Pecha Kucha on March 1

We had so much fun the first time, we’re doing it again.

Pecha Kucha brings together multiple presenters from within the local design community: architects, artists, industrial designers, photographers, creative thought leaders, and more. Each presenter shows 20 images, each image for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically, and the presenters talk along to the images. This makes for a lively, rapid-fire presentation format, celebrating a wide variety of local creative work.

The event is free, beverages will be available for purchase and the atmosphere will be full of creative energy. Come support your local creative community on Thursday, March 1!

First AUTOMATA lecture: Wolfgang Buttress

ADF’s AUTOMATA season kicks off with Nottingham-based artist Wolfgang Buttress. His public artworks –  simple, elegant and contextual – seek to define and celebrate a sense of place and the sublime. He has received numerous awards for “Hive” (below) at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London.

For Hive, accelerometers (vibration sensors) are used to measure the activity of a real bee colony, and feed real-time signals to a 1000 RGBW LED light array inside the spherical void. Algorithms are used to convert the bee colony vibrations into lighting effects.

ANCHORAGE: Jan 22 (at Williwaw Social, new venue for 2018)
FAIRBANKS: Jan 23
JUNEAU: Jan 24 (at the APK State Museum, this lecture only)
