Symphonies of the City

@ VOL 25 ON SEP 20, 2013

Marc De Pape noticed that people are often indifferent to small changes in the weather. To combat this, Marc has created a tool that plays music differently according to the environmental conditions of its location. Sort of like a wind chime, but not restricted to just wind.

Mind Playin' Tricks

@ VOL 12 ON NOV 27, 2014

Art Director Marc ter Horst start elk project vanuit een helder gesteld concept. De kracht van zijn werk ligt in het maken van niet direct voor de hand liggende combinaties van thema’s, onderwerpen, symbolen of iconen waardoor nieuwe interessante verbanden en betekenissen ontstaan. In de uitvoering zoekt Marc naar visueel inspirerende oplossingen waarbij inhoud en vorm elkaar versterken. In zijn werk maakt hij geen onderscheid tussen autonome kunst en toegepaste kunst.

Het werk van Marc communiceert op een directe manier met als doel publiek op een nieuwe manier naar bestaande zaken te laten kijken.

Filtered Through the Red Scull Cap

@ VOL 13 ON MAR 06, 2015

Marc Wagner:

Raised on a healthy diet of cartoons and comic books, Marc Wagner’s playful drawings are deceivingly innocent. These bright colors tend to tell some dark stories. Marc’s current work addresses the subconscious mind, sometimes his own, by working quickly and watching to see what happens. He also addresses our culture’s bombardment of images, and the popular characters that have become cultural icons. Most of Marc’s images are marker & pen, but he will occasionally use his printmaking background for different imagery. 

Marc attended South Dakota State University, where he received a degree in Graphic Design. During his time at SDSU, he also pursued his interests in studio arts. Particularly, drawing and printmaking. After graduating in 2013, he moved to back to Sioux Falls with his wife and their dogs. In addition to his job at Dakota Lettering, Marc stays busy freelancing as an illustrator.

PKN Dortmund Gets BIG

As Marc wrote in the subject line of his message to us, "PECHAKUCHA GALORE." You can see the full list of presenters who participated, with links, on the official event page.

PKN Barcelona Vol. 10

The following is a report by PechaKucha Night in Barcelona organizer Petz Scholtus on last week's Vol. 10. PechaKucha Barcelona just celebrated its 10th volume last week, by filling the old Estrella Damm brewery with a very lively audience and some excellent speakers. The trash converters mantra trip band, the residual Gurus, performed to the 20 slides, after designer Alessandro Rancati expressed his passion for glass. Mateusz Staniewski showed breath-taking photos that were created by painting with light (watch the presentation here) and Nocko Nogués invited us to celebrate each day as if it was a music festival. Then, designer Marc Ligos confessed his love for subbuteo (a kind of table football), movie director Enric Soldevila revealed what went on behind the scenes of the making off the last Estrella Damm video spot, and architect Lucas Cappelli convinces us that we can do anything if we really go for it. Designer Santi Fuster took us through the ups and downs and many moves of his studio Bendita Gloria, and, Vialis-founder Jaime Sarramalera together with Surtido designer Marc Morro showed us how you can make "anything but a shoe." Last but not least, Tomas Diez explained how the Fab Lab in Barcelona can make (almost) anything, and Jordi and Pol from Pla&Fantoba design studio told the story of Mr. Need who learnt to invest into himself in order to become happy and successful in life.

Inspiring Dilemmas

In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Chicago Vol. 20), architect and entrepreneur Marc Teer is looking for trouble. Well, more so problems: he believes in finding design issues in the architecture field, solving them, and getting the physical or metaphorical structural solution built. He speaks of two enterprises he's established to solve architectural problems: his architectural software resource site Black Spectacles, and The Un-Competition Project.

Symphonies of the City

From the cacophonous cries of the city springs forth a mellifluous mini-musicale. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Symphonies of the City" from PKN Toronto Vol. 25, designer Marc De Pape is "exploring the relationship between sensing technology and the routines of everyday life." He's created a device that he compares to a windchime: one that not only creates sounds with the wind, but senses audio, motion, direction, temperature, light, and more. Based on the sensory input of the city, the device generates a melodious micro-orchestra of sounds that are not at all displeasing to the ear. Give it a listen on Marc's project page.

Strange Fruit; Split Seed

"Have you ever seen a photo that left you utterly speechless, gutted your ability to even comprehend what you are looking at?"In Strange Fruit; Split Seed from Beacon, Vol. 1. artist Jean-Marc Superville Sovak presents a series of drawings based on lynching photographs and his illustrative reactions. He explores images that shake you to your core not for what can be seen in them, but rather what can't be seen in them, and how what matters most are the stories in them that often have never been told.  Watch this moving presentation and confront the limits of interpretation.
