The Secret Gardens of Williamsburg, Whale Hunting in Chukotka, and Marseille's 5th Anniversary

Presentations Williamsburg is known for its historic districts, and especially the popular Duke of Gloucester Street. In this presentation by PKN Williamsburg organizer Dale Weiss (from the city's Vol. 1), we are shown a whole other part of the city that is usually hidden behind gates. Maxim Zirin is a TV producer. Together with a reporter and a cameraman he went to Chukotka to shoot a piece about how local people hunt whales for a weekly programme on Russian's NTV. Chukotka is the northeastern extremity of Asia, in the northern part of the Russian Far East. Please note that some of the images included in the presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 10) are graphic. Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with the 7-11 inspired example that you see above, for tonight's PKN Nashville Vol. 7 -- held on 7/11, get it? Also up today are posters/flyers for PKN Kansas City Vol. 11, PKN Cape Town Vol. 17, PKN Warsaw Vol. 6, and PKN Banja Luka Vol. 1. Photos We have two photo galleries to share today, the first for this past Saturday's PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19, which also marked the series 5th anniversary -- which explains why the crowd is holding a celebratory candle in the photo above. We had a tiny peek at Mallorca's Vol. 1 last week, but today we have a more complete gallery to share. PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19 [Facebook]PKN Mallorca Vol. 1 [Facebook]Calendar As we mentioned earlier, PKN Nashville Vol. 7 is happening tonight, and then tomorrow you can look forward to a packed evening: PKN St. Louis Vol. 9, PKN Regensburg Vol. 9, PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 2, PKN Wakefield Vol. 6, PKN Galway Vol. 7, PKN Blue Hill Vol. 4, and PKN Kyiv Vol. 8.

Tramping Huts

Architecture students typically build models for their theses, Callum Dowie constructed a complete building. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PechaKucha Night Auckland Vol. 17) he speaks of the tramping huts found throughout New Zealand -- once used for overnight stays on hunting trips, now used for long-term hikes -- and how they were built of materials that needed to be carried. These huts inspired him to construct a foldable, easily assembled (by 4 people, in 2 hours) living space that could have valuable real-world application for those in areas post natural disaster.

Depicting the Circle Hunt

Artist Carrie Walker is inspired by historical "circle hunts" -- in which hunters would form a circle around a large portion of land and slowly close in, killing every animal they came across. Carrie found rich imagery in descriptions of these events, and had a desire to depict the now-forgotten animals. In "Depicting the Circle Hunt" from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see how she embarked on a road trip to recreate scenes which she skillfully translated onto paper.

The Hunt for American Brilliant Cut Glass

"Upon seeing the green vase, I was speechless. It was wrapped in newspaper dated from 1970 and had been in the attic the entire time. It was a one of a kind piece, and no one knew it existed.
