Participating in Basel’s first Pecha Kucha Night was great. The PK rules – present 20 slides for 20 seconds each – impose a set of boundaries that makes presenting a completely different experience than your usual Powerpoint spiel: There’s just too much going on to have stage fright, it’s all about the excitement of making the most of the 20 x 20 seconds.
I’m especially pleased with the great review the Tagesanzeiger, one of Switzerland’s biggest newspapers, wrote about the event and my presentation:
“He shows what probably no one in the audience – around 100 people – has ever seen: A deserted classroom, children’s respirators, an amusement park that was never used, the totally irradiated forest – everything in close proximity to the decomissioned reactor, deserted, in unbelievably warm colors, and at the same time icy cold in its mood. Suess manages to distract even the chatterers at the back of the room and make a big impact with his entertaining performance.” (translated from German)
If you haven’t seen the slide deck, here it is.
The next event is on October 22nd, again in “Unternehmen Mitte” in Basel. Put it in your calendars!
