From Flaneur to Panneur

@ VOL 110 ON JAN 22, 2014

In the 19th century, flaneurs leisurely walked the arcades of their cities and saw what they could see. In the 20th century, from high-rise buildings voyeurs utilized cameras or binoculars to peer into the lives of others from afar. Architect and thinker Antoine Vaxelaire proposes that we, citizens of the new millennium, are panneurs or those who pan the surface of the earth (or in our case, the internet), never going too deep, for information.

Shaping Space and Realities

@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

The Wolfsonian Digital

Derek Merleaux was charged with the task of putting the entirety of the Wolfsonian's massive collection of mostly-20th century works online, and in the public domain. With a figure in the realm of 2 million pieces of art, we imagine he found himself saying, "one does not simply upload content to a website." In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Miami Vol. 20), Derek speaks of the trials involved in not only hoisting this collossal amassing on to the world wide web, but the legal hoops he's had to jump through in dealing with copyright law often associated with this sort of work.

Analog Creation in a Digital World

“What you use influences what you create. I say, take that into consideration, try putting down the macbook, pull out a notebook, and get your Hemingway on.” In Analog Creation in a Digital World from Pechakucha Night Salt Lake City Vol. 16, Tyson Call, who is a writer, photographer, and motorcycle rider, talks about his story. For Tyson, however, sitting down to write on a computer creates too many distractions. Receiving a typewriter as a gift opened up a whole new perspective on the creative process and created a connection to the inner workings of other great writers like Hemmingway, Steinbeck, and Hunter S. Thompson. In this presentation, Tyson, muses on analog creation in a digital world and asks, "What have you done with a piece of paper? Nothing!"
