Drawing Tells a Better Story

BY RODI ALKADER
@ VOL 19 ON OCT 10, 2015

"We are different, but we have something to share, like all of you ... I think the concept of love or empathy is not based on race or color or gender or religion. We all share this amazing feeling."

In response to the ongoing refugee crisis from Syria and parts of the Middle East. Kyoto-based researcher, and Syrian national, Rodi Alkader, has been drawing his thoughts on paper for years, but as the crisis continues to unfold, his drawings became a profound way for him to deal with his emotions. In this very personal presentation, "Drawing Tells a Better Story", from PechaKucha Night Kyoto Vol 19, Rodi shares his family's situation and adds a unique voice to the conversation. This presentation was part of the special PechaKucha Night Huddle held in Kyoto in October 2015.

Skin, Brain, Heart

BY CLARA COLEMAN
@ VOL 17 ON APR 12, 2013

Ever since Clara Coleman started seriously drawing and painting, she found a natural curiosity and urge to observe and record the things going on around her; mostly through self portraits. Clara uses herself as a model for a number of reasons. Although she does enjoy painting other people - friends and models - when she has the chance. A lot of how Clara spends her time is with paints on a surface, often times looking in a mirror, all while simultaneously reflecting on the different psychological, environmental, and cultural changes in her life.

PechaKucha Self-Portraits

Elisa Yon is the organizer of PechaKucha Night in Victoria, and she's been experimenting with the PK 20x20 format a bit, as described below: Elisa Yon, who organized Victoria’s Pecha Kucha night, is now in her first year of the MAA program at Emily Carr. Elisa is an architect who won an architectural design competition that led to her representing Scotland at the 2008 Venice Biennale, so she had no shortage of professional accomplishments to share with her fellow students and faculty. But in her getting-to-know-me Pecha Kucha presentation, she began not with the usual approach of showing slides of her work, but instead shared slides that others had sent her. Elisa asked some important people in her life to send her images that said something about her, and in speaking to those slides, Elisa spoke volumes about her work, character and key relationships. Based on that experience, Elisa is now experimenting with Pecha Kucha as a way of curating self-portraits using contributed images. She’s asked for my help, and I have agreed to solicit 20 images from different people who know me — some well, some not so well– in order to build a collective picture. It’s kind of like a 360 evaluation based on creative feedback rather than analytic feedback. You can read the full post here. Why not try it yourself?
