Contrivances of Science and Life

@ VOL 10 ON AUG 28, 2014

Biotechnology can be understood as a transition from art to industry. There are amazing questions that will allow us to better understand the mechanisms that enable us to function. There are also real challenges that exist in providing scientists with the right tools, while makeing sure they ask the best questions. Dave McCabe highlights this transition from learning about mechanisms of life to developing tools that enable others to do better science.

PKN Worcester Debuts This Week

httpv:// PechaKucha Night launches in Worcester this coming Sunday (June 14), and one of that city's organizers, Cynthia Woehrle, has posted the video above in which she goes over the presenters and talks about what PKN means to her. Here's a quote from an interview done with Cynthia at Worcester Magazine: What are you hoping will come from such an event in Worcester? Bring the art community closer? Inspire artists? I am looking to integrate artists of all types of media ( writers, filmmakers, scientists, painters, musicians, designers, good will doers,) and bring them to a format where they can share ideas, projects and inspirations on the same playing field. As well as give the community an opportunity to to hear perspective from creative thinkers. We are not looking to only inspire artists but inspire anyone. As much as I want to promote the local arts community this event reaches beyond that and connects Worcester to an international network of 200 cites in the Pecha Kucha organization. Ultimately my hope would be that new and exciting projects will be born out of connections made or ideas shared that would cultivate the creative community here in Worcester. PKN Worcester is also following in the footsteps of previous city exchanges by partnering up with PKN Halifax -- its Vol. 2 is happening the same night -- to share some video greetings. Below, the flyer for the PKN Worcester Vol. 1, designed by Todd Rawley.

PKN Helsinki Vol. 8

PechaKucha Night in Helsinki Vol. 8 was held back in January, and was organized in conjunction with the University of Helsinki, with speakers including a mix of both scientists and creatives. We've highlighted a few photos from the event in this post, but there's much more to see in this Flickr photoset. Thanks also to co-organizer Anni Puolakka for the descriptions of each presentation. Below, a look at the presenters who took part. Tapio Vapaasalo, Professor of Graphic Design, to talk about 20 negative things (including 'Deadline') that are integral as well as essential in a designer's work. His presentation was purely typographical. Timo Vesala, Professor of Meteorology, to talk about his passion for movies (he was wearing a t-shirt with Jack Nicholson in The Shining) and unpretentiousness as well as about why he likes making scientific research (starting with chaotic piles of paper and and finishing with one neat document where it's all figured out). Ilkka Niiniluoto, Chancellor of University of Helsinki, to talk about the internationalisation of the University of Helsinki. He showed images of his travels all around the world and gave the audience a good idea about the highly global nature of the world's university network. Toni Kauppila, Architect and Lecturer in Spatial Design, to talk about his sources of inspiration: Japanese information graphics, human traces of life in the city and people's movements in a space. Sampsa Vanhatalo, Docent of Clinical Neurophysiology, to talk about the development and protection of premature babies' brains. Among others he showed a picture of his own baby, which became a natural object of home-based research when born (with sensors attached all over the child's head). Meiju Niskala, Performance artist and writer, to talk about serendipity in her life and art: e.g. how she chose the name for her dog (by putting a list of names on the floor and seeing where the puppy pees) and how she found a spouse (by leaving a note between a library book – and getting response). Pekka Timonen, Cultural Director of Helsinki, to talk about the designation of Helsinki for World Design Capital of 2012. His presentation implied that design should belong to everyone and take place everywhere in the city, and that the city of Helsinki is strongly committed to take things forward concerning this. Teemu Leinonen, Professor of New Media Design and Learning, to talk about his heros Steward Brand (who made the Whole Earth Catalog) and Douglas Engelbart (best known for inventing the computer mouse). Kari Enqvist, Professor of Cosmology, to talk about how we can look at history by looking at heavenly bodies. He was also just about to tell us the meaning of all life and universe as the time ran out!

And Braam, ran 4 200 km along the entire length of the Great Wall of China in a single attempt. This translated to running over a marathon a day for over 100 days! Scientists said this was impossible. Also the magical world of bee keeping and a glimpse into the fascinating life of a honey bee -we humans have so much to learn from these little creatures!

The Stories of Rocks

Geologist Patrick Johnstone's job rocks! I know, I know, these jokes take such a mineral amount of effort -- I couldn't resist. In today's Presentation of the Day, "The Stories of Rocks" (from PKN New Westminster, Vol. 2), we find that, through studying trace fossils, Johnstone can infer the behavior and the environments of countless ancient species. Using tools and evidence developed by scientists over many years, he can explore the narrative of the rock that he is studying.

3D Printing Biology

In today's Presentation of the Day, "3D Printing Biology" from PKN Miami Vol. 26, we hear from Corrie Van Sice, who works at the intersection of design, engineering, and biology. Corrie has used 3D-printing technology to engineer proto-cells (structures that look like real cells -- they include a nucleus and cell walls -- but not made from anything living).  She speaks on the under-discussed dilemma of "innovation" run amok and posits that if more scientists were to operate like artists (in that they could explore their studies without university or corporate control), development in their field might take new and exciting direction.

From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines

"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?" One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it? In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols discusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.
