Lyla is a lady living in Chelsea NYC. She currently directs public programs and events at Columbia University GSAPP and was once called a swiss army knife. She is a logistics maverick, and has always wanted someone to refer to her as a maverick, and at PK Brooklyn Volume 8, we did!

Memory Imprints of Papua New Guinea

@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

"Memories were triggered and ideas for drawing came flooded back into my mind."

In Memory Imprints of Papua New Guinea from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast, visual artist Ulrike Sturm focuses on her work with artist’s books, printmedia, and visual narratives. As a teen Ulrike lived in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea (PNG). The impact of that amazing experience never really left her and she cherished the vivid childhood memories she had of those years. It is perhaps strange then, that she didn’t go back there for such a long time, only once until two months ago. Ulrike’s Pecha Kucha talk is therefore about her recent trip to PNG, what adventures she encountered, and how all this relates to her creative practice as a visual artist.  This includes her ephemeral vinyl artworks – many of which draw on memory and are destroyed at the end of the exhibit.

In "Can Memory be Restored?" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol.31, Researcher from Maastricht University, Sarah-Anna Hescham shares new techniques that are being explored to manage and even restore memory loss. Remembering and forgetting are two important sides of the same coin that help us manage our day to day lives. But for some people, especially the elderly, forgetfulness is a common occurrence... Does a cure exist?
