Art of Warning: Making of the Flood Drawings

@ VOL 8 ON SEP 13, 2016

"A few springs ago, I looked out over San Francisco Bay and I saw the city rising in the distance, above the fog, and I thought - I am going to draw water!"

In "Art of Warning: Making of the Flood Drawings" from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 8, artist Mary Ciani presented “Flood”, her recent series – from drawings of living in harmony with first rivers to urgent ones warning of storm and final deluge. She looks, too, at visionary artists with images of the past, future, inventive assemblage, and spiritual connection. Even a prayer to the earth is included here. The drawings were collected into a book and art show. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, October 26th, 2016.

The Importance of Place

@ VOL 8 ON SEP 13, 2016

"Places affect us, and we affect places." 

In "The Importance of Place" from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 8Eva Read-Warden explains how places have unique features and aesthetic qualities that differentiate them from ‘space’, as well as from one another.  They are where we become ourselves, connect to the world, and communities are formed. By making and preserving places, we create the opportunity to not only dwell comfortably but create a continuum on which others can build.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, October 17th, 2016.
