Definition of Asemic Writing - Adapted from Wikipedia

Started by De Villo Sloan. Last reply by david-baptiste chirot Feb 18. 12 Replies

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

Fantastic collabs at Asemic Front 2 by Rosaire Appel (New York City, USA) & group founder and former IUOMA member Cheryl Penn (South Africa). Great stuff!

29.05.19 Dare Ms. Jayne Barket Lyons,  If you are gonna push the rest of us into new levels of seeing & viewing the world it seems a bit much to expect De Villo Sloan to come up with the necessary terminology---although (on second thought) he does seem to be the only logical & concerned Professor in Asemics 101.  Thanx for sharing.   Richard Canard

Thanks Jayne. Perfect. You have another example of what Richard calls "readymade" and I call "found" asemics.

They are things you stumble upon in everyday life that suggest language and text but you cannot read them in the way you are reading my comments here.

Asemic writing via calligraphy is an entirely different process to achieve the same end.

Maybe these humanmade accidents are industrial asemics - we don't have a formal name.

Here is a photo collage of various tiles from our kitchen backsplash. The tile installer made random patterns. The glassy brown tiles stick out for me, and call to mind a secret code. Asemic qualities?? If eco-asemics relate to asemics in nature, what term would one use for this?

De Villo Sloan (New York) and Jayne B. Lyons (Minnesota) collab: Found this on my camera roll from November - another piece using the DVS foundation. Used my iPad. De Villo documented other pieces on Asemic Front: https://asemicfront2.blogspot.com/2018/11/asemic-front-collab-by-ja....

Mark, your view of asemics is somewhat notorious among asemic writers and visual poets. You brought our group to a standstill during the A-16 project back in the day. But I've always encouraged you to express your views. That still stands.

My experience shows this is not a great venue for asemic theory but go ahead if that's what people want.

Mark, I think you create great asemic work, which I think is more important than your theories that most agree are somewhat unorthodox,

I hope you keep sharing in the group.
