GREG ZENHA @ RED WALL
Greg Zenha, SPAO alumni currently living and working in Montreal, hangs his
work “I SAID HOUSE NOT HOME” at The Red Wall Gallery.
These are Greg’s words:
“I was doing a lot of self analysis and realizing
how hard and long it is. I wanted to make that
process visual . . .”
“It began with me hiding in my apartment for
close to a month, having difficulties with life,
and deciding to try to use art as a way to ventilate
it out. The process was super organic, not planned.
Everything came naturally and sporadically.”
“You don’t have to care about me and my story, it’s
not important. I hope the viewer may then think about
their own story - everybody has that thing that ruined
them, at least I’d like to think that most people do…”
Go have a look.

IF YOU LIKE DROOL
If you follow drool you’ll want (I’m telling you) to check out the STRAYLIGHT
blog. You can even subscribe to it.
Published more often than drool, randomly throughout the week, it’s your
chance to keep up with the status of STRAYLIGHT projects, keep tabs on
what might be in store and get a look behind the scenes. Stuff you won’t
find on drool.
For instance, the latest post there (as of today) is an update on LTT. Turns
out that the whole edit/sequence/juju of the book has changed. Read all
about it here.
And if you like STRAYLIGHT on Facebook you’ll get stuff like The Photo
of the Week straight into your news feed. The upcoming POTW is a
killer shot by Scot Sothern and the story that goes along with it. (Did
I mention that STRAYLIGHT is doing a thing with Scot?)
And, because certain stuff that would have been included here on drool
will now be posted over on STRAYLIGHT, drool will be a bit truncated
from now on.
But the one thing that will be sort of constant here, at the risk of
boring and/or alienating you droolers (but when have I ever worried
about that?) will be a steady, advertising-like, stream of entreaties
to go to STRAYLIGHT and buy something. It can only work with your

AND NOW. . .MORE CONTENT
My San Fran friend Timothy Archibald’s latest blog post is titled:
DID FACEBOOK KILL THE PHOTOBLOG?
As usual, in his calm, thought-out yet inquiring way, he wonders
Me too. Over the past year I have thought more than once about
pulling the plug on drool. I’ve thought it has run it’s course and
wondered if I just keep on writing because it’s a habit.
And I’m still wondering. . .
But, somehow or other, I now have 2 blogs (see above). WTF?
It’s funny. Everyone who cares about media and news seems
to be totally against “the sound bite”, they complain that it
just dumbs down discourse. Then these very same folks go
and adopt the sound bite as their preferred form. Twitter
I realize that these media have their place. But if I see one
more image of “todays’ location” on my Fb feed I’m gonna
gag. They’re just boring. I know, I know, it’s promotion. And
I certainly use Fb for that. mea culpa, what can I say.
But the formula is just all too obvious. It would seem,
though, that obvious is what we in this accelerated culture
crave. We’re all too busy, ourselves, posting the boring
minutia of our lives to stop, think and care.
