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.
