On a hot Tuesday evening in August, a crowd of curious, luminous Miami creatives gathered on the rooftop of the Garden Building in the Miami Design District to see and listen. The topic? Collisions. The first thought might be traffic accidents; interestingly, only one of the speakers, Elsa Roberts of the Pedestrian Safety Walk Project, spoke about actual accidents occurring between cars and people in metropolitan Miami (she subsequently invited the audience to learn more about the behaviors of poor drivers in crosswalks and the rights of pedestrians). But overall, the thrust of Pecha Kucha Miami's Design to Collide was to seamlessly integrate concepts of contemporary art and visual theory, architectural and applied design, interracial relationships and quantum physics, all in 5 individual presentations of 20 slides each, for 20 seconds each.
