Between the Lines
BY SHANTI GRUMBINE
@ VOL 5
ON MAR 15, 2016
"I began this series of newspaper cuts called Kenosis in 2011, after being diagnosed with late stage of Lyme disease. I wanted to engage with the world, but felt very isolated, so I grabbed New York Times. And because reading was difficult, I removed the words instead, because what we read affect how we see, so I started altering images as well."
In Between the Lines from PechaKucha Night Beacon Vol. 5, artists Shanti Grumbine talks about how her experience with Lyme disease changed her artistic process to examine what's not there... by manipulating the NYTimes to show what shadows can reveal.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, June 7th, 2016.

In "Bitcoin #WTF? Saved My Life" from PechaKucha Night Hanoi Vol. 11, Freddie Heartlinee tells a quick story about how he, a founder of a fledgling and failing start-up, luckily found the investment of a lifetime after spending most of his retirement savings trying to save his company.
The implications of Bitcoin's underlying technology totally blew Freddie Heartlinee's mind - and saved his (financial) life. He is currently as passionate and in love with the technology as he was on that fateful day, at that nerdy little meet-up in Vancouver in 2013.

In "Lines and Shapes" from PechaKucha night Baton Rouge Vol. 5, Danny Holmes explains his fascination with lines and shapes. He likes how a few lines can make a simple shape, and a bunch of simple shapes can be added together to make really complex and beautiful things. It’s a lot of fun to look at, but he really likes to hear them.
