One of the presentations that quite literally blew the crowd away at last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 71 was by Rie Hosokai (Daisy Balloon) as she showed off her amazing balloon designs -- yes, every single item you'll see in the presentation, including the flowers and the dresses, was created out of balloons.
In Defense of Mariah Carey and Genoa's Duplex Ride
Presentations We'll say this: there aren't many people who are bigger fans of Mariah Carey than Tom McBride. In his presentation (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 1), he shares the enthusiasm and infectious passion he has for his biggest idol. In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1) by Marco Cacciamani we learn about Duplex Ride, a cultural association founded in 2010 and interested in all forms of art, which mainly organizes events for electronic music and video projections. Duplex Ride is an idea in motion, it's an art collective, electronic research, experimenting in all its forms, including painting, photography, and writing. Posters There's no new addition to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight one of the posters we recently added. Above, a dog takes care of washing down last month's PKN Mendoza Vol. 5. Photos We now have full galleries of photos from last week's PKN Tokyo Vol. 94 to share, which you'll find on both Facebook and Flickr. All photos were taken by our regular photographer, Michael Holmes, along with his assistant Nomi. Calendar We have three PKNs happening tonight (August 2): PKN Winter Harbor Vol. 6, PKN Springfield, IL Vol. 8, and PKN Victoria Vol. 10. Tomorrow you can look to these three cities: PKN Panjim Vol. 3, PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 7, and PKN Hakata Vol. 7.
