Modern Day Collaging

I’m getting really into this collage book, and it’s making me think about collage as a modern art medium.  I have a friend who posts a lot of collages on her art blog, among other things:

looking at her stuff got me thinking, so I searched for more collage blogs:

It’s definitely interesting to think about how we perceive collages today – while in Victorian times collages were intrinsically tied to gender and aristocracy, in this era neither of those categories seem to apply.  For example, the second link is a blog by a man and art/artists in general are more tied to poverty than to wealth in this day and age.
