PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 7
Another PechaKucha Night for Tel Aviv, another amazing audience of 2,000. Organizers Anat Safran and Itay Mautner send in this report.
One night. 9 presenters. 2000 people.
Yes, another big success for PechaKucha in Tel Aviv. While people were taking their places, drinking and chatting a stunning graphic presentation of typographic work was projected on the 3 big screens. Right after that, at 20:20, our presenters came up on stage and left us all excited, happy and thoughtful.
We had a designer that creates chocolate boxes inspired by local political and social issues. An interactive project that showed us what the average Israeli looks like. A show where actors faces were replaced by huge masks on which videos are projected. Some video-art projects that were made of mixing and mashing famous movies scenes. The lead singer of a virtual band presented her band's stop motion clips, video game and music. A light designer exposed us to the handmade fabrication process of her amazing creations. A Japanese-Israeli dancer has created a special piece involving live dance show, live music and video. A young illustrator showed monsters that wake up at night on the sidewalks of the city. And a brother and sister who created an amazing project of interactive art: a taxi that allows a passenger in one city to experience a live trip in Jerusalem.
As if all that wasn't enough, we also made our version of the cell-phone photo. It was really amazing seen from the stage.
We're taking 5 minutes to relax and than we'll start working on PechaKucha Tel Aviv Vol.8, set for December. Thank you all, and we hope to see you in Tel Aviv real soon.
