How to Fight Darkness

BY PHILIP SMITH
@ VOL 54 ON DEC 08, 2015

"Is reality this dark? I don't believe so. I believe it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we think everything is bad, everything will be bad."

In How to Fight Darkness from PechaKucha Night Stockholm Vol. 54Philip Smith poses the question, "How will we fight the dark powers and the evil galactic empire together?" (the evil empire being the often sensationalizing and fear-mongering media.) His answer is simple - ART! ...and more specifically, Art made of Light! Here Philip gives us a very funny and uplifting PechaKucha on the challenges the the world faces in a continuous barrage of negativity, and reminds us to use the force (and make art!)

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, December 21st, 2015.
