The theme for the first PKSJ event is REFLECTION.
Pecha Kucha themes set a tone but should not dictate a content barrier for presenters. Arguably an association with the theme is preferred, and probably expected by the audience.
1.the act of reflecting or the state of being reflected.
2.an image; representation; counterpart.
3.a fixing of the thoughts on something; careful consideration.
4.a thought occurring in consideration or meditation.
5.Physics, Optics. the return of light, heat, sound, etc., after striking a surface.
Presentations will include:
"My Problems with Monkeys" by stand up comic and user interface designer Howard Cooperstein
"I Shoot at Night" a review of amazing long-exposure night photography and stories about exploring abandoned places in the dark
"Form over Function" - Surprises from a graphic designer
"Making of Crackpot Comics" a small filmaker on a budget makes a big "Clerks-style" movie as a series of webisodes. Sounds like a movie in itself? - Likely a sneak preview too.

And several more...
