Mail art by IUOMA member Mud Head (aka Chris Reynolds) (Payson, Arizona, USA)
January 2, 2018 - Mud Head sent this spectacular collage deeply relevant to my Asemic Front mail art project. The work is approximately 8 X 10 inches and presented on what appears to be a magazine page.
Mud Head’s work is already well known in the visual poetry community as well as in the Eternal Network (and beyond). He is clearly an immensely talented visual artist. His interests extend to poetry, the occult, asemics, semiotics, the visionary experience and conceptualism.
Thus – as the work above testifies – he is involved in symbol generation and esoteric iconography. His interest in semiotics is of special interest: Mud Head is not only focused on symbol creation. He is involved in the creation of and exploration of larger structures that contain symbols (forms) and relations among symbols (sometimes called visual syntax). I have named this (largely uncharted) study of asemic structures (asemic poetics, asemic syntax) “Asemiotics.”
Mud Head is one of the few and best Asemioticians I know. His work is always of great interest.

Many thanks to Chris Reynolds!
