The invisible work against terrorism


Terrorists are invisible. It is impossible to find a terrorist in a crowded place full of people. Terrorism is based on fear. This fear might prevent people from doing things that they would normally do, going to places they used to visit, or just enjoying life. We might feel powerless with the knowledge that there is not much we can do about this threat. But in reality, a lot is being done. In this presentation, JRC researcher Martin Larcher talks about the invisible work to protect people from terrorism

The Profound Beauty of Indigo

"The choice to plant, transplant, weed, harvest, winnow, dry, compost, and ferment indigo entirely by hand is longer one of necessity. It is political. It is beautiful. It is labour. It is life." In The Profound Beauty of Indigo from Chicago's Powered by PechaKucha Event: United States Artists 2014 Artists Assembly, Ronald Ricketts shares his story of moving to Japan to teach English and explore Japanese craft heritage. He discovered indigo leaves and had an apprenticeship at a Tokushima dye factory. He became an indigo farmer, dyer and visual artist. His work developed into creating installations, establishing a social practice and spreading the indigo art.

The Long Black Wig Project

“Recall the idiom Everything But the Kitchen Sink…This is NOT that space.” In The Long Black Wig Project from PechaKucha Night Bryan’s 5th Volume Speaker Becky Eddy Phillips rhythmically details a her multimedia artistic piece. The Long Black Wig Project enters contemporary plots in art, science, domesticity, mothering, and feminism. Using art like a verb, it wavers in leaps and falls between the intellectual and domestic realms. At the same time, the work is introspective, balancing the overlapping (though historically antithetical) realms of mother and artist: how to stay connected to art depends on the artists connectivity to her children. An ambitious multi-media exhibit, it is contained within A Vacuous Space. A multitude of video vignettes are projected within it’s relative space. With titles such as Miss Sara Tonin’s Fancy and My Feminism Hurts My Marriage, the imagery is strangely eerie with a feminine edge as if there were an invisible link to the past lives of women associated with Surrealism. A long wig is seen throughout the work and acts as a connective fiber.

The Fragrant City

“Smell gives us a sense of place. Our nose is our built in navigator and every city is filled with smell scapes.” In The Fragrant City from PechaKucha Night Maastrict Volume 29, Speaker Tanja Schell shows how powerful one of our most ignored senses is. We live in a world of scents. And we are influenced by them 24/7. All those scents influence our mood and our wellbeing, all of them. Even those we are not aware of. Scent is a hidden but powerful dimension which adds a strong sense of place to the urban space, it makes cities more attractive and more safe. After ages of reducing and controlling odour emissions in the city, time has come to develop a positive policy to use this invisible power.

Brighton Mascots

  When Woody took up the banton of producing the regular PechaKucha Nights in Brighton, back in 2015, it was decided that a new mascot should be featured at the start of the evenings.   So far, there's be 'Astro Boy' turning himself invisible for Volume 20's 'Japan Brighton' Night; a locally grown walnut befitting both the 'Good Grub' themed event but also perfect for explaining what PechaKucha is - "in a nutshell PechaKucha is just that - what people do + love condensed in to 6minutes 40"; a neon yellow birthday candle celebrating PechaKucha turning 13; a compass for Volume 25 Getting Around; a collective of images for 'All Together'. Woody says she knows what the next mascot will be for the first of Brighton's 2017 events called 'Re: Re: Re:' but for now she's keeping it under her hat.  Could it be that?  Join the Brighton crew on 25th January for Volume 26 to find out.

The View Behind the Cafe

"Every week there are new items, objects, things, stuff that people abandon that people put out, leave out, the flotsam and jetsam of the modern age. It's just back there, new stuff all the time. In The View Behind the Cafe from PechaKucha Night Dayton Vol. 32, James Luckett observes the parking lot behind his workplace.  His photos transform the invisible into new compositions, from abandoned dolls to shadows on concrete.
