What is Slideshow?

Pictures tell stories. Stories paint pictures. In between is this thing artists try to get at. Slideshow takes live-without-a-net readings of original stories and combines them with carefully-curated projected images. A merging of two disparate creative processes that will either bring about the end of civilization, as we know it, or provide a deeply satisfying evening of entertainment. We’re not sure which.
