Pecha Kucha

Although I was reeling from my own presentation, I really liked the presentation just after mine by Jude Andersen, Artistic Director of Punctum. Andersen started by referring to the direct translation of Pecha Kucha – mentioning that she hasn’t had a haircut for over a year and invited anyone from the audience to cut her hair to aid the – chit chat.

One of the projects she discussed (pictured here in the background. And I’m sure it’s disconcerting to have someone photograph you directly from the front the row) was on topic. Centred in a Chinese market garden, the project built a toilet surrounded by the garden fertilised by the ‘night soil’.
