Spontaneous Asemics

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

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

Martha, you need to put it in the one-size-fits-all aisle.* (*and don't forget all the exclusions).

Hi everybody. Here goes my first multipurpose work, I need all my energy to keep up with the Shopping Trollly Gallery. It developed a will of its own since it has gone virtual.

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:

"Chickpea pizza with remarks" by Jeff Crouch & John M. Bennett

"The variants of the word look to mean run" by Jeff Crouch & John M. Bennett
