Susana Soares

Not only did the second edition of PechaKucha Night in Trieste -- held late last year -- attract over 600 attendees, it also featured an intriguing mix of presenters. The event's organizer, EXTRASMALL's Vanna Coslovich, tells us about Susana Soares and her "BEE'S PROJECT." We had more than 600 people at PKN Vol. 2 in Trieste. The location was really fascinating: the old wholesale fruit and vegetable market on the city waterfront. Every day, early in the morning, the place serves for selling wholesale. It was the very first time the market opened its doors for a creative event. Presenters came from North Italy, as well as Slovenia, Austria, and Great Britain. The most original presentation was "BEE’S PROJECT" by Susana Soares, a London-based Portuguese designer. She employs design as a tool to explore future technological implications for public engagement and awareness. Have you ever heard that bees have a phenomenal odor perception? Susana Soares explained to the public of PKN Trieste how the bees can be trained within minutes using Pavlov’s reflex to target a specific odour, and their range of detection includes pheromones, toxins, and disease diagnosis. "BEE’S PROJECT" explores how we might co-habit with natural biological systems and use their potential to increase our perceptive abilities. We have always co-existed with these systems, but their potential was unknown. Susana’s work was also exhibited in “Design and the Elastic Mind” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, curated by Paola Antonelli, before becoming part of the permanent collection of the museum. Below, some more images from Susana's presentation.

Kolektif Revey Twa

Presenting at PechaKucha Night in Mauritius Vol. 2, AIDS/HIV activists Kolektif Revey Twa brought their message to the audience. Organizer Stephen Ng talks more about the association, and what it means to the country. Kolektif Revey Twa -- literally "The Wake Up Collective" in Mauritian creole -- is an association of artists who are fighting against AIDS/HIV in Mauritius. It is estimated that there are 15,000 HIV positive people in the country -- for a population of 1.2 million, this number is actually quite alarming. One of the reasons for this number is the lack of sensitization and education about the disease and how it is spread, but also a lack of initiative from the authorities to tackle the problem effectively. The "Zarbiens," a group of creative people led by Stephan Jauffret-Rezannah, Nicolas Bastien-Sylva, and Emilien Jubeau (who presented at Vol. 1) have created this collective with the objective getting things moving, along with other associations. Their presentation at Vol. 2 was indeed quite moving. They came up in front of the audience with their masks to send a specific message that the AIDS infected people are unortunately seen differently and that it could be anyone of us. They explained their motivation and their goals, by using their talents to the profit of a very important problem...and that's without asking for anything in return. In fact, they have recently engaged themselves in a huge project to sensitize Mauritians of the AIDS/HIV problem. It will mainly involve the use of billboards in strategic areas of the country that clearly will send their message and hopefully make all of us get a better understanding of the disease and the people involved. They have been doing a tremendous job already by using their time and creativity, and the thing they are waiting on now is to get the necessary funding to get their latest project up and running. Local authorities and other private organisations have already promised to do so but they are still waiting for the actions. Unfortunately this is how it is in the country. Maybe that is a call for the PK Foundation to possibly help them out...a help for the whole of Mauritius...

The Future of Cancer Care

“With all these innovations, we’re left with a larger rate of cancer survivors.” Due to considerable progress in cancer treatment and survival rates, the population of cancer survivors can be anticipated to keep expanding in the foreseeable future.
