Del Otro Lado: A Narrative
BY ANGELICA MERCADO
@ VOL 24
ON DEC 01, 2017
Angelica Mercado’s work is the ultimate fight for identity. In "Del Otro Lado: A Narrative...," Mercado tackles the tough issues in an attempt to embrace the divide in which she exists. Therefore, her work demonstrates the constant state of confusion in which she stumbles, falls, stands, fights and ultimately lives in, with themes of loss, trauma, longing, healing, and overall finding a sense of belonging in this space she calls home. In a time of escalated tension toward immigrants and their families, “Del Otro Lado,” shines a light on the status quo. For those who are on this side, you will find yourself thinking, questioning, and overall attempting to understand what it means, to live in the in-between; in-between two cultures, two countries, two identities.”

Print Space Tokyo
Ever wonder what the Tokyo art world is like? This book will give you the inside scoop. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Print Space Tokyo" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 51, book designer and web developer Craig Mod speaks about his Tokyo-based print and web projects, in particular about Art Space Tokyo, a beautifullly illustrated compilation of Tokyo's best, most unique, and sometimes hidden galleries.
Yajima-san emphasizes the roof in his work, above all else. (ha!) Architect Kazuhiro Yajima discusses (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 109) the relationship between three key constructive elements: roofs, walls, and the floor. In "Making Space" he focuses on the roof element, specifically the temporary roof we often call the umbrella. Kazuhiro tells a story of a young couple in Europe he saw kissing under an umbrella and how it inspired him to build a tool that allows its user to bring private activity to public spaces.
Virtual vs. Habitable Space
Do your virtual interactions weigh down on you? Viviana De Loera challenges architects, builders, and designers to compare the virtual “templates” designed by for-profit companies like Google and Facebook to the frenzied condo living, boxed dwellings, and office spaces we exist in every day. In "Virtual vs. Habitable Space" from PKN Toronto Vol. 26, Viviana asks, "What are we teaching the 'template generation' in both their virtual and habitable spaces?"
Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?
Space. The final frontier. For zero-gravity ping-pong-ball parties. Maryam Nabavi, an Innovation Strategist at Idea Couture, talks about her strategy for the future of commerical space (i.e. Virgin Galactic) as a service industry. If you ever thought about living in space, then small bathrooms, carbon-dehydrated food, and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements are probably not what you had in mind. However, in "Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?" from PKN Toronto Vol. 27, we learn that Nabavi redesigned the experience to have humans at the center of the problem so that it can be an enjoyable and memorable experience for anyone no matter their financial or physical situation.
The Information of Space
“Space is information-rich, and the events that occur therein provide narrative.” Miles Thorogood explores how space provides information and can be interpreted by artists in different ways. In “The Information of Space” from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see this concept is the basis behind Audio Metaphor, a company which transforms text into soundscape composition. Miles describes some projects that have been done to create AI systems which mimic animal behaviour.
Time, Space, and Playing Fields
Our bodies act as a shared experience, and death is the one unifying conclusion. Abdi Farah contemplates what it means to be and artist. In “Time, Space, and Playing Fields” from PKN New Orleans Vol. 11, he discusses his passion for art in New Orleans, and seeking kindred spirits through an exploration of metaphysical and imaginary worlds and sports.

Startups in Space
"Nowadays we have new tech. Everybody has an iPhone and actually these are more powerful than any of the satellites now in space. And thats the idea. We are basically using them produce space stuff that is way more powerful and much less expensive." In Startups in Space from Tokyo Vol. 127, spacecraft developer at Axelspace in Tokyo, Lucas Bremond catches us up on the accomplishments of the space programs of past and present, reminding us that many of historical cosmic triumphs were achieved with less computing power then that of our smartphones. He then turns our imaginations to the future, proposing a new age of space exploration where the playing field has been levelled, the barrier of entry lowered, an exciting new era of new inexpensive tech in space, which we can all potentially participate, and for the benefit of all.
Shaping Space and Realities
"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands." In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking.
Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease
"I want to destabilize the viewer in relation to the work."In Confined Architectural Space and Psychological Unease from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, artist, sculpture, and professor, Gary Sczerbaniewicz's shares his practice involving an insatiable fascination with interior architectural spaces that evoke a sense of psychological unease. This compulsion toward an aesthetics of anxiety leads him to fabricate confined space environments which include-scale shifts-using architectural models seamlessly blended into full–sized structures - into which the viewer is invited to physically enter and explore.
