Asemic Front collab by Michael Orr (Clarkston, Georgia, USA) & De Villo Sloan (Auburn, New York, USA)
These snail mail collaborations between Michael Orr and me took a long time as they were scheduled early in the Asemic Front project. I believe they turned out very well as the result of Michael Orr’s contemplation.
For me, these pieces are rooted in the geometry of traditional concrete (typewriter art) poetry. However, they depart into the digital realm showing an evolution in technology (digital glitch images have been integrated). Ironically, these pieces were composed using traditional collage technique (scissors and glue). Granted, some of the outcome is based purely on Michael Orr’s unique and recognizable style. It has been great to be able to work with him.
