I committed to sharing my work at the PK Night last week. Going into it, I felt really good about the way my slides flowed and I worked hard to fit what I wanted to say into the PK format: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide. I was 5th in line to present and after really enjoying the funny, light-hearted, off-the-cuff nature of the first four presenters, I realized that I was the girl taking myself way too seriously. The realization made me very nervous and I got a bit choked up. Perhaps this was not the best format for an over arching thesis of my work, but I did it and wanted to share because it says all the things I’ve ever wanted to say in an artist statement in a way that I think will be accessible to more people.
