@ VOL 30
ON JUN 13, 2016
What does movement represent for you? For Sanne Vaassen, movement is either a transition or a transformation within a certain duration. Her works capture some of these movements, like the types of water current, a tree's transformation from summer to winter...Her works represent the reality in which we all live, and what more important and interesting, the established symbols and traditions that we apply.

PKN Comes to Krakow
One of the latest cities to join the PechaKucha Night family, Krakow has now confirmed that its Vol. 1 is set to happen October 17 (from 21:00) at the Laznia Nowa theatre. Organizer Artur Bialy sends in this essay on what sounds like a terrific venue. Łaźnia Nowa is the youngest theater in Cracow. It is placed in Nowa Huta – the youngest and the most mysteriuos district of the city. As our residence we use postindustrial halls, in which young blue collar workers of The W.Lenin Mettalurgical Industrial Complex were trained. Just a few years ago lathes, milling machines and other machines were still used in these rooms. You can even still smell machine grease, though the spirit in here is completely different. The scene, the audience, spectacles, concerts and exhibitions...everything to complete the transformation of this place. Grey blocks of flats, lots of greenery, some church crosses and huge supermarkets. This is the scenery that surrounds our theater. For some beautiful, for other cursed. Nowa Huta always used to evoke such radical emotions. This place used to be ruled by history. Since it`s creation Nowa Huta was a test paper of all political and social changes. Inhabitiants of this district were marked by history and ideas. Maybe that is the reason why changes of '89 were so hard for them. At first the beloved child of communistic regime, the city without god, built in opposition to conservative Cracow, then the heart of resistance and “Solidarnosc” -- in which many fights for human freedom and dignity took place, one of John Paul II's favourite places, afterwards free trade, downfall of The Industrial Complex and...oblivion. Huta wasn't important anymore. The inhabitiants had their memories and a travesty of industrial district. Mass media soon named it as the most dangerous city area. 250 thousand people were sentenced to stereotype. Our work is an objection to such viewing of this district. People want to be, live and to work here. Discouragment, indifference and apathy are everywhere and you always got to fight them with consistent work and persistence. I believe that every kind of creative activity has a affrimative message. It comes out in the very act of creation. Basic message: Do not be afraid to speak for yourself, take initiative and if you do not like something try to change it by yourself. By our activity we encourage to this. In Łaźnia Nowa we want to create a place where actors and inhabitians of Nowa Huta are both feeling good... Nowa Huta is an inspiration. Bartosz Szydłowski Director/Główny Łaziebny

Flyer for PKN Melbourne Vol. 18
PechaKucha Night in Melbourne Vol. 18 is set for this Wednesday (July 20), and here are more details from co-organizer Michelle Emma James -- you'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.PechaKucha Melbourne Vol. 18 will be held on the opening night of the State of Design Festival. Established in 2004, the State of Design Festival is the largest and most innovative design event in Australia and the heart of design thinking and design activity. In 2011 the State of Design Festival explores design in, on and around projects that are transformative, mobile and networked, under the theme 'Design That Moves.' We have subverted this for our PechaKucha Night theme: 'Brake, Break, Broke'. Think putting on the brakes, think pause and stop, taking a break, think crashing, smashing, breaking, think broken, think going for broke. Design starts when we stop. Our guest speakers include Nicklas Wallberg who through his organisation Tram Sessions encourages Melbourne artists and bands to perform on city trams, artists Sarah Barrow & Michelle Gordon who celebrate transformation and new beginnings in the guise of building and destroying piñatas, and Melbourne's best-loved cartoonist, poet, and whimsical cultural commentator Michael Leunig. The night will also feature: architects Jeremy McLeod and Ben Callery, fashion designer Liam Revell, researchers Jerome Frumar and Tim Schork, and inventor of hipDisk, Danielle Wilde. Our audience will gather on the plaza created by Nathan Coley for his exhibition, Apperances at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art for an evening of conversation and social connectivity. Street food and locally-made craft beer will be on tap throughout the evening.
Designing a Water Bottle for the Future, Washing Books, and PK at the World Architecture Festival
Presentations Kaz Yoneda (of Takram Design Engineering) talks (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) about a recent project with a Korean company that saw him try and design the "water bottle of the future." Anja Kirkeby explains the topic of her presentation (in Danish, from PKN Aalborg Vol. 7):I use books as the material in my present work and process them in different ways. I have washed 70 books in my washing machine on different programmes in order to see how paper, binding, soap, spindry and other factors influence the sculptures. I took them out of the machine and dried them exactly the way they came out. Now I know a lot more about the effect of washing in a machine, about the difference between a sculpture and a lump of papier-maché and what soap and fabric softener does to the colour of the items. The proces emphasized discussions on: what is art (and what is not), is changing a book blasphemy or transformation from one artform to another, and is a book only a book when it is readable? By exhibiting my books I have experienced what happens when we meet the unexpected on our way through everyday life, and the necessity of being provoked to see and grasp the ordinary in surprising new ways. Posters Singapore had its Vol. 5 a month ago -- that's the poster pictured above (it was added to our Tumblr blog a while back), and we highlight it because this week saw another PK event in the city, part of the World Architecture Festival. PK cofounder Mark Dytham was on hand for the event -- he's participating in the conference as a judge and speaker -- and we'll share all of the presentations from the event on the PK site later this month.

Aluminum Mesh People, City Center Agriculture, and Photos from Kyiv
Presentations In her presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95), artist Yuko Hishiyama shares the striking work she's been producing, mostly in the form of sculptures made of aluminum mesh. The resulting "people" she creates have not only starred in their own shows, but have also been made to interact with other famous pieces. Ixchel Lechuga's presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Xalapa Vol. 8) is all about why the city center can and should produce agriculture products. She makes her point by highlighting some of the advantages that can be felt by both the countryside and the city. Posters We have two new additions to the Tumblr blog today, one for PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 2 and one for PKN Istanbul Vol. 15, pictured above.

This PechaKucha Night will be organised within the "Dutch-Turkish Connecting Creativity" program during the opening week of the Istanbul Design Biennale titled "Imperfection." "Oh God! Please Give Me A Makeover!" As all the efforts on urban transformation/regeneration/revitalisation go on, what are we transforming into as citizens? Has new urbanism regenerated the way we are and the way we behave? Are we really getting revitalized? What is the new URBANITAS? Architects, designers and fashion designers from Turkey and the Netherlands will present their cases around the theme of "Urban Transformation." Photos The photo above is from this photo gallery [Picasa] for last July's PKN Kyiv Vol. 8. Here's also a report on the event (Google translated).

Felipe Francisco De Souza
Don't forget that our last PechaKucha Night of the summer is happening this Wednesday (July 31). For the past week we've been highlighting all of the presenters or our Vol. 105, and continue today with Felipe Francisco De Souza. Here, he explains in his own words the topic of this presentation: Japan, a nation with a high likelihood for natural disasters, over the past 100 years, spent considerable efforts to achieve better technical-technological results for it urban reality transformation. Throughout this entire process, methods for territorial planning were institutionalized over the country, mostly participative processes aiming to control urban sprawl and to implement infrastructure and land pattern changes without the extensive use of expropriation. If you compare Japanese cities like Nagoya, Hiroshima or Tokyo, year after year, decade after decade, you will realize massive transformation - new roads, railways, buildings, and public greens. But how they do that? What can we learn from Japanese urban development practices that can contribute for a better urban future worldwide?
