Aluminum Mesh People & Central Urban Agriculture [PechaKucha]
In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archives we learn about a presentation that offers up the center of cities as one of the best places to grow produce.
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.
