Fori e design

@ VOL 10 ON FEB 24, 2016

Nelle mie nike ci sono migliaia di fori. Sono utili a permettere la traspirazione, una maggiore leggerezza, un forte   design ed identità.
Questa materia forata non è altro che un tessuto, definito da trama ed ordito, pieni e vuoti in rigoroso rapporto .
Al variare della percentuale e della dimensione del foro varia la funzione ed il contesto. Il foro  è sapienza produttiva, rappresenta, nell’assenza di materia, la capacità di utilizzare solo la quantità di materiale utile allo scopo. Attraverso un foro si può guardare  lo spazio , la città o il mare. Le tensioni si distribuiscono meglio attraverso di esso .
Un foro  o meglio in questo caso  una moltituidine di fori sono progetto che esce dalla fabbrica  per guardarvi attraverso.

Learning About Animation, Kyiv's Iconic Architecture, and "Hearting" Parks in San Diego

Presentations Daniel Muñóz is a character animator, and in this presentation from PKN Miami Vol. 14 he explains the main principles and techniques required to produce animation work that manages to suck viewers in. Oleg Zhary is a photographer who lives and works in Kyiv, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7), he gives us all a stunning photographic tour of the capital of Ukraine through its iconic objects. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster above, for the upcoming PKN San Diego Vol. 15. Here's more from PKN San Diego organizer Leslee Schaffer on the poster, as well as the event itself:We are holding #15 at a venue in which we are hosting an exhibit for the next two weeks, called Orchids, Onions & Opportunities, an offshoot of our Orchids & Onions program. The exhibit strives to accomplish a lot of things; mostly, true to the mission of SDAF (and why PKN is such a great fit for SDAF) to raise awareness and encourage practical discourse about matters relative to our build environment. It’s focus is on San Diego’s civic spaces, and lack thereof. We usually don’t theme our PKNs, having found that an organically curated event keeps things interesting and works quite well for us. This time, because of the exhibit, and other complementary events we decided to offer Making the Case for Public Space as a theme, and keep it interesting by presenting a range of perspectives on the matter. As fro the event flyer, we are blessed with the support of someone we believe to be one of the most inspired artists/designers ever here in San Diego. Her name is Terri Beth Mitchell. You have already posted a couple of her PKN SD flyers on your site, and we thought this one deserved special attention. Photos We have a couple of photo galleries to share with you today.

Organizer Marie-Neige Roux has this to say about PKN Nantes Vol. 5: "...all the speakers will have this theme in common: “Green”, due to the fact that Nantes is the 2013 European Green Capital city!" And on the cool poster from French graphic design studio Acetone Graphik, Yohann Morvan has this to say: "I see PechaKucha like a big mass of creativity. Each presenter speaks like a 'moralizer' to convince a say 'believe in my idea.'" ... "This poster is composed by impossible type forms and icons, a form of propaganda message ? My treatment in two-color process try to purify for a better and simple read and call back the posters of church concerts in the 50's."
