Wayward plants...

BY HEATHER RING
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 09, 2009

Kicking off a new series of PechaKucha Nights in London... waywardplants.org The Wayward Plant Registry is a project of social exchange and botanical desire. A Wayward Plant, commonly referred to as a weed, is one growing where it is not wanted. They may be non-native, unsightly, invasive, high-maintenance, surplus or withering, and so are uprooted and abandoned, pulled from the earth (or pot!) as urban castaways. But wayward plants, whether common weeds, domestic breeds or rare botanical specimens, are truly in the eye of the beholder. The Wayward Plant Registry sets up Halfway Homes for these unwanted plants, and works to bring out the full potential of their beauty and meaning. The Registry considers systems of exchange, the personification of plant-life, the human stories revealed through plant migrations, and the nature of botanical desire. Know of a wayward plant?

PKN Providence in the News

Last week's PechaKucha Night in Providence Vol. 16 gets a rather nice recap thanks to this piece from The Providence Phoenix, and you gotta love a title like this: "Human contact is at the heart of PechaKucha." And how's this for a venue: The setting was perfect: outdoors at the Steel Yard, on the city's West side, on a clear summer night, with free wine and beer, a Haven Brothers truck, and big, spectacular art all around — from a sculpture made of bicycle parts to the Flower Tower, a 10-foot pyramid of plants.

Big congratulations go out to the organizers of PechaKucha Night in Victoria for being nominated as part of the Monday Mag M Awards. Here's co-organizer Elisa Yon with more on the nomination. We are not going to pretend that we don't care about awards, cuz we do! PechaKucha Night Victoria has been nominated in the M Award category for BEST MULTIMEDIA EVENT. We are honoured to have been recognized by our local community, and it would be vegan icing on the cake to win the prestigious M Award. Even if it's likely to be an award that's drinkable or edible! The Monday Mag is THE local weekly arts and entertainment (free) newspaper. It is quite a popular publication as it offers a round up of what's happening in the local arts and culture scene. Every year they host an awards ceremony to recognize Victoria's visual, literary and performing artists. This year will their 9th Annual M Awards. We are in the voting stage at the moment.

From Street Art to Hitchhiking, with a Bit of Birch Sap Drinking in Gothenburg

Here's our look at what's happening today in PechaKucha. Presentations We've got two new presentations on the site, one from Curitiba and one from St. Louis. In "The Street Is Alive" (in Portuguese), Jorge Galvao shares his graffiti work, and talks about his passion for street art, and then in "Hitchhiking for Sanity," Myles Dickason shares some of his hitchhiking adventures. Photos Here are today's event photos to take in, coming from a few of our PKN cities. Above, the scene at Providence's PKN Vol. 35, which was held back in February. PKN Kiruna Vol. 2 [Facebook] PKN Providence Vol. 35, as well as some older editons (Vol. 23, Vol. 24, Vol. 28) [Facebook] PKN San Diego Vol. 14 [Flickr] PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31 [Facebook] The photo above is from the recent PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31 (see the full Facebook gallery, all photos by Nettan Kock), and below is a report from that city's organizer, Jesper Larsson. You can also find all Gothenburg presentations (in Swedish) on its YouTube channel. On April 24th, we arranged our Vol. 31 of PechaKucha Gothenburg with a great turnout! Annelie Hulthén used mobile photos to show some of the backsides of the life of a politician. Our new city architect showed aerial photos of Gothenburg to show how much space is wasted on cars instead of human beings. Peter Korn told us about digging and how to plant exotic plants on stony Swedish hillsides. Sushi chef José Seruda spoke about "omakase" and his idea of Scandinavian sushi using locally produced fish and seafood. Siv Burell talked about the language Esperanto which celebrates 125 years this year. Klara Hansson spoke about perma culture and what's edible within the city centre. Jeanette Fagerström told the story that led up to her opening a sewing machine café in Gothenburg (similar to an internet café but with sewing machines instead of computers). Helena Andersson, Sebastian Popescu & Evelina Valtersson finished of the evening with a presentation about their project "Bostadsrotation" (residential rotation) where people change housing and routines with another person for a couple of days. In the break, Klara Hansson and her friends served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants such as Garlic-mustard, Celandine, Common wood sorrel, Dandelion, Sorrel, Lady's Mantle, Daisy, Rowan Leaf, Ground elder and last but not least Lovage. They also served fresh natural birch sap. In this walkthrough video during the beer break, organizer Jesper Larsson tries out the birch sap and talks to former presenter Sebastian Näslund about it. We totally forgot to celebrate it, but the last presentation of the evening was actually #300 since we started! Links Looking for some interesting PechaKucha-related articles? We've got you covered. The photo above shows the team behind the soon-to-launch PKN series in Muscat (the organizer, Sara Fida, is second from right). Some PKN Muscat coverage in the form of "Creative Connections" [The Week] "Speakers' series a hot ticket among young Vancouverites" [Metro Vancouver] "PechaKucha Night is back, bringing artists of all types together for creative conversation" [Denver Westworld] Calendar Tonight (May 16), it's PKN Wagga Wagga Vol. 6, and tomorrow night (May 17) you can look to these three events: PKN Hanoi Vol. 4, PKN For a peek at what's coming later this month, you can always check our calendar.

