The Power of PechaKucha

We hand over the controls to PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson -- his Vol. 24 event was held just last night -- who talks about the perks of being a PKN organizer. As a PechaKucha organizer you sometimes ask yourself if it's worth all those hours you put in. But then you go on vacation to Central America and find out you have PechaKucha colleagues in every other city. Take this example with Panama City. I went there by myself and only knew about two places in town, the place I was staying at and the offices of TBWA / Panama, the local producers of PechaKucha Night. From left: Jesper Larsson (PechaKucha Night in Göteborg) and Ricardo Fernández (PechaKucha Night in Panama City). Words of wisdom at the TBWA / Panama office. I had a great time hanging out with local PechaKucha organizers Ricardo Fernández and Juan Cruz Soares Gache. As an organizer I highly recommend you use the power of a 385 city strong network -- what company can compete with that? -- and contact the local organizers of PechaKucha when you are out traveling. It's a great way to get local tips and recommendations, and a chance to discuss and share PKN experiences. While still traveling I also found out that I had been listed as an up-and-comer when Gothenburg's biggest daily newspaper listed "The 100 most influential people in town," simple because of the success of PechaKucha here. The power is there. Let's just not forget that it's there because we all put in all those hours.

The Power of Observation

Are you aware, that in a single day (today) we take in 5x the amount of information we did (25 years ago) in 5 days? That's right, in the same amount of time, we take in 5 times the amount of information we did 25 years ago.  Bob Hambly examines (at PKN Toronto Vol. 26) the topic of observation – how we've become visually complacent, how we are manipulated to see certain things, how important it is to have good observational skills, and how we can go about improving them. This is something we can all get better at. In "The Power of Observation", you'll see that the better we get at observing, the better we will get at generating creative ideas. Don't be a lazy observer, see (don't look -- see) things now!

He began using his work to challenge expectations both inside and outside the academic art world while a student at the Münster Academy of Art from 1998 to 2003. Boelter’s projects are distinguished equally by their powerful poetic imagery and by the precision of their execution, often carried out under the difficult conditions of the public sphere and galvanising the public into action.
