Pecha Kucha :: Summer 2012
Motion Lab's first activity for the 2012-2013 academic year was to host a Pecha Kucha session. Meaning "chit chat" in Japanese, Pecha Kucha originated among designers (and architects) to exhibit visual slides of a "project" or a specific theme with a formula of 20x20. Only show 20 slides at 20 seconds each - in that way you have six minutes to share your project, and your main point without rattling on a tangent to the next. So, as in an formulaic way to welcome everyone back into session, Motion Lab had Pecha Kucha with the theme of "summer" - basically anything goes. Each person was to define his/her summer, on how it went, through 20 visual slides. And here's my Pecha Kucha for Summer 2012. Keeping it short - I went home in California to spend time with family while working on a project. That then led me to Hong Kong with an unexpected side trip to Phuket, Thailand. Summing it up - Summer 2012 was project-infused, awashed by great ideas and artistic inspirations from traveling aboard.
