Mail art by Maria Morisot aka Moan Lisa (Des Moines, Iowa, USA)

May 25, 2015 - FinnBadger’s (Columbus, Ohio, USA) recent scannerpo experiment stimulated some conversations here about text-oriented compositions in relation to printers, scans, etc.; the concept has been “in the air” lately. Simultaneously, Moan Lisa was interested in ways to generate vispo; so I suggested a kind of scannerbed-rooted layering.

Moan Lisa – or more accurately Maria Morisot – kindly sent me a result of the exploration in a postcard-size format. Maria Morisot appears to have overlaid poems by Jean Garrigue (a fairly obscure contemporary of Elizabeth Bishop and John Berryman) and a page from Queer, William S. Burroughs’ deeply disappointing sequel (if that is the correct term) to Junky.

Maria Morisot’s vispo transcends both Garrigue and Burroughs in this particular instance, IMHO. I did some re-mix work to accentuate the distortion:

This overlaying has and can be used in effective vispo composition. Overlaid text, I believe, can be used in the generation of asemic writing as well.

I am a huge fan of text overlays – if that is not obvious – and so I am thrilled to have and share this work by Moan Lisa/Maria Morisot. Deepest thanks!
