Retrofront – Dietro la Politica, una Pagina da Scrivere

BY DEWREC (/DJU:REK/)
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

Retrofront is an up-cycling paper project that turns the huge electoral and advertising posters overproduction into block-notes. Based in Turin, retrofront was created by a interdisciplinary team, coming from Dewrec. Handmade at first, collecting papers from local partys' headquarters, today retrofront drives a net of salvage in Piedmont and mechanizes the production in order to spread the salvage of paper and sale as much as possible. Capitalism wastes sources and destroys the environment, but we are convinced that we can fill its wholes with our intelligence and creativity, saving time and energy, giving back space and jobs. In the next few months, retrofront will diversify, realizing block-notes of different dimensions and different looks. The whole supply and production chain follows social and environmental sustainability criteria, indeed.

3D shadows of 4D art

BY HENRY SEGERMAN
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Mathematics and Art might seem to be about as different as two disciplines can be. But they share an affinity for fictional worlds: both mathematicians and artists are permitted to ask "What if" questions, that aren't required to have anything to do with the real world. I'll try to explain a sculpture based on one of these questions: "What if space had more than three dimensions?"

Visual Tectonics

BY MICHAEL ELKAN
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Photography and architecture are very closely related. It is through photographic images that architecture is widely seen, known and understood. Architects think in space-time dimensions but usually employ 2D media to develop their ideas. Architecture is truly experienced only in real space, time and scale. The photographer’s task is to reverse engineer that reality through acute observation and to construct a relatively small 2D image that begins to evoke the experience of being there.

PKN Providence Vol. 5

Tonight (August 19) marks the sixth edition of PechaKucha Night in Providence -- again at the Bravo venue -- but let's first take a look at last month's event (Vol. 5), thanks to this great report from organizer Stephanie Gerson. I’ve started making a tradition of announcing which other cities in the world are hosting PK Nights on the same night as us in Providence. Last month, I told the crowd that if ever we were to host a PK Night on the same night as a city in our time zone, we should orchestrate some kinda tele-PechaKucha situation using videochat. And as fate should have it, this month, we did PechaKucha not only on the same night as another city in our time zone, but on the same night as the PKing city that is geographically closest to us: July 22nd, 2009 witnessed PechaKucha Nights in both Providence and Boston. So I got in touch with Boston’s coordinator Brett Stilwell beforehand, to see if we couldn’t scheme some way to have our PK Nights intersect. Boston’s venue lacks internet access, so we settled for speaker phone, and although we couldn’t hear each other very well, the crowd in Providence definitely enjoyed yelling “hi Boston!” at my cell phone. We’ll definitely take a second shot, either with Boston or elsewhere. Our evening also started with some trials and tribulations of pronouncing “PechaKucha.” I shared with the crowd some of the best mispronunciations I’ve heard, from Hoochie Coochie to Machu Picchu, and announced that during intermission, the mic would be available for folks to perform their favorite mispronunciations. (And folks did end up getting on the mic during intermission! I Love this crowd.) And now for the presentations… July is a mellower month, as people tend to be traveling, and we had a slightly smaller crowd and shorter bill than usual – only six presentations. But IMHO this cultivated a more intimate atmosphere, and made the presentations more memorable (or perhaps, remember-able). Lemme quickly paint three of the presentations. Ariel Schecter is a senior at Brown, and therefore the first undergrad presenter at PechaKucha in Providence! He also happened to be – pleasantly surprisingly, given that we haven’t had enough women presenters thus far – the only man to present that night. His presentation was grandiosely titled “treatise on higher dimensions, parallel universes, and dark matter,” but he most certainly lived up to it. He took the crowd on an existential ride from masslessness to the 5th dimension, where Tyra Banks and the rest of us unknowingly walk along mobius strips, and explored the implications of each moment’s infinite possibilities. We were awed. And since that night, people have approached me asking about ‘that amazing Brown student, what does he study?...’ Tara Sage Steeves is a life coach and author who told the story of her Burning Man-induced transformation into a professional enabler of dream realization. Her presentation was beautifully titled “Dreaming out Loud,” and that’s precisely what she helps people do, by visualizing, vocalizing, and even dressing up ‘as you aspire to be.’ And since my own presentation essentially consisted of 20 dreams I was sharing out loud, Tara and I switched roles at the end of her presentation – she became the emcee and introduced me, Stephanie Gerson, the presenter. With my 20 slides, I shared “20 ventures I’d Love to pursue, but never will…unless you fund me, collaborate with me, or teach me some magic tricks.” An orchestra suit that translates movement into sound, a greenhouse restaurant where diners pick their ingredients, a pre-scripted video-chat with Obama, hosting Burning Man at a refugee camp, and deploying aliens to cities rife with inter-ethnic conflict were 5 of the 20. I got lots of smiles and ‘wows’ and even a few solicitations for collaboration, which was precisely the intention. What a wonderful July; August here we come!

Nooka

In design, "we create the physical manifestations of ideas." These are the words of designer/innovator Matthew Waldman. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) we hear not only of Matthew's theories on techno-progressivism (the idea that all tools, technology, and social/ethical dimensions should progress with the passing of time, i.e. not just computers) but we see a slew of unique and futuristic products he and his company (named Nooka) have developed to exemplify this thought method.
