SFAI 140 is an evening of creativity and conversation featuring 20 short talks by some of the area’s most innovative thinkers and practitioners. It is a quarterly event in which artists, members of the community and leaders of cultural organizations discuss ideas and projects in lightning-fast presentations: 20 speakers each with seven slides at 20 seconds per slide (for a total of 140 seconds). The impetus behind SFAI 140 is to create a dynamic, engaged evening where SFAI’s gifted artists-in-residence talk about their work alongside dedicated members of the Santa Fe community.
We asked ourselves: instead of having lengthy, monographic talks by one or two individuals, could we offer just a taste—an amuse bouche—to inspire and create a spark for further, more in-depth conversations? The point is, you’re never going to understand the total depth of someone’s practice. What SFAI 140 gives the audience is a taste.
While the format for SFAI 140 may seem quick, one hundred and forty seconds can actually be a really long time, a profound amount of time in fact. In 140 seconds one can create a tremendous impact and drive change. The Arab Spring came about as a result of people expressing their passions and frustrations in 140 characters, President Lincoln spoke his 272-word Gettysburg Address in a little under 140 seconds. As SFAI 140 reveals, time doesn’t limit seminal ideas and their impact.
