The World Marathon Majors

BY STEPHEN FERGUSON
@ VOL 12 ON APR 25, 2019

"My running career started in 2011 when I accidentally caught diabetes and so my first job was to buy a pair of running shoes and sign-up for a couch to 5k."

Stephen Ferguson talks to us about the challenge of running his first marathon and that this inspired him to continue running and be awarded the World Marathon Majors, a medal won by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest.

Breaking Botanical

BY JORDAN SAMEK
@ VOL 13 ON NOV 05, 2016

Jordan Samek compares his own cancer experience (in humorous terms) to that of the character Walter White from his all-time favourite show, Breaking Bad. At 35 years old, he was a high school teacher with a young family, when he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. During his recovery from chemotherapy treatment, he found gardening, or maybe it finally found him in the spacious backyard of his newly acquired home in New Westminster. And he never returned to teaching. He became a stay at home parent for a while, re-formed and cultivated his gardens and yard, and started a business in landscaping and fence building. Gardening and landscaping reshaped the narrative of his life, while also healing him, and opened him up to the brilliance of botany.

10 Devils, 10 Forms of Castration

BY COLIN SARGENT
@ VOL 20 ON AUG 25, 2016

Year-round summer person Colin Sargent, the founding editor & publisher of Portland Monthly Magazine, grew up on Gooch's Beach. A novelist, magazine publisher, and poet, Sargent's new novel The Boston Castrato is just out from Barbican Press on London, with the US release on October 1. This is not your grandmother's Christmas book: "For anyone who might have imagined 1920s Boston to be a bit stuffy and not quite the toddling town of Chicago or New York, The Boston Castrato will likely change that opinion. Bustling with snobs, intellectuals, criminals, immigrants, artists, and a definite LGBT presence, Sargent's Boston is vivid, violent, quirky, cultured, and peopled with memorable characters."–Foreword Review

擅長用植物作品留住時光和質地,李霽卻出人意表地,是透過「極地馬拉松」來體驗世界、獲得創作靈感。他分享道,在身體的痛苦中,單一感官放大,感應自然的能力也隨之變得敏銳。於是我們很難忘懷,內蒙古沙漠、黑暗森林中跑者的頭燈、還有李霽腳上的水泡。

Combining Botanical Arts With Architecture

BY 李霽 LEE CHI
@ VOL 40 ON AUG 31, 2019

建築學系畢業,因空間設計需求而開啟關於植物的思考創作,重拾起成長環境的薰陶下一直以來對於自然的感受和神秘聯繫。2013年開始專注獨特植物裝置藝術的創作,並結合建築背景,透過設計案、教學、創作、產品發展,組接從建築架構、生活層面、到植物藝術的融合軌跡,從理念上不斷嘗試與傳遞,透過本質思考、現象分析、和技術研究,轉化於每一次的事件與作品的藝術化成果。

在每個喜歡的領域裡,李霽總是極力在奔跑,不偷閒也不點到為止,凡事衝破了最高極限。其當代藝術創作的靈感,也來自於此,來自每天都想過的不一樣,都在衝破極限的路上遇見新視野,帶到他的裝置作品中,試圖給這個封閉靜止的世界更多的刺激。媒體盛讚他為台灣首位將植物作為一項藝術的材料,深入它的內涵,它的微存在,以及它在世界上存在的位置之創作者。

李霽認為,人應該依附在環境裡生存,而不是總把自己放在空間的中心,反讓植物成為外一種制式的裝飾。其品牌質物霽畫BOTANIPLAN VON LEE CHI 不只進行一種美學表現,而還具有概念性,想去結合更深度的議題,跟觀看者、參參與者產生共鳴。李霽與團隊希望,「作品好玩,有革命性,輕鬆但也嚴肅,有這個品牌執著的事情,用這個品牌的創作去說話。」

李霽也是位極限馬馬拉松跑者,曾參參與內蒙、柬埔寨、新疆等百餘公里里里賽事,並取得優秀成績。目前,下一階段的極地馬馬拉松賽事安排正在規劃中。

李霽甫獲國際知名流雜誌Prestige 遴選為2017 年度四十位未屆四十歲之青年成功人士(40 Under 40)。

Lee Chi, born in Taipei in 1983, graduated from the Department of Architecture at Chung Yuan Christian University in 2007. While working on an interior design project inspired by floral elements, Lee Chi thought of his childhood years. He was reminded of a time when he was immersed in and influenced by nature. He realized his past experiences with the natural world could be a source of inspiration for new ideas. With that in mind, Lee Chi began experimenting with combining botanical arts with architecture.

In 2013, Lee Chi began to focus on developing unique botanical art installations by bringing together his background in architecture and his personal experiences in design cases, teaching, art creation, and product development. He continues to explore using botanicals under the framework of architecture, and to experiment with new ideas. His inspiration for his contemporary art comes not only from nature, but also everyday life. By reflecting upon the nature of art, analyzing society, and researching creative techniques, he is able to transform essential elements into a series of artwork which shows the insight and depth of his creative mind.

Lee Chi pushes the boundaries of his work and aspires to go beyond his own standard for excellence. He has been praised for being the first to use plants as a medium for art in Taiwan and received recognition from the internationally-known magazine, Prestige, in their 40 Under 40 of 2017 edition.

Rather than only using plants as a superficial decoration, he believes people should form a deep relationship with them. As the creative director of BOTANIPLAN VON LEE CHI, Lee Chi’s goal for the brand is to not only emphasize aesthetics, but also to create actualized works of art connecting observers with nature and societal introspection. Lee Chi and the BVLC team strive to use their creations to express this philosophy.

Lee Chi is also a ultramarathon runner, and has competed in Cambodia, Inner Mongolia, and Xinjiang and achieved outstanding results. The Deserts Race Series will be his next challenge.

PKN Boston Vol. 9

PechaKucha Night in Boston Vol. 9 was held earlier this month, and it's certainly nice to see some follow-up blog reports, including this one by CommonContent's Jason, who "really enjoyed hearing the hidden stories behind projects I’ve noticed throughout Boston and online." The photo featured in this post is also by Jason, and you'll find a few more in his post -- it's interesting to see how presenters are actually surrounded by the crowd during their presentation. PKN Boston Vol. 10 is set for May 27 at the same venue.
