My Pecha Kucha!

As promised, here is my presentation at Pecha Kucha here in Vancouver. I was a bit nervous as I don’t normally speak in front of 500+ people and it was tricky to do it without any control over the slides but I survived!

    GOOD CHOICE!

    • where did you get the toy? i am on a mission to collect Richard Scarry’s books but never thought about the toys

      • JUSSSTTTIINNNN

        hmm ive had that toy since i was litle so im not exactly sure where i got it, but it think it might’ve been from mcDonalds~ hmm

        ohman AND i remember we had “the busy world of richard scarry” video game for the sega genesis. i miss that.

  • Yeah, cool pecha kucha!

  • That was dope man. You dropped some knowledge.

  • that was great 🙂
    “DON’T COME TOO CLOSE” will stay with me forever.

    • i should scan in all the drawings from that one sketchbook they are hilarious

      • I think you should do a post about your drawings from that sketchbook. It’s always nice to see work from when you were young.

  • Ann

    jeff hamada, good man. 🙂

  • Corinna

    Haha I liked that, you’re funny Jeff 🙂

    Your first drawings made me smile, cause some of them were very similar to mine that age..

    • Corinna

  • Jon

  • Yeah, talented speaker. I’m glad you mentioned Denmark heh.. I believe that’s not very often that country is mentioned in the US heh..

    And funny to see the face behind this website heh..

    • im from Canada actually – the talk was here in Vancouver

  • Rebeca

    there was a pecha kucha night in my city once, very few were as entertaining and funny as you, superb job 🙂

  • Hi Jeff,

    Yeah, it was a great talk. It is also great that you are honest about yourself, how you approach you work and above all you expressed the humble character that most successful people have.

    I too get nervous when I have to present.

    Good for you for helping the people in Sri Lanka to build their homes after Tsunami. You took many meaningful and beautiful photos.

    • hey thanks for the kind words Cho-wai! my trip to Sri Lanka is probably the thing im most proud of and maybe the best experience of my entire life so far. i’d like to go back there actually

  • sorry.. ofcourse.. canada heh.

  • Yeah, that is a good idea.

  • Kyle

    Nice job, this is a great video and captured the evening very well.

    Cheers!

  • emily

    – but it has made me really want to see some of your ceramics work

  • Gretchen

    You were pretty awesome. I think everyone who presented was nervous. Your presentation was funny and you inspired a lot of people. Cheeeesy but true!

  • congrats!
    PKN is a fantastic event, I’ve been to the origin place in TOKYO and had a lot fun! 🙂

    • thanks Carol – i’d love to go there at some point, somehow i’ve been to Japan and not Tokyo.

  • pandora

    terrific job! very inspiring!

  • Ha good stuff, very inspiring. Richard Scarry takes me back. 🙂

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
