Spontaneous Asemics

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

I've documented the recent piece Carien van Hest shared here in our group on the Asemic Front blog. Wonderful work. Deepest thanks to Carien and others who are contributing to Asemic Front.

The recent piece posted in the group by Richard Baudet is documented on the AF2 blog. Many thanks!

Wow, thank you Richard Baudet, Carien van Hest and Fike for keeping the asemic fires burning at The Front with great pieces shared!

I'll get back to documenting after a pause.

Fike, who is Schmuel? I like that piece a lot.

And that is a great quote worth sharing. It's probably by Michel Butor and the name got mangled.

Butor is an interesting French writer and I guess now I'm surprised he hasn't entered into asemic discussions before.

Thanks all - more to come.

From Shmuel with the following quote overleaf: [as well as I can decipher through USPS overprinting] "?Writing one cannot understand has enormous power to fascinate but constitutes a very dangerous realm." Micheli Butori

Had f2f meet-up at Asemic Front Headquarters in Auburn, NY, USA w/ longtime collab partner (from Louisiana) DES. A very productive session, which I'm documenting on AF2. Some of the pieces will be mailed.
