Asemic Writing by Henry Denander (Stockholm, Sweden)

Henry - 8.30.2015 - 1

Mail art by Henry Denander (Stockholm, Sweden)

August 31, 2015 - I am thrilled to have received a second missive from Henry Denander. The first mail art he sent me is documented on MinXus-LynXus II:

This time he sent what I am reasonably sure is intentional asemic writing. Cursive writing is a fading art/practice and thus becoming harder and harder for the modern, digital mind to read. I have tried hard to read this piece by Henry Denander in the conventional way; and I can only identify random words and numerals, nothing coherent. He has been sending out work that is being identified as asemic by others, although I did also find other examples of his writing online that are incomprehensible to me but apparently legible to others. I would appreciate any feedback. Otherwise, I offer this as an excellent example of what I call purist asemic writing. The card arrived in this envelope:

Henry - 8.30.2015 - 2

And the reverse:

Henry - 8.30.2015 - 3

Many thanks to Henry Denander!
