Found Objects and a Desk

@ VOL 40 ON JUN 13, 2013

Frida Ersson is a recently-graduated student from Malmsten's college - one of the finest schools of cabinetmaking in the world. Her projects have entailed a fair degree of traveling, which serves as a way of lifitng inspiration for her work. Each trip taken would result in a plethora of found objects that would later see themselves incorporated into her final project; a glorious investment of time to create a stunning piece of craftsmanship - her desk.

PKN Posters: Champaign-Urbana Vol. 11

The PechaKucha Night Champaign-Urbana Vol. 11 poster was designed by Mark Melvin, a student in the graphic design program at Parkland College in Champaign IL USA. The poster design project was presented to a graphic design class to solve as a service learning project. Each of the 16 students in the class presented a solution and Mark's design was chosen for its clever concept, high level of craftsmanship and overall imaginative execution. Champaign-Urbana's Vol. 11 happens tonight (February 8), and you'll find more details on the official event page. To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.

Materials, Tradition, and Craft

In today's Presentation of the Day, "Materials, Tradition, and Craft" from a special PechaKucha Tokyo event entitled 「ICSでNight!」 at the ICS College of Arts, designer Yuki Tanaka speaks on her reverance for Japanese traditional craftsmanship. Her idea for a bottle holder is rejected due to it being too costly both time-wise and money-wise. She redesigns her holder to a less costly design that is remarkably elegant. She also shows us some of the other unique projects she has undertaken, including a spherical fruit basket and a cubic clock composed of three different variations of bronze.

The Craftsmanship of the Kufiya

"Too many times, we make judgements on people and situations without knowing anything about them... I decided to do a photography project, which is focusing on people, not the conflict, not the violence." In The Craftsmanship of the Kufiya from PechaKucha Night Maastricht  Vol. 29, photographer Brian Megens tells the story about his photography project ‘The Other Side of Palestine’. In this project he focuses on life and the people of the West Bank. He made several stories throughout the country. During his stay in Palestine, Brian got intrigued with the kufiya, known in the West as the ‘Arafat scarf’. In his presentation, ‘The Craftsmanship of the Kufiya’ Brian will tell us more about this traditional Arabic product that won his admiration.
