    "Expeditions are about pitting yourself against nature. This project has frustrated me because much of the struggle has instead been within ourselves (nausea, hunger, exhaustion) and our immediate environment (seats designed during the Spanish Inquisition).

  3. This is a talk I gave at a corporate event on the theme of 'Shift'.
    It was a pecha kucha format so each speaker had just 20 slides which scrolled automatically every 20 seconds.
    Apologies for the audio quality.
