rosaire appel: “seesongs”, the eyes look, and the eyes read

https://www.rosaireappel.com/seesongs.html

The eyes look, and the eyes read. I propose they can also listen – an act different from both looking and reading. To explore this possibility, I have put together a book of non-linguistic, non-pictorial visual material: Seesongs. The drawings in this book are progressions of visual marks, which could be called asemic music/ notation.
‘When the eye listens, the mind sings.’

on some hypothetical categories of asemic writing / marco giovenale. 2022

Perhaps it is possible, in the field of asemic writing, to distinguish a few —completely hypothetical— categories. I insist that these are mere hypotheses, and that I am not interested in structuring a rigorous theory.

We have (1) concrete asemic writing when only the asemic glyphs and calligraphy, only the asemic letters and sentences are present on the page. No images, no colors.
We can also say asemicrete, a term coined by Michael Jacobson.

We can say we have (2) visual asemic writing when we see the asemic symbols are intertwined, superimposed or when they —in any other way— simply share the page with abstract or realistic images.

We have (3) glitchasemics when an asemic text is evidently disturbed by some kind of glitch: it may even be severely disturbed, but not so much as to make the asemic part completely disappear.

We can say we have (4) abstrasemics when an abstract drawing or image turns itself into something resembling an illegible text, an asemic piece. Or, on the contrary, when a fragment of asemic writing gradually loses any vaguely linguistic aspect and is transformed into an abstract image.

Post scriptum.
At the same time, there are examples of works that marginalize —or do not include at all— an asemic aspect, and I would refer to them as: abstract or realistic paintings (pictorial works, photographs etc.) weirdly called “asemic writing” by their authors; legible alphabets and texts weirdly called “asemic writing” by their authors; monotonous decorations that would hardly be taken for words or sentences.

Palazzo del Governatore, a Parma, fino al 24 luglio ospita Variazione nella ripetizione. Gaibazzi e la scrittura nelle arti visive, a cura di Francesco Tedeschi e Andrea Piazza.
La mostra prende in considerazione l’ultima fase produttiva di Remo Gaibazzi (1915-1994) e dedica un’intera sezione al dialogo dell’artista con colleghi che condivisero alcune sue tematiche: la ripetizione e il ritmo; la scrittura e la sua negazione; il segno come materia. Tra gli altri, Gastone Novelli, Piero Dorazio, Enrico Castellani, Roman Opalka, Emilio Isgrò, Alighiero Boetti, Dadamaino, Vincenzo Agnetti, Irma Blank, Eros Bonamini.

gammm @ discord per la ricerca (letteraria)

https://discord.gg/7qxE5QnbwP

in inglese su discord esistono vari server di letteratura. ma nessuno che, in italiano, si occupi di ricerca letteraria.

ora c’è: https://discord.gg/7qxE5QnbwP

in qualche modo prosegue l’iniziativa (indipendente e in fieri) “Esiste la ricerca?”, avviata con l’incontro allo Studio Campo Boario (Roma) il 16 giugno 2022: https://slowforward.net/2022/06/16/oggi-16-giugno-a-roma-esiste-la-ricerca-incontro-allo-studio-campo-boario/

la scelta di prendere “gammm” come incipit del nome (invece di usare semplicemente “scritture di ricerca”) è dirimente per delimitare gli ambiti tematico-formali che sono in campo.

quindi le zone di sperimentazione di cui il sito https://gammm.org si occupa da sedici anni in qua: montaggio, cut-up, googlism, scritture concettuali, uncreative writing, littéralité, post-poesia, prosa in prosa(-e), flarf, scritture installative, generatori di testo, scritture frammentate / disturbate, minimal writing, found texts, sought texts, percorsi procedurali, scritture non assertive, musica sperimentale, critica non stilistica.
anche, ma in misura forse minore, materiali verbovisivi, asemic writing, glitch, arte contemporanea (più o meno in rapporto col fronte della testualità).
tendenzialmente non ci si occupa invece di performance, di videopoesia, di poesia visiva, di poesia sonora, di letteratura interattiva, di programmazione, di romanzo, di teatro, di cinema, di animazioni.

via negativa and asemic writing / jim leftwich. 2022


Mysticism, whether atheistic or otherwise, has always welcomed a spectrum of experiences valued primarily for their absurdity and futility. The experience of asemic writing, whether one is attempting to write it or attempting to read it, is fundamentally a mystical experience. It is The Face That Is No Face, the Via Negativa.

Let’s say I make a sequence of tangled squiggles, with baggy loops here, jagged-edged bulges there, poncruated with curatorial punctuation marks in the form of randomly tilted ascenders and descenders, moving suggestively from left to right on the foundation of an imaginary baseline. It looks like writing, but we can’t read it, says the entry at Wikipedia. It must be asemic writing, says a contextualized leap of faith.

What if it is, in theory and in practice, experientially, a kind of quasi-calligraphic drawing?

This is not the Via Negativa. It is direct experience of the mystery. Direct Experience of The Mystery. There is no wrong reading, judged and condemned by official authorities on the matter. There are no Official Authorities on the matter. And there is no range of acceptable interpretations of the experience, no spectrum of permitted discourse about the acceptable interpretations.
There is no attempt at reading, not of any variety, and therefore there is no writing, of any variety, asemic or otherwise.

Asemic writing, in its absolute failure to exist, can function in our lives as a kind of pagan spiritual discipline, one designed to give us greater access to the experience of experience.
