"That's one of the most fabulous clocks I've ever seen.  Hard to believe it's from 1885, but Horta was a leader."

"Art nouveau... This clock is designed by Victor Horta, around 1885. The irregular but fluent lines remind me of asemic writing. "

"Hi thanks for your comment on The Face of Trashpo, the proper title for Mask Catt. I wonder if you received snail mail from me? It was Foldilope #9 which is dedicated to DK and Trashpo. "

"Mail Art Martha secures her title "Legend of Trashpo" w/ this down-in-the-dumpster composition. When I look at it I feel chills that I have not felt since the presence of DK."

"Hello De Villo Sloan, thanks for the comment. I did the editing and upside down way extra, because you can´t read it anymore. I thought , the not reading anymore part, is a prerequisite for asemic. Is that assumption right? Yvonne"

"Dear Yvonne Kettner, really interesting work and I think could be called asemic. Here is a question that comes up A LOT in vispo & asemics, no kidding: Are those pieces upside down? Should they appear at AF2 exactly as they appear below. Again,…"

Hi thanks for your comment on The Face of Trashpo, the proper title for Mask Catt.

I wonder if you received snail mail from me? It was Foldilope #9 which is dedicated to DK and Trashpo.

I don't know if  it is 'human error'' ( my own fault) or the technology getting in the way but I missed your comment of December 28. By now I cannot remember to what it referred but it was nice of you. Thanks!

Oh, my eyes are watching me and so are yours! It has taken me a few days to even realise you left this link. My apologies but I don't have a watch and I run by a different time. It's usually very fast but sometimes I am a bit slow too; depends on routes of diversion. But when it comes to trashpo, nuevo or old-vo, I haven't even got onto that path yet. So I am very curious to find out where I am going. Thank you in advance, devil-lo.

love the scan of the P. Orridge collage! Im a big fan of a lot of their work....yes Gen was both very human and very cosmic.... thanks for sharing! I will surely send some things your way very soon...just about caught up with responses after a few days off that routine (partly due to a couple cassette collaborations I needed to finish up and mail away)

More soon,

Mah Nu
