BY DAVID VICKERY
@ VOL 20
ON JAN 31, 2014
David Vickery is a resident of Cushing, where he has been working for the past 23 years, finding inspiration in local scenes and creating oil paintings with an eye for the imperfect, quirky, and sometimes elegant adaptations we’ve made in order to live here. His process is to carry a camera wherever he goes and photograph any scene that moves him, then contemplate and carefully re-compose the photo in the studio and paint it.

The project, sponsored by street ware brand Elvine, offers free short-term accommodations in Gothenburg to visiting creatives, and yes, that does include PKN presenters.

Marking the Tokyo Cityscape, Being Kind to Your Elders, and Checking in on Guimaraes
Presentations Here's how Nick Bruscia describes his presentation, "Marking the City," from last week's PKN Tokyo Vol. 92:An impromptu and ad-libbed Tokyo fiction deriving meaning from a mundane observation -- street annotations and mysterious tags, both written and physically placed. It is imagined that these tags embed another layer of information into the city by casting invisible perimeters within which encoded experiences are left behind and felt by others through ubiquitous mobile / augmented-reality devices. Tokyo is remapped through visual and physical sensations that overlap, fade away, and are activated by the weather or proximity, and offer an ephemerality akin to Tokyo's ever changing urban fabric.Our second presentation of the day is quite a different one. "Be kind to your elders" is a phrase we hear time and time again, and in "Building Bridges" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Roseli Bassi talks about a project that has the goal of encouraging better interaction between young people and the elderly. Posters The new posters on our Tumblr blog today are for PKN Guimaraes Vol. 2, PKN Bucharest Vol. 9, PKN Moncton Vol. 5 (which happens tomorrow night), and PKN Toronto Vol. 16 (pictured above). Photos and videos Today we take some time to share plenty of Guimaraes content, for the city's recent Vol. 2. As we just mentioned, the poster for the event was added to our Tumblr blog, and you'll also find two photo galleries, one with photos taken by Joao Octavio Peixoto (two of them are pictured above), and one by Luis Coelho and Joao Abreu [Facebook]. We already shared with you the promo video for the event (and we loved it so much we played it last week's PKN here in Tokyo), as well as the teaser, but here's also an intro for the presenters. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYd-HDj8roA And here's a lovely outdoor billboard ad for the event: Links A couple of event reports from around the web. "Chit-chatting about Japan" (on the recent D&AD "Japan" themed one-off PechaKucha event in London) [Haikugirl's Japan]"PechaKucha Night Dubai: The 11th Edition - A Convention of Creative Minds" [Khaleejesque]Calendar First, a reminder that tonight (June 6) you can catch the following events: PKN Coquitlam Vol. 7, PKN Bielefeld Vol. 10, PKN Genoa Vol. 2, PKN Aarhus Vol. 13, and PKN Edmonton Vol. 13. Tomorrow, look to these cities for some PKN satisfaction: PKN Eindhoven Vol. 2, PKN Moncton Vol. 5, and PKN Utrecht Vol. 4.
Lucid dreaming, intuition, augmented reality and satelitelaunching all at Aalborg #12
90 people attending in an attentive atmosphere and opened by 3D graphic Benny Mathiesen. This time he shared his thoughts, experiences and knowledge of lucid dreaming - fascinating and fun - so everybodys attension was caught. Bo Nicolaisen from Platform 4 talked of a collaboration between thr art & tech people in Aalborg, one of the worlds best animation schools situated in Viborg and Filmværkstedet in Århus - the Bemudacollaboration give artists opportunities to benefit from workshops, knowledge and projects from all tree places. Sandro Masai is both dancer, choreographer and educated from Aalborg University in art & technology. He's making an art project based on augmented reality - at a summer art event in july called Bunkerlove at Denmarks large west coast beaches, where bunkers from 2. worldwar still lie in the sand. Before the break Ellen Raunsmed is researching in intuition at the university and shared her knowledge and experiences from seminars held together with artists, philosophers and dancers. The break kept people chit-chatting and networking - among a bunch of cool women in rollerskates from Aalborg Rollerderby - and bly me it's like rugby ON ROLLERSKATES for women!!! The first slot after the break was taken by artist and a men who pocesses imense knowledge art critic Gorm Spaabæk. He is the man behind a project where Nordjyske - the local paper - hires artists to create i piece FOR the paper inspired by local stories from the area. Lars Ditlev Johansen is educated actor an directs a piece called "A walk in the dark" about meeting life and death - and the theaterpiece will also be part of Bunkerlove inviting the audience onto the beach at night and into the bunkers. He read beautiful pieces of the drama - for me a very moving moment. And then came the complete fun - in the name of PechaKucha variaty in content - there came a whole team of Rollerderbygirls presenting their passion for the game! Brilliant pianist and composer - art & technology student Dominik Blasko finished the evening both talking about composing, making different art installations AND playing one of his pieces - a beautiful dot to a wonderful evening. See you in september :-)
Do we really need another photo-sharing app? Why can't technology serve a greater purpose? Michael Slaby speaks on his personal journey towards a purpose-driven career and what a purpose-driven technology sector might be capable of accomplishing. In "Elevate Purpose" from a special Table XI Table Talks event entitled Technology for Social Good, Michael believes that the greatest minds of our time are often occupied with developing the next social web media app, and that more resources ought to be directed towards the development of apps or tools that can benefit those without the basic human needs, or those affected by violence.
How to Create Slides
When you make a presentation, you don’t always have the opportunity to hire a designer — after this, you won’t need one. Ellen Finkelstein wants to help us create our own powerful, vibrant presentations. In “How to Create Slides” from PKN Fairfield Vol. 1, she speaks to those who feel that making slides for a presentation can be a real challenge, and breaks down her methods of creating simple, communicative presentations.
When Eve took the apple, she said to Adam, “I want to think for myself.” Ellen ter Gast tells us that ethical heroism is what we need most in this world. In “Bold Ethics” from PKN Maastricht Vol. 24, Ellen shows us that the right thing to do isn’t always the easy thing to do — especially when it means leaving behind our previously-held beliefs.
