Spatial and Social Politics

BY RIC WARREN
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Ric Warren shares on the geometric abstraction and the images that influence his aesthetic and current studio work. In a shift from architectural references, his studio work is currently experimenting with the motifs of casual sportswear as social and territorial signifier.

With a central focus on spatial and social politics, Ric Warren’s artworks are predominantly sculptural and sculptural installation. His work considers how our manmade surroundings have symbolic meaning beyond their basic functions and is influenced by the materials, forms and experiences of his urban surroundings, distilled through minimalist artistic sensibilities.

PechaKucha School in Haiti

On the 20th of February 2010, the 7th anniversary of PechaKucha Night, 117 cities came together on a single day and held events across the globe to support Architecture for Humanity's plans for rebuilding in Haiti. Other PechaKucha events for Haiti during February took this total to 174, and with cities still holding PKN events for Haiti in March this total topped 200. Today -- 20 days later -- it gives us great pride in announcing that the PechaKucha global network of cities, organizers, presenters and fans has raised over $60,000 which allows Architecture For Humanity to build the first PechaKucha School in Haiti. This just in from Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair: Our team arrived in Haiti last week, and we will know more about specific costs in the next few weeks. Our preliminary estimates for school costs are:Basic Costs Main Teaching Blocks (3) $30,000Toilet Block (1) $5,000Cafeteria $15,000Teachers Room $5,000 Landscaping/Reforestation $5,000 Total: $60,000 We will know more about volunteer needs also in the next few weeks but probably won't have volunteers there until the summer or later, so we will keep you posted on this. Really looking forward to seeing all the 100s of presentations online in the next few weeks. Good luck with the uploading! Thank you for organizing such an amazing event!

Developer Education Table Talks: Powered by PechaKucha

Software development is one of the fastest growing industries in the country, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting a 30% increase in jobs by 2020, more than double the average growth rate for all occupations. We’ve certainly seen an explosion in Chicago’s tech scene over the past several years, and along with this goes the issue of education. Who is going to train this next wave of developers, and what are the best teaching tools? How can we use mentorship to promote continued learning and improvement internally, and ensure current devs stay on top of the latest technologies and innovations? How will we reach groups typically under-represented in the dev world, like lower income individuals, certain ethnic minorities, and women? At Table XI we’ve been thinking a lot about the role of education and mentorship in this community. On Thursday, June 13, for our June Table Talks: Developer Education, we’ll be hearing PechaKucha-style presentations from some of Chicago’s best: Ray Hightower, organizer of ChicagoRuby and WindyCityRails - @rayhightower Paul Pagel, CEO and Co-founder of 8th Light - @paulwpagel Vince Cabansag, Director of Operations at The Starter League - @vcabansag Michael D. Hall, Founder of UGtastic - @just3ws Mike Busch, Instructor at Dev Bootcamp - @mikelikesbikes Isaac Sanders, Table XI development intern and mentor at Dev Bootcamp - @isaacsanders Stay tuned for these presentations on this channel, and in the meantime follow along at #TableTalks.
