Crapestry / PechaKucha night

I’ve just come back from my second PechaKucha night at Chapter Arts, and as before the lineup was exceptional. For me, the highlight was Theo Humphries’ talking about his Crapestries. I think I may have to give this a go myself!

Richard Weston kicked off with his own hobby, of scanning incredibly detailed close images of natural materials and using them in art, fashion and architecture. Guto Evans‘ gave an excellent primer on what exactly branding is, and why it is important. Finally, Jon Chase brought the house down with an amazing rap: “Life – An autobiography.”

The other talks were equally good, but these struck a particular chord with me.

I’ve pretty much missed the first week of the Cardiff Design Festival, but there’s still plenty more stuff coming up that looks great. In fact, I’m going to have to run around on Saturday to see everything I want to!
