Just discovered that experimental poetry journal published five visual poems on March 12. Check out the images here.
These were pulled from my video Succubus Highway, which was previously published on YouTube.
The first Otoliths of 2018 was released today; this is number 48 for the journal, and as usual it’s packed with innovative texts, visual poetry, and imagery from all over the world. The issue also includes some of my work: “Drowned Lands I-V” and seven film stills. The text work is part of my “Civilization’s Lost” series, examining the fragility of languages, cultures and nations. This piece is in five parts, each based on a different lost city, civilization or continent. You can read the full poem here.
The film stills can be found under another link here. All seven images come from a video that has yet to be edited into its final form. Some of the text was drawn from a spam email and reads “Feel the call of your body.” Other text comes from the captioning on the source footage. I recently recorded some new music, so perhaps that will motivate the final assembly of the video.
Still taken from the raw footage that became “Silenced Scribes.” Watch the finished video on YouTube here.
The original text reads “the words live on/despite the cold and dark/that silenced scribes.”
On of my favorite places for online inspiration, The New Post-Literate is a literary blog dedicated to asemic writing (that is, it appears to be writing, but may not have semantic function). Today five of my video stills with strong asemic elements appeared on the site. These come from an as-yet-unpublished piece, with text drawn from an older poem called “Shit on a Stick Corporation” published by Zombie Logic Press. You can check out all the images here.
H& is a great blog covering “visual/concrete poetry and assorted other oddities.” Today, one of my video stills appeared there. You can check it out at full size here.
The Tone Ghosting music video “The Movie’s On” contains a “secret” flash frame–basically a subliminal image–of the magician presenting the climax of his illusion. Did you spot it in the video? You can watch it again below.
Just learned that experimental poetry blog H& published one of my video stills yesterday. You can view it here.
The new issue of Otoliths, number 47, was released this morning. Another amazing issue filled with visual and textual poetry of all types. It also includes a set of materials from me: a textual poem “The Queen’s Needle” plus a new video using a section of that piece, and seven stills from the video. You can view it all here .
New online poetry magazine Angry Old Man just released its first issue today using one of my video stills as cover art. It also includes four other samples of my visual poetry. AOM #1 is a large issue encompassing textual and visual experiments to expand the notion of writing and written messages. You can check it out here.
