Metalmatic by Michael Jacobson is up at AngelHousePress for National Poetry Month

Thanks to Amanda Earl for hosting my asemic piece Metalmatic. I created the piece about 2 years ago using a photo I took and then altering it on the computer, by adding an action figure and the asemic script.

Amanda is featuring a month entirely of asemic writing on her website AngelHousePress for She is exhibiting some great work by some fantastic asemic authors, with a new piece posted each day during the month of April 2019. The show will be up till February 2020. Here is the link:

Metalmatic is the April 11th, 2019 feature.  But be sure to check out the great work of other asemic scribes daily.

Thanks Amanda!

Word Knots and Torrentine by Volodymyr Bilyk

"Here are several pieces i've made out of current Roadrage draft.
It is a visualization technique called Knots. It turns the text into these abstract scribbles. When you're working with some extra large corpuses - it helps you to understand the commonalities and parallels between the words. However, if you use it on a limited range of words (10-15) you get just some abstractions that often look plain mystifying."
 —Volodymyr Bilyk, author of Codex Abyssus

Simon Morley, Crushed Books

Visual space is about looking, while writing space organizes vision, putting it in the service of learning and understanding. The Crushed Book series attempts to prize the book away from the latter and to put it at the service of the former.

Texts by Simon Morley and Michel Cegarra.
