Incite 3: The Art of Storytelling

Brinley Froelich

This is a little late to my site, but better late than never, right? Anyway, I was really excited when I found out this piece was selected for Incite 3: The Art of Storytelling.

This was a particularly emotional piece for me to make. In the wake of Dan's passing, I finally took on 2666, a daunting tome, but a book he highly recommended to me that I always put off reading. This piece was inspired by The Part about Archimboldi, when Hans dives among the seaweed and becomes so enraptured by the species that he almost drowns among it.

It's funny, the things we become obsessed about as children rarely leave us, despite growing up, taking on new responsibilities, and most likely forgetting about those things for a time. Not that 2666 is an uplifting book, nor is the passing of a friend a time for inspiration, but I think remembering those sparks of passion we felt in our childhood can fuel us as we go through the anxieties of being an adult. I know it's what kept Dan going through his. 

Anyway, before I wax too emotional... I leave you with a few of my favorites from the book. Truly humbled to be included in this collection.
