notLoire is a digital sketchbook and archive of sorts – a place to keep track of  my studio notes, project progress, research, etc. I post images, write, re-blog, quote news, and collect photos. I started this blog October 1, 2008 and went public February 2010. More of my web wanderings and other artist links are on my other blog: LorieLinks.
I don’t really keep this blog up anymore. I do post to Instagram and Twitter.

Thanks to Barbara Weissberger for the title inspiration. She calls me Loire – my spell check name.

not Loire is Lorie Novak, an artist and  She uses various technologies of representation to explore issues of memory and transmission, identity and loss, presence and absence, shifting cultural meanings of photographs, and the relationship between the intimate and the public. Her collectedvisions.net, 1996-present, exploring how family photographs shape our memory was one of the earliest interactive storytelling sites. She is  Professor of Photography & Imaging at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
