Leonardo Meza

There is no age limit -- or requirement -- to present at PechaKucha Night, and earlier this week 9-year-old "illustrillustrator" Leonardo Meza proved just that at the inaugural edition of PechaKucha Night in Savannah. That city's organizer Aaron Cohen had this to say on Leonardo's "Mythical Creature Drawings and Handmade Valentines" presentation: I don't know if it was his cuteness or his in-depth analysis of his own work, but this kid brought down the house. His keen observations and wonderment of how close the eye is to the brain and how two scorpions make a baby scorpion were hysterical. About four presenters thanked me afterwards for not having them follow his presentation.

Megan Mann

Today we cover another presentation from the "PechaKucha for Haiti" event in Berlin held in February. This time it's Megan Mann with "Somewhere between dusk and dawn -- a life around club music." 'Motivation Megan' rocked at the end of our Berlin PechaKucha for Haiti. When desperately asking around for presenters to jump in 3 days before the event was scheduled, it was her casual nonchalance and effortless promise to show some of her amazing photos that gave us organizers enough energy to pull it all through. A Guy Called Gerald -- who Megan is working with -- made some relaxing live music for Megan's photos from around the world.

PKN Christchurch Goes Metal

Since this humble writer certainly had his metal phase back in the day, the new round of posters created to publicize the upcoming PechaKucha Night in Christchurch Vol. 8 (May 20) has me wishing that the imaginary tees pictured were actually produced and available for sale -- make sure to check out all three. The posters were designed by Lizzie Parker, and have been pasted all around town. The metal-icious Vol. 8 will take place at Level 5 (Unlimited Paenga Tawhiti) and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page -- and yes, Mark will be there too.

Words Mean Things

"Words trigger emotions, they convey feelings, they describe and reveal." Average humans will often converse on a daily basis exchanging at least 200 words per minute. With this many of these words flying by, it's hard to sit back and think on what each word can really mean. In "Words Mean Things" from PKN Markham Vol. 1, Omar Khafagy takes us through on just a sample of what it's like to read a little deeper into what we say.

Context, Scale, Meaning, Place

"This image has no context, and absent context it has no meaning or at best arbitrary meaning." In "Context, Scale, Meaning, Place" from the PKN Williamsburg ArchEx sessions, architect Charles Piper admits that the title of his presentation may seem engineered and pretentious. And though he makes this statement, he points out that the showy title just an excuse to take us to some of his favorite locations; locations that are sure to make you acutely aware of context, scale, meaning, and place.
