Visual poem published in H&

H&-still-2

H& is “an occasional journal of visual/concrete poetry and assorted other oddities.” Today, the vispo blog published another of the video stills from “Succubus Highway.” Although the text is distorted from the heavy video processing, the original reads “Wherever there are ruins/lies like flames/dance across time.” Full image available here.

Visual poem in H&

h&-vispo-01

Visual poetry blog H& features a wide variety of image based poems and pseudo-textual experiments. Yesterday, a video still from “Succubus Highway” was posted to the site. You can see the image here. The image includes text veering into asemic territory due to heavy video processing, but the original words read “Wherever there are ruins/lies like flames/dance across time.”

The video itself can be viewed here.

Four visual poems appeared in the weblog The New Post-literate, which “explores asemic writing in relation to post-literate culture.” Asemic writing includes any kind of marks that seem like they might be writing, or suggest some intent to convey meaning. You can view the images here. All four pieces are stills taken from my video poem “Earth Remains Flat,” which can be seen on my Bionic Eyes YouTube channel here.

Poems in H& and Streetcake; new video poem on YouTube

Several poems appearing in the blogoverse this week.

On April 25, one of my video poem stills, “Emit Damage-1” appeared in H&. You can see it here. This is a still from the video poem “Reprogramming Cybertopia.” You can see the entire video on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel here.

On April 23, “Rock Remains Rock” was published in Streetcake Issue #52. You can read it here.

Plus, I posted another video poem on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel. This one’s called “Succubus Highway” because of all the bikini girls on motorcycles.  The text reads “wherever there are ruins/lives like flames/dance across time.”

“Reprogramming Cybertopia”–New video poem on YouTube

This week’s video poem posted to my Bionic Eyes YouTube channel is “Reprogramming Cybertopia.

This one is something of a science fiction story about a UFO invasion during which aliens reprogrammed our two dimensional reality to create a cybertopia based on disinformation. The sphere of control includes mental processing, advertising, reconfiguration of physical space, and the deletion of individual consciousness.

Flashes of awareness interrupt the flow of kaleidoscopic patterns, glitch erasures, and a thick haze of throbbing video distortion. Humans conduct themselves as normal, despite being embedded in an artificial environment.

Video text: “emit damage/and what remains/to defeat real truth”

Visual poem in H& journal

A still image from one of my recent video poems appeared on March 30 in the poetry journal H&. This visual poem is titled “Static-1”. You can see it here.

The text on the image reads: “static/crushed bits/another meme ends.” It’s taken from one of a new group of works centering on lost civilizations, and the fragility of cultures, languages, and nations. The source video was created using a long chain of glitch video devices and other old video effects processors. Some of that footage can be viewed on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel.
