The Profound Beauty of Indigo

BY ROWLAND RICKETTS
@ UNITED STATES ARTISTS 2014 ARTISTS ASSEMBLY ON MAR 24, 2015

"The choice to plant, transplant, weed, harvest, winnow, dry, compost, and ferment indigo entirely by hand is longer one of necessity. It is political. It is beautiful. It is labour. It is life." 

In The Profound Beauty of Indigo from Chicago's Powered by PechaKucha Event: United States Artists 2014 Artists Assembly, Ronald Rickettsshares his story of moving to Japan to teach English and explore Japanese craft heritage. He discovered indigo leaves and had an apprenticeship at a Tokushima dye factory. He became an indigo farmer, dyer and visual artist. His work developed into creating installations, establishing a social practice and spreading the indigo art. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Tuesday, August 12th, 2015.

Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth

BY LAURIE ANN GUERRERO
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

"This poem is an ode to every hard-working artist who knows the joy of struggle from which their art comes."

In Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth from PechaKucha Night San Antonio Vol. 20, poet laureate, Laurie Ann Guerrero looks back at her ancestors’ history of labor and struggle as art, a legacy of poets, musicians, and painters whose artistry was a way to map and ultimately transcend the world. Art, she says, is a pursuit of truth. It was her ancestor’s many generations of that pursuit that ultimately gave her the privilege and position of being asked to make art: the maker, not the object. Through poetry, Guerrero invites us to share in that space of openness, vulnerability and ultimately grace.

The Science of Color in Nature

BY ANDY GORIS
@ VOL 3 ON JAN 18, 2018

We've all enjoyed the colors of a rainbow, or butterfly, or flower, but have you ever wondered how those colors are being created? Why is the sky blue, or grass green? The answers are as fascinating as the colors themselves. Andy Goris describes some of the many ways colors are produced in nature and hopes to instill a new type of awe in what you are actually seeing.

Unscripted Beauty

BY MURIEL BORDERS
@ VOL 17 ON OCT 21, 2017

Art and the concept of beauty are all very personal. What is beautiful to one - may be abhorrent to another. Muriel Borders’ presentation highlights some of the unscripted moments of her concept of beauty.  Many of these photographs are taken with a Sony Alpha 7, although some are taken with mobile phones as Muriel often finds herself in situations of fleeting beauty, without a camera, and has learned to make do with what I have at that moment so as not to lose the moment.
