(30) The Anatomy of A Street

Chai was born in early November, under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. People born under this sign revere freedom, free-spirited, they are eager to travel, explore the world and learn other cultures. With full support from her parents, and aunt Mrs. Bento, Chai is able to live a life very close to this idea, and she's managed to finish her graduate degree in journalism in Toronto with flying marks.

The Toronto anatomy project is exciting and well-thought-out, both Bentos couldn't agree more. Chai can live with them for as long as she needs. This will give her plenty of time to explore the city. Ginger is the most excited one, clearly infatuated with Chai's idea and couldn't wait to spend time scouting different parts of the city with her cousin.

From the Notebooks (2010-2019)
by Gary Michael Dault

Tabletop Studio (transition)

Having been the subject of over 200 installments of Tabletop Studio, my stalwart (though sometimes rather surly) little homunculus, my surrogate artist, my miniature stand-in, has from time to time given me to understand that enough had indeed become enough, and that he should now prefer to evacuate Tabletop Studio in order to pursue other interests. I have not pressed him too hard as to what these other interests might be.

The other day I found him gazing with something like real absorption at one of the many notebooks I have been maintaining for the past decade. This particular one was from 2016. "Why don't you replace our weekly adventures with one of your notebook pages?" he suggested to me. This seemed like exactly the right idea at the right time, and I thanked him warmly for it.

Seven Duets a Week

Lee Ka-sing began his diptych project in 2014. Over the years, more than a thousand diptychs were created. He describes the project as spontaneously as brush strokes on the pages of a sketchbook, or, a poem written daily. He calls these juxtaposition diptychs DUETS.

SEVEN DUETS A WEEK, is a weekly compiled inbox publication, with selection from his new and earlier diptychs. These diptych photographs, are also available as open editions in the format of 6.25 x 13 inches each.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

India (December, 2016) – The "love-birds" and I spent the day promenading around Jaipur, incidentally stumbling upon a hidden Kali temple situated amid the bustling city markets. We made our way along the winding walkway into a small courtyard with several elevated structures. The delight of exploring the sacred space as daylight started to dim; was the multitude of colourful kites in contrast with the dusking sky.

Adjacency, Series Two
written by Gary Michael Dault
based on photograph by Lee Ka-sing

(Photograph by Lee Ka-sing: Self portrait about fighting with a red rubber cone)

Like a Lawnmower

for the big problems

I have a machine
like a lawnmower

it works best
during afternoons
in June
with buttery sunlight

you push it around
and it coughs up
