To compliment their two  “Lyrical Abstraction” exhibitions of sculpture (see http://www.culture24.org.uk/spliced/art69969) in the interiors and gardens of William and Robert Adam’s Mellerstain House 14th June – 30th Sep. 2009, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House 15th Aug. – 31st Oct. 2009 as part of the Japan UK 150 Festival, Kate Thomson and Hironori Katagiri of Ukishima Sculpture Studio, in association with architects Gordon Duffy and Rebecca Wober of Studio DuB,  have organised a pecha kucha on the theme of relationships between Art & Architecture.
Pecha kucha is a great fun idea started in Tokyo a couple of years ago by Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein – two architect friends of sculptors Kate Thomson & Hironori Katagiri. It has gone viral and is now on in over 218 cities around the world.

Participants show 20 slides for strictly 20 seconds each, meaning that the audience experiences an exhilarating high speed journey through a kaleidoscope of inspirations, ideas and work, with the concise nature of the presentations keeping the interest level high. 6min40 seconds each means there is the opportunity to introduce more interesting speakers and still have time to move around and talk to each other over a drink during the interval and afterwards.
