Asemic mail art by Alicia Starr Ryan (Iowa City, Iowa, USA)
Alicia Starr Ryan is a very talented visual artist as well as a friend and supporter of the Eternal Network. She is associated with network visual poetry and asemic writing efforts of recent years. I am pleased to be able to share her work on Asemic Front.
For all the emphasis on theory and method, asemic writers – luckily – are excellent humorists too. They often turn that sparkling wit to satire and parody of the “asemic condition.” This work amounts to a subgenre of great interest and fun. (In fact, David Stafford of New Mexico, USA is making a career of asemic parody.) Most important – I believe – is the gentle reminder we should never take ourselves too seriously!
A very attractive package!
