A GARA COL TEMPO SENZA OROLOGIO – La Percezione del Tempo Negli Animali e Bambini.
BY EVELINA ISOLA
@ VOL 10
ON OCT 31, 2014
This project have been presented to the 12th edition of Genoa Science Festival, as a playful lab for kids. Do animals have perception of the time? According to some scientists, only humans have a real memory, while the other animals have a perception of the time limited or episodic. A different perception of time can have different utilities according to escape strategy, communication or feeding. Time and its perception are not relative only on physics books! This happens in a lot of very small animals, for example the flies that perceive the world with a slow motion effect.
In other species the perception of time is connected to their movement in the space, as in case of dolphin and bats biosonar. Children are conducted in a fascinating “time travel” in their time perceptions, from the perception that themselves have, to try out what other animals fell of time, according to the different utility in the survival strategies.

PKN Kite in Mar del Plata
We've been raving about those PechaKucha Night-branded kites seen in the imagery of the Mar del Plata's flyer, and co-organizer Sebastian (pictured right) sends in this photographic evidence of an actual physical version of the kite. That's it, we want one! And don't forget that the inaugural PKN in Mar del Plata happens on Thursday of this week (January 14).
Today we cover another presentation from PechaKucha Night in San Francisco Vol. 37 -- if you missed the presentation we featured yesterday by Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair, do take a look -- with Kirk Bergrstrom and his "Emergence Through Emergency" talk -- "When we understand nature's coordinate system, we learn how to do more with less."
Derby vs. Kenya
This weekend, in honor of the kids workshop we are holding as part of our special "PechaKucha x Design-ah exhibition" events at the 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT in Tokyo today, for our "Presentation of the Day" we've chosen a presentation from our Kids Channel. You're never too young to do a PechaKucha presentation, and so meet Archie, aged 7, who takes the opportunity to introduce us to his friend Jeremiah, aged 6, who lives in Kenya.
Exhibition "Design Ah!"
As part of Roppongi Art Night 2013, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT teamed up with the global PechaKucha organization for two very special sessions of 20x20 presentations -- part of the exhibition "Design Ah!" -- starting with a kids workshop during the day that was followed by a presentation session, and then a regular PechaKucha event for adults in the evening. The kids workshop took place before the session, with a group of children who had applied to take part. They all had a couple of hours to take photos of things they found interesting in the area, and then prepare a PechaKucha 20x20 presentation. The evening session featured a fun mix of design talent, and kicked off with a presentation by Roppongi Art Night’s artistic director Katsuhiko Hibino. Both session were hosted by PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, along with renowned graphic designer and director of the "Design Ah!" exhibition Taku Satoh.

As our final "Presentation of the Day" for the week -- and to kick off the weekend -- we hear from Sarkis Ghanaghounian (AKA Sako) who shares how he, as a city kid, loves growing up in a city and all the cool stuff he gets to experience. The presentation is in response to local politician Doug Holyday's recent comment about how Toronto is not the ideal city to raise children.
