The Work of Crofton & Benjamin Architects, Electronic Artists Eternity Brothers, and a Special PKN for Ekaterinburg

Presentations Leon Conradie is an experienced architectural academic, who is doing his Masters Research on "The Work of Crofton & Benjamin Architects: 1955 -1964." Crofton & Benjamin Architects were prolific in the 50s and 60s on beachfront developments, and have designed many iconic Durban buildings, each with an Art Deco style. In his presentation (from PKN Durban Vol. 7), Leon gives us a tour of these buildings, and points out their unique quirks. Pavel Fila is an IT specialist, programmer, and also organiser of the "Šramlfest" festival. In his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1), he talks about Eternity Brothers, a local group of VJs and electronic artists, and shares some of their work. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for the upcoming PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 6 (pictured above), which will be part of the The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary Art, an important event on the city's cultural agenda. It will also be the first time a PKN in Ekaterinburg is themed, with all presentations tied to art -- below, more details on the event:This time PechaKucha Night Ekaterinburg invites everyone to think about contemporary art during the parallel program of The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary art. We wonder if there is some place for modern art in modern person`s life? You can tell there about your personal experience, projects, interests or ideas in the field of modern art. We try to find the answer if it is necessary to be an artist to make art? Do you make art? Does your art have a target? What do you what from contemporary art as a consumer? How are your projects connected with art? Photos Take a look at last week's PKN Singapore Vol. 5 courtesy of this photo gallery [Facebook]. As organizer Jon Siegel tells us, it was a fantastic event with a great turnout (close to 300) and a terrific lineup of presenters. Above, a look at part of the crowd, and presenter Jon "Yongfook" Cockle.  Calendar We kick off the week with tonight's (September 10) PKN Muscat Vol. 2, and tomorrow you can catch Toronto's Vol. 17.

Albany, Vol 2. Work

Work it out, whistle while you work, putting in a good days work, working on it, that works… Work is such an important aspect of our daily lives and our common interactions.  We all work in different ways; we all perceive work as something different.  The line cook that opens their knife bag at 5:00pm is working just as the contactor that straps on their steel toed boots at 5:00am. We would like to welcome residents of Albany as well as people from all around the Bay Area to ‘Pecha Kucha in Albany, Volume 2’ and as you may have already deciphered, the theme is ‘Work’.  This event is free and will take place at the Albany Community Center on October 25th at 6:30pm.  We have very interesting presenters that range from Correctional officers to Urban Framers all centered around the theme of ‘Work’. The theme of work is one that is so broad we will never be able to cover its entirety in a month much less a few short hours.  That being said, this will be an opportunity for people to see the world through a lens that isn’t always considered, an opportunity to wear different hats for 6 minutes at a time.  If you are unfamiliar with the Pecha Kucha format here is a quick explanation; a presenter uses slides that change every 20 seconds, a total of 20 slides will make up the entire presentation.  Ideally the presenter will seamlessly transition between slides and take the audience along for an informative and intriguing journey of exploration.  To work is to be; we don’t mean that everyone has to have a job but we mean to state that everyone should have something that motivates them.  This definition is not set in stone but rather malleable and ever-changing.  The evolution of tasks and dedication may not always define you but most certainly an individual must define what they consider work. “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” -Rumi

How I Understand the Work I Do (and Myself) Better Because of My Little Sister

  "My sister reminds me every day why I do the work that I do, why these open, hard conversations are important, how we learn from them and how we help ourselves and others by having them" In How I Understand the Work I Do (and Myself) Better Because of My Little Sister from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 28, Jessica Caldas shares about the impact her little sister has on her and her art. Caldas is an aritist based in Atlanta and one whose work stems from challenging subject matter such as domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Jessica stood before strangers, some friends, and her sister to tell everyone of the special bond these two have and what the bond has meant for Jessica's art.
