X-Peri is an online blog dedicated to “high experimentalism”, which means this is always a challenging and fun read. I’m very pleased to be represented again with two text pieces, “Mermaid Gold” and “Plenty Magic,” plus an abstract glitch video still. The texts are part of a series of experiments involving an attempt to recreate the language of AI computers, these specifically using a vocabulary limited to American magical thinking. You can check them out here.
Another massive installment of Otoliths, something of a journal of record for the international avant garde lit scene, was just released yesterday. This is Issue 57, for Southern Autumn 2020 (as it’s edited in Australia). Tons of new visual poetry, text work, poetry, poetics, etc (all the unclassifiable stuff) for passing the quarantined time and sharing with your socially isolated friends.
I’m very pleased to be part of this issue “Sparkle Plenty,” a long poem based on a restricted vocabulary drawn from American magical thinking in a form that could be some programming sent from one Artificial Intelligence to another. Only 2 of 12 stanzas are represented below. Also, ten pieces of visual poetry with asemic calligraphy, part of a much larger set of work that may comprise the log book of a human colony on an extraterrestrial world. You can check it out here.
