Asemic writing by Donmay Donamayoora (Connecticut, USA)
November 12, 2018 - Donmay Donamayoora, from India and living in the USA, is well known in the international asemic writing community. Like many asemicists she participates in the Eternal Network in various ways. Donmay sent me this original work for Asemic Front 2 via snail mail. Now I have an original, hard copy piece for the AF archive!
While digital work is immediate and convenient, being able to see and touch the material work by the artist/writer adds an entirely new dimension. That's one reason why AF2 encourages everyone involved to circulate their work via snail mail and to collaborate via that medium. The Cult of the Authentic is alive and well, and it is still hard to imagine art that only exists in the digital realm without a physical counterpart, although certainly that genre is growing at a tremendous rate.
Donmay Donamayoora - in my estimation - is another of the great, contemporary asemic calligraphers. I have been very fortunate to publish her work on Asemic Front. Having an original piece to study is invaluable to me, and I am honored she took the time and effort to send this. Of course, Asemic Front 2 readers do not benefit as much since your point of view is still online, except for the possibility my own comments might be more insightful. But I have done several detail studies that reveal her intricate, complex and layered style to provide depth and breadth.
