Asemic Naturalist: Sketchbook Pages

After travelling to the exotic lands that reside Beyond the Borders of The Dreamlands at the edges of the Pages of Imagination , the Asemic Naturalist looks through Memories Sketchbook, cleaning the Corners with Creative Curves and Shades. A Map of Figurative Lines and Metaphorical Letters grows and charts the journey that has been taken, showing the way to New Ventures sailing on the horizon.

 

These compositions incorporate some quick production preparation sketches done my wife for  Elliot Lake’s Roundabout Exceptional Puppeteers.  The group was setup by her to provide our local Special Needs community with a  creative & performing arts outlet.  This season’s  performances include familiar characters from popular media culture. Find out more at  their Blog and on their Facebook page.

To a Fair lady Amongst Flowers

to-a-fair-lady-amongst-flowers

 

To a Fair Lady, Playing With a Snake

Strange! that such horror and such grace
Should dwell together in one place;
A fury’s arm, an angel’s face!

’Tis innocence and youth which makes
In Chloris’ fancy such mistakes
To start at love, and play with snakes.

By this and by her coldness barr’d,
Her servants have a task too hard:
The tyrant has a double guard!

Thrice happy snake! that in her sleeve
May boldly creep; we dare not give
Our thoughts so unconfin’d a leave.

Contented in that nest of snow
He lies, as he his bliss did know
And ’to the wood no more would go.

Take heed, fair Eve! you do not make
Another tempter of the Snake:
A marble one so warm’d would speak.

Edmund Waller, 1606-1687

Grand Guignol: Asemic Advertisements

grand-guignol-1

 

 

 Here are Asemic Advertisements for  the Grand Guignol.  They proclaim the emotional breakdown and horrific physical destruction of  language & meaning in a world where opinion outweighs factual reporting – messages that are post factual / counter informative. The truth is turned upside down and twisted into layers of emotional beliefs that distort the fabric of public discourse.

grand-guignol-2

Starting with term, Grand Guignol, and  incorporating translated lines of a description of the Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol,  text was digitally modified and layered. One method of modification  is to take one letter in a stylized font and then distort it by flipping / turning perspective. Another approach is use a stylized font with another language that does not have a wide recognition. Once the the words are flipped, the brain has a more difficult time assigning a semantic context, because the font and letter configuration are so unfamiliar. Of course, those familiar with the language will be able to spot some clues, but the font style combines with other distortions in shape to still act as an interference to processing.

 

 

( Music by Eubie Blake playing the Charleston Rag )

Bringing these methods together with other  mixtures of letters and words, as well as Asemic drawings that emulate the codes and conventions of a writing system, produced  visual representation of post factual / counter informative messages.  So, now step into The 21st century Grand Guignol of Social Discourse, and be horrified as you witness truth and factual arguments be butchered before your eyes.

 

grand-guignol-3

 

Note: Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol : “The Theatre of the Great Puppet”)—known as the Grand Guignol—was a theatre in the Pigalle area of Paris. From its opening in 1897 until its closing in 1962, it specialized in naturalistic horror shows. Its name is often used as a general term for graphic, amoral horror entertainment, a genre popular from Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre (examples include, Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus, and Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi and The White Devil), to today’s splatter films.
