"The people that I love the most are the hatarakimono..because they are the people who provide for this amazing Japan."
In HATARAKIMONO PROJECT from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 153, KNARF showcases his tape-o-graphic portrait documentary about the busy bees of Japan. Manually processing his work with packing tape (+ anything from hardware or office supply stores), KNARF applies the principles of “BRICOLAGE” to photography, a contemporary Art movement born in NYC in the early 2000’s. His works adopt a “READY MADE”, “ARTE POVERA”, “D.I.Y.” aesthetic that straddles between a recent analogue past and an extreme technological present.

More on Bogota's Postcard Project
We've already praised PechaKucha Night in Bogota's postcard project for Haiti a few times on PechaKucha Daily -- see previous posts for more details -- but here's a chance to show off another one of the illustrations, with the news that a few of the booklet's participants (Luisa Uribe, Pilar Berrio, David Nino, and Francisco Villa) will be presenting the project at the Salon de Ilustracion el Nogal -- more info here.
The Salaryman Project, Amazing Cakes, and 4000 in Tel Aviv
Presentations In October 2006, as he was taking photos of nature in the forest near Kawaguchiko, a salaryman with a suitcase appeared on the track. Ever since that day, Bruno Quinquet has tried to investigate the mysteries of office work in Japan through photography. He has exhibited this series -- which is the topic of his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92) -- in Japan and abroad. Last month, he launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the production of the "Salaryman Project Business Schedule 2013." These are not the cakes you are used to seeing. In this first presentation (in Italian) from PKN Pisa Vol. 1, Alessandra Pacini -- a cake designer -- shares some of the amazing cakes she's produced over the years. Cake design is an interesting form of art, in which anyone can make a professional-looking cake, with no limits to imagination -- although using only edible materials is key. Posters We have quite a few new posters up on the Tumblr blog today, including two from Kosice (for last week's Vol. 18, and the upcoming Vol. 19), a well as for PKN Okayama Vol. 14, PKN Orlando Vol. 6, and PKN Portsmouth Vol. 11 (above), which continues that city's elemental theme for the year (first was fire). And speaking of Portsmouth, here's a great video that was produced after the city's Vol. 10, that acts as a peek at that event, as well as a teaser for the upcoming Vol. 11: Photos and report What does a crowd of 4000 look like? It looks like what you see pictured above, from last week's PKN Tel Aviv Vol. 13 -- and there are more photos to see in this Flickr photoset. Also, we have the following report from PKN Tel Aviv organizer Anat Safran:We had another great PKN here at Tel Aviv, with 4000 people in the house. As usual the demand for tickets was huge and we were sold out in minutes... Me and my partner Itay were happy to host 9 presenters, all great and crazy, just the way we love them. We started the evening with a presentation by Liat Segal, who is running a studio for art and technology. Her projects are always fun and beautiful and involve music, paint and robots. Than came on stage Ofer Grunewald who is a young Bonsai artist. He shared his passion and explained the satisfaction of sculpting with a living material as trees. Mushon Zer Aviv (designer) and his wife Galia Ofri (painter) talked about their first common project that aims to illustrate wikipedia. With great drawings for esoteric articles and some very interesting questions about sharing knowledge -- these were a fascinating 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Artist and representative of the slow food movement in Israel, Rafram Hadad took us on a lovely journey in his different fields of creation, mixing visual arts and food in all middle eastern countries. A whole different experience was the one offered by brain researcher Moran Cerf, who is working in a very special lab in L.A. where experiments are made on live human brains. He can map the brain and than "read" one's thoughts or even allow handicapped people to control a robotic arm with their thoughts. Than came Ohad Zlotnik, a graduate student in visual arts, who presented his very smart project of 3D typography, with Hebrew letters that became real objects. Daniel Dover is a street artist who told us his short and so funny history trying to fit in the world of design, and what has finally brought him to do his street art interventions. Oded Ezer is a well known typographer who has presented his work in the first Tel Aviv PKN back on 2007. We were happy to invite him once again and discover his super intelligent projects. Oded told us about a typographic tattoo project, a graphic flag project, a social Skype-typo project, and more. The last show of the evening was by director Yair Kedar, who presented his current project, a documentary about Yona Wollach, one of Israel's most well known poet. His presentation ended with a live song by local singer Karolina whose big warm voice filled all our hearts with joy and emotions, with anticipation for our next PKN.Calendar Tonight (June 4) you'll want to catch PKN Stockholm Vol. 34, which we hear is going to be quite the event. Tomorrow, PKNs are happening in the following cities: PKN Louisville Vol. 8, PKN Chicago Vol. 22, and PKN Sydney Vol. 21. Please note that the PKN Hong Kong Vol. 12 that was scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed.

PechaKucha in the British Journal of Photography
Last year, Paris Photo fair held a very special PechaKucha event for photographers to speak at a rapid pace on their works. The British Journal of Photography featured this PechaKucha function in their January 2013 print edition, and now on the web. Here's a slice of their editorial pie: ...Now the format has gone viral. More than  cities have held a Pecha Kucha night - from Eureka in Montana, a town of just 1500 people near the Canadian border, to Dubai and its ever-growing multinational community - and it's no longer confined to architects and designers. "People have realised that you don't need more than six minutes and 40 seconds to get your point across. Pecha Kucha presentations allow anyone to get up and present their latest work or passion, especially young entrepreneurs who may only have one project to their name and thus not enough for a full lecture," observes Dytham. And so far everyone from schoolchildren to yacht builders have adopted it, photographers included. By all means, check out the full article, it goes quite deep into the benefits of the format not only to photography, but all creative medium.

The Odyssey Project
"It seeks to demonstrate how artistic cooperation transcends class, racial and social barriers ... and serves as an alternative to incarceration and penalty."In "The Odyssey Project" from PechaKucha Santa Barbara Vol. 14, Ahmed Asi describes the collaborative theater process between youth from a juvenile detention facility in Santa Barbara county and undergraduate students from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Using the template of Homer's Odyssey, the participants gather on the university campus to explore the mythic elements in their lives in order to reconstruct the epic poem in their own voices. The project leads to a public performance at a local theater. Everyone on this creative journey is a hero or heroine. The project is designed to honor youth in identifying their heroic life mission and map a course of action. It employs theater arts as a strategy for inspiring life affirming choices.
