Spontaneous Asemics

Started by Carien van Hest. Last reply by JCW Maine 8 hours ago. 18 Replies

I am curious how members view the phenomenon of spontaneous asemics and if they ever experience something like I did this afternoon. I was tidying my workspace and while lifting a pile of paper I detected marks of ink that got stuck to the plastic…Continue

Hi I am new here because by chance I saw your question. I have used Fontographer to create my own fonts from drawings and it is easy and free. It will work with W7, I think. You need a painting /graphic program to create tiny drawings of each…Continue

Definition of Asemic Writing - Adapted from Wikipedia

Started by De Villo Sloan. Last reply by david-baptiste chirot Feb 18, 2019. 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

If all redactions were as pretty as that, Fike, the world might be a more (insert your choice of adjective) place. But my attention is on the strikethrough. I think that makes me an un-asemic searcher?

Comment by Carien van Hest on April 7, 2021 at 9:58pm

Of course Fike, I could read that clearly!

Comment by Ficus strangulensis on April 7, 2021 at 9:41pm

this is partially asemic, the part in which the page is partly 'redacted'.

I posted the most recent installment (see scan below) of Carien van Hest's asemic journal at Asemic Front 2 (which is a mail art project).

Asemic Front 2: New asemic journal entries by Carien van Hest

I am enjoying being able to share excerpts from Carien's ongoing asemic journal as they come "hot off the press." It is very interesting to watch her progress. After all, how many artists have ever kept an asemic journal? I think others are interested too.

So Carien, no pressure but please share journal pages when you are able. And thank you!

I've just finished documenting 5 b&w vispo collabs (w/asemics) by Jeff Crouch & group member John M. Bennett.

These were sent to me via email & I am hearing a lot about "Email art" these days so I think it's ok to share examples although I still prefer material art.

Thx to JMB & Jeff

The titles are fab:

I've posted a letter at Asemic Front 2 from none other than Jim Leftwich concerning the "femmeglitch" created by Kristine Snodgrass. Some interesting "shop talk" for visual poets, asemic writers & creators of image-text.

I'm posting materials as fast as I can. Thank you to all!

Chronicles of the Unseen: Greetings, for DVS.

Welcome new asemicists! And thx to group folks for the posts.

I am very pleased to post some new collabs at Asemic Front 2 featuring two IUOMA-Ning members who have shaped mail art in the last decade: Kerri Pullo (Arizona, USA) & Michael Kelly aka DSF aka #dsfcult (Massachusetts, USA).
