Sculptural Asemic Writing by Tom Wray


This piece is based on geometry found in runic alphabets, which have a limited variety of angles. I used 30 degrees and some 45. Runic magic uses overlaid and joined runes to create sigils. The idea was to create random asemic ones that went beyond two dimensions to three. Will this get past the purists? hehe.

A Soliloquy of an Artist’s Mind: An Asemic Writing Scroll by Dipti Karki

This one is a soliloquy of artist’s mind. The background has been created using my body and other objects till the intended mood was created. I liked how the artwork just “became” itself by its own and I was just a medium. This was my first Asemic work and I have never found anything so challenging (in terms of not writing any letters of the languages I know) and yet so satisfying as if I said everything that was to be told.

Selections from the asemic/concrete poetry book Transcripts From A Demagnetized Tape: Vol. 1 by Federico Federici


Click here to buy the book at Amazon.

"Federico Federici is one of the master practitioners of this interesting sub-genre. (He is also contributing to my long-held theory of Neo-Concretism.) That contemporary asemic writers and artists should benefit from the triumphs of the “Golden Age” of concrete poetry is, after all, an indication of healthy cultural evolution: a balance of tradition and the iconoclastic. Working in the context of concrete poetry, Federico Federici uses type-overs (as well as some calligraphy) to generate asemic symbols and structures. I believe this is one of the most promising possibilities for the use of concrete poetry in the asemic realm: The generation of symbols and structures." - De Villo Sloan
