architect and urban planner David Denton has been working in the Virtual World for seven years. In “A Journey into the Virtual World” from PKN Knoxville Vol. 12, he speaks about the folly of wanting to re-create the real world, and about the incredible tool that virtual reality is for creating entirely new worlds.

Borders Visualized

“The border is a very difficult place to describe. Anything I say about it, I'll also say the exact opposite about it.” In Borders Visualized from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, speaker Kerry Doyle presents the mission of the Rubin Center for Visual Arts at UTEP with a selection of work from exhibitions over the first 10 years.  Borders are meant to divide. As border tensions rise, artists –both performance and visual– have been creating works to represent the relationship between the bordering cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. The Rubin Center now has a decade’s worth of stories to show and tell.
