“Can you hear me now?” by Nancy Bell Scott (Maine, USA)
I’ve been completely intrigued by this new piece by Nancy Bell Scott, and I am excited to share it on Asemic Front. The work applies the concept of – what I call – Deconstructive Asemics to numerals. I find the results breathtaking. Numbers are given colour and are transformed into an expressive symbolism that reveals more deeply their mysterious powers. Concrete poetry seldom uses numbers. Thus neither do asemics rooted in concrete poetry. When I look at the this work and think of the possibilities I find myself asking: Why?
