A photo every other day keeps the Doctor in play.

On Facebook I joined a group called Asemic Writing: The New Post-Literate. Now, the title of this fbpage makes my ass want a pinch of snuff, but, obsessed as I am with alphabets and other forms of writing, the samples posted of “asemic” text and art often but not always tickle this font fetishing voyeur’s eye. 

One definition of asemic is “Inability to comprehend or use communicative symbols, as word or gestures.”  I rather like that, but I think an asemic text can certainly gesture, and also jester. Jest and gesture, alternative to text and texture. The Wikipedia entry begins, “Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means ‘having no specific semantic content,’ or ‘without the smallest unit of meaning.’ With the non-specificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning, which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret.”, but I like to think of asemic texts as the Gospel of Fred (universal psychopomp of the collective unconscious) sprayed on unsuspecting surfaces with a finger of phlogistonic fire.

So there.

A flourish of my Cyranoiac panache (tip of the hat) to Nathan Horowitz, who lead me to it.
