Back in April, I was among the invited guests to speak during an installment of the 18×18 Speaker Series at Art Square Theatre in the 18b Arts District. The format of these presentations was based on the Pecha Kucha 20×20 events, where a speaker had 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to get across his or her message. For the 18×18, the format was adjusted to 18 slides, 18 seconds each. The theme for the night was “Art Attack,” which basically left it open for translation to the presenters. I opted to talk not about myself or even art directly, but the very concept of being an artist, how one defines oneself, and the notion of ambition versus expectation.
Why am I only sharing this video with you now? Because I just recently found it online.
