Ocean of Art

@ VOL 21 ON MAY 18, 2017

"To me, my art now tells a story between nature and humanity, a push and pull, love and betrayal type of visual dialogue that exposes my emotional connections with the ocean."

In Ocean of Art from Pechakucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 21, we hear from Scott Denholm, a contemporary ocean artist. His art focuses on the ocean and explores the emotional relationships that we have with it. Through his life as a surfer and conservationist, he has sought to capture semi-abstract moments that resonate with people from all walks of life. His paintings are also created with environmentally friendly art materials. In his presentation, he wants to focus on these emotional relationships and explore them through his new series, "Elevation".

Open Air PKN in Honolulu

PechaKucha Night in Honolulu Vol. 4 was held a couple of weeks ago, and from the photos I'm seeing in this Flickr photoset, I'm getting really jealous of open air PKN events -- see photos from last month's edition of PKN San Francisco for more evidence. I now dream of a PKN Tokyo with a backdrop of pink sakura.

Heineken Open Design Explorations (Powered by PechaKucha)

We're very happy to announce that PechaKucha has teamed up with Heineken in support of the Open Design Explorations competition, to help find a few designers from all disciplines that will get to participate in the creation and launch of a temporary club space at next year's edition of Milan Design Week (Milano Salone). The first phase of the project will see four special PechaKucha events held in Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Milan, and New York, where those chosen to participate will get to present their ideas for the space using the 20 x 20 format. One designer from each city will be chosen and then sent to Milan to participate in the final phase, which is the creation of the space itself. This is first time we have teamed up with anyone for a project like this, but we feel it is a great way to give the PechaKucha community a chance to enter and hopefully be seen at the Milano Salone. If you would like to participate, please note that you need to be able to attend the PechaKucha events in one of the four cities mentioned, and your entry needs to be sent by August 14. You'll find all details on how to enter on the following page. Update: Please note that the deadline for the event in Tokyo has been extended to August 21.

Open Minds - Powered by PechaKucha

There's a "Powered by PechaKucha" event scheduled for Wednesday of next week (March 14) in London, at the ASC Erlang House. We include in this post more details on the "Open Minds at Erlang House" event, and you'll find the presenters listed on the flyer above. Artists Studio Company 128 Erlang House Blackfriars Rd Southwark London SE1 8EQ ASC OPEN MINDS The Artists Studio Company are giving some of its most promising artists an opportunity to present their work. The event takes place at the ASC gallery, Blackfriars Road, London on March 14th at 6.30pm. It will be a friendly and stimulating evening of short talks, aimed to promote meeting and discussion between artists and art lovers. An open invitation for entries was sent to artists occupying studios managed by the Artists Studio Company. Eight people have been chosen to create a diverse and interesting evening, showcasing a varied range of work from some of the best new and emerging artistic talent in London. The presentations will hosted under the global community of PechaKucha, whose events originated in Japan as a way for artists and designers to network and present their work in public. It uses a fast-paced format that has each speaker showing 20 images, and talking about each one for 20 seconds, so that each individual presentation lasts a punchy six and a half minutes. These presentations serve as a platform for creative practitioners to share their ideas and work with an audience during a relaxed evening out, and have now become popular in hundreds of cities worldwide. The Artists Studio Company (ASC) is a registered charity that provides affordable studios for over 700 artists across 11 sites in London, which also host several exhibition spaces. Through introducing PechaKucha events as part of our gallery program, we are extending our support for visual artists, and furthering our mission to widen public access to the arts. We invite anybody who is interested in the visual arts to attend the evening for an exclusive insight into the work of some of London's most exciting creative talent. Entry is £2, and there is a free bar.

Open Gov in Chicago: Changing the Government from the Outside In

Ever wanted to know when your city would fix that pot hole? Or when and where flu shots are available? Derek Eder utilizes open data -- government information readily available to the public -- to develop civic applications that not only reveal how the government works, but also allow local citizens to interact with, participate in, and use government services more effectively. In today's Presentation of the Day "Open Gov in Chicago: Changing Government from the Outside In" from Table XI's May Table Talks event, Derek demonstrates the advantages and enormous potential for open data; from food inspection to crime reporting to bus locations.
