mixed asemics 1-3

 

 

 

I’ve been experimenting with blending collages, asemic compositions, and photographs, and then applying a variety of visual effects – pushing deconstructed text and asemic art into what I call expressive abstractionism & revealed  oblique existentialism. The compositions are, at least, aesthetically pleasing/interesting absurdist pieces of transformed text.

Dadaist Collage Prose Poems: Mastodon Sequence

As an experiment in both Mass Media Principles and creative writing constraints, I have been composing Dadaist Collage Poems within the limitations of Mastodon Toots(text-posts). A Tweet has a character limit of 280 – which works well with micropoetry, such as haiku, senryu, and tanka. A Mastodon Toot has a 500-character limit, which allowing for hashtags provides for a longer composition.

Each Mass Medium has its own set of codes and conventions. When you choose to create within that medium those codes and conventions become an implied space that provides both possibilities and limitations to the creative process.  The number of characters constrains the word choice, as does the choice whether to include hashtags. Also, the layout of the  public post is slightly different from how it appears on the shared Timelines of the users’ accounts – in effect, creating different visual configurations for different target audience.

****NOTE: Images used in this blog post were from the shared Timeline Toots. Click HERE to see them on my public Mastodon.art site.

The text for the poems was acquired from a Random Word Generator and bits of word and phrases from an assortment of online articles. They were then processed and edited within the constraints of the Mastodon character limit. So far, I have composed three of these Mastodon Dadaist collage prose poems.

 

 

 

 

Map of American Gun Laws

In an Alternative Reality, with an Alternative History, American_GunLaws wouldn’t be such a recurring issue. This absurdist deconstructed text of a map would not be such an accurate depiction of American gun restriction laws and contradictory attitudes surrounding them.

The above was originally posted on Mastodon.Art – links connect to Mastodon social media platform.

 

From the blog,  Envisioning the American Dream:

There have been more mass shootings so far in 2022 than there have been days in the year ~ 27 alone have been school shootings.

Today is day 145 of the year, and the country has already experienced 213 mass shootings.

Two hundred and thirteen such attacks in 21 weeks. This averages out to about 10 a week.

A Blitz Poem (??)

 

glipnitch over glipnitch

glipnitch under glipnitch

 

glipnitch for sail

glipnitch in sognifs

 

sognifs under sognifs

sognifs forged sognifs

 

sognifs fizzed glipnitch

sognifs transformed tilt-jabs

 

tilt-jabs leave boats

tilt-jabs phased tilt-jabs

 

tilt-jabs over glipnitch

tilt-jabs congeal contfruntches

 

contfruntches flutter sognifs

contfruntches sognifs contfruntches

 

contfruntches glist glibnitch

contfruntches tilt-jabs chesfrunks

 

chesfrunks glibnitch chesfrunks

chesfrunks congeal chesfrunks

 

chesfrunks sail goats

chesfrunks flay skesfrupchitz

 

skesfrupchitz slay groats

skesfrupchitz conflate skesfrupchitz

 

skesfrupchitz inflate sails

skesfrupchitz tilt-jab chitzrupskers

 

chitzrupskers malign chesfrunks

chitzrupskers magnify chitzrupskers

 

chitzrupskers glow groats

No gluzxltches were mihgfizjyilexed in the composing of this Blitz Poem. The spelling & grammar software is in the corner pitifully weeping & gibbering a glibnitch over slerkrouphjethers in a glow-groat of chesfrunk tilt-jabs.
