A couple of weeks back, I gave a talk during a Pecha Kucha night at the Temporary Art Centre in Eindhoven. Pecha Kucha is a presentation format, in which your talk is accompanied by 20 slides, which are shown for 20 seconds each. I spoke about 3 things I learned from folding 1000 origami paper cranes and giving them away to random strangers.

If you’re curious, you can watch the video and see me talk (click through if the video doesn’t show up in your email or reader)!

The introduction isn’t 100% accurate (I didn’t grow up in Chile and India, but I did stay there for a couple of months later in life. Also, I have helped in an orphanage in India for about a day, but did a lot of other things there as well). Also towards the end of my talk the laptop there had some sort of existential crisis. So from there my presentation is stuck on one image. Despite of these small imperfections, I think the talk itself wasn’t much affected.

What do you think of the lessons I speak about? Do they fit with your experiences?
