Vilnius of Tomorrow

@ VOL 130 ON NOV 25, 2015

"We invited electronica producers and singers from Japan to come to Lithuania to have a concert at a traditional Catholic church. Not to be mistaken, this was an LSD dream coming true."
In Vilnius of Tomorrow from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 130, cultural planner, graphic designer, and altogether eccentric Lithuanian, Sergej Grigorjev spotlights some of the hidden creativity that can be found in one of eastern Europe's most beautiful and forward-thinking capitals, Vilnius. He shares how the community is taking old traditions and re-imagining them in new ways to cultivate fresh perspectives and world-wide attention. And as part of Vilnius' creative resurgence, he has started a series of events - MADE IN JAPAN - with a focus on creative collaboration between Japan and the Baltic States.

In “Concepts in Time and Motion” from PKN Brooklyn Vol. 2, he goes into depth on the perception humans and other beings have of time, space, speed, and motion, and displays his work: two cars crashed together incredibly slowly over the course of two months.
