The Art of the Blog

Golf Landscape collage by Sebastian Matthews

Blogs are compelling to me due to their backwards chronology. In discovering one, the reader generally sees the most recent post first. Earlier thoughts are revealed later as one navigates the blog. The non-linear and interactive qualities inherent to a blog can make for a very poetic experience.

This week I'd like to point out the simple yet compelling blog of Sebastian Matthews called
3 by the Fire. Matthews is a writing instructor at Warren Wilson College, and it's nice to see that he creates visual art in addition to his literary impulses. His blog is a documentation of collages, photography and the work of people who inspire him.
