Shaping Space and Realities

BY LAUREN SLOWIK
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

Fear, Technology, and Why You Should Be Friends With Me

BY AYLA MANNING
@ VOL 35 ON SEP 06, 2018

Ayla Manning is a student and heritage interpreter at the Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, where she dresses and acts as though she's living at Red River in the 1850's. It's a fascinating job that requires you to not only manage answering questions from extremely modern visitors, but also absorb an exorbitant amount of knowledge on how to live without technology. Ayla explains in this PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk that this knowledge is extremely useful and practical in many situations, including the apocalypse.

Ayla's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre. 

For more information on PKN Winnipeg, follow us on Twitter (@pkn_winnipeg), Instagram (@pkn_winnipeg), or Facebook (www.facebook.com/pechakuchanightwinnipeg). PKN Winnipeg is presented by the Manitoba Chapter of the Graphic Designers of Canada.

BY TONY DEIS
@ VOL 28 ON DEC 11, 2018

What does it take to survive the apocalypse of modern childhood? Some traits are obvious: grit with the ability to functionally use a knife for all manner of forest crafts. Some are subtle: silence, strategy, and profound empathy. Together, let's explore wilderness survival, tracking, alloparenting, and other skills of the wild on a quest to help save the free-range kid from extinction.

Happy 2013 from PechaKucha

A new year has begun, we have escaped yet another foretold apocalypse, and we're back to our not-so-ordinary lives here at PechaKucha. Some of us watched fireworks in Bangkok, others escaped to the sunny beaches of California, and still others climbed the frigid mountain ranges of Nagano Prefecture, Japan.  Though we've been away from it all (or just asleep under the kotatsu), the world continues to turn. We return to flooded inboxes -- a veritable deluge of content from all over the world. And thus we journey forward, into another fresh year full of excitement and opportunities to be seized. From all of us at PechaKucha HQ: we wish you a fantastic 2013!

Building Motorcycles for One

Want to ride a futuristic apocalypse bike? This is a good place to start: Matthew Roberts, Creative Director at Speedtractor Industries, is part of a global movement to reestablish motorcycles as casual, cool forms of transportation, and he's doing it by creating beautiful, unique custom-made motorcycles for one client at a time. In "Building Motorcycles for One" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 113, Matthew goes into depth on the new wave of motorcycle riders -- not the circus performers you see on TV -- a group of individuals looking to build something of their own, and take on new adventures on the road.
