If you haven’t heard a PechaKucha 20x20 talk yet, you should. It’s the art of concise presentation: a simple format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. 

For Beacon’s first PechaKucha night I presented the “Strange Fruit: Split Seed” drawing series I did based on photographs of lynchings.

You can hear the full presentation here.http://www.pechakucha.org/cities/beacon/presentations/strange-fruit-split-seed#http://www.pechakucha.org/cities/beacon/presentations/strange-fruit-split-seedshapeimage_11_link_0shapeimage_11_link_1
