On Sunday I gave a presentation in front of 120 people (!!) as part of the 9th “Pechakucha Night Kyoto”. “Pechakucha” is a style of presentation whereby 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each, advancing automatically.It was originally devised as an event for architects and designers to share their ideas but now you can give a presentation on just about anything! There’s actually very little you can say about an image in 20 seconds so this really forces you to be clear about what you are trying to say. In that sense, it was tricky to prepare for.

But..somehow I pulled it off! I chose to speak half about my research and half about my work, as they are linked and wrapped up in each other.


And so, by the magic of the internet, my presentation is now online as part of a video that was taken of the entire Pechakucha Night Event. If you feel so inclined, feel free to listen to my 6 minutes and 40 seconds of glory. I was the 4th presenter out of 11 for the night, so my talk starts at the 37 minute mark in this video. http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/28846579
