utstanga 22

 

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.

An online journal for experimental arts, Avant Appal(achia) just released Is(sue) #8 yesterday. It includes a video, poems, visual poetry, art and stories. I’m pleased to be included with two short text pieces from my series inspired by AI language invention, “Let’s Do This” and “Das Processor,” and five visual poems with asemic elements. You can check it all out on this page–until the next issue when everything will be replaced and a few pieces will be archived: https://www.avantappalachia.com/

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.

One poem and five pieces of asemic calligraphy published in Angry Old Man #7

AOM-7 cover

A new issue of experimental lit journal Angry Old Man was released online on May 29, featuring an encyclopedic selection of works from the international avant garde. I’m pleased to be represented by five more works of asemic calligraphy (view here) and the text piece “Final Days” (view here). Samples below.

The text piece is one of my experiments to replicate machine language, following the lead of the Facebook AI units which detourned English to their own meaning and syntax. These pieces represent transactions of some sort–persuasive messages, negotiations, or something else.
