Night Vision went down Friday night at Strathcona Park and several hundred people showed up to listen to music, chill out, and enjoy some photography. There was a little incident with the sprinklers but there’s nothing like a group shower to spice up a party! Huge props to Natasha Lands and Jennilee Marigomen for making it all happen!
The first three shots are courtesy of Julian Hecht, and I shot the last two from my blanket!
As promised, here is my presentation at Pecha Kuchahere 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!
Last week I spoke at Pecha Kucha Vancouver Vol 6 and the 500+ seats in the theatre were all spoken for, the place was PACKED! This week I’ve been getting email after email from people who attended the event and I owe all these connections to Cause+Affect. They are the design studio that has been hosting Pecha Kucha here in Vancouver, and I was honored when they asked me to speak.
This is a little promo video (made by the good folks at Salazar) which shows what Cause+Affect are about and near the end there’s a bit of footage of Pecha Kucha. There is a video of my presentation coming and I’ll post it up as soon as it’s available.
Steven and Jane – thank you so much for the opportunity to speak I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Thank you to all of you who made it out on Thursday and those of you who couldn’t make it but supported me in spirit! I felt it!!
Tickets for tonight’s Pecha Kucha (Vancouver) sold out more than a week ago but if you got yourself tickets, I’ll see you there! I’ll be speaking LAST. Oh, come see me afterwards, I have gifts for you all!
Brian Tong created this totally impractical lunch kit out of a huge log, for his grad show. The spot for the silver chopsticks is a nice touch and I like that fact that there is even a spot for a napkin.
Tickets for Pecha Kucha Vancouver (May 21 – 7pm) are now available online!!! I will be speaking there along with eleven other people including designer Marian Bantjes! I listened to her speak at Justified West and I could feel previously unused parts of my brain coming alive. You do not want to miss this! Tickets are only $10 and they will sell out. Get them here.
If you don’t already know about Pecha Kucha, each speaker shows 20 slides for 20 seconds, and there is no pausing or reviewing of slides. So if someone is boring they are only boring for 400 seconds. Show up early and you get free booze. Feel free to bring tomatoes to throw at me – I was hoping I could go first and get it over with but it appears I am last so the pressure is on!
