Play, Pause, Rewind, Fast-forward

MAY 8th 2024, 7,30pm • VANCOUVER PLAYHOUSE

PechaKucha is a free online and offline global storytelling platform that celebrates people, passion, and creative thought. Our users share ideas and connect with others visually, concisely and memorably. We are redefining authentic human connectivity through inclusive social engagement and technology.

The PechaKucha 20×20 presentation format is a slide show of 20 images, each auto-advancing after 20 seconds. It’s non-stop and you’ve got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way. PechaKucha was created in Japan in 2003 by renowned architects, Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. The word “PechaKucha” is Japanese for “chit chat.”

Paul Wong’s presentation Play, Pause, Rewind, Fast-forward, focuses on the theme of Feng Shui/Wind & Water which will be the flow connecting recent works, new projects in progress alongside pioneering videoart installations and ground-breaking films, performances, site-specific public art commissions, neon sculptures, large scale murals & video projections on architectural facades.
