What Colour is Your Blood?

BY DAVE MAZIERSKI
@ VOL 32 ON JAN 20, 2015

Colour plays many roles in medical and anatomical illustration: representational and symbolic, qualitative and quantitative, diagnostic and aesthetic. While some colour choices may seem obvious (such as red to represent blood), there is much more history, nuance and interpretation than meets the eye. Amongst other topics, Dave Mazierski presented the five different colours of blood, the wheel of urine, and the truth behind the real and imagined colours of our inner and outer anatomy.

The Moon is my Scholar Rock

BY MATTHEW CUMMINGS
@ VOL 18 ON FEB 11, 2016

"I was really interested in the challenge of replicating these textures, patterns, and forms of meteorites."

For Matthew Cummings, artwork has always been personal journey for escape and meditation in both the making process and viewing.  "The Moon is my Scholar Rock" from PechaKucha Night Knoxville Vol. 18 is a look at the work from his last solo exhibition, 'The Moon is my Gongshi'.  This group of work examined the moon as an object of meditation, the tradition of Chinese Scholar Rocks or Gongshi, and the inspiring career of his grandfather-in-law, Charles Bradshaw, who ran the computations department for NASA during the development of Rocket Technology. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, May 24th, 2016.

Beware the Calendar

BY GIULIANA SERENA
@ VOL 24 ON MAR 30, 2018

There’s a powerful story being told over and over that influences the way most people experience life here on this planet. It’s so deeply ingrained at this point that the vast majority of folks alive today may never come to question it. In this talk, Giuliana Serena invites us to get curious about how the way we track time influences our experience of it, and how we might learn to connect more fully with nature by attuning ourselves to the cycles of the moon, the sun, and our own bodies.
