PKN Bali for Haiti

The "PechaKucha Global Night for Haiti" will be a true community event, bringing together as many of the PKN cities as possible on one day (February 20).

PKN Vol. 5

We're coming up on our Volume 5, at Gloucester Arts on Main, Saturday, June 15th. Social at 6pm, presentations at 7pm. I've only been given some clues, but this evening looks like it's promising to be very upbeat and inspiring. We're going to hear about Stephanie's personal psychologies and theories on happiness, Lulu has been collecting words for a crowdsourced poem, and Reese will be talking about "I pledge allegiance..." Something interesting must be in those 3 dots. We're also going to have our first couples presentation. Grace and Matt will be sharing the meaning and inspiration of art in their relationship. Things may get mushy. So mark the date off in your calendar, come check out a great gallery, have a drink and a snack, get inspired, and join in a little chit-chat, PechaKucha style.

Flotsam Weaving

Plastics from continents thousands of miles away wash in on countless beaches every day. Artist Jo Atherton weaves artwork from flotsam found washed up on beaches. In "Flotsam Weaving" from PKN Bedford Vol. 2, we see that their cheerful familiar forms belie a shocking truth: we get older but plastic remains. Though Jo's work isn't intended to foster a culture of blame, she does communicate through her work that we are all tied together in this global waste problem.

The Impossibility of Nature

What comes of a synthesis of plastic into our natural world at the microscopic level? The repetitive use of natural detritus brings Shona Wilson closer to understanding the world we share. The materials that make up her work are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as 'keys', unlocking doors to memory, science, history and imagination. In "The Impossibility of Nature" at PKN Forster Vol. 2 her current work increasingly responds to and reflects upon the cross-pollinations between nature, humans and culture, referencing in particular, plastics' invasion into the 'natural' world.
