Walk a Mile in my Shoes
BY CHRIS MAHER
@ VOL 5
ON MAY 13, 2016
This incredible talk is about a man's path to enlightment and empathy via the shoes on his feet, and those purchased along the way. A tale of fetish and frienships that ask us all to cosider how we treat others, a true reminder of what it is to be humane.

His presentation is about Sir William MacGregor, one of the most important donors of ethnographic material to the University (from Fiji, New Guinea, Nigeria, Newfoundland and Australia).

Twittering PKN Austin Vol. 4
Overheard tweets from last night's Pecha Kucha Night Austin (Vol. 4): @andyhunter: "Wow... Pecha is at capacity. Turning people away in droves." @ematamoros: "If you're not already at Austin Pecha Kucha, don't bother. Line's worse than Disneyland." @Robogeek: "If you're headed to Pecha Kucha Austin, don't bother - they're at capacity, and turning tons of very sad people away." @mattcurtis sums up the lesson learned from the evening: "gearing up for tonight's Pecha Kucha -- the name of the game is 'get there early.'"
PKN Austin Vol. 4
If the tweets were anything to go by, PechaKucha Night Vol. 4 in Austin was a get-there-early-or-miss-out kind of affair. PKN Austin organizer Carla Fraser gives us the lowdown on the event: We had 10 presenters, ranging from graphic design to music, skateboard activist, architecture, photography, film, and spray can graffiti. Photographer Sarah Wilson showed some work she had done working with the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. She photographed their prom -- a year end formal dance that is traditional in US high schools. The audience loved her work. It's very personal and moving. Miguel Rivera's presentation of his architectural work was breathtakingly beautiful. Musician John Pointer presented an idea of a new model for musicians to be financially successful without having to go through the typical recording label dance. In Austin, home of lots of musicians, people liked it. He is very smart and talented and had hand-drawn his slides because his laptop flew off the top of his car. A very brave graphic designer from Pentagram (DJ Stout) stood up and showed his failures. Some were hilarious. He is very good and has the confidence to show his bad work because he has done so much good work. We had over 250 people inside and had to turn away at least another 100 or more. There are fire marshall codes that cannot be broken. We are looking for a larger venue for the next one. The short film clip was great. For many people, this was their first PKN event to attend so that helped put things in perspective. Others had been to all the prior events. Feedback this morning has been very enthusiastic. We have had to turn people away at 3 of the 4 events. Our #3 was in a very large space but it brought its own challenges with it. We had someone drive from Houston who wants to start one up in that city. We have chatted on email so he came to see one in person. He was jazzed about it, asked lots of questions. We have had visitors from Phoenix and other locations who came to see one in hopes of starting one in their own cities. The really wonderful thing is how enthusiastic and excited the presenters are after the event. They get energized. The crowd feels it and people walk away glad to be part of the creative community. And, breaking down all the traditional silos -- mixing so many disciplines together is key to the fun here in Austin. It's work, yes, and at 11:30 last night I was tired. But the feedback this morning is so great! Photos are courtesy of Ben Rondeau.
Landscapes in Australia (and Beyond), the Mississippi Goddam Play, and Teaching Kids Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship
Presentations Christian Fletcher is a landscape photographer who photographs not only the beautiful South West of Australia but is now expanding his portfolio to include the rest of Australia and locations around the world. His presentation (from PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5) covers a new photography collaboration, exhibition, and workshop that is coming up in the near future. How did Jonathan Norton get out of writing a 20-page assignment? He promised a 100-page play instead, based on the Nina Simone song "Mississippi Goddam." Here's the story (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10). As we find out in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 9), Kids-Coins is an educational project -- held inside and outside school -- that teaches children and teenagers the basics of financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Sergey Bidenko and Irina Zolotarevych -- co-authors of the "Kids-Coins" projects -- are experienced business coaches who have implemented 37 training and educational programs for adults and youth. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is for Miami's upcoming very special Vol. 20 -- we always love seeing a city reach that number -- which doubles as a pre-Art Basel evening. It happens on December 1, and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the event page. Photos Mikkeli recently held its very first PKN (and two weeks later, its Vol. 2), and here's the photo gallery [Flickr] to prove it -- you'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the event page. Calendar There are no PKNs tonight, but tomorrow night (November 20) you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Calgary Vol. 14 and PKN Coquitlam Vol. 8.
A Trip from Byron Bay to Lake Eyre
For this "Presentation of the Day," Tim Exley takes us on an amazing trip from the coast of Byron Bay to Lake Eyre, all across the surprisingly colorful outback of Australia by motor glider.
Presenting at next week's Vol. 104 is Austin Klemmer. Here's how he describes his presentation:"Using my experiences in Vietnam and my impressions upon moving back to Tokyo, I will address some of the fundamental issues facing designers and architects in developing countries, and the way these problems can shed light on design/architecture in Tokyo. I hope to offer some theoretical solutions, but, more importantly, to get the audience thinking about design from a different perspective."ベトナムで1年半過ごされたAustin Klemmerさんが発展途上国における建築、デザインについてPechaKucha Night 東京104（6月26日、水曜日）にてプレゼンテーションしてくださいます。
Capturing Custom Car Show Character
"...As you can see, the people-watching at these shows is amazing." Photographer George Brainard was asked by The Kontinentals to shoot the the Lone Star Roundup a couple years back, and while he originally focused on the event itself, he was drawn to all the unique people who attended this annual hot rod and custom car show. In "Capturing Custom Car Show Character" from PKN Austin Vol. 18, George recalls here his photographs, experiences, and the subjects that inspired so many fascinating stories.
Cycles of Revival
Alan Stulberg has always been a bit of a gearhead. But unlike many other motorcycle fanatics, he's interested in presenting his works of motorcycle craftsmanship in ways that one might not expect. In "Cycles of Revival" from PKN Austin Vol. 18, Alan speaks of his life, his art, his shop (Revival Cycles) and his budding interest in industrial architecture.
