Şeyi Adebanjo

Student in Tokyo

English = Time + Tenacity + Tears

PRESENTED ON FEB 24, 2016
IN TOKYO @ VOL 133

“English is a frankenstein's monster. It's a hodgepodge abomination of rules that we break all the time.”

In English = Time + Tenacity + Tears from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd Volume, student and literary enthusiast Ṣeyi Adebanjo, discusses her frustration with the “global language”. The real world is full of puzzles, all of which are more or less systematic. To her the English language itself is the most complex puzzle of all. Though she found learning the convoluted language to be a challenge, her tenacity as both a bibliophile and writer eventually paid off; the end product was worth it.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, April 22nd, 2016.

Curation is a Dynamic Process

BY CHAI YING LEE
@ VOL 30 ON SEP 24, 2016

李佳穎從分享策展開始,分為以教育為主題、以及以教育為方法兩種方式,讓大家理解每一次的分享都是策展的過程,想像、創作到創造,是每個人都在從事的事情,並以在中國的孩子創作策展經驗為例,策展就是一個動態的過程。

CHAI YING LEE starts by sharing curation divided into education being a theme as well as education being two methods, allowing people to understand that each time we share, it is a curatorial process. Imagination, conception, and creation is what all people are engaged in. In the case of Chinese children’s creative curatorial experience, curation is a dynamic process.
