Today on the show we have four of the presenters for PechaKucha Night happening this Thursday, October 9: Addy Smith-Reiman, Freddie Croce, Julie Mallis and Nikki Dy-Liacco.
Come out and see these people present. They’ll be joining many others, including Phyllis Kim, who you remember from last time.
PKN vol. 19 takes place on October 9 at 6:20 pm at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Center, 805 Liberty Ave in Downtown Pittsburgh. Admission is $15 and includes, drinks, eats, and entertainment.
To start out the show we have a fun audio tour of the sand casting process. Here are the pictures that accompany that tour.
the forms, made of high density foam, sitting inside a flask

the mixer. you’ll be hearing a lot from the mixer
scrap iron …

… all the way down
… so it can be melted to be poured into the sand casts. Hope you enjoyed the tour.
First we hear from Nikki Dy-Liacco. When she’s not working for DDI, she’s looking at cities through their lamp posts.
See more in her Facebook album.
Julie Mallis’ digital prints can be seen on her website. I like this one a lot …
… but they’re all good. Make sure you check out the moving images, too.
She’s got a million other things going on, too. Like helping run BOOM Concepts (who you can like on Facebook), or her collaboration with DS Kinsel, Magic Organs (getting some press here).
Freddie Croce runs inter*ARCHITECTURE with his wife, Jennifer Lucchino. More on him in the near future.
Addy Smith-Reiman is a Master Gardener working with Rivers of Steel to highlight the plant life at the Carrie Furnace.
She’s with creating the plaques which will be poured on October 25. Details here.
