Adapted from Wikipedia Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means “having no specific semantic content.” With the nonspecificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning which is left for the reader to…Continue

Programs converting Asemic Characters to Truetype fonts

Wondering if people in this group have any recommendations for (hopefully free!) programs out there that convert our stunning characters into truetype fonts? (I'm using the 2014 Long-Term-Support version of Ubuntu Linux and Win7 operating systems,…Continue

Hello, Franis... font editors, hopefully free

Somewhere in my electronic piling system I've got an old version of the abbyy peoples' font creator/editor but I think I purchased it. They're a group of Russian's and their font and OCR products at least sound very good from reviews on the web. I…Continue

Much smaller, miniature size is Afroditi's "Bicycle". She incorporates symoblic "notes" at the base of this work. Asemic writing, yes?

With Afroditi this afternoon and I managed to have her join this group. Her art work is full of "asemics". Will help by posting her art here:

That is a detail showing her calligraphic markings. She uses egg tempera and the above is an upper left detail of Zeus and the Bay of Thessaloniki looking at Mt.Olympus.The painting is 70 x 100 cm.

Welcome Afroditi, I very much look forward to see what you are doing with symbols in your painting. Thanks!
Comment by Afroditi Karamanli on March 28, 2011 at 3:34pm
I joined up to see the art work here. For my paintings I use a great deal of calligraphic markings. I will post a few later. Now I learned that it could be called "asemic".

Ah, I need to jump in here and offer a gigantic apology. I have screwed up sandpo and by extension trashpo and asemic writing here at IUOMA. I believe Cheryl's responses are the result of something I wrote. I take full responsibility for the mistake; it won't happen again. Cheryl probably took the stance she did and expressed it in the way she did because she mistakenly thinks DK expelled her from the Sandpo movement. DK never did that nor did she even suggest it. Further, Cheryl might believe DK called her "a social parasite and decadent." That was meant to refer to ME, not Cheryl. I need to try to straighten this out with Cheryl, if possible. Please move forward in harmony and peace with asemic writing. I am, as ever, unworthy.
