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

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

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

Dear Mariska van den Heuvel, great to see you at IUOMA again and in the asemic group. A piece by Mariska:

O - I remembered something - hasn't this manuscript been narrowed down to a few glyphs? About 20sih??  I sometimes use this technique and consider it asemic writing??? But I've never thought of it as asemic writing, no.

Lisa - interesting observation. This particular manuscript has always fascinated me. Will have to think about this :-) excellent :-)

Great Diane. You know I consider you a serious artist. You should never think I didn't think you were a serious artist because I never thought that. Those asemic symbols near the top are cool - you draw!

Great to see so many here :-) and such a FAB response to the group. Had a discussion with Les this morning about asemics - so, although I was not here, was still peering into the depths of this o so wonderful textual abyss.

Hi Heather, a member of the thriving South African Mail-Art School I think? I see the group as a place for mail-artists who are interested in doing asemics in their work. You can find people here who might be interested in exchanging asemic work. That's up to you. I see it as a place for people to post examples for others to see what kind of work is being done. I'm thrilled we have some people in the group who are really ACCOMPLISHED in this area as well as others who want to learn. So just go with the flow. I'm always pleased to receive asemic work. Thanks for your involvement!

greetings. this is really fascinating. just looked it up. Thanks for the invite. is this a continuation of the theme of the Mail Art concept? where I send art to you? or is it personal art that one publishes on IUOMA?
am loving the differnt directions the art is taking me. learning so much!!

Dear new friend bruno neiva, great link to your work below! I am very glad you're here. I think you bring much. I look forward to seeing more of your visual poetry and asemics. A wonderful example for others to see.
