Open Air PKN in Honolulu

PechaKucha Night in Honolulu Vol. 4 was held a couple of weeks ago, and from the photos I'm seeing in this Flickr photoset, I'm getting really jealous of open air PKN events -- see photos from last month's edition of PKN San Francisco for more evidence. I now dream of a PKN Tokyo with a backdrop of pink sakura.

PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 14

PechaKucha Night in Buenos Aires Vol. 14 was held last week at the Ciudad Cultural Konex, enjoying an amazing turnout of close to 600 attendees. Organizer May Groppo fills us in on the night that was. The night started with DJ Villa Diamante welcoming puzzled guests who received cardboard 3D glasses on the door. Volume 14 in Buenos Aires was up to something, and packed (around 600 people). Mandetta (our male host in a dress as usual) opened the event with the cellphone-drawing-in-the-air warm up (since we saw PKN Denver's pics we couldn't resist). The first presentation was from Schwerpunkt and was a 3D experience. It then was then followed by Noavestruz, and then right away by Collage Lab with Nase from Amsterdam and his graffiti and his lovely girlfriend translating the whole speech (love is in the air). Zkysky is a design studio that has been on the market for 20 years now but decided not to show its work and instead shared their daily inspiration. Mariano Sigman is a scientist who studies the brain (neuroscience) and he bewildered us with his findings in such a simple and funny way that left everybody wanting for more. Picnic closed the first part with their home decor ideas and excellent taste. After the break with lots of chatting and drinks, it was time for the NGO of the night, Amartya, with its volunteering projects. Candelaria from Maldón Entertainment narrated her passion for board games and how she was planning for their come back -- amazing story. Pepe Monje and Bobby Flores (celebrities in music and tv) decided to improvise onstage and read an expert from a play they did together while sharing family pictures. ZZK Records made us proud, describing its foray into the international music scene with their mash-ups and cumbia electronica mixtapes. The last presenter was Franco Fasoli (jazz) who showed his street art together with his new more traditional art. See you in October with more creative, weird, funky, funny, and smart people onstage!

Turning Air Into Water, Surfboard/Scene Design, and the Carrot Pavillion

Presentations Richard Groden is one of the founders of Island Sky, and in his presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 15), he talks about its project to extract water from air and turn it into pure drinking water for areas where water is scarce or contaminated. Their goal is not just to produce drinkable water, but also to educate people on the important of sustainability in developing countries. Martín Várbaro is a plastic material artist who started his career by designing surfboards in Argentina, and later in more Latin American countries, including Peru and Brazil. As this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mar Del Plata Vol. 2) reveals, he also works as a scene decorator for theaters, museums, and public centers, and is now producing work in South America and Europe. Posters We have no new posters to share on the Tumblr blog today, but that gives us a chance to highlight the beach-friendly poster from last week's PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7. Photos and report We've got galleries for two firsts to share (in Castellon and Augsburg), but let us also point you to this blog post from Core77 about a recent PechaKucha event in London, part of the International Conference on Designing Food and Designing for Food. It was produced by PKN Brussels organizer Alok Nandi, and the photo above reveals the intriguing "Carrot Pavillion." PKN Castellon de la Plana Vol. 1 [Facebook]PKN Augsburg Vol. 1 [Facebook]Calendar We're kicking off the week with the re-start of the PKN series in Bangkok, with the city's Vol. 5 happening tonight (July 9). Tomorrow, there's one event on tap in the form of PKN Huancayo Vol. 10.
