by "non-meaning," of course i mean "open for interpretation."



up for grabs.

so bruno, are you saying my b locks of characters are not asemic?

because they are actual predescribed characters?

and if i choose to use one of your half-open O's,

in a new language, do they cease being asemic?

or do the old maintain asemiticity, while any new writing

with your characters loses its non-meaning?


i stand on my earlier statement that all meaning in language is essentially asemic and nonasemic, all depending on context.

I would say whether something is asemic or not is highly subjective and dependent on the author/artists INtenTION more than anything else. So to me anything could be asemic even a curved line or ink blot. If someone puts a piece of tape on the wall in a frame and presents it as art, then It becomes art because that is there intention. The viewer is then free to interpret it however they wish. They may decide it's pure crap but it-s still art. Original communication was telepathic so at this moment I am telegraphing you a symbol:)

I don't see it as imitation, but I guess each person's process is different. We visualize first before we put pen to paper. Art is an intuitive process. Our brains are always looking for patterns. They did that study where people were only shown parts of words. Their brains were able to fill in the missing letters automatically. So I think it is only afterwards that our brains try to make sense of asemics based on known symbols and language. Is this the Chicken or the egg?

Superhero, I always meant to ask you if you've seen the movie "Special" It's about  a guy who becomes convinced he's a superhero and it's brilliantly acted. Love the foil beanies by the way! great art
