I'd Rather Be Printing
BY J.S. MAKKOS

"This is the first color newspaper ever printed in New Orleans!"
In I'd Rather Be Printing from Pechakucha Night New Orleans Vol. 17, J.S. Makkos shares falling in love with antique printing presses as a youth exploring in his father’s antique shop. This helped define his passion for print making. He came down to New Orleans with a purpose to salvage the detritus and material culture of this city that was being lost in dumpsters and through a sequence of events, stumbled on a treasure trove of New Orleans history.

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.
