Less Space, More Life

BY WILL JOHNSTON
@ VOL 27 ON NOV 15, 2015

Will Johnston had it all, everything we are taught to want if we want the defacto "American Dream": condo, car, career... But it wasn't right, it just did not fit. So he found himself downsizing his life and hitting the road and by doing so he... Awakened. Hear Johnston's message to us all of how downsizing life can lead to something totally unexpected.

The Road Less Traveled

BY YVONNE (E.V.) JONES
@ VOL 4 ON AUG 11, 2016

"I became almost obsessed with writing this story, as if someone was telling me 'You need to get this out on  paper.'"

In "The Road Less Traveled" from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 4, E.V. Jones examined how events in her life, both good and bad, led her down the path to where she is today, a published author, a registered nurse, and mom of six children. Story writing and -telling was a form of therapy for Yvonne’s oldest son, who was diagnosed with auditory processing disorder. Story nights turned into The Wish, an original story written by . This first book became a series that was picked up by a publishing company.

Tough times don't last, tough men do!

BY LQ CHIAM
@ VOL 11 ON JUL 22, 2017

The only certainty in life is the uncertainty of life. When you have an option, choose the best one. When you don't have an option, do your best. If you are positive enough, you will still see the good things in bad times. Every cloud has a silver lining! LQ Chiam explains.

Living less with the car

BY PAUL OSBORNE
@ VOL 15 ON MAR 16, 2018

York remains a unique and attractive city, in part because it has always sought to deter cars from entering the city centre.  The historic core has been preserved by pedestrianisation, cycle routes, car parking policies, and park and ride.  But as the city grows, how do we nurture the city’s wider neighbourhoods to become less car reliant? Paul Osborne discusses how can developers tempt us with car-free living rather than automated double garage doors? And what do we all stand to gain from living less with the car?

Liu Hsiang Yi (Red Bean) Live More, Fear Less

BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SHENZHEN
@ VOL 36 ON APR 21, 2018

这其中最让我动容的,除了关于设计、关于建筑、关于工作的经历,还有那些将细小乐趣变成工作的执着,那些与家人难舍难分的情感与回忆。

Apart from the design, the architecture, the experience of work, the most touching thing is the feeling and memories between her and her family.

Less is More

BY ROBERT HOOKE
@ VOL 23 ON MAR 16, 2018

Robert Hooke, who sculpts in stone and bronze, has exhibited in the US, Europe, Australia, and South Africa. Robert served four years as an officer in the Navy, including a year in Vietnam where he was awarded the Bronze Star and Navy Commendation Medal. While working on Wall Street, he studied sculpture with Herbert Kallem at the School of Visual Arts. Robert’s business career took him to London in the mid-seventies, where he continued making sculpture and had his first show at the Alwyn Sculpture Gallery off Bond Street. He returned to the US in 2009 and made his way to Sag Harbor, where he continues to create. Art critic Eric Ernst said, “Hooke elicits secrets from his silent figures by understanding the obvious and emphasizing the inferred.” Robert’s work emphasizes stance, the body position assumed by instinct or purpose, while adhering to the famous quote of Miles Davis: “Creativity is not the notes you put in, but the notes you leave out”.
