When I decided to start a blog, I thought about how I might do so in a way that was consistent with my own skepticism of the internet. Specifically, how to blog in a way that did not give in to the velocity and easy voyeurism of internet communication? My solution was to decide to only blog about those things which I had sketched by hand. I am not an artist, that is not the point. A sketch is like an essay: it is an attempt. It is an impression. It retains all the traces of its author–for good or for ill. It is not “objective.” It is not the world itself. It is the naked trace of a contact between mind and world, mediated by the human hand.
That said, I’ll probably put some photographs in my entries, when that suits me.
