If you missed the original performance, here is a reenactment of my “Thumbnail” presentation, based on the theme of “holes,” that took place in Milstein Auditorium, Cornell University, on Nov. 16, 2018.

According to the Thumbnail “Hole” event notice: “Thumbnail follows the Pecha Kucha format — 20 slides, 20 seconds each — to create an interdisciplinary platform for the exchange of various viewpoints, ideas, and topics that affect our everyday. [sic]”
