“Surrogate” – a collage with asemics – by IUOMA member Amy Irwen (Rosemount, Minnesota, USA)

 

August 21, 2018 - Amy Irwen participated in my Asemic Front project previously with collabs. Now she has sent a beautiful solo collage with asemic writing which I am thrilled to share. The circular asemics are an excellent structural device as are the text-image relations that make this piece visual poetry as well. Here is a closer…

So who wants a 'naked' head in the mail?

Just weeks away from launching my Kickstarter for The Head Project I thought I might have some fun.  I want to send a 'naked' mannequin head to someone.  I will simply write your address on the head, apply the postage, and deliver it to the post office.

So who wants it?  I prefer someone in the U.S. to keep shipping costs down.
