Asemic Tech opens February 28th 7:30 pm at Punt Multimedia in Barcelona Spain



https://www.facebook.com/events/417183728627810/

La escritura Asemic es muda, abstracta, e ilegible. Asemic significa no tener un contenido semántico específico, o sea que es una escritura sin un significado definido. Es una visión estilística de la escritura, que no se puede leer, sino observar.
Cualquier tecnología sirve para hacer Asemic: un palo en la tierra, una pluma en la mano, una tableta gráfica, inteligencia artificial…
Esa forma de arte antigua ha tenido una explosión de popularidad gracias a sitios web (asemic Magazine, Facebook, Tumblr, The new Post-Literate, Asemic.net…).
Artistas / Escritores usan internet para compartir sus obras entre ellos y con el mundo, y forman juntos una comunidad próspera.
Esta exposición será una instantánea de obras Asemic que estén ligadas con la tecnología digital.

Asemic Translations: March 25th 2017 at Minnesota Center for Book Arts & co-sponsored by Rain Taxi

ASEMIC TRANSLATIONS

Saturday, March 25, 2017, 7:00 pm
Minnesota Center for Book Arts
1011 S Washington Ave, Minneapolis

Asemic writing is a wordless semantic form that often has the appearance of abstract calligraphy; it allows writers to present visual narratives that move beyond language and are open to interpretation, relying on the viewer for context and meaning. For this unique event — held in conjunction with the MCBA exhibition “Asemic Writing: Offline & In the Gallery,” the first large-scale exhibition of asemic art in the United States—various poets and scholars will “translate” asemic texts into performative works. Presenters include John M. Bennett, C. Mehrl Bennett, exhibition curator Michael Jacobson, and others to be announced, with a musical performance by Ghostband.
This event is free and open to the public, and is presented by Rain Taxi and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. We hope to see you there!

Aswrig: A new Facebook Gallery for Asemic Writing from Marco Giovenale

"I've created a new online asemic writing gallery/page. Aswrig is here: https://www.facebook.com/aswrig

It's not open to submissions: it only --quickly-- reblogs stuff posted here and there on the net and in facebook groups. 

It's a simple fb gallery. not a site nor a mag. it's an independent and anarchic page.

Take a tour through the works: the gallery is open to all visitors, 24/7, with no restrictions (no matter if you're logged in facebook or not)."

- Marco Giovenale
