PKN Tampa Needs More Wine
Overhead from PechaKucha Night in Tampa organizer Ken Cowart, following last Friday's Vol. 6: When you hear the bartender shout, "We are going to need more red wine, a lot more..." you know things are going well.
It's that time of the year when we receive a lot of holiday and New Year wishes from many of our organizers, and here's an image that we liked, to represent 2012. It was sent to us by Vicenç Mulet of VMA Projectes, who was behind this recent one-off PechaKucha event in Palma.
In this presentation recorded at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 89 -- part of the Global Cities Week -- PechaKucha co-founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham give us a tour of the "wired" landscape that any Tokyo resident will be familiar with.
Crowd Goes Wild
Our good friends at Chicago-based Table XI -- the amazing talent behind the site your are currently visiting -- have some nice things to say about PK, which makes us very happy. Congratulations to our friends and partners at PechaKucha, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary today! As the development team who launched their new site, we’re very proud to be part of this global movement. The founders of PechaKucha—Japanese for “chitchat”—revolutionized the PowerPoint presentation a decade ago, creating a new format in which speakers are limited to 20 slides or images that auto-advance every 20 seconds. Though it started as an informal gathering of architects in Tokyo, the concept quickly expanded: Now 600 cities around the world host their own “PechaKucha Nights” featuring talks from designers, engineers, artists, photographers, chefs, writers, and more. Read more about Table XI's work on the PK site in this case study.
Top 5 Winged, Finned, Four-legged Presentations
Whether it flies, swims, trots, climbs, or simply walks, here are the top 5 PechaKucha 20x20 presentations featuring our fellow members of the animal kingdom. First, we hear PhD zoology researcher Mike Dickison's attempt to figure out Big Bird's exact genus and species. (What, if Anything, Is Big Bird?) We'll then listen to Steven Stark document his fascinating experiences while bee-keeping. (My Bees) Coming in third is National Geographic diver Mark Addison's amazing presentation on his life swimming with sharks. (Give Sharks a Chance) Lesley Ann Beck takes the format in an interesting and unique direction as she takes us through a day in the life of her dog -- from a first-person perspective. (A Dog's Life) Rounding it all out we have Glen Chilton's intriguing research into extinct, rare, and endangered animal species. (Rare Species)
Drink Wine, Eat Chocolate
"Getting more pleasure, and enjoying [life] more, together." Good motto. Contemporary Swedish glass designer Åsa Jungnelius is interested in what is considered genuine or fake, and how value is created around an object. In "Drink Wine, Eat Chocolate" from a special Swedish Style x PechaKucha edition of PKN Tokyo (Vol. 66), we see that Åsa often uses stereotypes as a language that informs her design theory, and challenges the conventional meaning of these formulae.
Urban Innovation Winners
It's been a month since the first PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month came to a close. Dozens of projects were submitted from all over the world, from Buenos Aires to Vienna, from Lisbon to Vancouver. Each project is unique, but they all have one thread in common: they're all insanely passionate people looking to make life in the city better for the rest of us. The New Cities Foundation went through the over 30 submissions and chose two among them to be flown out to Dallas, Texas this June 17-19 to speak at the WhatWorks workshop at New Cities Summit 2014. To find out who won, have a look to our latest global newsletter in which we announce the winners.
Keeping Up with the Wind
Bet you've never seen a better visualisation of the earth's weather than this: After happening upon a website that displayed the United States' wind patterns visually one day, Cameron Beccario set out to do something even grander. In "Keeping Up with the Wind" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 116, months of research and tinkering later, and after finding numerous sources of up-to-date weather data, he had created Earth: an animated map of global wind and weather.
Gardens of Winter
“What caught my eye was the border between the man made landscape, and the natural landscape.” Printmaking MFA graduate Hannah Skoonberg speaks on her art work, which explores the concepts of memory and object. In “Gardens of Winter” from PKN Knoxville Vol. 5 she speaks about how her art — composed mostly of paper — is fragile, vulnerable, and though based on real-life useful objects is unusable due to the material used in its construction.
Harnessing Wild Horses
“My mom raised me and I quickly because an independent little person with a lot of personality.” In Harnessing Wild Horses from PechaKucha Night New Orleans Volume 18 Musa Alves is a DJ, photographer, international fun haver, cheeseburger enthusiast, Brazilian redneck. In this presentation Musa goes chronologically through her life because reckless youth has been a constant theme. She is the product of a Mississippi Delta Debutant and a Brazilian bassist. In her life, she has fallen off the horse a few times, but has always managed to get back up. Whether reckless youth has led to ambition or ambition has led reckless youth, Musa has always carved her own path by harnessing the wild horses that drives you to do the things that scare you, and challenge you, and make you vulnerable.