A Guide to Landscapes, Improving a Train Station, and Rampant Inspiration in Gothenburg

Presentations João Nunes is an architect, and in this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10) he talks about the challenges involved in working with landscapes. This usually means having to balance elements such as time, conditions, and the type of terrain, along with very different materials. In "A Rough Guide to Wakefield Kirkgate" (from PKN Barnsley Vol. 4), Sharon Shepherds shares a few ideas on what could be done to make the historic Wakefield Kirkgate station look better. Posters We've got two new additions to our Tumblr blog, including the poster for PKN Manizales Vol.  3 you see pictured above, as well as the two sides of the PKN San Antonio Vol. 6 flyer. Photos We have quite a few photo galleries to share with you today, some from PKNs that happened a while ago (so not necessary from a city's latest volume). Pictured above, PKN Hanoi Vol. 1.PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 9 [Flickr]PKN Marseille Vol. 17 [Facebook]PKN Catania Vol. 6 [Flickr]PKN Albury-Wodonga Vol. 1 [Flickr]PKN Hanoi Vol. 1 [Flickr] We shared a report by PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson recently (about the city's recent Vol. 31), and here's a follow-up on the topic of instant inspiration:Sometimes inspiration travels fast. The day after PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31, presenter and sushi chef José Seruda went out in the city to find edible ingredients inspired by Klara Hansson who presented about "The edible city" the same night, and during the beer break served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants. José's own hunt resulted in a brand new starter dish using Daisy, Garlic-mustard flower and Dandelion Leaf served as part of the omakase offering the same night at his restaurant Hoze. I'm guessing it's this kind of passion for experimentation with ingredients and flavors that might be the reason many consider Hoze one of Sweden's best sushi restaurants. Below is a video of Klara going hunting for wild plants in Gothenburg city on a previous occasion and within 30 minutes serving up a fresh mushroom salad. How has a PechaKucha presentation inspired you? Calendar As we covered yesterday, tonight's (Wednesday, May 23) calendar includes PKN Prague Vol. 29, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3, PKN Leksand Vol. 4, and PKN Copenhagen Vol. 20. Tomorrow is a big Thursday (May 24), with the following events on tap: PKN Istanbul Vol. 14, PKN Seattle Vol. 35, PKN Helsinki Vol. 21, PKN London Vol. 6, PKN Kosice Vol. 18, and PKN Yerevan Vol. 16.

Circadian Rhythm

Humans, plants, bacteria, fungi, and other animals show signs of a built-in 24-hour body clock -- this is what is known as the Circadian Rhythm. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Circadian Rhythm" from PKN Wellington Vol. 18, Philippa Gander goes into detail as to why oscillation is important to most lifeforms. Philippa is working to find a way to manipulate the circadian rhythm to help humans boldly go where none have been before.
