Past Williamsburg Event: VOL 7

Large wide pkn 07 20copy


May 24, 2014
@ Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists Church

Come out to enjoy an evening of the unpredictable unusual. PechaKucha is a unique presentation format where creatives get to show 20 slides for 20 seconds each while telling you about their thoughts. It's fast paced, entertaining, unpredictable, and surprisingly inspiring. Chit chat is encouraged and snacks are always available. Doors at 7pm and we start the presentations when it gets dark enough.

Eye Spy

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

When Dale Weiss started noticing images of single eyes showing up in his Facebook feed, he started annoying all his freinds with games of 'I Spy With My One Eye.' In this PechaKucha, he takes the game up a notch, but was clever enough to launch rolled up dollar bills into the audience as an incentive to guessers.

Progression of an Artist

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

Few people would dispute that art is a journey. Kelly Seeber shares her personal artistic journey from childhood to discovering her own distinct style visible in her current work, and all of the inspirations that guided her along the way.

Art is a Matter of Perception

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

This is Jessica Sweat's third PechaKucha presentation, and we can see the progression and growth she is developing in both her technique and thought behind what she creates. As in her previous PechaKucha's, she presents a combination of her art and her poetry.

The Silk King - The Mystery Continues

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

Is it creepy for an old man to be collecting silks? You will need to watch this presentation by Jim Thompson, the self-claimed unknown heir to the Thai silk fortune. But be forewarned, the mystery may continue.

Analog Photography 4: Playing With Dirt

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

Lulú De Panbehchi is back with round 4 of her analog photography. This time she is soaking her film in dirt and water before loading it into a toy (i.e. less expensive) camera. She then captures her part of the world in film and examines the results, reading life philosophies from the film.

Vector Painting

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

Bob Oller is skilled in many media. For this PechaKucha he shares a wonderful collection of artwork he has created using a vector based illustration program, yielding results that appear anything but digital. Bob explains the great control in both linework and color achieved from this method, but the real beauty comes from the skill of the artist's hand in this collection.

CoWork Williamsburg

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 24, 2014

CoWorking is becoming popular in larger urban centers as people are shifting to telecommuting models and entrepeneurship is on the rise. As a self employed journalist in Williamsburg, Natalie Miller-Moore sees the need for it in our less-than-urban small city. So she has helped found CoWork Williamsburg and is here to compare and contrast the pitfalls of working from home or a coffee shop with the benefits of a cowork space. Because, afterall, a coffee shop is not a productive place to work.
