The new issue of Utsanga (#23, March 2020) was released today, packed with visual poetry, asemic writing, text work and poetics to help us while away the quarantined hours. It’s one of the the major journals documenting the international literary avant garde, and a quick glance of this one reveals interesting work by John Bennett/Texas Fontanella, Mark Young, Judith Pauly-Bender, Axel Calatayud, Francesco Aprile…well, it will take a while to check it all out. I’m pleased that the issue includes ten of my visual poems from a series incorporating tape samples (from Chinese newspapers) and asemic writing. You can check it out here.
Very excited to see the new issue of Utsanga released today–this one their 22nd issue. Lots of asemic and visual poetry here from across the international avant garde, including John Bennet, Texas Fontanella, Volodymyr Bilyk, Mark Young, and many more I should be more familiar with. I’m pleased to be included with five pieces of asemic vispo from a new series of work that seems very much like a journal from a far future human colony world on another planet. You can check it out here.
Just released, Otoliths #55, the Southern Autumn 2019 issue, is jam packed as usual with fine text, vispo and hybrid experiments from across the international literary avant garde. I’m pleased to be represented with two new texts, “Gravy Pills” and “Phantom Gold,” plus five new visual poems with asemic writing. You can view them here.
The texts continue experiments with AI language poems, this time using vocabulary drawn from the magical thinking of the average American. The vispo are a small selection from a kind of diary of a extraplanetary colony world.
Utsanga just released it’s third quarterly issue for the year, jammed with great cutting edge poetry and discussions of poetic possibility from across the international avant garde. I’m pleased to be represented with some new work–five vispo images with asemic writing. This is part of a much larger series that I completed this summer.
