The Overview Effect

@ VOL 38 ON APR 12, 2019

Mischa Horninge works at the Columbus Earth center. The center is one of the first large scale initiatives to present the overview effect - the view of the Earth from the orbit or the moon - to visitors. Many astronauts and cosmonauts have reported that something happens to you out there, a shift in world view that is profound and long-lasting. If we saw the earth in the way astronauts do, maybe we would treat the earth differently? Is this the medicine that comes just in time to stir us into action, loving and protecting our planet?

The Hidden Spaces

Sixteen years ago, as a young fine arts student, Kathy Toth got involved with the graffiti scene and was, from that point, led into some strange and unique places. The lifestyle of a graffiti artist is one of urban traversal; in many cases it involves reaching spaces one could not access by vehicle. Oftentimes graffiti spaces have little to no foot-traffic nearby and enjoy a certain quiet isolation, in other cases they involve skirmishes between the local authorities. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17), Kathy tells us of the alleyways, roofs of buildings, garages, abandoned greenhouses and undersides of freeways that she has found herself amongst in her time involved with this artistic subculture, and how it inspired her to get into professional photography. To see see more of Kathy's photography, check out her website.

Virtual vs. Habitable Space

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.
