Format for Asemic Book

This is TWO sheets of A4 paper folded in half then nested.  Please use a thicker quality paper for your work - computer paper is too thin and tears easily in the binding process. Again, at the end of the project I will blog binding instructions. You…Continue

Received 5 great vispo pieces (with asemic elements) from Jim Leftwich (Virginia, USA). These are tape transfer compositions.

Received a copy of "Digital Asemics" from our IUOMA founder Ruud Janssen. In addition to documentation, I used the blog to express my views over current debates about asemic writing, vispo and abstract art.

Welcome Mandy Fariello to our humble yet congenial group! Please feel free to post, discuss, question, etc.

I received a wonderful piece from group member Terry Owenby, along with a very nice note.

I received text-based pieces from Joey Patrickt (Oakland, CA, USA). They exist on the boundary between the comprehensible and the incomprehensible & are very interesting, I think. Thx to Joey.

Thanks Jan!  I posted your asemics on my profile page and tagged you in them.  I absolutely loved the colors and the asemics themselves.  Here's to more asemifun in the future!

Asemic for Jason:

Thanks, Jason! Getting better & better, IMHO.

And just an FYI for group members: You might want to consider sending vispo-asemic work to Jim Leftwich's mail art call if you haven't already. Jim is a fantastic visual poet who was literally present at the creation of the current iteration of asemic writing in the 90s, although he chooses to call it pansemic and has some interesting theories.

Anyway, his collab fest is a particularly great venue.
