Втзприятието на човешкият мозък
BY KRISTINA RACHEVA
@ VOL 3
ON NOV 26, 2016
Кристина Рачева ще ни представи тема, свързана с визуализацията на човешкия мозък. Ще ни разкаже два експеримента свързани с тях и едно свое наблюдение за това как чувствата влияят отрицателно на трезвата мисъл.
Мозъкът е орган, който контролира функциите на организма.
Първият експеримент се нарича Гумена ръка и включва сетивата зрение и осезание и ни представя как човешкият мозък може да бъде заблуден чрез визуализацията.
Вторият експеримент доказва малко известният факт, че децата чуват по-добре от възрастните. Диапазонът на чуване на детското ухо е действително по-широк.
Последната част от темата, свързана с емоциите представя с други думи конфликтът между мозъкът и сърцето. Кристина Рачева ще разкаже своето виждане за това.

Dr. Kate Flynn knows more than a little about what it’s like to be stuck in the muck and mire of WTF, while dreaming of the Land of Cupcakes and Unicorns.

Dr.Kate doesn’t live there permanently yet, but she’s caught more than a glimpse of this magical place and offers a roadmap so that you too may find your way there.

Dr. Powerpoint, also known as Kaj Noskaj, is the first Pecha Kucha Aarhus-presenter to have his own entrance monologue. And also the first to have his own entrance music. And also the first Nobel Peace Prize-recipient, although that might not be entirely true...
Go on a trip with Dr Powerpoint into the problems of Pecha Kucha Aarhus. Why is it so difficult to make a presentation?!
With science that's almost real and graphs that nearly make sense, he comes close to answering some of the questions.
This is an absolute one-to-watch.
(Disclaimer: The presentation contained several animations and transitions that cannot be seen on this website. Sorry!)
(Disclaimer: Dr. Powerpoint's real name is Kaj Noskaj. And Kaj Noskaj's real name is Jack Jackson)
SITEWIDE BLOG POSTS
Tokyo-based artist Scott Silvey was at last month's edition of PechaKucha Night in Tokyo (Vol. 61), with a presentation focusing on the decaying urban landscapes seen in his latest series of works, "Civic Remedies." From the artist's site: Within a decaying urban landscape, vending machines, street lamps, electric poles and meters stand as sentinels among the dwellings where people once lived. Because of unabated consumption the skeletal remains of human production are all that linger in the half-light. The only remaining inhabitants are the fertile mounds of soil in which medicinal herbs have germinated. These healing plants have returned to restore health to an ailing world. The series was first shown last year at the gallery in All-Nippon Airlines' Signet Lounge (Haneda Airport), and will next be exhibited at the Whitespace gallery in Atlanta, from May 22 until July 3.
Poster for PKN Philadelphia Vol. 4
One that unfortunately got lost in the shuffle as we were gearing up preparations for the "PechaKucha for Haiti" event, here's a look at the poster that was produced for PechaKucha Night in Philadelphia Vol. 4, held at the tail end of January -- and take note that Vol. 5 is just a short few weeks away, set to happen April 17 at Studio 34: Yoga | Healing | Arts. Also, a few comments from organizer Jonathan McEuen on the Vol. 4 festivities: PechaKucha Night Philadelphia Vol. 4 was a huge success. We heard from kids who started a company that developed into an east-coast enclave of wizards and warriors -- mostly children in urban areas with wild imaginations eager to be set free. We heard from professors studying the work of Kevin Bacon's father, from people building gardens on rooftops, constructing low-power, pirate radio networks, and making the best cupcakes I've ever personally had in my life. Attendance grew again to a new record despite the snow, and all had a wonderful time. It was a true gift to be able to organize and present these speakers to the city, as both presenter and audience shared a fantastic night.
At next week's Vol. 104, architecture student Dominik Saitl will talk about his "Anastomosis" project: Project [anastomosis] presents a different view on the functioning of contemporary city and solution of its problems. The city is understood as a closed structure with "frozen evolution." Its further developement can't be done by rebuilding the city but by its adaptation. To start this healing process it is necessary to activate small but important connections. 建築学生のDominik Saitlさんが取り組んでいらっしゃる建築プロジェクトについてPechaKucha Night 東京104（6月26日、水曜日）でお話ししてくださいます。

Forever in an Instant
"Anyone facing adversity can experience some form of healing or solace from something as seemingly insignificant as the gift of an instant photo." In Forever in an Instant from PechaKucha Night Singapore Vol. 13, photographer Frederick Chen shares his experience of working with Photohoku, a photo-giving volunteer initiative that was born in response to the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Through the act of giving photos, rather than taking photos, Frederick explains how photography has the power to restore hope for people in need, giving them something often overlooked in other relief efforts. In a final call-to-action, Frederick challenges us to take up the cause, putting forward the notion that the ways that photo-giving can make a difference in people's lives is only limited by our imaginations.
Bodies of Art
"Something really magical happened... at some point as she was painting me, I felt her story on her body, I felt her pain ... every time she put her ink on my body it was soothing my soul, it was healing... this mask of color was curing us both." In Bodies of Art from PechaKucha Night Tokyo, Vol. 131, filmmaker, artist, performer and sea serpent queen Vittoria Colonna takes us through her creative journey so far which brings her to Kyoto. Here in Japan Vittoria and fellow artist Miki Yokoyama collaborate using each other's bodies as canvases in a performance that blurs the lines between the Art and the Artists themselves.

She shares her knowledge locally through a number of weaving circles and facilitates transformational journeys to remote Indigenous Australian and African communities, for deep connection to land, culture, healing and traditional weaving.

Ancestral Chorus: Harmony of Voice and Crystal
Sound healer, Suzie Lee, grew up singing harmony with her mother. Fast forward through musical theater camps, jazz choir, and a cappella groups, Suzie developed her vocal gift with crystal singing bowls. She describes this as "the single most relaxing and soothing sensation I had ever experienced...The first thought I had was that my ancestors were singing along with me." Her presentation will focus on the theory of sound healing, the unique features of the crystal singing bowls, and a demonstration of her work in this field.
