We were set the task of presenting our research in a Pecha Kucha style presentation. This was useful as in a formal practice, presenting ideas to a client under time constraints is pretty normal. It also encouraged me to learn the content of the research and cement the cultural context.
Also presenting our thumbnail sketches of the chosen subcultures signifying practices, encouraged the group to give feedback, which was invaluable as the next stage was to design.
The Pecha Kucha should be 10 slides long and 20 seconds per slide. For the final it will be 20 slides and 20 seconds.
I also found it interesting to look at other peoples research and how they have gone about conducting and presenting it. I was able to identify good and bad points in each presentation which would help me when it comes to the final presentation. Some of them are as follows:
- Speak clearly and slowly
- Have notes infront of you
- Make sure every slide is timed
