Art, embodiment, and internal necessity
by William Collen.
The following article was written by William Collen, the man and the mind behind the publication RUINS.
RUINS is William’s blog/newsletter that explores art and aesthetics — specifically, the ways in which artists get their point across through the choices they make in their art. His guiding principle is “here are the remains of the works of past ages; what can we learn from them in our current cultural moment?” My point of view is essentially that of the writer of the Saxon poem “Ruins” (from which his blog takes its name).
