to see a couple of pieces from the collection I will be showing tonight, as well as those of other presenters. 20 slides/20 seconds each! Sounds like a brutal format, a kind of speed dating with art, but I think I like it: it prevents preciousness from slipping into the presentation. The time constraint has it’s price too.. Didn’t Mark Twain once complain about the 5 minutes he was given once to deliver a speech, saying that he’d need two weeks to prepare for it, while he could give a 2-hour lecture today! :)
I am really excited about this event…., and I better practice my “5 minutes” now!
