Art of the Pencils

@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

“Pencil is a small thing that can make a big difference in the lives of people who use them.”

In "Art of the Pencil" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16 , Caroline Weaver, amateur pencil collector but lifelong pencil lover, founded CW Pencil Enterprise in November 2014. With her pencil experts, Caroline digs up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history. As simple as it may be, the pencil is something which despite advances in technology will never become obsolete.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016.

Why be a Woman?

@ VOL 5 ON DEC 12, 2016

Artist Lucy Ayliffe performs an original text based on interviews with her peers, a surgeon specializing in labiaplasty and copy from a campaign advertising men's clothing. The conflated and 'cut up' views reflect a sense of anxiety and confusion often felt when overwhelmed by a constant feed of sexualized and 'perfected' images creating unrealistic expectations of how women should look and behave.

Objects in Disguise

Phasmatodea -- commonly known as stick-insects or leaf-bugs -- are an order of insects who blend very well into their surroundings. Swedish designer Tove Thambert was inspired by these animals' ability to convince the viewer that they were seeing something very ordinary, and set out to produce a whole range of "Objects in Disguise".  In this edition of "Presentation of the Day" (from Tokyo Designer's Week 2012, as a part of a special "Sweden in Style" PechaKucha event) Thambert discusses the process by which she finds items or accessories that may have a certain social stigma about them. One example she shows is the mirror: this item is something every woman carries in her purse, but most men would not be caught dead with a mirror on his person. For this reason, Tove concocted a mirror that fit the place you might find a pocket-watch on a suit. When her grandfather felt embarassed to walk with a cane, she designed one that looked more similar to something everyone carries about: an umbrella.
